WHAT¹S YOUR LIFE WORTH? When you¹re drowning, the last thing you do before you go unconscious is take a breath.

Author Fred Cuellar inhaled food his whole life until he reached his breaking point in his battle with weight loss. Right at the moment he was ready to give…"The Buffer Zone Diet by Fred Cuellar – Review"
