20 Aug ONLINE FEATURE: The Best 12 Healthy Eating Books of the Year
We can’t control our genetics, but we can control the way we nourish our bodies. Eating a healthy diet – along with exercise — is one of the most important things you can do to reduce your risk of developing chronic health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Research shows that in order to maintain a healthy weight, a healthy diet is very important. After all, you can take in calories much faster than you can burn them off! The U.S. Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion recommends eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein, while limiting sodium, added sugars, and trans fats.
Our busy modern lives don’t always make it easy for us to plan healthy meals. These books provide a guide to different types of healthy diets and plenty of recipes and hacks to keep your eating on track.
