Did you overindulge during the holidays?  A few too many cookies and too many drinks?  It happens to a lot of us every year, just in time for lofty New Years resolutions to eat better and exercise more. But what health goals should we be setting this year and how can we be sure to keep them?  This hour, the latest science on health, diet and fitness including why nuts are the perfect snack food and whether exercise trackers are effective.  Marty talks with STELLA VOLPE, Professor and Chair of the Department of Nutrition Sciences at Drexel University, RICHARD MATTES, Professor of Nutrition Science at Purdue University and NATE MECKES, Assistant Professor of Applied Exercise Science at Azusa Pacific University.
