  • I am using a portion control product that has No drugs, side effects or stimulants, it is Dr formulated and patent-pending . It is a First to market product which means there is NOTHING out there like this. I lost 4lbs and 5 inches in my first week on it. it is amazing, I am also doing some at home workouts to help tone and i heard bio oil is really good for strech marks i should get some too lol :) If you would like to know more about what i am using to lose weight feel free to PM me or visit my site to learn more.

  • Drink water! Half your body weight in ounces. No hydrogenated oil! Read your ingrediant tabs. Fiber! No white pastas or breads. Breastfeed! It pulls in your uterus, abs, and burns around 500 extra calories a day!

  • Fruit. Eat lots and lots of it.

    I have a flat stomach which is nice from eating so much fruit..and bundles of energy too.

  • There is no cream or lotion etc. that you put on your skin that will get rid of stretch marks. The best thing to help with that & is free is exercising. Great news - that works for weight loss too ;o) As for dieting, I don't believe in it. I eat what I want in moderation and try to keep balanced nutrition and pH. Now, I am cheating with my stretch marks after baby #2. I am saving my money up to have laser treatments to zap those suckers away cuz exercise and time only does so much.
