  Mistake #5: Mediocre Nutrition  

"The greatest wealth is health."
~ Virgil (BC 70-19), Roman Poet

5. Mediocre nutrition. Junk food makes us feel less vital, shortens our lives, makes us more vulnerable to disease, and costs society hundreds of billions of dollars each year in extra health costs. Here's just one example: one in three Americans are predicted to become diabetic, costing America over a hundred billion dollars per year. Good nutrition isn't rocket science: experts recommend that we (1) take a daily vitamin, (2) eat lots of fruits and vegetables, (3) eat "healthy fats" and avoid bad fats and sugars, and (4) eat whole grains and proteins. By doing all that, we'll slash our chances of developing cancer and many other health problems. Best resources: visit for more information, and/or to get a customized health plan.
