It's a topic I do read a bit of and enjoy watching documentaries. Unfortunately the medical system in Ireland and the UK is a bit one tracked when it comes to cancer. People are lead to believe that your only options are Chemo and Radiation and that's it.

In the pursuit of weight loss, or more specifically, fat loss, making your diet work in your favour is of paramount importance!

Remember these 7 movements and you wont go wrong.
All my life I've always wanted to be the best as whatever it was I was doing. I've always set my goals high, full of ambition and wanting to achieve. The only downfall with this mentality is physics. For every action there's an opposite and equal reaction.

However there is definitely light at the end of this tunnel.
