Eating Healthy

Eating a balanced diet is one of the most important factors to living a
healthy life. With the fast-paced, high-stress environment we find
ourselves in, it's difficult to find the time to eat a well-balanced
meal. At your local health fair, you'll find all the resources you need
to provide a properly-proportioned meal for yourself and your family.
With partitioned plates, you'll be given tangible standards to follow for
vegetable, meat, and carbohydrate ratios.

 Overly-large portions may be the worst culprit contributing to an
unhealthy diet. More than anywhere else in the world, Americans have the
most food on their plates per meal. While the ratios of meals are
important, so too is the amount you're consuming. With the help of your
local health fair, you can determine exactly which portions are right for
you, and know how much is too much.

 Sometimes, fast food is the only option. When you're running from school
to soccer practice between making dinner and a conference call, grabbing
a hamburger at the local fast food chain may be the best you can do.
Fortunately, you can seek advice from your local health fair: take a
glance at a fast food pocket guide to see the best options when you're
crunched for time, or find tips for keeping healthy snacks handy when
you're in a pinch.


Exercise is incredibly important for physical and mental health, but it's
often difficult to find the time to begin a good workout routine. Use
your local health fair to get ideas for time-efficient exercises, or tips
on how to become more active. Whether it's a quick jog around the
neighborhood or tossing a baseball around with the kids, everyone can
benefit from an increased heart rate and a bit of physical activity.


Personal hygiene is a big part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle: no
matter how healthily you eat or how much you exercise, you'll still get
sick if you don't employ clean habits on a daily basis. At the health
fair, you can learn how washing your hands can prevent all sorts of
disease and infection. Find out how often you should be washing your
hands, and how important it is to keeping your family out of the doctor's
office during the upcoming flu season.

Your local health fair is a perfect resource for starting a healthy
lifestyle. Whether you need support for portion control, balancing your
meals, exercising, or personal hygiene tips, your local health fair has
all the advice and materials you'll need to get started.
