We’ve all done it: That moment when you stand in front of the mirror and “pinch an inch,” imagining what you’d look like if you could just wave a magic wand and make it disappear. It’s in our nature to seek out a svelter stomach, to try for a tighter tummy, to wish for a whittled waistline. And here’s the good news: It’s totally doable….especially when you begin your day with a protein shake.
