Healthy eating on the go
Americans eat more food on the go than ever before. We spend more than $400 billion at restaurants. Nearly half the money we spend on food is spent on foods prepared outside the home. We eat 30 meals a year in our cars, and we buy more prepared, processed, and fast foods than ever before. Living a hectic lifestyle, as most physicians do, can limit your diet. Often, doctors don't take steps to eat healthy; instead, they take advantage of what foods are simply available during their strenuous schedule.
