We all know that diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease are the biggest killers in the U.S., yet the rates of these deadly conditions continue to rise. Why do so many of us continue the negative behaviors that cause these health disasters?It seems as if almost every week on the news we hear about the widespread, yet largely preventable, illnesses that plague America. We all know what we should be doing to live healthier lives and prevent these conditions, yet we continue the very same actions that make us have low energy and be unhealthy.
Pharmacists across the country witness a strange phenomenon every day in which they see customers come to the pharmacy counter to fill their prescriptions for blood pressure and diabetes medications, yet their carts are filled with the very foods that cause these ailments. Customers shopping carts are brimming with beverages and snacks loaded with sugar, sodium, and saturated fat. Taking medications to lengthen their lives seems counter to the damage people are willingly doing to their bodies with little, if any, consideration.
Certainly there are times when we all consume foods and beverages that are bad for us, and as long as we only do it once in a while, that s okay. If we never enjoy a treat once in a while, it s very likely that we won t stay with a healthy eating plan. The determining factor in how harmful it can be to consume salty, sugary, and fattening foods and drinks, however, is the frequency with which we consume them.
When we start to deal with everyday stress after work by devouring a huge bag of potato chips washed down with a large cola, that can quickly become a serious problem. Add to that a habitual lack of physical activity, poor portion control, and excessive amounts of sugar and you have a deadly combination that robs many Americans of both their quality and length of life.To many, it can seem overwhelming to try and make several major lifestyle changes all at the same time to correct the damage caused by poor nutrition and lack of activity. Fortunately, even one small change at a time can help someone to begin heading in the right direction toward good health.
