I am not a doctor nor am I a health expert. You should check with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise program. Any methods I follow and any statements I make will be from my own interpretations I make from any independent research I choose to do. Please do not take anything I say or do here as advice for yourself. If you choose to follow or copy my methods then that will be at your own risk. Again, it is important for anyone starting a diet or exercise program to first check with their doctor.
