This year is quickly coming to a close. As a holistic nutritionist I’m often asked: “What is the secret to lasting weight loss?” That’s a heavy question, no pun intended. Here are 10 things I’ve learned in the 20+ years I’ve been helping older women who want to lose weight:
Like most Americans over the age of 60, a compact magazine called the Reader’s Digest arrived every week when I was growing up. Although it is still in existence, I haven’t read it for many years. Have you?

Who among us hasn’t reached for a fatty bowl of ice cream or a double chocolate brownie when feeling down? We all know how good either of these can make us feel…
I think we would all agree that eating well is key to health and a healthy weight. But getting to the eating well part isn’t just about the food. If it were, we would have far fewer overweight people today.
