Powerful Healthy Aging Tool – Your Fork!

My fork is a tool?  What does that mean?

You have heard me say a time or two that I believe the food & lifestyle choices we make have a direct impact on the quality of our lives – at every age.  

Very few Americans consume anything near the minimum USDA daily recommendation of 5-13 portions of vegetables or fruits, equivalent to 2-5 cups.  

  • 2013 US Center for Disease Control states over 35% of US adults and adolescents reported they consumed fruit less than once a day.  22.6% of adults and 37.7% of adolescents reported eating vegetables less than once a day.
  • Extra pounds means extra cancer risk
  • Fat Cells are hard to lose and more harmful – visceral fat (deep under the tissues in and near the organs)
  • Saturated fats may boost deep belly fat
  • Sugars may boost liver and deep belly fat
  • 5 – 20 lbs makes a difference – risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, gallstones, arthritis, & obesity related cancers are increased


  • Replace crackers and cheese with yogurt and nuts
  • Go for a walk to increase your heart rate, do resistance exercises
  • Drink smoothies and add greens, veggies, fruits
  • Eat soups and add a variety of veggies and legumes or grains
  • Drink lemon water, add apple cider vinegar
  • An apple a day…
  • Think progress NOT perfection; every step forward is a step in the right direction
