At the time of this writing I am now 205 pounds and my hypertension is gone. What a relief.I accomplished this when I found a diet program that gave me software that I could use to plan my diet menus and it provided a forum for support.. But those weren't the best things about this diet. They actually have a live person to help you. I could post questions and get quick responses. All of this combined made the diet one of the easiest I have ever gone on. So I just want to give a shout out to Cara, thanks!
