Vitalitys Dr. Dugas Comments on Maintaining Health Balance
Amir Khan, Health + Wellness reporter at U.S. News & World Report, offered an interesting take this week on generational wellness: The Hypocritical Diet of the Hipster.
Dr. Jonathan Dugas was able to provide insight for this piece and offer that healthy habits are not a license for overindulging in unhealthy food Healthy habits are great, but when your unhealthy habits are as bad as your others are good, you can run into a problem, says Jonathan Dugas, a kinesiologist and director of clinical development at The Vitality Group, a company that designs wellness programs for employers. While the hipster diet is high in fruits and vegetables, its also high in bacon. Bacon is high in saturated fat, which raises their risk for heart disease, he says. Its also high in calories, which makes it dangerous to indulge in frequently.
At the end of the day, maintaining balance is key.
