The United States and its lower health standards

 In the United States, the health and wellness industry is a trillion dollar industry.  Citizens spend hard earned money to look good, perform sports, eat “healthy” and all other facets of the business.  We have personal trainers, nutrition coaches, private chefs, meal prep companies, mail order dinners, supplements, and even medical weight loss programs from your doctor.  Gyms are a plenty, YouTube videos by the thousands teaching you some simple way to lose body fat without equipment.  The point is, there are plenty of products and services available, yet the Unites States ranks in the top 10 for the unhealthiest countries in the world.  That’s right.  The United States spends more money on healthcare than almost any other country yet has one of the highest rates of obesity.  

One of the causes may be that the Unites States has a lower standard of health.  Food quality. Manufacturers place so many miscellaneous chemicals and substances into the food products that you see on store shelves.  Mostly so they can stay on the shelf longer.  Spoiled food doesn’t sell.  Here are just a few examples:


           


As you can see there are large amounts of ingredients in the US version than in that of the UK version.  The United States adds ingredients that are actually banned in other countries because we know it is unhealthy.  Food cost also plays a large part in the rate of obesity.  Its is cheaper to eat fast food than it is to have proper vegetables and quality, hormone free meat.  It is rather unsettling to see what the US is doing to its citizens.  Then again, when you have a for profit healthcare system, I guess it does pay to keep them sick.  

You don’t have to eat perfect, just eat better.

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
