Health Quotes from Doctors & WHY Eat Salad!

There is an article in this month's Self Magazine that has and interview with the doctors from the show The Doctors
My favorite was question # 5, which asked "What do you wish people knew about their health?"  Here are the answers:

**"Being healthy has to be a lifelong habit. It encompasses so much more than going to your doctor once a year. If you eat healthy, exercise, an decrease stress, you're going to feel good about yourself." -Dr. Masterson

**"You don't have to go to medical school to be in charge of your health. Know your history and your body. Treat it like a machine you want to run forever." - Dr. Ordon

**"If you eat well, you're healthier. You perform better at school, work, and athletics. You have better skin, eyesight, energy and attention, and less chronic illness. You also feel better on a day to day basis. I eat well because I love feeling 10 years younger. Who wouldn't?!" - Dr. Sears

**"You have control. If 30 percent of what happens to our health is genetics, then 70 percent is determined by the choices we make." -Dr. Stork

So true!!!

Here's another tip from Men's Health Magazine explaining WHY we should eat our greens!!  According to researchers at Penn State University, if you add a salad to your entree, you'll consumer 11% fewer calories than when your meals don't include green. Eating a salad increases satiety levels without packing on calories.

Works for me...

Hope you've had an awesome weekend!!

Nothing quite like a fresh salad! The avocados in that picture are calling my name. At least they are a good fat!! :)

Love this post! I was just trying to explain to one of my friends that I wanted a salad for lunch with her today and she doesn't get it. Maybe I should send her this link!! :)

I'm a big salad eater. My downfall is ranch dressing :( whoops. I don't drench it in it, but I get tired of always having to choose Italian or something lighter of the sort..
