Weight Loss Diets Demystified!

Weight loss diets… Yikes! There are so many to choose from it, just thinking about choosing the right one could make your head spin. Well, I am here to try to help clear the confusion and hopefully make your decision a little easier.

An Informed Decision Is Your Best Choice

I have included a handy dandy comparison chart for you to use, this way you can make an informed decision when you actually see all your choices laid out on the table all grouped together. The effectiveness of each plan is scored by apples, one apple being the worst and with five apples you have the best. The apple is followed by a decibel point and then number. Reason being, I couldn’t get the apples to cooperate with cropping them to get a finer degree rating so I just followed them with the decibel and number.
