We are into a new year, and among many New Year’s resolutions we hear is the resolution to take off body weight. That people are going for a new start, a chance to begin again, is actually good; it brings new hope and vigor to the issue. But sadly, most Americans making this resolution find themselves starting anew at a weight higher than they were the previous new year when they made the same resolution.
