Rethink your drink. Find healthier drinks that quench your thirst. According to a University of North Carolina study, Americans drink 192 gallons of liquid a year, or 2 liters a day. For this summer, why not take the opportunity to make a healthy change to "water only" as your preferred beverage?

Since close to 2/3s of Americans are overweight, cutting the liquid caloric intake can make such a difference to our waistlines. For summer reading, practice your reading skills with food labels, and be surprised by how little we know about the chemicals we are ingesting from what we eat and drink.

What's nutraceuticals? "Dietary supplements delivering concentrations of a presumed bioactive agent derived from food sources, but in a nonfood matrix at concentrations far higher than could feasibly be obtained from the source food, and used for specific health-enhancing effects." (From Goldman, E. "Endocrinologists Tackle Nutraceutical Guidelines" Internal Medicine NewsJune 13, 2000, p. 49)
