You can since that oiliness in it...It's loaded with fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K," he said.When it comes to getting a flat stomach, Ordon promised that people wouldn't go hungry on his diet, since they're adding fibre to their diet.

We talk about it all the time: What you do to your body in general is going to show on your face," Ordon said. "It's taking care of your skin from the inside-out," he added.
