Right Beside You in Weight Management
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is less about short-term dietary changes and more about developing healthy lifestyle choices. That includes nutritious eating, regular physical activity, and balancing calorie consumption with the number of calories your body uses.
Eating whole, healthy foods, having in treats in moderation, and adding more activity to your life will go a long way toward helping you obtain and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
