  • Diet & Nutrition

    Do you know how much your diet and nutrition affects you? Many people only understand the connection between food and weight. However, what we eat has a much larger effect on us than just how much we weigh. Think of it like this – our bodies need fuel, and the food we eat is the fuel our body uses for energy. What happens, when you put the wrong fuel in your car? It won’t work correctly, and that’s exactly what happens to your body. We’ll introduce the concepts of good diet and nutrition, and provide effective strategies for sticking to your new healthy goals.
