Diet & Nutrition

Eat Smart!

Balanced nutrition is a key factor to feeling great and maintaining a healthy weight. Good nutrition is an integral part of our well-being. Please use the links in this section to learn more about healthy eating (aka – how to get the most out of your calories), smart nutrition technology and tips for shopping, cooking and planning.

Many people frequently eat foods that are high in fats, salt and added sugars. Consuming these in excess contribute to weight gain, high blood pressure and heart disease. Focus on replacing less healthy foods with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein (beans, fish, chicken breast, dairy).

Maintaining a healthy body weight is important because your risk for many diseases is increased if you are overweight. A modest 3-10% weight loss if you are overweight offers many benefits, including:

  1. Decrease insulin resistance
  2. Lower blood pressure
  3. Lower bad cholesterol and triglycerides
  4. Raise good cholesterol
  5. Decrease pain & stress on joints

Eat Smart Tips:

  1. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
  2. Don’t forget about water.
  3. Don’t be “dense” – think about hidden calories in things like condiments, sugary beverages and snack foods.
  4. Be a protein pro – incorporate a source of lean protein into all 3 meals each day.
  5. Be mindful of your portions and sit down to eat a meal.
  6. Think fresh – most of the healthy foods we need are not in a package or box.
