  1. Thanks for letting me know Erik! I'll have to track this down!
  2. The thread on Fiber-Plus drinks got locked, but I wanted to report back. Basically, pro is that thereís fiber in it and it definitely makes a difference in digestion, con is that itís a soft drink and you will still feel crappy if you drink a bunch of soft drinks, even if they put fiber in them. So nothing unexpected, but figured I should follow up anyway.
  3. Hey franc! I am not aware of such a drug but i'm sure it's been thought of!
  4. Hi Coach,
    I was wondering if I could ask you a question. Are scientists working on a drug that instigates hyperplasia of subcutaneous fat cells? Just really curious. Thanks for your time.
  5. I posted today's DL. Thanks for the coaching.
  6. I posted a new DL video. Will you take a look?
