Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy the weather! Unfortunately for many of us, shedding the winter weight continues to be a challenge.
Not surprisingly according to a recent health study, the number of fast food establishments in North America has increased significantly over the years. Equally alarming is the fact that the average serving size for burgers, fries and sodas have tripled since the 1970’s.
With fast food chains and obesity rates on the rise, us nutrition and diet specialists are eager to offer helpful basic tips for Cleaning our plates, including:
- Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables
- Eating more whole grains
- Cutting sodium
- Controlling portion sizes - you know the hand rule!
Aside from following The Eat-Clean Diet, let’s not forget the other important aspect of healthy living: physical activity! Performing two to three hours of moderate activity each week can help shed pounds and maintain a healthy fitness level.
Many of us fitness gurus will extol the virtues of running, but even brisk walking will keep you in shape. In fact, for many beginner exercisers taking a walk is the best way to start - even if it's just down the driveway. I like SKECHERS GOWalk for daily walks or errands around town because they are radically lightweight and flexible while promoting a natural stride for a more efficient and responsive walk. I think they might be my go-to shoe for the season.
Here’s to a healthy summer!
