Healthy eating is an important topic. The food you put into your body fuels you so you can do all your normal activities – working, playing, exercising – with ease. You want to make sure you are getting the optimal nutrition to stay healthy and fit. In this issue, we’ll look at some of the things you can do to assure you’re eating well and avoiding foods that don’t
benefit you. For instance, do you drink a lot of diet soda? Is it really good for you just because it says “diet” or “zero calories” on the can? Read about the hidden risks of diet sodas, as well as “toxic” foods that may do more harm to you than good. Worried about sugar and/or sodium in your diet? You’ll find tips on how to reduce both. And as you’re settling in on a healthful lifestyle, learn how to involve your family so you can share an ongoing journey to good health. All of us at Health & Wellness Magazine are with you on every step of that journey.
