Ask anyone – sisters, friends of friends, bloggers, and neighbors – everyone has their own opinion about nutrition. Some diet plans are restrictive and extreme. Others sound too good to be true (did somebody say a donut diet!?) This can make choosing a smart nutrition plan tricky. Luckily, the experts at Saint Mary’s Fitness Center are here to dispel common food myths and misunderstandings and provide you with a variety of fun, interactive classes so that you can find the right fit for you! Their registered dietitian Elise Compston, RD, LD, will be heading up a series of events all throughout the month of March, which just so happens to also be National Nutrition Month!
