"Eat more oat bran!"
"Cut back on carbs!"
Today, people hear an overwhelming amount of conflicting information from the media about diet and health. There are many nutritional fads and "fast fixes" that people will talk about at work or try for themselves.
Our dietitians will also speak about how to eat healthy, become informed about nutrition, and give up-to-date information on disease-fighting foods.
Good eating habits will help workers to be healthy, get sick less often, have more energy, and simply feel and perform their best. These include: heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. The economic impact of these diseases is billions of dollars each year. Also, a person's diet plays a prominent role in five of the 10 leading causes of death. It is estimated that more than 300,000 deaths occur each year because of poor diet.
