Most Americans are aware that heart disease has been the number one cause of death in the US, now following close behind if not surpassing is diabetes.  Most Americans are also aware that our diet can really make a difference in our health.  What kind of foods and how much, that is the question!  You never have to worry about over eating lettuces and celery!  These foods do not pose health problems in  the above diseases.  Too much fat, fatty meat, fried foods and empty carbohydrates, they are the culprits.  These tasty morsels are adding risk of disease.  Another important point is not to eat more calories than you need.  If you sit down to a fast food burger, fries and a soft drink… how many empty calories have you just eaten that are contributing to a lifestyle that will be less than optimal.  If you sit down to a salad of greens and various colored vegetables, a few ounces of lean chicken, beef or fish and a high fiber carb side you have just energized your body with quality fuel, cancer fighting phyto-nutrients, muscles building protein and a satisfying energy fuel for your work, accompanied by a good glass of zero calorie water.  You can get to crave it.

After you eat, your body converts any extra calories into triglycerides, a common type of fat.  High triglycerides are usually in combination with a high LDL and a low HDL cholesterol, and that is an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.  Is the junk food really worth it?  That is your choice.  Remember your choices not only effect you, but all those you love and others too.  Chew on that!

Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
