Health, The Forgotten Friend

By Raquel Hunter

How many times have you heard someone say, "If I could do it all over again, I'd take better care of my health"? Or have you heard people say, "If I get rid of this disease, I'll eat right and exercise more frequently"? Unfortunately, most people don't receive that second chance.

Most people do not appreciate the importance of their health until it is failing. Cookies, candy, chips, ice cream, french fries, alcohol we run to them for comfort and solace. We think these foods make us feel better, but that is an illusion. These foods, and many others like them, are slowly killing us. Every time you "indulge" in a pint of ice cream or an order of super-size fries, you are putting your health at risk. So, does this mean stop eating french fries and ice cream? Maybe. Would you live longer if you stopped eating cookies, candy, chips, ice cream, French fries? Probably. If you lower your intake of the foods that rapidly increase your blood sugar, kill your brain cells, increase your cholesterol level and blood pressure, you will probably have a healthier and longer life.

So how do you lower your intake of these foods when they are frequently on sale in bright seductive packaging at the grocery store and readily available on almost every street corner? Here are a few suggestions:

* Stash healthy snacks in your car so you won't be tempted to order fast food on your way home from work.

* Exercise. It will give you a natural energy boost and deter you from eating more calories that you can burn off.

* Drink more water. The more water you drink, the less hungry you will feel.

* Don't stop eating these foods 'cold turkey'. Gradually reduce your intake. If you currently eat french fries five times a week, start by reducing to four times a week. Try this for a couple of weeks and then reduce your intake to three times a week.

* Set a specific goal. Goals will let you see your progress and can be a source of inspiration.

Be strong when you crave food that is not good for you. You will thank yourself later. Remember, health is important. Take care of your health while you still have the chance.
