H-E-A-L-T-H-I-E-R May Not Be Healthy
Everyone is looking for ways to improve their health. It is important to learn as much as you can about something before taking it for granted that it is healthier for you. A good example of this is artificial sweeteners. Cutting back on sugar is necessary for people who are overweight or who have health issues like diabetes. While reducing the amount of sugar consumed is necessary, the alternatives can be unhealthy if abused. Studies are showing that many artificial sweeteners actually can cause you to be hungry sooner and put on more belly fat than if you had just eaten a food that contained sugar. So, HEALTHIER is natural sugars from fresh fruits like watermelon.
Another case in which healthier may not be better is when it comes to the words "light" and "lite". Manufacturers of certain foods can use the word "light" and make small changes in the amount of coloring that is used. Although they would have the public believe they have reduced the amount of fats and calories the product contains, in actuality, the food may contain more than normal. It is important to always read labels no matter how it is described. You might be surprised at what you find. Read each FDA label carefully and ask an expert if you see ingredients you don't understand.
When it comes to diet, it's important to understand that not all diets work for everyone. You need to understand how your body works and how many calories you, as an individual needs to function efficiently. Always work with a dietician or weight loss specialist so that you know that you are getting adequate amounts of nutrition and that you are exercising at a level that is healthy for you. If you are overweight or have specific health concerns, certain diets and exercises may not be right for you.
