4.) Consumer Reports Magazine Evaluates Diets

How do you answer clients who ask, "What is the best diet?" Of course, the short answer is that a balanced, low fat diet combined with moderate exercise is the ideal way to lose weight. But there is no denying the allure of the numerous weight loss programs touted in the media today. Many worksites offer one or more of the more popular weight loss programs. And wellness managers owe it to their clients to be knowledgeable enough about these programs to give an objective critique.
