These infographics are becoming incredibly popular and are very effective.
At the moment, we as a family & in our community are not THAT effected by these statistics, however, obesity surrounds us. Our school has a “farm to table” program, we pack fruits and veggies for lunches, I offer cooking classes, and there are no soft drinks in our house or at school.
I, however, am not immune to the treats that are all around my kids (namely the super sugary chocolate milks that my youngest wants to drink
daily) or how much sugar they get to consume if I even turn my back.
Or how many Red Bulls, Monster Drinks, etc are consumed by the teachers on my campus daily.
Or, how can I influence my overweight friends to change their habits?! I think they look at me and think they’ll never be able to do that.
Friends, it’s a decision YOU MAKE to change your life.
Start with CLEAN, HEALTHY FOOD.
CUT OUT SUGAR, DAIRY, & GRAINS
Take a walk daily.
Seek out the healthy, happy people and pick their brains on how and what they eat.
Comments, suggestions?! Let’s hear it.
