There’s no better time to curb unhealthy eating habits than "National Nutrition Month" which is observed each year in the month of March. Sponsored by the "Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics", the 2015 annual campaign aims to generate awareness on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
With American obesity reaching record numbers in recent years, this campaign is a strong platform to encourage people to lead a healthy lifestyle. The theme for 2015 campaign is "Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle". The theme encourages people to adopt eating patterns and physical activity plans that are focused on consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices and getting daily physical exercises in order to achieve a healthy body weight, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and promote overall health.
The annual eat-right campaign is a perfect time for people to stop and take a moment to reflect on what exactly they are eating. Choosing dietary plans that meets nutrition and hydration needs is vital to enhancing quality of life.
The event is a strong platform to make people understand the benefits of eating right. People need to stick to a diet with a correct balance of lean proteins, carbohydrates and fats. They should increase intake of fruits and vegetables and water consumption. A balanced diet lowers the potential risk of chronic diseases such as blood pressure, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, cholesterol, and can even prevent some types of cancer.
The annual campaign focuses on bringing significant changes to lifestyle by building a positive body image and establishing a healthy relationship with food. A low calorie diet along with rigorous physical activity can help in better weight management. Always remember that a healthy body weight can be attained through healthy eating and not through restrictive eating. Multi-specialty healthcare centers offer effective weight loss and health and nutrition programs that help people achieve a healthy weight by following a healthy diet, burning extra calories and lowering food cravings.
