Patient discussion about baby fat

Q. I'm 42 yrs old and am still trying to lose post baby fat. I have tried combination of meds to lose about 10Ibs. I exercise 5 times a week - walking and swimming but my extra pounds remains the same. My diet plan is good and I do loads of walking as well! I won’t eat snacks. I'm 42 yrs old and am still trying to lose post baby fat. I need some suggestion. Thank you.

A. My friendly recommendation is to consult a natural health physician and measure your PH level, follow his instructions and you will surely get the desired result soon. Another option is to try Chinese herb meds; where Chinese medicine is usually a bunch of herbs that are good for you anyways even if it didn’t get you the results. Chinese system of medication is safe without any side effects like rashes, allergy etc. But I never recommend self-medication.
