  1. I'm so glad I found this blog. I have been on IF (18/6;16/8) depending on the days activities and have been thinking of moving to the 5:2 fast but somehow the 2 times I tried it I did not finish. I was doing a zero calories fast which I find very difficult to finish. The 500 calories seem much more doable and your recipes are going to be a great help. Thanks.

    PS: lost 10 kgs since Jan when I started with 2 interruptions due to personal family issues. But what I loved was that the weight gain in those weeks was not as great as I feared it would be.

A precious friend told me about Dr Itua Herbal Center in West Africa,She gave me his contact number and email address,I contacted him quickly so he give me guaranty that his herbal medicine will cure my cancer and i will be heal forever I said Okay.I ask him about the process for the cure,he ask me to pay for the fees which i did and within 7 working days he sent me the herbal medicine then he instructed me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure.I told Gomez my friend about the herbal medicine so he gave me go ahead to drink it.So after drinking it for two weeks i was cured I'm so grateful and i promise i will recommend anyone with cancer to him and that what i'm doing.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Bladder Cancer,Colorectal Cancer,Tach Disease,Ovarian Cancer,Pancreatic Cancer,Breast Cancer,Kidney Cancer,Leukemia,Lung Cancer,Skin Cancer,
