Nutrition Tips and Advice: 

“Fueling for our Future” is a reminder that what we eat today will impact us tomorrow. Every year in March we celebrate National Nutrition Month, and this year’s theme from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is “Fuel for the Future”.  The reason is that nutrition has such a large impact not only on how we do our day to day tasks, but on our long term health and ability to perform as well.  Eating poorly over time will increase our risk for heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. For military service members, it also means decreases in their readiness and performance.  “Fuel for the Future” also suggests that if you put junk (such as candy, soda, highly processed pre-packaged foods) in your gas tank to fuel your body that you will not go anywhere and will not be able to perform to the best of your abilities. More importantly, it will continue to get worse over time.
