I’m going to try a juice fast this weekend. • What is Jessica at risk for? • What, if anything do you think Liz’s dance teacher should do? • audition is only a week away?ssary, since the Meet Rich: • I’m sick and tired of everybody everywhere complaining about how they can’t lose weight feel hungry all the time.

For lunch, a couple of ham sandwiches. Then a protein bar after practice. For dinner, I’ll go out for burgers with my friends. What more can I do?
