FACE IT… FAD DIETS DON’T  WORK… LIFESTYLE CHANGES DO – Most of us look outside ourselves for that quick fix to shed 10 or 20 pounds with a fad diet. When this goal is reached we receive raving compliments from a partner, a family member or a good friend and we give ourselves a slap on the back for a job well done. We’ve worked so hard and we truly believe that this time the weight is off forever. But unfortunately as time moves on so do old habits and behaviors. No sooner than later that day comes in the not so distant future when we look in the mirror, try on those new jeans we rewarded ourselves with and the zipper barely budges!      Yes, we’ve gained it all back with a bit more and we don’t’ understand how or why! Does this scenario sound familiar?
