Honestly, as a person who's struggled with being overweight for my entire life, I realized all the weight loss tips and tricks you see online and on TV are completely wrong. I lost weight the best and quickest way possible, I even wrote a blog about how I did it. If you're struggling with losing weight, read my story and try it for yourself. It will work.
