What Does “Dr. Approved” Mean?
We wouldn’t take health and fitness advice from someone who wasn’t qualified- neither should you!
That’s why all of SweatChic’s articles are pre-screened and approved by a real doctor before being published. Nothing is more important to us than providing you and all of our readers with safe, accurate, and quality health advice.
At SweatChic, we pride ourselves on being honest, researched, thorough, and unbiased. We promise never to promote unhealthy weight loss methods, foods or products.
← Whenever you see this symbol you can trust the article has been Dr. Approved!
