Small changes

80% of all healthcare costs in the US can be cut just by exercise and eating right! Yes, 80%. Heart disease is the NUMBER 1 killer among all adults – it is not gender, race or age specific. This disease can be prevented just by taking an investment in your health.  Living healthy and eating right is not as hard as it sounds. There is no magic pill or “diet” that works. If there were, you wouldn’t be reading this and you wouldn’t be needing any help. There are just conscious lifestyle choices and changes. You don’t have to change everything all at once. Just making small changes in your daily habits and eating choices will result in a healthier you and all those changes will soon add up to a lifestyle change you didn’t even realize! Healthy eating starts with learning new ways to eat, such as adding more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and cutting back on foods that have a lot of fat, salt, and sugar. Healthy eating is not a diet. It means making changes you can live with and enjoy for the rest of your life. Diets are temporary. Because you give up so much when you diet, you may be hungry and think about food all the time. And after you stop dieting, you also may overeat to make up for what you missed. Eating a healthy, balanced variety of foods is far more satisfying. And if you match that with more physical activity, you are more likely to get to a healthy weight-and stay there-than if you diet. Make one small change in your daily habit that you know is slowing you down from achieving your goal. Perhaps it is that drink you know you can do without; perhaps it’s that after dinner dessert that you know you can give up. Perhaps it’s having a breakfast that you typically skip. By achieving small successes in your daily routine, overtime you will get big results
