Time for a Change!
I had a quick break today in between clients and had a chance to read an interesting article.
Here’s the headline – “Health Canada Urges Food Companies To Reduce Trans Fat”
As I read the article it had me thinking why doesn’t Health Canada urge people to reduce their intake of foods that contain Trans-fat instead?
Ultimately it’s up to the individual to make the “healthier” food choice. Everybody has the choice to either go with a food that is wholesome and has a greater nutritional value, than something slapped together with preservatives and trans-fats.
The funny thing is that we help these companies who put garbage into our foods stay in the competition by simply buying their products. Do people not know which brand they should buy? Are the healthy brands too expensive? Do people even care about their health and what they put into their bodies?
From the looks of it North America’s waistline keeps on getting bigger and bigger, and if people don’t reduce the amount of crap that they’re eating then they’ll have to suffer the consequences of having a fatty lifestyle.
It all boils down to making better and healthier food choices. So instead of gobbling down doughnuts, cream filled cookies, and French fries grab a piece of fruit or vegetable instead. It’ll add years to your life and life to your years.
