“Every meal or snack is an opportunity ...”
When it comes to helping Healthy Life Program members manage their weight-loss challenges, Dylan likes the micro approach. Just take things bite-by-bite.
“Every meal or snack is an opportunity to move closer to your goal,” he says. Suddenly, an attack of the midafternoon munchies is not a minefield. It’s a chance to indulge in a healthy snack. And a lapse at dinner one night just means that breakfast is the perfect time to get back on track.
A registered dietitian and exercise specialist, Dylan identifies with people looking for a healthier life. “Just like many others, I, too, have struggled with emotional eating. Our unhealthy food environment dulls our taste buds and creates addiction to sugary and fatty foods. Nevertheless, there is nothing better than the peace of mind and quality of life you get through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”
