As I walked past a magazine stand the other day, I couldn’t help but notice the barrage of sensational nutrition-focused headlines that promised weight-loss success. Doesn’t it also seem that everyone – from your news anchor to your hair dresser – has an opinion about how to lose 10 pounds in 10 days, without giving up your favorite foods? Get real.
Just because someone swears by the latest fad or TV testimonial doesn’t mean such a plan is scientifically sound – or even safe – for you. Following the lead of someone who may not be a credible expert could leave you with a quick weight loss and even faster weight gain after.
