For many, the prevalence of holiday goodies can present a big challenge. The challenge is even greater for those with health conditions that require being attentive to food choices, whether it is for weight loss, heart disease, diabetes, and quite frankly for anyone who wants to maintain good health. If someone you care about is working on healthy eating habits, you want to support them as best you can. Studies show family support goes a long way to helping ones self-confidence and success when changing behaviors. And while you may have the best of intentions, the last thing anyone wants to hear is, should you be eating that? That has never worked for me. I want to show my independence.

The 12 Easiest Healthy Eating Tips–Ever!
“Before now, we’ve seen studies looking at prices of one or a few foods or diets, in one city and from one store,” said Mayuree Rao. “And the results have been mixed, with some studies finding that the healthier options cost more and some studies finding they don’t.” Rao is a junior research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health and a medical student at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. She led the study that was published in BMJ Open. The research team identified 27 previous studies from 10 countries http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/garcinia-cambogia-extract—crucial-data-released-231403591.html that met their inclusion criteria and reviewed each of them. Fourteen studies were conducted in the U.S, two in Canada, six in Europe and five in other countries including South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Brazil.

Eating Healthy Costs Only $1.50 a Day More Than Eating Unhealthy
Eat big picture. “Eating well is about the whole dietary pattern-not one food, nutrient, or ingredient. Instead of focusing on eating one nutrient at a time to protect one component of health at a time, eat foods of high overall nutritional quality as part of a wholesome diet, and you’ll defend against virtually all forms of ill health.” -David L. Katz, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center and author of Disease Proof RELATED: 11 Crazy-Delicious Desserts with Hidden Healthy Ingredients 4.

Healthy eating costs an extra $1.50 per day: study
While $1.50 a day doesn’t seem like much of a financial burden, the problem arises when that cost per year (about $550) is multiplied out for a family of four (about $2,200). This, the authors note, could burden low-income families. Still, the authors point out, $550 per person per year is a relatively small amount of money when compared with medical costs associated with diet-related chronic diseases that can result from eating an unhealthy diet. It is a well-known that high-fat diets can lead to heart disease and other chronic medical conditions, but a recent international study, which included researchers from Yale University and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, among others, published in the journal Nature, showed that foods high in salt may be a factor in increased numbers of auto-immune diseases. Autoimmune diseases are those in which the immune system, which protects against germs, erroneously attacks healthy tissue.
