HEALTHY LIVING FOR THOSE LESS WILLINGWritten by Jackie Rouse
Continued from page 1
On Thursdays I power walk with Leslie Sansone on her 20 minute “1 Mile - Walk Away Pounds” video tape. I am not sure if any pounds have actually walked away, but I remain hopeful. I have claimed Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as my days of rest and that’s final. Check with me next week or perhaps week after that for my next exercise regiment, I have a sneaking suspicion that motivation may be missing in action once again. While we are in this healthy living mode let’s check out food groups recommended by USDA. “The best way to give our bodies balanced nutrition it needs is by mixing up choices within each food group. (1) Consume a sufficient amount of fruits and vegetable while staying within energy needs. Two cups of fruit and 2 and 1/2 cups of vegetables per day are recommended for a reference 2,000-calorie intake, with higher or lower amounts depending on calorie level. Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables each day. In particular, select from all five vegetable subgroups (dark green, orange, legumes, starchy vegetables and other vegetables) several times a week. (2) Consume 3 or more ounce-equivalents of whole-grain products per day, with rest of recommended grains coming from enriched or whole-grain products. In general, at least half grains should come from whole grains. (3) Consume 3 cups per day of fat-free or low-fat milk or equivalent milk products. And finally choose low-fat or lean meats and poultry, and prepare by baking, broiling or grilling. Vary your choices with more fish, beans, peas, nuts and seeds. “ Armed with this information, healthy living is just a sprint and a turkey burger away. Unfortunately, my plan for healthy eating is now useless. After extensive research I was saddened to learn that KFC and Ben & Jerry’s did not make list of recommended food groups. However, I will begin working on my healthy diet plan very soon but, right now Colonel is calling. Post Script - A reprieve is taken from all nutrients on weekends. There will be no details forthcoming because it could get ugly. Disclaimer – For those persons seriously looking to improve their health please disregard most of what you have just read and employ a legitimate exercise regiment and diet that suits your needs.
I am a new writer and I enjoy writing, somewhat humorously about many issues, most often women's issues. I think we need to take ourselves less seriously sometimes and embrace who we are and where we are now.
