With the country and the region still in the grip of coronavirus, quarantining, working from home and sheltering-in-place are all part of the new normal. As such, it’s more important than ever to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. This involves optimal nutrition, developing smart eating habits, exercising regularly, and changing the way we think about eating, choosing and preparing meals, and overall nutrition.
According to nutritionist/dietitian Alexandra Kaplan Corwin, MS, RDN, CDN, CDE, CSP, maintaining healthy weight through smart nutrition and positive changes to lifestyle are essential to achieving optimal health.
