Eating Healthy Benefits Everyone!
Eating healthy should be a goal for everyone. However, it is more than likely the majority of the general population do not follow healthy eating patterns. Let’s use the United States as an example. healthcare.gov in a web article, Dietary Guidelines 2015-2020 *stated:
- ♦ “About three-fourths of the population has an eating pattern that is low in vegetables, fruits, dairy, and oils”. 1
- ♦ “More than half of the population is meeting or exceeding total grain and total protein foods recommendations, but, as discussed later in the chapter, are not meeting the recommendations for the subgroups within each of these food groups”. 2
- ♦ “Most Americans exceed the recommendations for added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium”. 3
healthcare.gov also added: “In addition, the eating patterns of many are too high in calories. Calorie intake over time, in comparison to calorie needs, is best evaluated by measuring body weight status. The high percentage of the population that is overweight or obese suggests that many in the United States over consume calories. As documented in the Introduction, Table I-1, more than two-thirds of all adults and nearly one-third of all children and youth in the United States are either overweight or obese”. 4
Some of these points from healthcare.gov are worth repeating. Around 75 % The United States eating habits include low vegetable, fruits, dairy, and oils consumption. On the flip side, there is high sodium, sugar and saturated fats consumption by ‘most’. High-calorie intake compound these problems with over 66% with obesity and overweight as the by-product. What does all this mean? The underlying need is for improvement in healthy diet considerations!
A Diabetic Diet is Recommended as “The Best Eating Plan for Most Everyone”, by the Mayo Clinic!
Let’s take a look at an array of goodies on a diabetic diet such as Fish, poultry and lean meats, fruits, vegetable, whole grains, low-fat dairy, nuts, legumes, oils (example: Olive, canola) and seasoning to name most of the heavy hitters! That’s a list with a solid foundation for any healthy, balanced, enjoyable meal for anyone including a diabetic diet. In fact, the prestigious and #1 ranked hospital in the United States, Mayo Clinic in a web-based article on September 9, 2016, emphasized in a definition of a diabetic diet stating:
“A diabetes diet simply means eating the healthiest foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes.
A diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that’s naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. Key elements are fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone”.5 Let’s reinforce the last line of the quote again. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone. Ladies and gentlemen, it does not get any better in terms of affirming a diabetic diet is the best eating plan for most of us!
