You are biologically programmed to protect your fat stores. As you eat less, your metabolism slows down to conserve energy.  If your brain thinks it’s starving, your body responds, trying to keep you alive, making it almost impossible to lean out.

Do diet pills work for weight loss?

With more than 65% of adult Americans currently on some form of attempted weight-loss plan, the carbohydrate question is one we hear very often.
