This week (January 16-22) is the 18th annual Healthy Weight Week. Basically we want to spread awareness that fad diets for rapid weight loss are not only potentially dangerous, but don’t work in the long run! Yes, they may help you lose weight initially, but as far as keeping it off…don’t hold your breath! Long-term weight loss requires a full understanding of good nutrition and active, healthy living, plus the self-discipline to adhere to those guidelines. With quickie weight loss gimmicks, you could lose weight at first but you don’t really learn how to ideally sustain it.
Bottom Line? Healthy Weight Week aims to draw attention to achieving your individual healthy weight as part of an overall healthy lifestyle.
