What a Pleasant Surprise

While many clients come to me in order to lose weight, there are usually health issues involved that are more important to address than just losing the extra weight.

Combating Adolescent Obesity

February 5, 2019, by

Often, my dieticians and hear about how healthy someone thinks they are eating. “After all,” they tell us, “I am careful to buy products with no harmful ingredients and I always try to buy something that contains whole grains, low salt, low sugar, no additives, no cholesterol, etc.” The problem is, they are being fooled
