Welcome to Wellness Wednesday! As part of this initiative, each week, some of our health-focused advertisers will be providing tips and advice for leading a healthier lifestyle.

What does it take to lose weight??? Hard work, dedication, motivation, perseverance and 500 calories less per day.

Do not focus on fad diets that advertise low fat, high protein or low carbs. Find the mix based on a calorie level that best fits your body and your needs. Studies prove that the old-fashioned way of diet and exercise is the only real solution to weight loss.

Losing weight is hard work! Pay attention to your body and the food you are putting in it. Just as Rome was not built in a day, weight cannot be lost in a day.
