Americans eat a lot more calories today than they did just a few decades ago.
Part of the problem is fast food and super-sized portions. Our food servings have doubled or tripled at restaurants – and even at home.
Another part of the problem is hidden calories in processed food. The addition of sweeteners and preservatives has an increasing effect on our waistlines.
The key to a healthy weight is to avoid packaged and processed foods, and to choose foods like fresh fruits and veggies. They’re packed with health benefits and fill you up, without the calories!
