My lifestyle was killing me and I knew I had to do something about it. I have learned that the best way to develop a healthy lifestyle is to discover the source of problem and then put a plan into action that will develop good health.

Banking calories

What's right way to "cut back" on your food so you can enjoy a guilt free holiday dinner or a special restaurant meal? The experts tell us to that moderate restraint is okay, even encouraged-if it's done wisely.

On the day of a dinner party, don't skip meals or eat so little that you are starved. Instead, make low-fat, high-fiber, carbohydrate-rich choices at breakfast and lunch and have a small snack an hour before the meal if you are hungry.

The week before this special event, cut back substituting jam for butter on your morning toast, using a lemon on your salad instead of an oil-based dressing, or skipping dessert. This way you won't feel deprived or starved.
