Important Notice about Health and Weight Loss
Typical weight loss is 1 to 2 pounds per week. In overweight individuals, weight loss of up to 1% of total bodyweight per week is more common. Faster weight loss in the first 1-2 weeks is common but usually represents water weight loss, not body fat. Faster fat loss is possible, but not likely, safely .
New FTC rules stipulate that I must disclose every time I have been compensated for something: a free t-shirt, an interviewee grabbing the lunch bill, a free product to review or affiliate link.
Please assume that for everything on Runner Gene , the FTC disclosures on this page are all true. I.e., review products were provided for free, meals were comp’d, links are affiliate links, etc.
Thanks for bearing with me as I abide by these new rules. They are designed for your own protection in the interests of full transparency.
