  1. You are so cool! I don’t think I’ve truly read anything like that before.
    So good to discover someone with original thoughts on this issue.
    Really.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

  2. I must admit it sounds nice and a simple solution when reading, but I’m 200% sure it will be complicated for most of users anyways.

    1. Many people tend to look for excuses to not do anything. It is easier to say “I Can’t” instead of saying “I’ll try.” Thus my case for why there is a rising case of obesity. I have found though, most of the time cost does have an effect on whether to try a weight loss product or not. That’s why I love my products. All of them retail under $40 and if interested prospected customer decides to become a distributor, you get to save 30% off of all future purchases. So why not and give my products a try. They work! Thanks for your concern.
