    I work a lot of hours and it's a pretty high pressure job. Any good tips for managing stress during the day?

    The bad breath is a side effect of your body burning fat for energy, and it was a problem for me as well for a while. I started drinking a lot more water and it stopped being a problem. Other possible causes are letting your mouth get too dry and bacteria. Try drinking more water and use something like Listerine once or twice a day and see if it helps. As a last resort you can just add more carbohydrates to your diet, preferably with fruits and vegetables. Hope this helps, good luck!

    crb3ll answered the Question: Can I only do one program at a time?

    You can only be on one program at a time, but you can choose any video you want through Discover (http://dailyburn.com/workout_...). A lot of times I'll do a video from my program, and then pick a recovery video or something from discover to do afterwards.

    crb3ll answered the Question: How did you feel after the first week?

    It's normal for some people to have flu like symptoms at some point for up to three days as the body adapts to use it's new primary energy source, fat. Afterwards, you should have much more normal energy during the day rather than the highs and lows you would normally get before and after a meal.

    crb3ll answered the Question: Is 50% of calories from fat too much?

    It is normal when you cut processed foods or foods with added sugar from your diet that your total calories come more from fat than from carbs and protein. Fat contains more energy (calories) per gram than carbs and protein (9 calories per gram vs 4 calories per gram), so when you remove many of the foods with added sugar or high carbohydrate density it's natural for the majority of your total calories for the day to come from fat.

    crb3ll asked the Question: Are energy drinks bad for me?

    I like monster drinks but I'm sure they have a lot of caffeine. Are they bad for me?

    crb3ll commented on michaelk's answer to Is there going to be a Yoga calender made?:

    You should be able to do any video in the program whenever you want by going to "Discover" at the top of the page, and selecting "Yoga" on the following page.

    It's common to have flu like side effect temporarily as your body adjusts to burning fat for energy. It's also common to lose have a sudden dip in weight as your body does not need to retain as much water when your body is burning fat for fuel. For me I got over the hump in 3 days, but some people have reported it taking a full week. Hope you feel better soon!
