I only had the first question wrong. Though I have never actually used apple cider vinegar, I thought it did work. Good I never tried it then :)

I disagree COMPLETELY with the statement that Bikram yoga is "is not a long-term weight loss strategy." That's SO NOT TRUE! Bikram yoga is a WONDERFUL workout. It's one of the truest forms of Hatha yoga out there. There's no "fluff" to it, which is what you get with a lot of Americanized forms of yoga. Additionally, Bikram provides a fantastic cardio workout. It's not just stretching. The heat helps jack up your heart rate and really gets things pounding. Your muscles will never be the same after attending a few Bikram classes. We talk about how building muscle can increase your metabolism... Well, you know what? That means you burn calories more efficiently. Which leads to WEIGHT LOSS. And if you become a regular practitioner of Bikram, you will constantly be challenged and have "long-term weight loss."

6/6. It is amazing to me how people are still believing the crap out here about diets. It is nutrition and exercise. A lifestyle change. It is what it is. No shortcuts, gimmicks.
