Are You Eating as Healthy as You Think?

healthy eatingA recent study by Consumer Reports National Research Center asked people if they had a healthy diet???and produced some interesting results.

Perhaps the most striking was that of the 1,234 people surveyed, a full 90 percent said they felt they ate a healthy diet. However, when questioned about what exactly their dietary habits were (if they ate breakfast and, if so, what they ate, how many fruits and vegetables they ate a day, etc), it turned out that most were, in fact, not eating a very healthy or balanced diet.

Diabetes: Don’t Become a Statistic!

Posted on November 11, 2010 by 2 Comments

diabetesA report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a grim prediction for America’s future. It says that by the year 2050, 1 in 3 adults will have type 2 diabetes — two to three times more than today’s already increasing rates.

I find the news truly alarming, if not surprising, considering the nation’s obesity rates and lifestyle habits, and I hope that we will collectively take action to prevent this prediction from coming to pass.
