Show the snake diet segment. I'd like to see how the doctors went on and on about their credentials rather than trying it out and actually having experience with fasting. The snake diet is changing lives; I want to make sure it gets popular. Show your subscribers the segment. Snake diet for life!

My mom made me do diets including weight watchers at that age anyways, it’s up to the parents if teens do this program and parents are choosing dieting for their teens already anyways.
