Our concept of a "diet" is a change in lifestyle: Learning to eat well and exercise in a healthy way that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. The concept is not unique. It is one you will likely hear about from a health professional. Our purpose is not to help you with your next diet, but to help you put an end to the dieting cycle. Temporary weight loss is of little benefit.
This tutorial is designed to provide you with a foundation of knowledge to help you begin your lifestyle changes. You can also sign up for our free weekly newsletter, and post questions and share with others in our free diet and weight loss forums.
Eating poorly and being overweight increases your risk of diabetes, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, Alzheimer's, cancer and many other maladies.

Learning to eat well and exercise is the only solution to long-term weight loss.
Please read that last sentence again. It's the most important point we have to make. In fact, it's the whole point of our tutorial and website.
Now please take a couple of minutes to read our next topic on the subject of Eating Disorders. What you learn may someday help you, or enable you to help someone you care about.
