Dr. John Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H.


2017 is here, and most of us are looking at the New Year as a fresh start, a new beginning that includes thinking about your New Year’s resolution. According to Psychology Today, 50 percent of people make a New Year’s resolution, yet only about 8 percent of people actually achieve their New Year’s goals. After the holiday tradition of over-indulgence, we set out to rid our cabinets of junk food, hit the gym and start fresh. But while most of us start out the New Year with the best of intentions, we often employ the worst of strategies.

On Wednesday, January 25th, Dr. John Agwunobi, Chief Health and Nutrition Officer at Herbalife will be available to discuss how viewers can become a part of the eight percent. He will provide tips on how to make small changes by creating new nutritional habits that lead to a long-term healthy, active, lifestyle. He will also explain why going hard and fast with a fad diet isn’t a sustainable option, what a balanced meal consists of, and the benefits of meal replacements, including protein drinks.

Some of his tips include:

·         Don’t call it a diet, because diets are restrictive. Think of it as a long term solution. Your resolutions are something you’ll need to practice steadily – for days, weeks and months – for lasting results.

·         Make little lifestyle changes- it takes three weeks to make a habit, add fruits and vegetables to every meal, go for a walk, take the stairs instead if elevator, park your car further from the door and walk.

·         The difference between a meal replacement and protein shake.

·         Don’t worry about monumental changes all at once, do little things every day.
