Diet & Weight Management

Looking for a quick and easy way to lose weight? You’re not alone. Based on information from the Food and Drug Administration an estimated 50 million Americans will go on diets this year. Some will succeed in losing weight, few will manage to keep all of it off in the long run.

One reason for the low success rate is people often look for quick and easy solutions to their weight issues. They succumb to quick-fix claims like “Eat all you want and still lose weight!. They spend billions every year on all types of diet programs and products including diet soft drinks and foods. You’ve heard it all before. The only proven way to lose weight is either to reduce the number of calories you eat or to increase the number of calories you burn off through exercise. Most experts recommend a combination of both.
