TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The start of a new year means new goals, and for some that means putting down the sugar and picking up those vegetables.

But losing weight the right way is a process.

A local dietitian says fast acting weight loss programs don't work for everyone and healthy weight loss takes time.

When people don't see instant results it makes it harder to stick to their goal.

"What we do see a lot of people do is they kind of are looking for that next quick fix. So people kind of end up buying into the weight loss and supplement industry to help them with this which is really just a lot of money getting pulled away from their wallet that they can be used to putting towards the basics of getting back to health and wellness," said Annie Justmann, a Dietitian at Premier Health and Fitness.

Justmann says setting realistic goals and finding someone to hold you accountable is the best way to stay on track.

In addition to that, she says you shouldn't neglect your greens and heart healthy fats.
