Good points here.  

 

From the article:

 

Time to Build Some Healthy Eating Habits


Although the initial stages are difficult, the resistance from succumbing to temptation, the odd increasingly frequent occurrence of birthdays, office fun days and family BBQs; it is important to build a strong foundation. It’s vital that you instill the correct mindset; remember each ‘cheat’ meal, each time you give into temptation, your goal is pushed further and further out of reach.

Larry 's curator insight, March 26, 2013 10:40 AM

My thoughts are that, it is really hard for me to change my diet and eat healthy, because i have never ate vegetables and for some reason i just cant take the taste of them. But i understand what the article is trying to say you just have to actually want to eat vegetables and once you put your mind to it your going to do it

In comparison, the main soda cola companies have almost certainly spent even more on successful campaigns aimed at young people and fast food addicts to get them to drink more soda.

There are so many benefits that come from drinking more water, from bodybuidling to staying fit and having a healthy lifestyle.  Of course, we need to stay away from soda!  

 

Here are a couple of snippets from this informational article found at Helen's Little Health Corner:

 

By replacing the majority of your soda and juice drinks with water, you will naturally lose weight even if you don’t change your exercise patterns. Unfortunately, changing your soda drinks to the light or diet version may not help you lose weight because while you are not taking in the excess sugar, the sweeteners used in these drinks often help you maintain water in your body, but in the wrong places.

 

The majority of sodas are even worse for you. Many of them contain twice as much sugar as the juice drinks, meaning that you are probably going to gain weight if you drink fruit juices and sugar filled soda drinks, rather than drinking water when you are thirsty. If you drink sugar-based drinks every day of the week, then you’re going to be carrying an excessive of weight that is difficult to lose.

 

Great work Helen Gray @ScabiesWeb

Water is an essential component in overall health that many underestimate while promoting many benefits such as lubricated joints and spinal cord protection.

Pecans contain different forms of the antioxidant vitamin E–known as tocopherols, plus numerous phenolic substances, many of them with antioxidant abilities. The nuts are especially rich in one form of vitamin E called gamma-tocopherols.

While Sakamoto said her diet had always been pretty good, one habit she had was to eat one or two bowls of cereal before going to bed. Such late-night dietary mistake sent Sakamoto to sleep with elevated insulin levels, interfering with what otherwise may have been peak levels of the natural release of human growth hormone from the pituitary gland.

Very few people, if they’re honest, enjoy going to work every day in an environment filled with distrust, political maneuvering, and so many of the other ugly things that characterize too many groups and organizations. And most folks, if you ask them, would say they wish things were different where they work. In fact, a recent Gallup poll suggests that up to 77% of individuals said they were miserable in their jobs.

On the other hand, servant-leaders place enormous value on people and their inherent humanity. They seek to foster collaboration, understanding, mutual respect (crazy, I know), and wholeness, both within themselves and others.
