MAKES ENOUGH FOR TWO 12- TO 14-INCH PIZZAS, EACH SERVING 2 OR 3 This is a very easy, no-hassle dough. I use a little more than half whole wheat flour for it; you can vary the proportions and see what you like. It’s an easy dough to work with, just a little bit sticky...

Greek Sweet-and-Sour Baked Beans with Tomatoes, Peppers, and Mint

Glad to announce another weight loss of about 7 kg in less than 3 weeks .
I lost about 8 kg within 3 months, started using the pill and immediately felt an improvement in my performance, focus and feeling of satiety.
Sensational weight loss of 18.7 kg … , crazy !!! On Monday morning I weighed 84.8, I reweighed 3 times to see that scales were working correctly, I was in shock !!!
I lost about 5 kg in 3 weeks … I felt great, full of energy and vigor !!!
Everyone recommended me to lose weight, I tried in all sorts of ways but the weight did not go down! The doctor recommended me to try VIXIV … the appetite reduced,
the desire for bread reduced, the desire for sweets also reduced, the amounts of food consumption dropped by half and I felt satiety … The kilos started to drop
I lost 10 kg in 3 months !!!
I started using VIXIV in December 2020, I lost a lot of weight over 22 kg in a period of about 5 months, feel great and in addition I must update you that the blood tests did not look like that since 2012.
My doctor was shocked by my blood test, I told her I was using the vixiv pill and she said that for about 20 years I had not had such good test results!
I feel great.
