I’m not a doctor, nutritionist or health professional. The information presented on this blog is either based on personal experience or publicly available health and fitness information from reputable sources.

I wholeheartedly advise you to speak with your doctor before embarking on any fitness or weight loss program. In fact, even if you never do anything more strenuous than watching Dancing With the Stars from the comfort of your couch, you should still visit your doctor at least once a year to assess your overall health and be aware of your blood pressure, cholesterol level and glucose tolerance. It’s just a smart thing to do.
