Healthy Eating and Social Well-Being
HEALTHY is a brand of food product created by H.J. Gerson, M.D. in 1970. The first major commercial product was developed under the name Healthful Way Food. A variety of other names have been used over the years for various purposes.
The Healthful Way Food product line includes snacks, cereals, fruits, vegetables and an assortment of premium dairy and meat products. This product line has expanded since its initial launch and has now included whole grain foods. The primary goal of Healthful Way Foods was to promote healthy eating in an easy-to-eat format. A major goal of the company was to avoid any calorie counting as well as sodium counting since these habits are considered unhealthy.
Healthful Way Foods has grown significantly over the years due to high demand and successful advertising efforts. In addition to an easy-to-use eating plan, the company offers a wide variety of healthy snacks, a selection of low fat meats and vegetables, as well as other nutritional advice about diet and nutrition. The Healthful Way Diet is a popular alternative to traditional diets and it has been used successfully by millions of people who suffer from obesity or type 2 diabetes. The health of our nation is threatened by the large number of overweight children and adults.
HEALTHY is committed to offering healthy diet choices to consumers and it also strives to educate the public on healthy eating. The company offers an online healthy diet program called Healthy Eating Web where you can find recipes, shopping lists, and helpful tips about healthy meal preparation and shopping. At the end of each day, the website provides readers with a ranking system based on the foods that they ate that day. If you use the healthy diet guide that comes with your Healthful Way Foods membership, you receive helpful information about preparing healthy recipes every day, healthy recipes for lunch, dinner, breakfast, and snack times, and a ranking system based on the foods you consume on a daily basis that gives you incentive to make healthier food choices.
As a registered diet and fitness magazine, Healthful Way Foods continually explores the most cutting-edge approaches to diet and nutrition to help you get the most from your food selections. Healthful Way is an open publication that welcomes the opinions of everyone who is willing to participate. It also welcomes people of all ages and sizes. Through our free articles, recipe downloads and nutrition tips, we strive to promote healthy lifestyles through healthy eating while promoting social well-being at the same time.
In recent years, several peer-reviewed journals have published research on how diets affect health and the risks of obesity and associated chronic diseases such as coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes and certain forms of cancer. These studies have shown that healthy eating regimen that includes fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes can help prevent heart disease, reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, lower the risks of diabetes, stabilize blood pressure and improve other aspects of well-being. This same research has shown that a low-fat, low-calorie diet is just as beneficial in helping people lose weight as a high-fat, low-calorie diet. With the recent popularity of low-carb diets that include foods such as raw broccoli and apples, as well as the growing number of people who are trying to eliminate trans fats from their diet, health experts are beginning to look past the labels and offer a range of healthy alternatives.
