Here’s a joke for you… How do you get time to stand still? …. Go on a juice fast. Ha Ha.

But seriously, I’ve been thinking a lot about food. When the television is on, I am inundated with images and videos of fast food. When I walk into the grocery store, the signs and advertising are almost screaming at me. Everywhere I go, I seem to noticed the messages more that say, “Eat. You must eat to be happy.” It really is a fast food world that we live in.

Guess how much the fast food industry spent on marketing/advertising in 2010? Ten million dollars? Twenty millions dollars? Not even close. According to Yale’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity’s new report, it’s 4.2 billion dollars! Is that not unreal? It’s a wonder that anyone ever is able to buck the trend and get healthy.

What healthy changes have you added to your lifestyle?
