Get in Better Shape

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Before you resolve to lose weight, consider whether your current weight is a healthy and reasonable one for you. The number on the scale can be deceiving; by using the tools listed below, you can use some basic calculations to determine whether you should try to lose or gain weight, or simply make some improvements in the quality of your diet.
  • To be sure that you are choosing a sound diet, look for the Registered Dietitian (RD) credential behind the name of the creator of your site or, at the very least, the designer or supervisor of your diet plan. Some MDs have nutrition training and experience, but do not assume that all MDs are qualified to provide nutrition information and advice. Look for background and credentials on your site and verify them using other sources.
  • Do not start an intense exercise routine or make a drastic change in diet without first consulting your physician. Use the tips on these Web sites merely as suggestions or loose guidelines; each person has specific health considerations that Web sites can’t take into consideration.
