This time of year, everyone thinks about losing a little weight and exercising more. Great resolutions, but let's be honest: Most of us don't keep them. Well, here's a little motivation:
More and more research is coming out about the role the Western Diet has in the development of Colon Cancer. Results indicate we need to eat less red meat and adopt a low-fat diet.
Exercise not only prevents Colon Cancer, it increases survival rates in those patients who have it. Something as simple as walking an hour each day can make a big difference.
I have been trying to cook at least 3 vegetarian meals a week. We rarely eat red meat; chicken and fish are the perferred choice. Our downfall has been exercise. No excuse, really. We just don't like it! Walking is simple enough. So, that's where we'll start... Oh, and I should mention the Wii. That's exercise you can do in the privacy of your own home, and it's fun!
