In today's fast paced world, we are constantly on the go. As a result, it is so easy to eat from the many “fast” food restaurants, frozen or boxed foods found at the grocery store and of course the white flower foods such as white bread, pasta or white rice. Of course there are the junk foods such as chips, cookies, cakes, sodas, etc. Unfortunately, these foods are loaded with sugars, carbohydrates, saturated fats and sodium. These foods have little nutritional value. Over time, a diet of this type can lead to obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, cancer, high blood pressure and heart disease. It is up to you to make a conscious effort to change your eating habits. That is the first step. The second step is to consult with the doctors at Priority Medical & Rehab Centers who can teach you about foods to eat and foods to avoid. We believe that everything should be in moderation. It is ok to have a piece of cake once in a while or a slice of pizza. We will show you what to eat and when.
