Healthy eating is definitely important to achieving an optimum body weight but it is not the only key. From my experience is accounts for about 80% of your results. The other 20% comes from the activity level in your life. Here are some things I have learned about creating a healthy lifestyle.
One of the questions I get asked most is how did I lose all the weight? It seems that there is so much information out there and so many new diets to lose weight that the simple message of weight loss gets lost in the mountain of information.

I can’t believe April is already over. Where did my month go? I’m sitting down to finally write out this article that has been in the works all month. It seems that I have so much to say yet so little thought out. I debated if I would even write this article or pick something else more fluffy and light hearted.
