Celebrate Valentine’s Day the Healthy Way


Single or coupled, Valentine’s Day is impossible to ignore. The Valentine’s Days of our past were simpler—filled with homemade valentines for family members, cartoon cards for friends and (portion-controlled) sweets from our first loves, mom and dad.

Now it’s a commercialized holiday that tells us we need to dine out, buy gifts and indulge in treats.

But, you don’t need to swear off the celebrating because you’re following a weight-loss plan. Here are our top tips for having fun and making the most of this holiday while staying true to your healthy lifestyle.
