This time of year, you might have weight loss on the brain. To prove it is not out of reach, organizations across the country are recognizing Healthy Weight Week.

During an interview on Good Day Lubbock, Christie Hust, director of the Diabetes Education Center at the Larry Combest Health and Wellness Center, explained the purpose. She said what everyone should understand is that extra weight on the body means added risk for serious chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer.

Rather than fad diets, Christie recommends slow lifestyle changes such as eating smaller portions, enjoying fatty foods in moderation, and taking walks after dinner each night.
