With the current state of the economy, many Americans believe that getting fit and healthy is just too expensive. Dr. Phil tells you how to get in shape for the summer without going broke.
When it comes to losing weight, Dr. Phil says, “Do it right one time. This roller-coaster dieting will kill you. You will gain weight on roller-coaster, yo-yo diets. They don’t work, so why not just say, â€ĈYou know what? I’m going to do this right one time and be done with it for the rest of my life.’ And you can all do it within your budget, I promise.”
