Spring Training Video Series

This past Friday, March 31st, we completed the diaVerge 15 day Spring Training Video Series.

We brought you  a short video every weekday for three weeks, discussing one aspect of low carb eating: tips, tricks, mindset, goal setting and so much more.

If you missed it, you can find these all posted on the diaVerge Facebook page and on the diaVerge Youtube playlist

Since I included additional information and links many of the videos, we're adding the 15 day series here so you can access each video at a glance and view the topics that are of interest to you.
