60 Second Tip - Don’t Let Your Diet Be SAD!

Greetings from Dr. T:

We have all been at home a lot over the past two months, and I hear there has been a lot of eating going on!  Maybe too many sweets, carbs, the wrong kind of fats. Yes, the Standard American Diet (SAD).  It’s time to think healthy!  Here’s some tips for getting back on track.

1. Get moving – walking, running, bicycling - any activity that gets you moving.  Clean the house.  Walk up and down stairs.  Sit less.

2. Eliminate soda. Any kind, including diet soda.

3. Eliminate any foods containing high-fructose corn syrup.

4. Get a Glycemic index chart. It tells you what foods convert into high blood sugar easily. Avoid those foods with a high Glycemic index.

5. Reduce your intake of bread, rice and rice cakes, pasta, sweets, and fruit juice.

6. Eat five full servings of fresh vegetables daily.

7. Increase the good fats - olive oil, avocados, and nuts. 

8. Do not eat anything hydrogenated (foods that have been altered to become more solid, like margarine and shortening). Read labels.
