Dear friends, how many times do we have to go over the fact that exercise doesn’t make up for your bad eating habits? Is it really necessary to mention that good nutrition is a flat tummy’s best friend? If so, let me put it this way…

Exercise – Nutrition = Plateau

Exercise + Nutrition = Progress

I realize that most of us need a roadmap when it comes to grocery shopping. On one hand, we’re constantly flooded with countless articles and social media posts that contradict one another when it comes to the foods that we should buy.
