Not to spoil it, but the winner is Dog! Though, this New York Times article is a few months old (December), I couldn’t help but sharing. Check out the article to see how people that walk with dogs benefit. I can tell you from my own expierence, I have been rescheduling my Monday hike at Runyon with Eric for the last three weeks, but have yet to flake on walking Romeo.

Last week’s article in the New York Times, “Big Benefits Are Seen From Eating Less Salt” explains that consuming half a teaspoon less salt per day can reduce the risks of heart attacks and death, according to the latest report from the New England Journal of Medicine. Our top tips for reducing salt:
1. Replace salt with Gomasio, a salt-like condiment that combines sesame seeds and salt, some products include sea vegetables. Gomasio adds essential minerals like calcium, magnesium and iron to your diet and gives your food the salt flavor without the sodium. You can find it at health food stores.
2. Read the labels. Look at how much sodium is in what your eating, don’t ignore it…you should know what you’re eating.
3. Cook more and control the amount of salt you add. Use low sodium broths, low sodium soy sauce, spices & herbs to add flavor to your food.

This recent New York Times article highlights research that proves how washing your hands can help prevent colds and the flu. We’ve all heard this before, but what I found interesting was the point about how many times a day we touch our faces and thus transfer the germs to our mouths and nose. They actually had video cameras on college kids computers to count how many times they touched their face, 49 times! I’d hate to know what my number would be!

A recent Time Magazine article that discusses America’s food crisis.
We thought was interesting and hope you can take the time to read it. The simple truth of it is, what you eat plays a very important role in loosing weight. Also, we loved how it mentions the benefits of movement (vs. hours at the gym)…you know, walking to lunch, taking the stairs…just a little more movement in the day to day of life can go a long way.
