If you want to lose fat switch your diet to whole grains for carbs, lean meats for protein. The only fats you need to worry about are trans and sat fats. The other 2 fats mono and poly help stimulate metabolism. Forget about the shakes not good for your kidneys. You need some cardial of course at least 20 minutes 3 to 4 times a week. If you want to melt the fat off add some forslean. Find it in vitamin stores it's scary how good it works and it's not a stimulant pill.
