Candice Trudel Talks Nutrition

I think that if you want to reduce your weight, there’s no magical solution, no one thing, that’s going to do it for you.  There has to be a comprehensive lifestyle shift that addresses the multiple variables that come together to affect how we eat, exercise, and behave in other ways that affect our weight.  […]
