Life and health

About a month ago, I wrote about my goal of getting healthier after the surgeon who performed my gallbladder surgery warned me that I had a dangerous amount of abdominal fat. Many times in the past, I’d tried to lose weight. I’d do the counting calories thing and even fasted. I’d lose a little bitFortsätt läsa ”Life and health”
