CF is a genetic disease that affects the body's epithelial cells, which are found in many places, including the sweat
1 Wow. After doing this 3-day nutrition assessment that is all I have to say. I actually thought I was a nutritious person, but I can see now that I really am not. In “My Plate” I fell really short in the vegetables, fruits, and dairy daily intake. I took in only 23% of the recommended vegetables, which actually really surprises me because, recently, I have been switching out my snack of choice for carrots, so I thought that would have been beneficial to me for this assignment; it doesn’t look like that was the case.

I don’t like eating veggies but this was one of the recommendations that the assessment gave me. I have to try to eat more veggies that are green and fresh. When I was younger I did not grow up eating veggies so this is why now I dislike eating them now. Lately I found out that eating white rice or white bread are unhealthy.
2. The company evolved from a small business a multiimillon dollar leader in the natural organic food industry because she started with the cheddar cheese flavored popcorn, called Smartfood which became one of the fastest selling snack foods in United States history. However, Annie later sold the brand to PepsiCo Inc's Frito-Lay for $15 million in 1989. However Annie realized that the all natureal white cheddar tasted just as good on pasta as it did on popcorn, thus creating Annie's Homegrown. Annie doesn't feel like she is very good at selling the product so she delegated day to day mangement to others and focused on doing what she does, creating new recipes.
According to Chasity Goddard, most of the time there is a reason “55 percent of patients experiencing recurrent miscarriages have an underlying blood clotting disorder as the cause. The good news is that this report also states that "more than 98 percent will have a normal term delivery with preconception aspirin”. During the change of birth control, I got pregnant with my son and it terrified me. But, I decided to take low dose baby aspirin everyday and I was doing well.

Some are uncontrollable, like genetics, and some are, such as choosing to eat the cupcake instead of the fiber bar. That is the funny thing: the high obesity rate can be lowered and maintained just by making healthier choices every day. Many of our lifestyle choices lead to us being overweight and obese, but that can easily change; as America continue to ignore the obesity rate, many of us are dying each day from this disease called diabetes. Because our lifestyle choices affect our weight, our health, and the chances of us becoming obese, we can reduce that by balancing our energy, having a more active lifestyle, eating a healthy diet, changing our environment, and getting more sleep. One of the main reasons of obesity is the lack of energy balance, meaning that the amount of food you eat is the right amount to manage your weight.

Weight gain has become a prominent enough that, we now face a nationwide crisis that kills up to 400,000 citizens a year, and raises medical costs into the hundred billions. The real question – how did we all become so fat? The food we eat is plagued with fats, salts, sugars, and harmful preservatives that have ultimately deteriorated our society as a whole. A recent study claimed that being overweight isn’t from over consuming, but from eating too little REAL food. This means hearty whole grains and unprocessed fruits and vegetables, opposed to whopping Big Macs and potato chips saturated in salt.
