If you’re scratching your head trying to come up with a response, you’re not alone.

This is why the U.S. Food & Drug Administration recently launched an effort to define what “healthy” actually means. In a statement, the agency said that “redefining ‘healthy’ is part of an overall plan to provide consumers with information and tools to enable them to easily and quickly make food choices consistent with public health recommendations and to encourage the development of healthier foods by the industry.” SUNSHINE KYBELLA FACTS • NONSURGICAL INJECTABLE • TYPICALLY A 10-15 MINUTE PROCEDURE • REQUIRES NO DOWNTIME • PERMANENTLY DESTROYS FAT CELLS BUY 1, GET 1 FREE KYBELLA $1,200.00 LIMITED TIME OFFER Juvéderm 1 syringe $500.00 Permanant Eyeliner 25% off The FDA has made an ongoing effort to help Americans make healthier food choices. This year it changed the labels on packaged goods to reflect how the public actually eats and to highlight added sugar in these products. The font size on the labeling also is larger, and there is additional nutrient information, such as the amount of vitamin D, potassium and calcium. At this time, the FDA offers a guidance document for manufacturers with a definition of the “healthy” claim used on food labels. There are two criteria: SPECIALS GOODBYE DOUBLE CHIN!

1. The food is not low in total fat but has a fat profile makeup of predominately mono and polyunsaturated fat. 2. The food contains at least 10 percent of the Daily Value (DV) of potassium or vitamin D. As part of this process, the FDA is asking the public for input on what “healthy” should mean from a nutritional standpoint, what their current interpretation of “healthy” is on food labels, and how this may affect their purchasing decisions. While the FDA works to redefine “healthy” on food labels, manufacturers can still use this term on their products as long as they meet current regulatory requirements. The reality is that the American diet is filled with processed foods, added sugar, salt and saturated fat, so making changes to how we define and label proper nutrition is necessary. However, a tried-and-true approach to healthier eating is a diet filled with lean meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, which will help consumers avoid the issue of food labels in the first place. A good rule of thumb is to stick to foods that maintain their quality and freshness for about a week in your refrigerator — and not those with expiration dates in the next decade. Long-Term Care Insurance by Andy Phillips, Agent State Farm Insurance 407-354-1320 Long-term care refers to the services you need when you’re certified chronically ill, not able to function independently, and need assistance performing at least two to three Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), resulting from a prolonged physical illness or severe cognitive impairment. • Seventy percent of people age 65-older need long-term care at some point in their lives. • The average cost of a nursing home stay is $87,600 per year. • In addition, 65 percent of care workers have missed time from work to care for another person. The purchase of long-term care insurance can help pay for care at home, adult day care, care at an assisted living facility, or care at a long-term care facility. Long-term care can help you keep the assets that you have spent your lifetime building and still maintain your current standard of living. An insurance agent can provide you with more details about this important coverage. A Place for the Mind & Body by Erin Sullivan, Public Relations Administrator Orange County Library System 407-835-7323 Everybody knows that libraries are healthy for your mind — reading enriches your life, connects you to new worlds, and opens doors to new opportunities. But did you know that today’s libraries also contribute to a healthy lifestyle in other ways? While libraries still lend books, they also host programs, events and classes that can help you improve your body inside and out. Yoga, tai chi, meditation, healthy cooking, parenting and art events are just a few of the offerings you can find at your local library. Libraries can help you try new things, discover new hobbies that can help melt away the stress in your life, or introduce you to activities that can contribute to a healthier lifestyle. And, of course, libraries contribute to better literacy in the community. While reading won’t tone your abs, it can contribute to your overall health. According to Science Daily, strong reading skills are tied to a healthier life. Studies show that reading helps reduce stress and can help fight off cognitive decline. So, next time you’re thinking about developing healthier habits, think about visiting a library — a place where you can keep both your body and mind in shape.
