Are You Eating as Healthy as You Think?

Posted on January 27, 2011 by 16 Comments

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.

What’s Your Drink of Choice?

waterA recent study linking sugary drinks like soda pop to an increased risk of gout is just another reason in a long list of why I think what you drink is just as important to your health as what you eat.

And it’s not just soda pop, with its high-fructose corn syrup and long list of artificial chemicals, that’s on my list of beverages to avoid, although it’s certainly at or near the very top. It’s no coincidence that the rising obesity and diabetes rates and the introduction and increase in popularity of soda pop follow a similar path on a graph.
