If you are going to advertise you could at least check if your sentence makes sense. To err on the side of accuracy I believe the word is "pounds", not "bound". Like many people your spelling checker can not really understand English.

What's wrong with 5 servings of vegetables a day (mixing in however much fruit one can tolerate?)


Oh - and PS: I used to have a filter set to send any email with 'Acai' in the subject or body directly to my deleted folder. Man, sure used to catch a ton of spam! I think they've slowed down a lot, but in its heyday ...

Although I'm only a member, not a mod/admin, I truly feel this thread served no real purpose but to advertise a product, so Ditto to breeze's AYE!
