Creating a salad...

Salads can be filling!  Think of 12 things to add to your salad to make it colorful fresh and raw with a protein(garbanzo beans, chopped turkey, or egg etc) and then healthy dressing with balsamic or lemon with healthy oil etc.  Vision a cobb salad and choose a variety that is healthiest for your goals.

This is helpful when grazing at the salad bar!

Only thing is don't be afraid of hard boiled eggs, they are a perfect whole food protein.  If you stick to your 3-5 oz per day lean animal protein limit you will be in good shape. This is NOT why your cholesterol goes up!

Obesity Consequences are Bankrupting the Workplace! Costing 153 billion $$$ annually! OMG!

Are you enjoying life and exploring God's wonderful world in good health?  Are you operating up to your potential? Or are you a liability to America's workforce and healthcare?   Only about 14 percent of full-time U.S. workers are of “normal” weight and have no chronic illnesses.
That means only the healthy and fit are reliable to show up to work and carry the burden of keeping the business in operation while the rest of the folks are ... well... sick with you name it. Chronic self made sickness and disease because they don't follow the rules to stay healthy.

The rules of health are what? 
  • eating 5-9 fresh vegetables and fruit per day=high fiber
  • eat a dark green leafy vegetable daily for cancer prevention=high fiber
  • plenty of whole grain breads,brown rice,beans and whole wheat pasta=high fiber
  • drink water instead of ALL the other harmful junk we 've been drinking
  • 3-5 oz max of animal products daily(prefer chicken, fish over beef or dairy)
  • go outside and walk in fresh air and sunshine at least 20-30 minutes daily
  • enjoy life, love, family and friends
  • Stop Smoking!
  • Stop white sugar, white flour and white rice products!
  • Stop nutri sweet sweetners...use Stevia instead!
  • Stop exceeding 2-3 alcohol drinks per week!
  • Stop using margarine! That clogs arteries worse than BUTTER!
  • Stop avoiding your chance to get up and move off your BUTT!  Park farther away! Use stairs!
  • Stop sticking your head in the sand wondering why me? Why not if your BMI is >30!!
  • Stop living at the drive-thru for your familys food!
  • Stop consuming foods with artificial flavors or food coloring

Pretty simple start really.  Take responsibility for your own obesity and related health problems before they really cripple you and suck up your family's energy to care for you because you were careless and ignorant.

STOPPING those harmful habits is hard and a weaning is a process.  Try cutting in HALF what you have been doing, then cut that in half again and pretty soon you won't crave it much!

So are you obese?  Do you got high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, gallstones, asthma or arthritis YET?    Save yourself now and DON'T get dead! So you can go to work and pay your way instead of expecting Obama and the government to be there to take care of you because, BIG SHOCKER, they won't be there for you when you need it. That's the way this world is headed! Sorry!
