Julie, you've eaten pizza the last four days! You need to eat healthier.
Because poor dietary habits can lead to decreased energy and unhealthy body weight.
That won't happen to me.
Actually, it can. About 90% of Americans eat more sodium than recommended for a healthy diet.
Wow. I didn't know that. What else can happen?
You also increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Does this happen to a lot of other people?
Actually yes. over 78 million U.S. adults are obese.

How can I avoid that?
Make sure to emphasize vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and low fat products.
And limit saturated and trans fats, sodium, and added sugars.
