HOW MUCH DID THAT LUNCH REALLY COST?
1. Do you REALLY think that the 950-calorie fast food lunch with 1000mg of sodium only cost you ~ $3.99?! Did you add the $20 co-pay for that cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes medication?
2. What makes you sick - excessive calories or dollars? Do you know the real value of your food?
3. Would you throw away $2000? That's exactly what people with Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and other weight-related problems do every year by not taking control of their weight. Hmm... $2000 - could have been a nice vacation.
