Before I let the Vtrim Peeps take over the microphone for the day (I know. I so pun’y!) I wanted to take a moment and remind/let new readers know why I’ve decided to do so. I really like & respect their work.
Vermont was just named the healthiest state in the nation by America’s Health Rankings. So we have some health experts from the University of Vermont’s Vtrim Online Weight Management Program to answer ANY of your nutrition and weight management questions.
This week Heather Leonard and Beth Casey Gold , both Registered Dietitians, directors at the Vtrim Weight Management Program, and health bloggers are here to give insight to questions related to your diet (MizFit note: they mean food plan, People. We are not talking dietdiet here) and weight management!
Please post your question here as a comment to Heather and/or Beth and they will answer them for you in the from of a MizFit guest post.
One lucky commenter will receive a free copy of the Eating Well Diet book, a self-help version of the Vtrim program done in collaboration with Eating Well Magazine.,
