Knowing These Numbers Can Save Your Life
Knowing the numbers can save your life, or the life of someone you love.
If that sounds important to you, then answer these 2 questions best you can; they may take a little research – but again they may save a life as well.
2 QUESTIONS FOR YOU:
1- Do you have any idea how much saturated fat you consume in a day?
2- Do you adhere to the 2,500mg of sodium principle?
If not, you are running the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and many other conditions associated with un-healthy eating habits; or should we call it the lack of educating yourself about living healthier.
* According to the FDA, you should only consume 2,300-2,500mg of sodium each day. (1 can of chicken soup has this entire amount!!)
* 30% of your entire caloric intake should come from fat. For example, if you consume 2,000 calories today, 600 calories should come from fat intake- THAT’S ALL! (1 dozen chicken wings, 2 slices of pizza… both contain an entire day’s worth, depending on the size, sauce, cheese,etc)
YOUR TAKEAWAY: Make a list of what you ate yesterday. Be sure to include condiments, coffee creamer and sugars, all beverages, and candy, gum or mints. Can you see how difficult it can be to stay within the boundaries? Need help calculating these numbers? Leave a comment below and we will get in touch with you!
