Ladies don’t need special chips

Are you on a “lifestyle” and don’t even know it?

Are you on a “lifestyle” and don’t even know it?

The word “diet” is passé. Nobody would be caught dead admitting to being on a “diet.” Because: Diets make you fat. Diets don’t work. And diets are restrictive and punitive. But here’s the thing….nobody is on a diet anymore,...
