Eating Well

  1. Eating the Right Foods for All-Day Energy

    If your blood glucose drops too low -- which can happen if you go too long without eating -- you're going to feel lightheaded and lethargic.

  2. Give Your Energy Level a Tune-Up

    Eating smaller, healthy meals distributes energy calories more evenly than large meals and keeps your blood sugar normal throughout the day.

  3. How to Junk a Junk-Food Diet

    Whether you’re trying to maintain a healthy weight or improve your health, junk food can sabotage a worthy effort.

  4. Ignore These Diet ‘Rules’

    If you’re eating according to outdated or untrue dietary commandments, all your efforts to lose weight could be in vain.

  5. Increase Your Energy Level Through Sleep, Nutrition, Exercise

    Instead of popping a pill to restore long-lost vigor, try propping a pillow under your head and getting to bed earlier. More sleep, exercise and better nutrition are the natural path to greater vitality.

  6. Low-Fat BBQ: Cooking as Delicious as It Looks

    Barbecuing uses healthy cooking techniques for a low-fat, healthy lifestyle -- especially when compared with frying.

  7. Measuring Your Meal

    Portion sizes are bigger today, and that increase has contributed to the growing numbers of overweight or obese Americans.

  8. Nutrition's Role in Disease Prevention

    Evidence is mounting that a healthful diet can help protect you from some diseases. What you eat -- or don't eat -- may help prevent heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes.

  9. Potbellies Warn of Later Problems

    The fact is, you might not care as much about looks as your wife does, but that fat around your abdomen is no laughing matter. A man's potbelly often warns of later problems ranging from heart disease to cancer, diabetes, arthritis, back pain, and sleep apnea.

  10. Simple Ways to Improve Your Diet

    Eating healthy can reduce your risk of illness and lengthen your life. Eating a balanced, low-fat, low-cholesterol diet reduces your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, diabetes, stroke and other diseases. Follow these tips to help improve your diet.
