Trim Down for Spring
Good health is all about proper diet and nutrition.
Diet is not about losing weight. It’s about supplying the body with the proper nutrition it needs to function. We feed our bodies with calories and we burn those calories in order to function. When we bring in more calories than we burn, the body stores that energy as fat. To burn that fat, we have to burn more calories than we consume. To stay healthy and fit we need to balance the calories we take in with the calories we burn.

Good health requires a balanced diet of quality, nutritious, healthy foods and exercise. We'll discuss more in Issue #2
We’ll discuss various ways to burn those calories. My personal favorites are walking, hiking and running. Walking is always a good place to start. It’s simple, it’s cheap and easy to schedule. Just lace up your walking shoes and walk out the door.
