Diet and weight are the two most talked about epidemics throughout the United States of America. Human beings need food to live, thus nourishment is the main focus of all humans. The world revolves around food. Days are planned around meals, jobs are made because of food, money is made because of food, and lives are lost due to lack of food.

Quitting a diet in turn reverts the dieter back to the old ways of eating, not paying attention to what is going in their body and they gain all their lost weight back, if not more. Dieting is not a lifestyle, eating is a lifestyle. In order to safely lose weight and be healthy, a lifestyle change needs to be prepared and correctly
