medical weight lossTIME. We all need more of this precious commodity! Unfortunately we all fill our schedules up with meetings, errands, appointments, games, etc. to the point where our own health can be put on the back burner. A large percentage of the population does not place nutrition as a priority and will resort to fast food fixes when in a time crunch. Consuming too much fast food can lead to nutritional deficiencies, too many calories consumed and after a while, obesity.
