All women may be created equal, but not so true for our metabolisms. Some of us can eat whatever we want. Some of us gain weight just by feeding our fish. And these days you’d be hard pressed to pick up a women’s magazine that doesn’t have an article titled, “30 Days to a Slimmer You!”
But slimmer doesn’t always mean healthier. At the base of it all, our bodies need fuel and vitamins to get us through our day. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor about what you should be eating and why. Take the TestWell Wellness Inventory to see where your nutrition ranks. And don’t forget the trusty old food pyramid, now updated for the 21st century (www.mypyramid.gov). Learn how to do it right. Then get your eat on.
