Increasing Fruit and Vegetables in your diet

Posted by Healthy Life Style Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Eating A Healthy Diet includes the latest dietary guidelines which call for five to thirteen servings of fruits and vegetables a day , depending on one's caloric intake. For a person who needs 2,000 calories a day to maintain weight and health, this translates into nine servings. 

Try filling half your plate with vegetables at each meal. Serving up salads, stir fry, or other vegetable-rich fare makes it easier to reach the goal of Eating A Healthy Diet

Eating plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you ward off heart disease and stroke, control blood pressure, prevent some types of cancer, avoid a painful intestinal ailment called diverticulitis, and guard against cataract and macular degeneration, two common causes of vision loss.

Keep fruit out where you can see it. Keep it out on the counter or in the front of the fridge.
