Not only was it the easiest diet she ever tried, she realized it is truly a lifestyle to help her and others live a normal life. She gained back her energy, lost pounds and inches, and dedicated her life to helping others who want to live the low carb lifestyle. This is Linda’s 2nd visit to CarbSmart.
