Public Health Dietician Provides Tips For Healthy Living In 2019

Regional | by Fadi Didi  

Amy MacDonald says feeling better -- not weight loss -- key to better health in new year.

If you're resolving to be healthier in 2019, a Public Health Dietician says to focus on how you feel, rather than the number on the scale.

Amy MacDonald says sticking with a weight loss goal long-term does not guarantee the pounds will stay off.

Optimal weight loss happens at 6-12 months, and MacDonald says most people have gained the weight back within 2 years.

Instead, you should focus on the way your lifestyle makes you feel.

MacDonald says moving more is something most people would benefit from, whether or not weight loss is a result.

She tells us milestones are better achieved by striving to feel healthier, rather than selecting an arbitrary number of pounds to shed.
