Where I grew up, it was common for individuals in their 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s to move and  to live life as if they were in their late 30’s. To this background, I added multiple certifications in fitness, a culinary arts degree and a Masters in Nutrition. Here are my 5 tips for long-term weight loss success. Read More→
