Posted on January 13th, 2010 by Kelley Luckstein

If you've made a vow to lose those extra pounds this year, here are some fresh approaches. A few food swaps, a bit more movement, and some easy behavioral changes can make a big difference.

 

1. Don't Sit Still Make a conscious effort to move more on a daily basis, whether it is cleaning the house or taking the stairs.
