Life is like a roller coaster, says Dr. Paul J. Rosch, president of the American Institute of Stress in New York.
Food is our fuel. You don?t select your gasoline based on the color of your car. So too our fuel choices should be based on what we know our body needs. We have all indulged in something that brings a smile to our face, from sight or thought alone. All too often, we are drawn in by catchy jingles and TV spots. Only to know that aching belly or extra trip to the lavatory was a result. Factors such as time, price, mood, upbringing, present company and habit influence our meal choices. Many of us try healthier options when they are presented, and may even notice differences or slight improvements in our health. Switching from soda pop to V8 is likely a step in the right direction, but it is basically like trading a can full of sugar and acid for a bottle of salt and vegetables not suitable for sale whole.
