This is Dr. Mike Moreno from Kaiser Permanente San Diego with an important message about nutrition.

Are you hungry for ways to eat well and stay healthy?

When you learn how to choose your food wisely, you’ll find yourself with increased energy, improved mood, better weight control, and a strong defense against illness.

The best part? It's simple to do.

  •    Balance your calories by paying attention to portion size. A serving may be less that you think!
  •   Choose water instead of sugary drinks. You’d be surprised how much sugar is in your favorite sodas and juices.
  •   Get 5 servings of veggies and 3 servings of fruit each day
  •    Focus on healthy options, and reduce processed foods that are high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats.

A healthy diet is one of the most powerful medicines you have to keep you well. Eating nutritious foods not helps you today, but can add years to your life by helping fight off many diseases.
