    Greg's Exercise Tips


    A quick workout is better than no workout at all!

    Everyone has long days and sometimes this means little time for exercise.  After eating lunch, try walking for the remainder of your break.   Make the most of the time you have!


    I love the diet and am doing great... I am exercising as well.  The thing I like about your diet is I never feel hunger.  Thanks for all of your help. Reviews...
