GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. Aside from the loss of life heart disease costs us all over 100 billion dollars annually. Now, let me share with you some good news.
The great news is that this disease is largely preventable AND curable with a change to diet and lifestyle.
For years we have been told that moderation is the key but I am here to tell you that there are some items sold as food that are simply NOT good for you and are in fact BAD for you! A simple change to a low fat plant based diet is the key and the cure. Change your mind and change your life. I would like to ask you what your life and health are worth to you? Instead of calculating this as what you would be “giving up” instead see this as what you would be gaining. The gift of good health and quality of life make every day well worth living.
Factors that put you at risk are –
• Obesity or Overweight
• Poor diet
• Physical inactivity
• Excessive alcohol use
All of these factors are in your control and changeable! Go through your kitchen, start here and rid yourself of what is hurting you and get some foods that will heal you instead. Fresh vegetables, fruits and grains are what your body is craving. Next, get up. Walk around. Inside, outside, move your body.
Give it 30 days and see for yourself. You have nothing to lose by trying and everything to gain.
