Losing (weight) in NYC

When I first started this blog, a number of posts were about low-sodium diet options – and my own experiences as I tried to lead a healthier lifestyle. Over time, those have become some of the most long-lasting and oft-checked posts on the blog, and today when I looked at Salon.com and found this article, I thought, this is worth posting up.

The writer of that article talks about the sobering effect of seeing the calories posted at a NYC Chipotle had on him, and how it helped him adjust what he was eating to be more realistic. Apparently an average slice of pizza has about 400 calories; he blended this with healthy breakfast and low-sodium dinner choices, and a lot of walking.

Later in his weight loss, the writer steps up his routine, working in trips to the gym, etc. – and he also reflects on how important it is for changes to be life-long, not just for a limited period of time.

But mostly, he got to eat pizza every day and walk all over the city. Can a diet get any better than that?
