What is the best way to lose weight?

Hi there!  The best way to lose weight is to stay consistent with an exercise program and eat a healthy diet.  A healthy diet includes lots of fruit and veggies and plenty of water to stay hydrated.  Try visiting the Choose My Plate website to help you build a balanced diet.  You can use their food tracker and create a personalized plan for how many servings of food you need from each food group.

- Choose fewer processed foods (froods from a package) and more foods close to their natural form - fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, yogurt, lean proteins like chicken and fish.

- Drink lots of water

- Try creative ways to get in exercise and physical activity.

Be sure to check with your primary care doctor before beginning a new exercise routine to make certain it is safe for you.
