Hello Jennifer,
I found your article yesterday in the Post very interesting. I am a mother of 5 young children trying to lose the 30 lbs of pregnancy weight left behind. I actually clipped your suggestions for best breakfasts & best lunches. Your article is hanging on my fridge as a guide for me to eat better. ”
