If you look at all of the processed and fast foods we eat in our culture, it is no wonder we have such an increase on obesity in the last decade. Fresh foods = Healthy Foods.

I just finished reading the Joel Furhman's book, Eat to Live, and it's so refreshing to get the real truth about the foods we eat as Americans. I have been a vegetarian since 1992 (has is really been 18 years?) and only now do I realize that I've been going about it all wrong. I have at least 75 pounds of pregnancy weight to lose (although my "baby" just had her fifth birthday), debunking the myth that all vegetarians are slim (sorry, Tree). Before you start judging....let me assure you I eat lots of fruits, veggies and only whole grains; and rarely eat sweets. My downfall has been in the incorrect thinking that I had to eat large amounts of protein to be healthy. My inclusion of milk, cheese and eggs as protein sources ends today! Thank you, Dr. Furhman, for your revolutionary thinking.

I think Dr. Fuhrman is right on, we should be focusing on good health not avoiding illness. As long as we think or worry about eating to avoid something happening to us the fear precludes our enjoyment of our good health. Makes a lot of sense. Thanks for having him on.

I agree with others here. It is vital to help our children learn solid eating habits, they are after all our future.

Thank you for your tremendous supply of healthy food in a very clean, friendly store. I've made friends of staff all over the Gateway store. I've given hugs, complements, and smiles and have gotten excellent help and encouragement. Your prices for really good stuff, especially the 365 label, are generally competitive even with HEB. I think Sprouts is trying to outdo you, but they are certainly lacking in organic produce of the variety that you have. You still get the biggest portion of my grocery dollars each week. In addition, let me thank you for those specials of purchase a stated item and get three items for free. What a bargain! ---LaVerne Johnston

I wrestle with when and when not to battle with my kids about their eating habits. It is a fine line to steer them in a healthy direction, and to push them away from good choices.

I'll check with my local store to see if there is any support material for the stuff this guys is talking about. Specifics are important for me when making changes.

When I watched my weight, I became so depressed when I gained back weight I was loosing. I would fast or starve myself- feel good, then be bummed out when things turned around. Not good, it didn't work, and it certainly was not healthy. I feel much more balanced now that I just eat well.

My biggest problem isn't feeding my kids well, it is eating all the extra food they don't finish. With 3 kids I have gained 35 pounds and counting. Help!

To many fats, and salts can really mess a system up. I try to eat a majority of fresh foods and it really helps me.

I really have trouble with my kids. When they go to the grandparents, which is often, they come back craving sugar and fried food. I know this is an age old problem but it is still hard. We work really hard at home to keep them healthy.
