CHARLES CITY, Iowa - The New Year always leaves people making resolutions to lose weight, to do just that, health experts are suggesting going on the “non-diet” diet.
Nutritionists recommend instead of doing weight watchers or a low carb diet, just set your own healthy eating guidelines that will help you lose weight. Nutritionists say diets often have timelines and end dates, but a non-diet is a set of ongoing healthy guidelines.
Kris Ward we spoke to says she's tried normal diets without much success.
“I would say in years past I was all about going to lose all this weight and going to do it and by the end of January it was gone,” Ward said.
Ward says for the past year she's just set healthy guidelines for herself and that's working a lot better.
