Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Suggesting That We Think Differently About Our Mealtimes

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, offers insight on the importance of thinking about eating healthy foods rather than engaging in diet crazes.

NEW YORK, NY – May 9, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website suggesting that some vegetables and spices actually suppress the appetite, making them much healthier choices than diet pills with the same powers. Dr. Veronica explains her stance in her blog, titled “Think Strategic Eating, Not Strategic Dieting.”

Dr. Anderson writes, “Jenny Craig. Atkins. Weightwatchers. Low Carb. No Carb. Low Fat. Low Calorie. High Protein. We live in a dieting crazed society, in which everyone is looking for the latest way to shed pounds without preventing them from indulging in the foods they want so desperately. Our country’s people want to be thin and skinny, but they’re not really interested in being healthy. That’s why the diets all fail. My solution? Let’s start looking away from dieting and towards strategic eating.”

“I encourage all of us to take a serious look at the strategic diets that we are buying into. What are the consequences of these diets? Instead of strategic dieting, let’s all engage in strategic eating. Eat healthy foods in moderate portions, at regular mealtimes. Eat more veggies and grains than you do processed foods, and you’ll have the healthy and fit body that you’ve been paying lots of diet drug money for,” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
