Soda and Coronary Heart Disease

15 Mar

A recent study reported by Dr. Lawrence de Koning from the Children’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts, states that sugary drinks are associated with an increased risk for coronary heart disease (CHD).

Even just one can of soda per day is associated with a 20% increased risk. Diet drinks were not associated with CHD but have been found to be linked to weight gain and metabolic diseases.

Just yesterday, I read an ad on a bus that I found very interesting, it was by Choose Health LA and it says:

“You wouldn’t eat 22 packets of sugar. Why are you drinking them?”

Remember… Eat healthy, be happy!

Did you know?… About Dieting

23 Feb

Did you know that studies have shown that portion controlled diets don’t work.

Out of 100 people observed, during a 5 year period, only 3 of them maintained the weight lost.

Drastic diets can lead to weight gain in the long term.

The best option is to learn how to eat healthy. Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet and reducing processed foods and saturated fats, can lead to weight loss and prevent disease.
