Healthy Food Selections

It’s all about portion control and selecting the right foods!

  • Women today are eating 22 percent more calories than they were 30 years ago - 335 more calories each and every day.
  • Fast food take-outs and family restaurants were found by researchers at New York University to have 195 percent to 700 percent larger portions than what is recommended by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture).

Researchers found the biggest increase in:

  • Steak - 224% larger
  • Muffins - 333 % larger
  • Pasta - 480% larger
  • Cookies – 700% larger

Multiple Choice Food Selections

Olive Oil or Fat Free Salad Dressing? Olive Oil! A recent Harvard Study found that women using oil-based dressing’s five or more times a week had a 50 percent lower risk of fatal hearth attacks than women who rarely use them.

Nutra Sweet or Sugar? Nutra Sweet! One can of regular soda has about ten teaspoons of sugar, which contributes enormously to weight gain and dental cavities!

Butter or Margarine? Neither! Put almond butter or peanut butter on your toast and use olive oil for cooking!

Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate? Dark! A study in the Journal of American Medical Association reports that antioxidants called flavonoids in dark chocolate dilate arteries, increasing the amount of blood able to flow through them and contributing to lower blood pressure.

The worst of the worst – Cheese Fries with Ranch dressing! The average restaurant serving contains 3000 calories and 91 grams of saturated and trans fats – YIKES!

The best ice cream selection - EDY's Grand Light!
