I much prefer facing the sun and focusing on the things that I CAN do rather than berating myself for all the things that I …

Find Yourself Suffering with IBS?

The other day I asked members of my Facebook group to see how many people suffer with IBS symptoms like gas, bloating, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, nausea, and cramps.

All my life I struggled with weight and yo-yo dieting. I went through various phases until I came out the other side. 10 years ago, I was a self-proclaimed package queen and up until that point I had already tried umpteen million unsuccessful diets and cleanses. Some of them included eating low-calorie with high exercise and high fat and no exercise. I really had no idea what I should be doing and when to do …
