We love sweets and deserts just as much as the next guy, but even common sense says that that one’s diet shouldn’t be mostly Snickers and ice cream.
Wanting to be faithful stewards in finances, we dive into a discussion of the cost of unhealthy eating versus the cost of healthy eating.
In This Episode We Look At:
The cost of junk food
How much of our hard-earned income goes to purchasing food with little or no nutritional value?
The personal and national cost of obesity
Poor food choices create many unneeded costs: over-the-counter medications, prescriptions, doctor visit co-pays, and medical treatments.
The personal and national cost of treating diabetes
In addition to out-of-pocket expenses, loss of wages due to diabetes can be devastating. Also consider the personal and emotional price of missing important life events due to illness or premature death.
The savings created by eating responsibly, and practical tips for identifying delicious and nutritious foods
It’s amazing what happens when we start eating highly nutritious foods instead of empty- calorie foods; our energy increases and we do not have the need to eat as much as before.
A practical look at exercise
You don’t have to workout until you puke. For many, a simple daily walk around the block is a great start to increasing metabolism and energy levels.
