Hillsboro, OR (PRWEB) July 25, 2010
Dr. Wendy Abraham, ND, medical director of the ThinSpa rapid weight loss HCG diet, advises parents to monitor the amount of trans fat through processed food they and their children consume at home. While Oregon has two enacted laws to both divulge and monitor trans fat in restaurants and schools, families should monitor intake of trans fat at home. “Trans fats alter how insulin and glucose interact in the body. While some trans fat occurs naturally in some meats, artificial trans fats are manufactured for processed foods for the object of having a longer shelf life and are a contributing factor for child obesity, high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes and high cholesterol,” Dr. Abraham explains.
A recent segment on Good Morning America featured children getting cholesterol checks along with their wellness physicals. Dr. Abraham is concerned that this may lead to medicating kids to lower cholesterol instead of healthy food changes.
Dr. Abraham advocates healthy choices instead of adding more pharmaceutical intervention in growing children. Parents need to:
· Buy natural foods instead of packaged and processed foods
· Educate children about healthy fatty acids, which are necessary building blocks (found in fish and flax)
· Stay away from fast food chains and restaurants with high level of trans fat
· Exercise to build muscle, burn fat and lower levels of bad cholesterol
