Holiday eating warning from Dr. Fuhrman and his holiday webinair schedule.

Sunday, December 01, 2013

Dr. Furhman's web site had this message. I did not know about the high number of heart attacks this time of the year. chris

"The average American gains 8 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day and those pounds are likely to stay around forever and just keep accumulating with the years. Worse than that, eating for recreation through the holidays causes thousands of deaths each year from heart attacks. The three days of the year when most Americans die of heart attacks are December 25, 26 and January 1. Overindulging on food and drink during holidays can be deadly."

Fuhrman is having 7 webenairs to explain how people can control eating --and eat according to his philosophy. Members and non-members can participate. I signed up.

The first of these Fuhrman webinairs is Dec. 2. chris

    I don't think that applies to SparkPeople, we are here to control our eating and I know I have.

    When I worked in a hospital (many years ago), we always got a few people who went into heart failure when their already weak hearts were overloaded by the salt from a ham dinner and resultant water retention. Kentucky Fried Chicken was not uncommon before worsening heart failure too.
