The obesity rate in North Carolina is approximately 28%. As we understand, obesity is connected to a variety of heart-related ailments. One of the best ways to prevent cardiac conditions and emergencies such as heart attacks and cardiac arrests is to maintain a healthy diet. Here are some tips to clean up your eating habits.
Use a smaller plate when dishing up. You will eat less food!
Avoid grains as much as you can. If you do eat grains, make sure to eat whole grain.
Eat lean protein like chicken, tofu and fish.
Vary your vegetables. A good way to eat a variety of vegetables is to pick veggies of different colors.
Eat a bowl of fruit for dessert.
Avoid pre-packaged and processed food.
Another way to improve your diet is to learn how to buy healthy food. A farmer’s market is a great place to pick up fresh produce and unprocessed meat. When you shop at a farmer’s market, you are also supporting local farmers. Here is a link to help you find a nearby farmers market in North Carolina. http://www.ncfarmfresh.com/
