Nutrition 101

I regularly counsel people for diabetes, cholesterol, weight and blood pressure. What are the two main messages I ask clients to remember?
1. Make your plate 1/2 vegetables, 1/4 whole grain, and 1/4 lean protein with a glass of skim or 1% milk at lunch and dinner.
2. Include 30-60 minutes of moderate physical activity daily. You can do this in 10 minute periods but must have your heart rate elevated.
I challange you - take two weeks to try the two tips above. Go for it! What do you have to lose?
