8 Foods You Should Eat Daily for Optimum Health

8 Foods You Should Eat Daily for Optimum Health | Top Health News | Scoop.it
Our tech nerdie, aka Kelly's husband, is useful beyond words. In addition to keeping us online and in business by keeping up with all of our technical work, he also scans the web for articles that would be of interest to us.

This is one of the articles he sent me last month which I think every Beauty Snob should read! I eat most of the items on the list but am now more diligent about all of it.

I believe in eating only fresh foods (I do not even own a can opener and am planning to rid of my microwave!) and have raised my soon to be three year old son to love spinach and broccoli. With so many of our friends diagnosed with cancer I feel like the least we can do is control what we put in our bodies.

Being youthful and beautiful is just a small perk to the health benefits you'll receive.

The Faster You Eat, The Faster You Gain?

The Faster You Eat, The Faster You Gain? | Top Health News | Scoop.it
Yet another study has found an association between the speed at which we eat and our weight. In this study, published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, researchers found that people who ate the quickest were more likely to be obese than slow eaters.

And the faster people ate, the more their body mass index (BMI, a ratio of weight to height) rose -- 2.8 percent for each "step" increase on the five-step eating-speed scale (equivalent to an extra 4.3 pounds), researchers found.

This is certainly not the first research that linked the way we eat with how much we weigh. A study published earlier this year showed that eating with a bigger fork was associated with eating less food, TIME reported. And a 2008 Japanese study showed that people who eat quickly have a tripled risk of being overweight than people who eat slowly, according to the Daily Mail.

The Twenty Healthiest Foods for Under $1 | Top Health News | Scoop.it
Food prices are climbing, and some might be looking to fast foods and packaged foods for their cheap bites. But low cost doesn’t have to mean low quality. In fact, some of the most inexpensive things you can buy are the best things for you.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, half of the population age 2 and older consumes sugary drinks -- meaning soda, sweetened bottled water, sports and energy drinks and fruit drinks (but not 100-percent juice) -- every day.
