Happy New Year!

Although I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, I’m always interested in hearing about the resolutions that others have made. I just finished reading an NBC news article entitled “2017 New Year’s Resolutions: The Most Popular and How To Stick to Them“.

Not surprisingly, ‘Get Healthy’ was #1 on the list, based on a compilation of Google search terms from January to October 2016. Apparently, there were 62,776,640 searches for the term ‘get healthy’ during that period – a 13.77% increase over the previous year.

where to goThis is good news and bad news. Why? Well, the good news is that people want to get healthy. The bad news is that they’re looking to the internet for advice on how to do that. I can tell you from years of personal and clinical experience that a lot of the health and nutrition information out there on the World Wide Web is contradictory, confusing, based on poor science (or no science at all!) and just plain wrong … including a comment in the article that says if your resolution is to lower your cholesterol, just stop eating seafood! I’m not promoting seafood, but for most people with cholesterol issues, eliminating seafood won’t make much of a difference, if any at all. It’s no wonder that rates of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease are worse than ever – including among children.

Getting healthy isn’t about exercising more or eating less. It isn’t about counting calories and going on a diet. It isn’t about swapping out butter for margarine or replacing regular soda with diet soda. It isn’t about buying low-fat foods or gluten-free foods. It isn’t about putting bunches of kale and spinach into a smoothie everyday.

If ‘getting healthy/healthier’ was one of your New Year’s Resolutions, then get off on the right foot (I originally accidentally typed ‘then get off on the right food‘ … not a bad Freudian slip!) by booking a nutrition consultation. I’m offering 25% off all 1st time Nutrition Consultations that are booked by the end of January 2017 (Regular price is $80 + HST). Call The Marshall Health Clinic at 613-820-0421 today to book your appointment. Note that insurance receipts are provided upon request.
