I’ve been a model & actress, had been anorexic, so NOT eating was/is a place I’ve visited many times.

OMG what could I have been thinking of? Your detox/cleanse is so doable, and yes I Tivo Dr OZ everyday, no I don’t need to lose any more weight, but I totally believe in cleansing our bodies…it’s like what we do for our car, a little tune up. I went away from dairy milk only because Almond was less calories, then I ran out for a few days & my tummy was upset,(we had fat free in for hubs & kids) I was what’s different? DUH…Who knew? Not me, it also tastes so much better, I mean come on, blind taste test dairy tastes like nothing! Also adore coconut, soy…so much out there, I’m stunned by how many people don’t GET IT?

I usually buy my fish oil locally because I get a better deal…I’ve got nothing to do with them except I’ve been shopping there quit awhile now & they’re prices are good & fast S&H. I brought them up cause I just got a high protein & fiber hemp from them, I’m big on meal replacement smoothies just whenever I feel like it…this stuff is terrible! Holy cow, I tried everything to make it look & taste better…YUCK! What was I thinking of, miss know-it-all, blew it… looks & tastes like dirt (poop)! I actually love green juice and/or smoothies…this is so not that, HELP! When I stumbled upon your perfect web post I was/am in heaven, I’ve been here for like 2hrs, I have been up & down, but yup…you had me at your crustless coconut custard…Bless you and your family, Andrea
