Dr. George G. Mutafyan
"Losing weight and keeping it off can be a challenge. The right diet and exercise can help, but when losing weight becomes a constant struggle, when you spend most of your time trying diet after diet, following the latest fads buying all kinds of pills, only to find out they do not offer you the solution you are looking for. You need options that can help you lose weight and improve your quality of life permanently."
