Getting the most from your nutrition

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - The kind of diet you practice has an effect on many aspects of your health. We discuss the benefits of a health diet in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

Dr. Bambi Gladfelter is helping her patients to get the most of their nutrition.

Diets high in carbohydrates and fat leave little nutrition for your body and pack on pounds with empty calories.

Try eating five small meals per day - each consisting of lean protein, fruits or vegetables and a low fat dairy product.

You will find you have more energy, are less hungry and lose weight more easily.
