The Adams County Record Nutrition &amp; You An American Epidemic - Part III ' What can we do about it? ' In the previous articles , I discussed the obesity epidemic in America and some of the physiological reasons for this epidemic. Currently, there are governmental programs trying to curb the obesity epidemic, such as WE CAN, a program designed to help parents and children make proper nutrition choices and incorporate exercise in their lives. To find out about this program contact Linda Rogers- Bailey at Adams County Health Center. The government programs are great tools for curbing the obesity epidemic, but real change is going to come from you and me. Each of us needs to consciously make proper nutrition choices and exercise. Eat balanced meals. Consider the "My Plate" method. Get a 9" plate and quarter it. One quarter is for lean protein, one quarter is for grains or starchy Garden Comer vegetables, and the other half of the plate is for non-starchy vegetables and leafy greens. Limit saturated and poly saturated fats such as butter and margarine, limit sugary foods and drinks. Limit or eliminate highly processed foods such as boxed, bagged or container foods off the grocery shelf. Instead of a boxed rice side dish, try making some brown rice and season it yourselt!. You'll be getting a lot more "bang  for your nutritional buck that way. Boxed or bagged food generally has had most of the nutritional value processed out of it; so what you are paying for ts a pretty box and advertisements, not nutrition. Also, processed foods are made with too much salt, sugar' and chemicals, none of which count as nutrition. Get up" and movel Our society as a whole is too sedentary; we all need to Wednesday, February 22, 2012 Page 7 Spring is Coming (Any Day Now) tudents 15arn State by Linda Taylor, Nutritionist, ACHC t00FA Degre,e exercise more than we do. Exercise increases the metabolism so we'll be burning calories even after the exercise is over. Exercise also decreases stress, a major contributor to weight gain. Other benefits are better sleep, increased strength, increased bone density and the list goes on! The bottom line is we each have the ability to control our instincts to over eat. Unlike other creatures, we can choose what we eat and how much we eat. We can choose good nutrition for our children; we can che to exercise for an hod every day; we can limit how much time our children spend in front of the TV or computer. Each of us can choose to eat healthy foods and exercise. The alternative to these choices is what we see today, an obesity epidemic. by Myrna Weikal mweikal@mtecom, net 355-5829 It's a little muddy but in a more deliberate them.

" ouncil nquers I. } Meack}ws by Daniel Cameron The Council Lumberjacks prevailed in Thursday night's game against the Meadows Valley Mountaineers in a District Play-in Game. The beginning of the first quarter suggested that the game was going to be a close one, with a score within 2, but the end of the half proved otherwise as the Lumberjacks went into the locker room ahead with a score of 36-16. The Mountaineers didn't do badly in the 3rd quarter, but Council showed precise execution as they jumped up to a 29-point lead with a score of 60-31 before the 4th quarter. New Meadows never stopped fighting as they attempted a comeback that brought them up to a score of 67-56 before the end of the game. The impact players of the game were Council's Jeb Balderson with a total of 15 points for the night, and New Meadows' Zach Siegal with a total of 24 points. The next game for the Lumberjacks is Saturday, February 18th at 7:30 p.m. in McCall against the Salmon River Savages.
