New Question!!

This week's question comes from a blog reader named "Mr N Freitag". His question (reprinted with poster permission) is: "I am preparing for a trip to Maui, Hawaii in December of this year with my wife to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary (congratulations, Mr. Freitag!!) and I want to look good with my shirt off. I'm not looking to become a body builder, I just want to lose a few pounds before the trip as quickly & as naturally as possible. Any suggestions ?"

There you have it readers, "Mr. N Freitag" wants to impress his spouse on the sandy beaches of Maui, Hawaii with a naturally well-toned body. I'm glad he's being realistic about because no diet can give you instantaneous results, but if it is a well-balanced program, it can produce results.

Thanks 2much2much, I was a bit disappointed in not seeing any comments besides yours, but I understand that people have a lot going on in their lives and that health may not be tops on their lists. I am also working on a few things as well and I will be posting about it soon. My answer to this question is forthcoming. Please be patient. Thank you again for posting.

Zero Cost Weight Loss

"If it's for free, its for me."                                  --A good friend of mine
Low cost is great, but free is always better....

Weight loss plans can become very expensive when you consider all of the diet aids and techniques you may have to utilize to reach your goals. 

Today's economy almost precludes you from aggressively pursuing an effective weight loss program due to the anticipated expense involved.
