    Wonderful as always! I want one of “them magic bullets”. I don’t even care about the donuts. I’d love to have it and just eat normally with a little less stress involved. If it works though, I’ll probably be like 80 by the time they make it available for the public! Then I won’t be able to remember to take it!
