3 Ways to Help Reduce Your Chances of Disease & Premature Death!

We're living longer, but not necessarily better. Although life expectancy has increased, the number of years we spend in sickness also has. We can cut our risk of premature death from disease by:

  • Eat Healthy – Eating healthy means eating the right amount of calories and the right type of foods. Opt for half your plate filled with fruit and vegetables, the more colors the better; quarter plate of complex grains; quarter plate of lean protein (and omega 3 fatty acids are good, too).
  • Exercise – Exercise at least 150 minutes a week.
  • Don't Smoke – Stop smoking and enjoy life!

Let’s get healthy!
