Long-term weight-loss solutions
According to fitness expert, nutritionist and CEO of SD Pharmaceuticals, Don Gauvreau: â€œThere are many fad diets out there claiming to give instant results when it comes to weight loss but, ultimately, you need to go back to the basics â€“ a balanced health and fitness regimen. Through healthy eating and regular exercise, people see a difference in how they feel and look. Vancouver is known for being an active city so Iâ€™m surprised that a lot of people are still relying on quick fixes to look good. We should know better and adjust our habits accordingly!â€
