Healthy Eating … It’s a Challenge

Comments Off on Healthy Eating … It’s a Challenge

Is eating healthy food, consistently, every day on a regular basis a challenge for you?

If you’re like most people, the answer is probably yes! Even the most conscientious healthy eaters may often find themselves in a predicament when it comes to choosing nourishing foods or meals.

There can be many reasons for this …

If you’re just becoming conscious of making healthy food choices you may be confused by the many conflicting opinions as to what’s healthy and what’s not. There are numerous resources that claim to offer you the best choices for your health and well being. But, they don’t all agree.

Who do you believe?

How do you know the truth about what healthy food choices are?

Perhaps you’ve been preparing food the same way for years and now you find out that your preparation methods are not the best and may contribute to ill health. Or maybe you just haven’t taken the time or don’t have the time to learn how to prepare food from scratch.

Where do you start?

Do you eat out frequently, or just on occasion?

How do you know how healthy the foods are at the restaurants you choose? If you eat at fast food restaurants, you probably already know they aren’t the healthiest choices. But what if that’s all you can afford?

And what about taste?

You may have some favorite foods that you love that don’t provide the best nutrition. Maybe you think that healthy food doesn’t taste good. Or perhaps you haven’t tasted any healthy foods that suit your taste buds.

Deciphering the ingredients …

Let’s not forget about the various different products that come in packages – boxes, bags, jars, etc. Have you ever tried reading the ingredients lists to figure out if they really are healthy or not? Or maybe you just gave up because it all seems like Greek to you.

Well, there are answers to all these questions.

There are reliable sources for healthy eating information. Preparing healthy food doesn’t have to be hard. And yes, healthy food does taste good.

It’s no surprise that eating healthfully can be a challenge given the way our food is grown and processed and the advertising messages that are sent to you via all the different media.

So, let’s go sort it all out. Come on over to Healthy Eating Advisor on Facebook and let me know what you want to know.

See you there!

Have You Fallen for the Food Con?

Comments Off on Have You Fallen for the Food Con?

In your quest for eating healthier foods, have you noticed that there’s a lot of contradictory information about what’s healthy and what’s not? There are a lot of food myths, many of them intentional.

What?

Do I mean that there are sources of healthy food info that are purposely lying to you about what is healthy and what is not?

Yes. That is exactly what I mean.

You can see this played out perfectly in the movie, Fed Up. If you haven’t already seen the movie, I highly recommend it.

Fed Up

To rent it from amazon.com for $3.99/$4.99 HD, click here. Your rental is good for a month, i.e. you can start watching it any time in the month after your rent it; but once you start viewing it, you have 48 hours to finish it, i.e. your rental ends 48 hours after you start viewing.

To purchase it on amazon.com for $9.96, click here.

I don’t want to give too much away, but the movie kind of leaves you hanging at the end… wanting for more info… What do I do?  How do I do it? How can I stick with it?

I want to continue the conversation with you where Fed Up left off. What do you want to know? What kind of help/support do you need? How can you succeed at consistently making healthy food choices and loving it?

I am going to do this on my Healthy Eating Advisor Facebook page. Like my page, then you can join in on the conversation.

There is so much misinformation about food in our society and our health has been devastated by it. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity are all lifestyle issues and can be helped and even reversed in many cases with proper diet and lifestyle changes.
