Expert Tips

Foods that work best in healthy weight-loss plans are also often low in cost. Pasta, dried beans, rice, bread and fresh produce are easy on the pocketbook and on the waistline.

When you exercise at home, remember that this is your time. Don't answer the phone or start other household tasks. And ask your family for some quiet time while you exercise. Unless, of course, they decide to join you!.
