You walk, you ride bikes and perhaps you eat rather well, so why aren't you losing weight? It's one of the most commonly asked questions Dr. Diana Bitner, co-founder and physician at True Women's Health, 2144 East Paris Avenue, Grand Rapids, hears.

Doctor Bitner has a wonderful staff consisting of doctors, nurses, nutrition coaches and more that can help women understand metabolism changes, body chemistry and symptoms like sleep, energy and hot flashes. Sometimes in the summer, it's that extra ice cream or adult beverage that can really add up, too!

True offers an app that helps you track food and symptoms and makes you understand things like no carbs after 4pm, why you can't eat all bread and good carbs versus bad carbs.

True Women's Health provides great resources right on Facebook, too.
