time troubles

Atlantans have one major obstacle: traffic. It zaps people’s time. Meals and snacks are often on-the-go or skipped. The fast food drive-thru is the first line of defense. It is important to take the time to plan and prepare meals and snacks in advance to stay in control of what you’re eating.

—Sheryl Westerman, motivation counselor and Julie Taube, R.D., L.D. with Sheryl Westerman Nutrition Counseling and Weight Loss Motivation in Atlanta
