Eating For Health Announces new “Lighten It Up!” Service to Help Food Establishments Deliver Healthier Meal Options
Today we announce a new service. Lighten It Up!TM was created to help food establishments respond to consumers’ requests for healthier options.
“People love to eat in restaurants but have no idea what the nutrition content of their meal is. This results in the intake of too much fat and sodium, which for many, can be deadly,” says Debbie Gilbert Taylor, of Eating for Health. “Those suffering from high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, stroke, hypertension and other chronic diseases are at especially high risk. In a world where portions have grown supersized, it is particularly alarming, as not only is the food content unhealthy, but the portions sizes are triple the size of a healthy meal. To put this in perspective, taking in just 100 calories per day more than you burn, amounts to 12 pounds of extra weight in a year. Many people take in more than an extra 100 calories each day. What we see is a frightening rise in obesity and its inherent medical problems.” Over one third of Americans are classified as obese today, which includes children under age 18.
Lighten It Up! consults with restaurants, schools, caterers and other food service institutions, helping them create new dishes or revamp existing menu items, with fewer calories and fat, without loss of taste and visual appeal.
Eating For Health is Serv-Safe Certified, to ensure good sanitation and food safety practices. They also offer individual consultation for special dietary needs, weight loss and maintenance, community education workshops and presentations, corporate wellness seminars and hosts a nutrition blog.
