A Simple Prescription for Good Health

Want the bottom-line prescription for good health?  Cut down on all food products made with any kind of flour and sugar.

According to best-selling author Andrew Weil, M.D. and founder/director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, sugar and processed carbohydrates are the primary culprits in the obesity epidemic. This is just one of the premises explored in his new book, Why Our Health Matters.

Weil emphasizes the importance of focusing on what you eat as much as how much you eat.  Health comes from eating the right amount of good foods and including exercise in your routine.Grocery Cart

With added sugars and refined carbohydrates jam-packed into every product, what can we do? When shopping, try to fill your cart with vegetables and lean meats.  Stick to the outside aisles of the grocery store, because that is where you will find the unprocessed foods.

You can take responsibility for your health by making smarter choices for you and your family.  Every decision, even something as simple as quenching your thirst with water instead of sugary soda, is a step toward a healthier you.
