One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is weight loss.  And although there are a myriad of diets out there, one of the most common misconceptions is that you have to banish carbs to get the body of your dreams. This simply is not true.  Carbohydrates, or carbs as they are commonly referred to, are very much a necessary macronutrient that our body and brain need in order to function properly.  As a matter of fact, go too low in your carbs, and your lean muscle will suffer.

Too many men and women over 50 believe it’s too late to get in shape.  They mistakenly believe they have to accept the fact that since they are older they will never weigh what they did in college, or they won’t be able to get rid of the belly fat or widening hips that seem to come with middle-age (not to mention the stiffness, lack of balance and flexibility).

The first place to start is “Serving Size.”  I know many of us have heard about using your fist or your palm and that is all well and good when it comes to meat.  The serving size I want to discuss involves packaged food, any kind of packaged food.  Let us start with breakfast.  This is an easy one and it makes my point very clear.  The serving size is on the nutrition label.  And note that changes are forthcoming on these labels.
