Healthy Lifestyle Changes

If you only had to make one change to have a healthier life, would you do it? If you were to make a change, what change would you be willing to make?

For some the simple addition of a serving of fruit once a day could make a big difference. Does that seem too simple? Well, consider this: If you are now eating less than 7 servings of fruit each week, adding 7 servings of fruit to your week would mean you were getting the fiber, nutrients, and all the goodies the fruit has to offer that you were not getting before.

What if fruit isn't your thing, but maybe you could tolerate another vegetable serving each day. Do it! At any age it is a good idea to add some more healthy items to your menu. It doesn't have to be a big deal. Just one more serving of any vegetable you like every day.

If you are a real pain about food, and can't see yourself eating anything that is good for you, think about juicing what's good for you. I'm not much into juice myself, but I do understand many survive nicely on the liquid form of the foods I would prefer to chew!

One side effect you should be prepared for is this: You may find you begin to lose weight. If you are already thin, your may notice you have more energy! Oh, and you may find your finger nails are healthier, and so is your skin.

Sounds like a good deal to me.
