Wellness & Health Promotion — Bite #1 — Healthy Fast Food article

Although it has been many months since my last post I am excited to be back in the
saddle again and sharing ideas that you can use in order to Take Charge of your
own health and well-being.

I will be shifting away from the topic of health care reform now that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the law of the land. I hope that any of you that have read my blog
in the past understand that it was not the intent of the law that I disagreed, it was a matter of how the law was going to go about solving the health care issues in our country that I was concerned. One of the positive outcomes of this legislation was to focus attention on what I believe is the key to getting our arms around how to control healthcare costs going forward and that is wellness and health promotion. Unfortunately the new law barely scratches the surface of bringing wellness and health promotion to the forefront of the health care system. Therefore, it will be my intent to focus my blog entirely on bringing ideas and tools to my readers that will help them when they choose to get healthy and stay healthy. We as Americans need to Take Charge of our own health and well-being if our current and future health care systems are to have a fighting chance.

I have been working over the past four years on my new book that I am co-authoring with my personal physician Dr. Mark Levy. The working title of our book is “Take Charge of Your Own Health and Well-Being” — It’s Your Personal Health Care Crisis. We are very excited because we are getting close to our publication date which is scheduled for the beginning of fall 2011. It is our intent through this project to create a toolkit available for all that will continue to evolve in helping people to make the decision to take charge of their health and well-being. There will also be tools included that will help you to keep your commitments to yourself and follow through on implementing your strategies to accomplish these worthwhile goals.

To begin the process of offering valuable content to all of our readers that are in line with the goals of our new book I am enclosing an excellent article I came across that I want to share with all of you to use as a tool to help you on your journey to Take Charge of your own health and well-being. If it is your goal to get healthy and stay healthy then I know this article will come in handy.

We all lead extremely busy lives and many times due to the numerous commitments for yourselves, spouses and children the only option available for breakfast, lunch or dinner is fast food. After reading the article I am enclosing you will be armed with the knowledge and information you need to make healthier fast food choices. With the One Bite Connection at your fingertips the old adage “there was nothing I could do” can be a thing of the past.
