It’s not the collagen in your coffee.⁠ Losing weight is hard. There. I said it.⁠ Losing weight is hard.⁠ ⁠ It’s not a point A to point B process. ⁠ It’s not a one-size-fits-all plan.⁠ It’s not a start today, see results tomorrow timeline.⁠ ⁠ It’s a combination of a bunch of things…⁠ time, effort, discipline, science…⁠ and more. ⁠ It’s not the collagen in your coffee, my friend.

Papa bear’s stuff was too big, and mama bear’s was too, but baby bear’s things? They were ‘just right’.⁠ That’s what you want to achieve with your blood sugar.⁠…
