Healthy Eating Doesn't Have to be a Chore - It's All About Striking a Balance and Eating Mindfully

Healthy Eating Doesn't Have to be a Chore - It's All About Striking a Balance and Eating Mindfully


According to Dr. Michelle May, physicians and healthcare professionals do not like to be sold on anything, be it pharma or food. However, as a healthcare professional by trade, having spent years as a family physician before starting an organization known as Am I Hungry - Mindful Eating Programs and Training, Dr. May speaks the language of physicians and uses her knowledge and abilities to spread her message of a non-diet approach to food. The Oklahoma Beef Council recently sponsored Dr. May’s presentation at the Oklahoma Academy of Family Physicians annual meeting, where she spoke with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about her ideas on healthy eating habits.


“The simplest principles of nutrition are balance, variety and moderation,” May outlined. “When people keep those very simple principles in mind, no food is forbidden and certainly beef is going to provide all kinds of nutrients and iron and protein that are essential for a healthy, balanced diet.”


May says that there is a constant debate going on, working like a pendulum, swinging back and forth between what food products are best for getting the most nutritional value. Dairy for instance has always been a point of contention - which is better, whole milk or skim, real butter or margarine? At the end of the day, though, May says none of that matters. What does, is finding a way to strike that balance of the aforementioned principles in your daily eating habits.


“Nutrition information seems to be a moving target,” she said. “Our patients are confused; the public at large is confused. When a confused mind tries to go to the grocery store or make decisions about what to feed their family, they become very conflicted and that’s not a healthy way to approach food.”


For more of Dr. May’s advice on eating healthy from a practical, common sense approach, listen to her full interview with Ron Hays, on today’s Beef Buzz.
