2019: Let's Do This!
The new year often means the beginning of new commitments to leading a healthier life. What exactly does that mean? Where is a good place to start?
Tired of dieting that never works? Tired of beating yourself up over lack of progress, or taking one step forward, then two steps back. We've all been there. Calories. Fat grams. Carbs.
What if our focus shifts instead, to small every day choices, following the wise words of food guru Michael Pollan: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
To jumpstart your health journey,
let’s get it started with a movie to inspire you!
Choices presents: “In Defense of Food” —a film starring best-selling author Michael Pollan, sharing his quest to answer one simple question:
What should I eat to be healthy?
The answer turns out to be much simpler than he imagined.
Today, the typical American diet includes lots of meat, white flour, sugar, and vegetable oils. It’s cheap, convenient, and has been processed to taste really good. But its effects on health are not so tasty, including alarming increases in obesity and type 2 diabetes.
To complicate matters, recommendations by “experts” about healthier ways of eating seem to change daily. Eat more protein and fewer carbs. Eat less meat. Consume more fiber. Drink less milk. Eggs are bad. Eggs are good. No wonder people are confused.
The film follows Pollan on a fascinating journey to discover the truth about food and health.
Everyone who attends will have the chance to win a FREE copy of Michael Pollan’s book “In Defense of Food” or a FREE copy of his book “Food Rules.” Names will be drawn randomly from those who join us for the screening. Space is limited, so you must sign up to attend.
Choices will be offering weekly emails, beginning the week of January 20th, and continuing for approximately 12 weeks, to encourage you on your health journey. Each week, we will focus on ONE tip for improving health through transforming the way we look at food. Complete the form below to sign up!
