Make Health a Habit, Starting With These Tips

By Deanna Embury, Postmedia News; For The Vancouver Province July 19, 2010

"Old habits are hard to break -- but it can be done.

Be realistic with your expectations and make changes a few at a time rather than trying to change everything all at once. Adopt three or four of the following 10 healthy nutrition tips a month.

Healthy eating can become a habit in just 12 weeks.

1. Balance your meals

Eat lean protein, nutrient-rich carbohydrates (whole grains, fruits and vegetables) and non-saturated fats at every meal. The protein helps build and repair muscle; the carbohydrates replenish energy stores without elevating blood sugar; and healthy fats assure your body that there's more fuel coming in, giving it the OK to burn stored fat.

2. Eat breakfast every day

Don't skip breakfast. Not only does it jump start your metabolism, but it also gives you the energy you need to get through the day. Researchers at Harvard University found that those who ate breakfast every day were 44 per cent less likely to be overweight.

3. Drink water

Water will help you to lose weight because it flushes out the waste products your body makes when it breaks down fat for energy or processes protein."

    Americans Are Getting Fat & Reducing their Life Span

    According to a recent study in the International Journal of Obesity, Americans are becoming obese earlier in life thus experiencing a greater duration of obesity over their lifetime. This trend may accelerate the prevalence of type 2 diabetes across the
    U.S. population.

    The information was gathered from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) from 1971-2006 or over the course of 35 years. The study concluded that “Increasing cumulative exposure to excess weight over the lifetime of recent birth cohorts will likely have profound implications for future rates of type 2 diabetes and mortality in the U.S.”

    Eating slowly is better for you

    According to a New York Times article on, eating food at a slower pace causes people to feel full sooner and consume less calories.
    The report stems from 2 distinct studies which stated that eating slower releases more hormones and was responsible for making people feel satiated faster which leads to eating less.
    In a 2008 study published in The Journal of the American Dietetic Association, subjects felt full quicker and consumed 10 percent less calories.
    Conversely in another study by The British Medical Journal, people who ate quickly until they felt full, had triple the risk of being overweight.
    In addition to eating slowly, we recommend using Caricoʼs waterless and greaseless cookware, Ultra-Tech II. Itʼs easy to use, easy to clean and seals in all the vitamins, nutrients and flavor.
