Monday

Monday Campaign

Monday is the day most people are likely to start anew and get healthy. People view Monday as a day for a fresh start and are more likely to start diets and exercise regimes, quit smoking and schedule doctor’s appointments on Monday than any other day.
And a Monday start helps them carry out their healthy intentions for the week.
For more information on the Monday Campaign go to:

Why Eat Healthy?        

 It protects your health. A steady diet of junk food — or even just an imbalanced daily diet — can clog your system and zap your energy. But regular, nutritious eating helps prevent and treat many different health problems, such as: – High blood pressure – Diabetes – Heart disease – Bone disease – Some cancers – Obesity            

It helps you maintain your weight — or lose weight, if you need to. Eating healthy can prevent you from slowly putting on pounds — and having to fight to lose them.  It makes you feel better. If you make wise food choices throughout the day, you’ll: – Sleep better – Have more energy – Improve your mood .

What does healthy eating look like?                                                                                                           Choose foods wisely. Choose more foods with nutrients and fiber, and fewer foods with added fat, sugar, and salt. This means making smart choices as you buy, and prepare your food.

 Enjoy what you eat — just eat less of it. You can’t manage your weight without giving some thought to the amount of food and calories you’re eating.

Eat mindfully. Eating mindfully means paying attention to what you eat, when you eat, and why you eat. It can also mean you enjoy your food more.
