Why when I start a diet or eating healthy I get sick?

Probably coincidence: But healthy eating is a must in this day and age of fast/packaged/restaurant food and heart attacks. And people are getting heart attacks younger, strokes more often, diabetes more severe. I assure you eating "healthy" should not make you feel sick, unless you are doubling up the change in diet with dieting pills. And there are not any quick weight loss diet pills that don't make people sick. ...Read more

What are some tips for eating healthy throughout the holidays?

What are some tips for eating healthy throughout the holidays?

Be selective: Holidays are for renewal of the spirit and to be with friends and family. The food is not always the healthiest. Be selective. Eat bits and sample rather that piling it on the plate. Do not go to parties on an empty stomach. Eat a bit of food before. Alcohol is high in calories, too. So, be aware.
Enjoy the season and be healthy.
