My website Pain B4 Gain was inspired by my passion to get healthy and fit…not just for me but people that surround me. I have done so much research in the past 5 years on just health and fitness along and would like to help others that just does not know how much your health benefit you from your young days to your older days. I have helped myself and others get motivated by eating right and exercising daily so I decided to make a website/blog of my everyday fitness, health-lifestyle that can also help others.
I wrote my first health plan a few weeks ago that is guaranteed to help you lose at least 5lbs in the first 7 days.
I recommend NO MEAT for the first 7 days just to naturally detoxify your body from all the bad eating like red meats, sugar, fast foods, processed foods etc. IT IS HARD…BUT THAT’S WHY I CALL IT “MY PAIN B4 GAIN”. This is your pain from eliminating all process foods from your body for just 7 days. Pain is better than gaining the unnecessary weight!
