Get Fit with Cedar is a health and wellness blog with the purpose of providing inspiration, motivation, and the tools needed to help you live your healthiest, happiest life. However, while I am a registered nurse and NASM-certified personal trainer, my scope of practice does not permit me to diagnose, provide treatment plans, or prescribe diets, medications, or supplements. While the information provided is from scientific sources I trust, the posts do not replace the professional advice from a physician, registered dietitian, or psychiatrist. Before starting any exercise regimen or eating plan, you should consult your physician and/or other qualified health professionals.
