My new favorite app to help with healthy eating is Fooducate.  It is a great way to see if the foods you are buying at the store really "meet the grade" when it comes to healthy eating.  With this app, you can scan the bar code on the foods you want to buy.  The app then gives the food a "grade".  Just like the grades you received in school an "A+" is the best.  So, when I am shopping, I may scan an item to see if it meets the grade.  If it doesn't, the app will suggest other similar items that may have a better rating.

. 1. EATING JUNK FOOD HELPS YOUR STRESS- Your stressed out sitting on your sofa with a big tub of chocolate fudge ice cream. That momment maybe comforting but ccording to a British Journal of Psychiatry found that people who ate highly processed food were 58% more likely to be depressed than those who eat the least. Try a healthlier snack like beef jerky.

 1. TRANS FATS- Trans fats have been strongly linked to chronic inflammation. They are so bad for you that it has been recommended by Institute of Medicine you avoid these at all cost. 2. SUGAR- Do i really need to explain why? Having high levels of both sugar and insulin in your blood is a cause of chronic inflammation throughout the whole body. Bad for you!

 I recently read an article in the IDEA Fitness Journal, January 2013.  The article was titled “Kid’s Fitness Interventions Failing”.   At first this article was quite alarming but when I read beyond the first paragraph, I became aware and eventually became validated about my ongoing theory on health and fitness.
