The truth is there is more to weight management than just counting calories. Understand the difference between lifestyle and diet and recognize the importance of metabolism and calorie sources.

Healthy eating is more than just a numbers game and together we will take a closer look at how balancing calories in and calories out is oversimplifying the facts.

Learn how restricting calories, eating less fat, and consuming more sugar has caused our nation to be fatter and sicker than ever.
