Eating and Living Well: Easy Does It

As a person who has determined that much of the diseases that plague us are preventable, eating seems to be a great....

...place to start.  My friends who are in clinical research fields and are nutritionists and healthy living consultants tell me that if people become better educated and motivated to make easy changes, then big results happen over a period of time.

Every person on earth can and should exercise properly, and most people are able to do a variety of exercise routines if they just had the proper technique, see the rewards and have some sort of support network (and trainer, a team of colleagues at work, neighbors and friends, family...or just a good dog).  Many people simply don't take the time (45 mintues per day, maximum) or set aside a set of routines to do exercise.

But everyone eats!  There are no exceptions here....

So, with the advent of the internet and with the dramatic expansion in food options and grocery shopping alternatives, simply eating better can make a huge difference.  It doesn't have to start with an enormous change or a dramatic reduction in calorie intake and food choices.  It can be as simple as choosing healthy options for what sometimes can be unhealthy foods-like sandwiches.  Check out my photo of a salmon sandwich-instead of salami, cheese or fried chicken, why not substitute a nice piece of salmon?
