“A bit healthier eating” is probably the goal of many in the new year. “This is a broader, very diffuse and therefore difficult to implement,” says Harald Seitz from the Federal center for nutrition. Who wants to have the good intentions of success, should do better with concrete goals, such as weight loss.

There are moments in which engages you more likely to be unhealthy food. The Breakfast is not managed – and on the way to the Job quickly rolls from the bakery brought in.
