LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Obesity in California, though among the lower rates in the nation, is still high; particularly children of all ages are showing high obesity rates. Furthermore, 46% of California adults have pre-diabetes or undiagnosed diabetes, while 9% have already been diagnosed with diabetes.
Habits are formed in the early years, the older one becomes, the harder it is to change them. So it is worth helping our children to develop good habits when young, so all they have to do is stick to them, rather than having to break bad habits and start new healthy habits.
We all know that a healthier lifestyle requires - amongst other factors – daily exercise, a varied diet with five or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day and a lower sugar intake. Yet people rarely act on this knowledge.
That's because making change is challenging and requires discipline:
"[When changing habits] Relapse is common, perhaps even inevitable. You should regard it as an integral part of the process. Think of it this way: you learn something about yourself each time you relapse. Maybe the strategy you adopted didn't fit into your life or suit your priorities," says a study on Harvard Health Publications.
Trong Nguyen, founder and CEO of Foods 2.0, LLC. understood this challenge and resolved to find a way to make change that is easier to keep up. He created Sugar 2.0 + Probiotics, which can be used just like regular sugar but with only half the sugar content, while the other half is made up of much healthier, naturally sweet soluble fiber. To make the mix even more potent, probiotics are also added.
"Now all you have to do is grab a different bag at the supermarket and continue living your life as usual and you have already done something to improve your family's health," Nguyen says about the advantages of his product.
The health-conscious father of four adds, "For moms and dads who want to go even further, homemade lemonade and iced teas as well as home baked snacks can be made to replace sugary sodas and pre-packaged foods. With Sugar 2.0 the taste is the same but the impact on health is drastically reduced."
