I am excited to be working with the 15 firefighters participating in the 2014 My Heart Challenge, sponsored by the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute. But why should the firefighters be the only ones to benefit with nutrition tips? I'm planning to share a weekly nutrition tip throughout the Challenge, offering you a simple way to make those little changes in how and what you eat that will make a big difference in your heart health.

The 2014 My Heart Challenge launched on Thursday, March 13 at Intermountain Medical Center with 15 firefighters stepping on the scale and beginning their journey to better health. One of those firefighters, David Larsen from South Salt Lake Fire Department, shares why he signed up for the Challenge and what he plans to accomplish in the next three months.
