Have you been putting off trying to eat healthily because it's too expensive, too difficult, or you just can not seem to make time to prepare a healthy meal? You are not alone. Millions of consumers just like you maintain an unhealthy diet for these reasons, but it's time to stop gambling with your health.
Research continuously shows that your diet can affect how you feel, how you think, how you view yourself, and can directly affect your health:
• Top nutritionists at Harvard have concluded that trans fat could be responsible for as many as 30,000 premature coronary deaths per year!
• By eating at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruits a day, you can reduce your risk of stroke and heart disease by 30%, lose weight, and enhance your immune system so you do not get sick as often!
• More than one-third of US adults-more than 72 million people-and 16% of US children are obese
With so many negative effects caused by an unhealthy diet, you can not afford to risk your health and happiness by not eating healthily.
Unhealthy food products are promoted by food groups and restaurant chains because they can be advertised to the consumer as fast, easy, and cost-effective meals. Most consumers choose these products because they think that healthy eating can not be fast, easy, or cost-effective. This assumption, however, is not necessarily true. Healthy eating can be fast, easy, and affordable, and can contribute to a healthy body, healthy mind, and a happier you!
