Raspberry ketone

FEEDBACK: Tom writes: I think it's great that you want to get in shape, but I think all those cleansing and diet chemicals are not the right way to go about it.  Believe it or not it's the simple things that work.

Lots of exercise, small portions of lean foods.  No pop or other sugary drinks.  It's amazing how much time you have to exercise when you give up TV.  I don't believe 30 minute workouts work either.  You need a long sustained workout even if it is just walking.

If you are looking for something to log your activity I highly recommend the FitBit (fitbit.com).  It's tiny and does a good job of automatically logging and sharing your info if you want too.  My wife got me one and it is pretty motivational.

Good luck with the weight loss.  Thanks for the podcasts.
