Just wanted to share really exciting news!

I was  featured in General Mills Magazine “Que Rica Vida” this last September to celebrate theHispanic heritage month.  “Que Rica Vida” has just published my article in English and Spanish “To Your Health”

What am I focusing in this article?

Our month has arrived! It’s Hispanic Heritage Month, and the many festivities and celebrations of our culture can captivate us with their delicious food and delicias, and can allow us to forget about the importance of caring for ourselves. Special occasions come and go, but taking good care of our health should be a priority every day.

The good news is that you can improve your health by making a change in your lifestyle and taking care of your daily health. Plus, it’s not that hard and if you try, you can do it!

If you’re wondering what changes you should carry out in your daily life to help you stay healthy, this is what I recommend.

Latino Adults, Obesity and Prevention

As a side  note The obesity rate among Latino adults and children is directly related to diet and lack of exercise. Remember that if you are overweight or obese, you have a greater risk of developing type 2 Diabetes and heart disease.

My book Super Body, Super Brain focuses in Mens sana in corpore sano (healthy mind in healthy body). The Latino community is living moments of spectacular growth but facing at the same time with a responsibility to improve the quality of life for our entire family. According to new statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 78 million adults and nearly 13 million children aged 2-19 were considered obese in 2009-10. The latest report shows that 39.1 percent of Hispanic adults are considered obese
If we neglect our way of eating and exercise have increased risk of cardiovascular diseases that plague our community as Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity. The rate of obesity among Hispanic adults and children is largely due to diet and lack of exercise.
With obesity linked to hypertension, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease, we can all improve our health through a change in lifestyle – that is, a healthy diet and physical activity scheduled – is not only advisable, but essential for Hispanics across the country.

That is why I was really honored to write this article for General Mills Magazine Que Rica Vida  that is available now
