SEGMENT: Weight loss after the holidays

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Thanksgiving is over and we're all watching our waist lines this holiday season. Are you aware of all the weight loss programs coming up after the holidays?

Dayton Preston, Wellness Program Manager at Columbus Regional Health, discussed the good and bad side of commercialized weight loss programs and products.

After the holidays people feel guilty from eating holiday foods, but with diet programs it is important to still maintain a healthy balance, including carbs, fats and proteins.

When exercising you should start slowly and work within your abilities.

Before you start any weight loss program make sure you talk to your doctor before dieting.
