Each day we are being made more aware of the dangers in our environment, and how they are affecting our health. All of the processed foods, free- radicals, pollutants, and sedentary lifestyles are impacting our nation in a terrible way. We need to make a push towards a healthier life…and it all starts at home.
“We have a physiological drive for high-sugar, high-calorie foods,” says Stephanie Rost, a registered dietician with the new Weight Watchers 360 program. “These are the foods that we’re surrounded by, in an environment where it’s OK to eat wherever and whenever you like.”
We are a product of our environment, so we have to do something to change it. However, this is not only for us, childhood obesity is on the rise each year, with 75% of children ages 5-10 that are overweight having predispositions to heart disease. It is important that we keep our homes clean so that our health, and future generation’s lifestyles, will follow.
