It’s National Nutrition Month: ACA Offers Tips to Get Healthier
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) encourages you to rejuvenate your health by eating more nutritiously. A few simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can have a positive impact on your health and can also prevent a variety of health problems in the future.
- Pack your lunch to control your fat and sugar intake while adding fruits, vegetables and grains.
- Shy away from restaurants and fast food. Food preparation methods in restaurants often involve high amounts of fat and sugar.
- Exercise at least 20 to 30 minutes a couple times a week.
- Limit alcohol and quit smoking. Drinking alcohol excessively and/or smoking hinders your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from your food.
