HIGH RISK OF LYME DISEASE & CO INFECTIONS

Most people aren’t thinking of ticks and Lyme disease this early in the spring, especially with the snow melting just weeks ago, but because of the life cycle of ticks, transmission of Lyme disease is actually highest in the months of April and October. In April, transmission is possible by the tiny and sometimes translucent nymph form of ticks that are much harder to see and even smaller than the adult deer tick (which is smaller than the period at the end of this sentence).

Lastly, dieting often results in a loss of muscle which decreases your metabolism and your body’s ability to effectively burn fat so when the regular diet is resumed the same amount of food previously eaten results in more fat production. The bottom line is that dieting is not part of a healthy lifestyle! However, numerous people live a lifestyle of yo-yo dieting that often leaves them frustrated and feeling like a failure.
