Health & Longevity through Good Nutrition

We all wish to lead long and healthy lives. Sometimes it is easier said than done. But as hard as it may seem, we all can get on the right track of healthy living. We all know the basics: eat right, exercise, regular checkups, avoid bad habits such as smoking and excessive drinking. One of the most important things to do is to maintain a healthy weight. And the best way to do that is to know your BMI.

If your BMI is between 19 and 25, your weight is in the healthy range. Congratulations! If it is above 25, it's time to take control of your health. And you don't have to loose a lot of weight in order to improve your health. Research has shown that losing 5-10% of your current weight can help prevent or correct weight-related health issues. To better understand what you need to do to get to a normal weight you should understand calories, how they influence your weight, and what you must do to take control of them.

Please take a moment to read some SUGGESTIONS that my daughter wrote on eating. These are first hand experiences from a young person in her own words. After you read these thoughts, go to the BLOG PAGE where you can make your comments and give us your thoughts.
