How Alex Lost 20lbs in 4 Days (& why we don't recommend it) | PD Podcast Ep.83

Listen on

Episode notes

Today we are talking about how Alex lost 20 pounds in 4 days. Yes, you read that right. We've all wanted to lose weight for an event or a vacation but this is definitely not the way to do it. After coming down with the flu, Sue and Alex were pretty out of commission for two weeks. Listen in as they discuss how they took time to recover and what they did to feel better while sick. 

As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
