Can You Stay True to Your New Year’s Resolution Diet?

Medioimages/Photodisc/Thinkstock(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — It is the time of the year when many of us kid ourselves. We are talking about first of the year promises regarding dieting and weight.  

Amy Cotta, a Tennessee fitness trainer and author of the book “Six Weeks to Skinny Jeans” says that six weeks of hard work is all it really takes.

Cotta’s regime involves all the familiar ones, like exercizing, eating healthy. But after six weeks of punishing self-denial, she says you can start to go easier on yourself, and modify the things that you hated.

She says if we start now we can fit into those jeans by Valentines day.
