    Tip of the Week:

    The American Diabetes Association recommends eating 2-3 servings of non-fried fish per week for dietary omega-3 fatty acids.  Seafood contains omega-3 fatty acids that are considered a good type of fat because of the benefits they provide.  Omega-3 benefits include:

    • reduction of blood triglyceride levels,
    • prevention of blood clotting (which can cause blood vessels to narrow and ultimately become blocked),
    • possible reduction of blood pressure, and 
    • food sources are low in saturated fat.
    Strive to eat seafood 2-3 times per week!

    Exercise Tip:

    Having trouble getting into the exercise grove?  Try getting up a little earlier in the morning and going for a long walk.  After you finish your workout reward yourself with T.V., Internet, or some other leisure activity you enjoy.  You will feel better after exercise and the reward will be greater.
