Lack of time

Lack of time is a common barrier to healthy eating. You may tell yourself that you're too busy or that you have more important things to do than shop for and make healthy meals.

But healthy eating doesn't have to take a lot of time. You can make a healthy meal just as quickly as an unhealthy one. You just need to plan, have the right foods on hand, and learn how to cook some quick and healthy meals.

  • Ask friends or coworkers who eat healthfully how they find time.
  • Get family members to help you chop vegetables or make a salad.
  • Find a cookbook or recipes for quick, healthy meals.
  • Take a cooking class with a friend or loved one.

Confusing information

Sometimes a food that seems like a good choice may not be so healthy. A "low-fat" cookie may have less fat, but it may have as much sugar and as many calories as a regular cookie. Potato chips that are "cholesterol-free" may still have a lot of fat, calories, and salt.

Use the Nutrition Facts labelcamera.gif on packaged, canned, and frozen foods to help you make healthy choices. The label lists the nutrients, including the fat, salt, and sugar in each serving, and it tells you how many servings are in the package.

If you want to learn more, talk with your doctor or meet with a registered dietitian.
