    Tip of the Week:

    The American Diabetes Association recommends 25-35 grams of fiber per day.  To increase dietary fiber:

    • choose whole fruits and vegetables over juices,
    • choose whole grain bread over white bread,
    • eat whole grain cereals more often than refined, high sugar cereals,
    • select brown rice over white rice, and
    • choose whole grain pasta over refined flour pasta.

    A diet rich in fiber can help reduce cholesterol levels and promote weight loss.

    Greg's Exercise Tips:

      Success is 5% Perspiration and 95% Dedication

    A daily exercise journal is a great way to track progress and stay motivated.  Record the date, your body weight, and exercise duration after each workout.  It is incredibly motivating to look back in the journal/log and see how far you have progressed!
