Q. I want to know if somebody could give me some expert advice on what to eat for my meals. hello ……I'm trying to lose body fat but at the same time build some muscle within 4 months period.

I dropped 3 pounds but I want to know if somebody could give me some expert advice on what to eat for my meals.

A. A good general program of dieting to lose 2lbs a week while lifting weights. Go with a high protein, low carbohydrate type diet. Workout 6 days a week alternating upper body one day lower body the next, take one day off. That’s it as simple as eating and as difficult as working hard. Cheers! and invite me for your birthday.

Q. I heard that division into stages does not exist for fibromyalgia. Can any experts in pain treatment explain?

A. My friend, did you read it from just some where or from a trusted source? For your information that diagnosis is improved so much with the aid of APD that quadrant pain really can be diagnosed and pain n half the body. For the first time, this has made it possible to explain the phenomenon of quadrant pain and pain restricted to one half of the body, which experts in pain treatment had never been able to explain. This corresponds to the 1st stage of fibromyalgia.
