Come on down to my Drive Thru!
In these current times of fast food restaurants, the rate of obesity is growing. Portion sizes have continued to mount up, with our waist lines following closely by. Sodas that were human size are now large enough to quench our thirsts for a week. Hamburgers, sandwiches and french fries that are a single serving, according to the menus, are plentiful enough to feed 2 people. What is it about our culture that has put this into place? Why are we the only country in the world with this frame of reference in terms of what should be on our plate? Our younger generation is growing up with this food point of reference being the norm.
The idea of large, super size and glutinous eating is a source of trouble for us all. The rise of health care cost lay primarily on the rise of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and make for a country filled with compromised immune systems.
Walking, running or any cardio activity sure helps, however, the commitment to staying focused on proper food portions is where it is at. Nutritional guide lines are slowly being put into place on many of our favorite fast food menus but has this come too late. Has our own point of view in terms of what is in that paper wrapped sandwich gotten out of hand?
Protein amount should be the size of one's fist. One cup of green vegetables. Ok, ok, if you have to eat those french fries, order the small. Who needs a large? If you get a large french fries share it with someone.
Come on down to "my" DriveThru! I got something to share. Roll down that window and come to my drive thru. A place where I will always encourage you to watch your portions. A place where I will share with you fitness pointers and motivate you to Never Stop Movin'! A place where you can hear the music and feel the beat and lead a healthier way of life.
