Weekly Gems from Ronda Gates.
When I first entered the corporate health promotion business, one of the leading edge companies providing exemplary programming for their employees was Pepsico. Recently the company published results of a survey they sponsored that asked women how they were approaching New Year's Resolutions. It showed they were "striving for better balance" in their diet and fitness routine. This is in concert what marketing analysts are also discovering-that interest in the low carb phenomenon is waning (sales are down 32 percent) and fad diets are being ignored in favor of choices that focus on healthy lifestyle.
Personally, I don't need a survey to know this welcomed shift is occurring. The questions consumers ask me affirm their interest in choosing healthy habits and making their resolutions for better health a reality. They tell me they are confused by overwhelming nutrition labels. "Just tell me what to do and what to buy."
If you have spent any time with me you know that's not my style. Although I can offer suggestions, I prefer to provide accurate information that allows you to make choices in keeping with your lifestyle, your food preferences, and the exercise strategies you enjoy. The guidelines you'll read below are not new. They are tweaked in that I have taken advantage of the expert advice I acquired as I revamped my weight management strategy in 2004 for a residential weight management program. Here's a review of those ten guidelines. Know that the more you adopt, the more successful you will be.
May your 2005 be filled with balance.
