How do you spend your 24?


Most people start an exercise program to lose weight. Prioritizing exercise is an important choice an individual can make. When people don't see the scale move or they hit a plateau, many end up returning to their old habits. What's missing is proper nutrition that goes along with exercise. Healthy eating is an important element in weight loss. Plus it adds the much needed energy for people to remain active. When there is a push to do more physical activity without the push for healthy dietary choices, people become unbalanced. Making healthy food choices along with exercise sets people up for success rather than failure.
