Weight loss resolutions

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay wants to see his patients succeed.

Many people choose a diet that is very difficult to stick with and they burn out. When this happens, the weight then piles back on and sometimes they go above their original weight.

Adopting a new diet is a lifestyle change that should be looked at as something permanent.   Patients should try to find a diet they feel comfortable with doing long-term.

Your physician can help with counseling, but often a consultation with a dietician can be very helpful.
