Stay in control by understanding what you’re putting into your body.

We have all heard the saying ‘Knowledge is Power.’ Regular exercise and portion size is important, but how does your body react to the foods you eat?

What should you avoid or be aware of? Foods that contain large amounts of sodium, cholesterol and sugar.

Here are a few examples:

  • Packaged turkey is a great source of lean protein but processed foods contain a large amount of sodium.
  • When you see the word ‘salad’ you probably think it’s healthy. However, the salads listed below all contain large amounts of sodium, sugar, and cholesterol or carbohydrates.

-Chicken salad

-Macaroni Salad

-Prepackaged salad with rich, creamy dressing

How is your diet affecting your body?  Knowledge is power and HealthCheckUSA offers lab testing that gives you a glimpse at your overall health.
