I work in a retail environment (supermarket) and am asked on a regular basis to help people lose weight. My clients don't have a lot of time to spend with me, some are regulars, some are not, so I need to be as up to date as possible on obesity and how to help those who want to take control and make changes to lose weight. I believe working in a supermarket puts me in a unique position to help people wanting to make a change. Knowledge is power and I want to help my clients live healthier lives
