Are you there America?

…its me, Andrea…

Studies have shown that the combination of a healthy diet, not smoking, regular physical activity, and controlling one’s weight reduces your risk of developing ANY chronic disease by 80 percent.

80 percent.

Do you know of any pill that can make that claim? There is none and there never will be one. Our health is always our own responsibility. So why are only one and one-half percent of Americans getting enough fruits and vegetables everyday? The statistic means that 98.5% of us are not getting enough.

Advice I Give Myself: Start today, eat one more carrot, replace even one fry with a  string bean, or go big and add a side salad to whatever you are eating. Small steps will lead to huge results.
