Calorie Amnesia

Are You Suffering From Calorie Amnesia?

Famine

Mind Blown - A Brief History Of Obesity!

Once upon a time there were our hunter gatherer ancestors. They died a lot. Usually of STARVATION. The ones who survived?

Why There's No Such Thing As Unhealthy Foods!

We've had a response on our page... "I disagree Liam. Surely it wouldn't be healthy or good for someone to eat McDonalds (as an example) every day even if they were under weight?
