I was thinking today, gee… most people know what to do to get healthier why aren’t they doing it? Well we slack off, start to eat more, drink more,.. and get to a point where we don’t care anymore…Well before you spend any money on  magic pill or a diet plan that won’t last, check out my Top 12 “Captain Obvious” tip.  Implement these and just like magic, things will start happening.
