Frequent breaks to stretch and stand may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes for desk workers, couch potatoes and other people who sit for long amounts of time.
In June of 2007 I started Weight Watchers and then a month or so later I was invited to a sneak peak at the Poway Dream Dinners. My first question to Phil was if nutritional value was available and was thrilled to see that it was. I made my meal went home and enjoyed it. I got busy with everyday life and a few months later I finally ordered my meals once I reviewed the nutritional information and how it fit into my Weight Watchers Flex Plan.
Seventy-five percent of Americans say they are concerned with their weight and a record breaking 70 percent cite their reason for making dietary change is weight loss. A surprising set of numbers since most are not successful with their weight loss efforts over time. The failure has more to do with our hectic lifestyles and the decline of Americans’ cooking skills over the past several decades than lack of willpower. Sixty-nine percent of people admit making same day or last-minute dinner decisions. The result: Americans order take-out and east out more often.
Eating dinner out is associated with an increased risk of weight gain; and adults who frequently eat dinner out are about twice as likely to be obese than those who eat at home.
Dream Dinners, the originator of the meal assembly industry, can help busy families get dinner on the table. Cheri Neyens, a Dream Dinners customer, explains:
“I knew there was no way I could stick to a diet that was limited to broiled chicken and fish. I knew that I had no imagination in the kitchen. Every month I go onto the Dream Dinners web site, and armed with the menu and the nutritional information, I make my selection of meals that I will be preparing for the next month. The dinners we eat are absolutely delicious, and I feel really good about serving them to my family. One year later I am happy to report I have lost 88 pounds and my husband has lost 90 pounds!”
