We get information about nutrition and health every day from many sources – newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, health professionals, family and friends. Unfortunately, there is a lot of conflicting information out there about nutrition and weight management. This program can help you make sense out of the confusion.
Nutrition isn’t about what you can’t or shouldn’t eat. Rather, it’s about knowing what and how much to eat and developing a plan you can follow for the rest of your life. And, weight management isn’t just about eating. Physical activity and exercise are just as important, maybe even more important, as nutrition in long-term weight management.
This kit will help you get started on the way to eating healthier and managing your weight. You will find lots of tips and hints in this kit to help you eat healthier. Keep in mind that every nutrition tip won’t help every person. You will need to decide which ones are realistic and acceptable to you. Whether your goal is to improve your health by fine-tuning your eating plan or to lose weight and keep it off, this program can help.
When it comes to weight, this program focuses on weight management, not just weight loss. With weight loss programs, the major focus is on appearance. Although helping you lose weight and look trim and fit are goals, the primary purpose of our weight management program is to help you to achieve and maintain good health. And, even if you currently are not overweight, you need to keep from gaining weight in the future. Successful weight management means preventing weight gain in the first place.
