Whenever someone hears a nutritionist talk about poor eating habits the first thing that comes to mind is obesity. And that's perfectly logical because we are a diet-conscious nation and it's virtually impossible to open a newspaper or listen to a news broadcast without hearing that Americans are gaining pounds and inches at an unprecedented rate.
But obesity is more than simply unattractive. It's also unhealthy. So unhealthy that it's literally killing us. A study by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and published in JAMA concludes that obesity kills 112,000 Americans each year. Other studies claim the figure may be even higher. In addition to the alarming death rate, being overweight or obese may be a factor in other chronic health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea and osteoarthritis. In addition, researchers are studying the possible link between being overweight and having an increased risk of developing several types of cancer.
We all know what it takes to combat obesity. Cut back on greasy pizza, sugary cereals, buckets of fried chicken and fast-food burgers with salty French fries; and start eating at least 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Wholesome meals, the kind our parents used to prepare. But unfortunately, between home, work and family obligations, it's almost impossible to make daily trips to the supermarket or to spend hours in the kitchen preparing meals.
If you find yourself and your family faced with a nutritional gap, health experts recommend you supplement your diet with a green superfood. A nutrient-dense superfood will deliver the health-giving properties your body may be lacking.
