A Supercharged YOU....
The weight loss industry turns over billions of pounds every year & is growing! Sadly waist lines too are expanding at an astonishing rate. See here for what the World Health Organisation has to say.
Several long term follow up studies have shown that the success rates of diets over time is dismal at best, in fact it is estimated that approximately 95% of diets simply do not work over the long term - Bennett, W.G and Gurin, J.
