New Year, New You!
It’s a New Year! For many of us, that means we having to shed Holiday pounds. This time of year, media can be flooded with weight loss advice and fad diets promising to help you lose weight fast. According to the Center for Disease Control “such diets limit your nutritional intake, can be unhealthy, and tend to fail in the long run. The key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight isn’t about short‐term dietary changes. It’s about a lifestyle that includes healthy eating, regular physical activity, and balancing the number of calories you consume with the number of calories your body uses.” (cdc.gov)
