New Year, New You! 8 Easy Steps to Better Nutrition in 2017

1/4/2017
According to The News Journal, two-thirds of adult Delawareans are classified as either overweight or obese. To start out the new year on a positive note and begin reversing this trend, many may be contemplating weight loss as a New Year’s resolution.
 
While shedding excess pounds is an admirable 2017 goal, beware the pitfall of approaching it incorrectly.
