In today's world of high-stress, high-demand jobs, it can sometimes be difficult to remember the importance of practicing healthy habits while at work.   Whether you sit at a desk, work behind a counter or are on your feet all day, incorporating good nutrition and physical activity into your workday can make a big difference in your work performance, energy and stress level, as well as your overall health. Start your workday with breakfast. You'll replenish your body's blood sugar stores, which are needed for sustained mental work and physical activity throughout the day. You'll also stave off mid-morning hunger that may reduce your concentration.

When it comes to learning healthy, cell-supportive nutrition, it can seem really difficult to understand. There are so many books on the subject, it's a wonder we can agree on anything nutrition related. It doesn't need to be complicated, however, I've actually broken it down into three simple rules for nutrition mastery. Really? Really. I've had the opportunity to interview many of the leaders in the field of nutrition for my radio show, and I've learned that what we've been taught about nutrition since childhood has largely failed to improve our nation's health.

It is clear from its opening weekend that "Playing for Keeps" is one of the biggest bombs of the year, both critically and commercially. Review database Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 2-percent "Fresh" rating for its one positive review vs. 59 negative ones (and Leonard Maltin gives it only faint praise in his "positive" review). It has also flopped at the box office, opening in sixth place on a weekend when the top five films have all been out for at least three weeks. The film is almost as bad as its reputation.

We had long since given up eating at Chick-fil-A, but for a reason that had nothing to do with the current unpleasantness. Maybe a year ago, Chick-fil-A unleashed its corporate goons against a Vermont artist who, at the suggestion of a small-town farmer, had produced T-shirts proclaiming “Eat More Kale.” Chick-fil-A said this was an infringement on its “Eat mor chikin” ad campaign. It issued a nasty cease-and-desist letter to the entrepreneur, saying his T-shirts were “likely to cause confusion of the public and dilute the distinctiveness of Chick-fil-A's intellectual property.” Forget that this fellow's “Eat More Kale” shirts had been around for years, and I myself had an “Eat More Possum” bumper sticker on my Ford Econoline van a good 15 years before the phrase caught on in fast-food land.

The funniest thing about "Year One" is the title and you get that for free. It's sort of funny to imagine a year numbered so low that it can be spelled so easily. It's funnier to imagine the kind of New Year's celebration they might have had to bring in the Year Two. But "Year One" is so unfunny it can't even capitalize on a gag like this, one that the filmmakers practically set up for themselves. Instead, the movie chooses to focus on two dimwit hunter-gatherers played by Jack Black and Michael Cera.

If you've been reading this column for any length of time, you understand that eating is about 80 percent of achieving any fitness goal. This is especially true in regard to weight loss.  The formula for weight loss is pretty simple: burn a little more than you eat every day. See, I could have just charged you a consulting fee for that one statement.  But beyond that basic statement of fact, there are a few habits that many of my new clients...

A major reason why many people never achieve more than minor fitness success is they are trying to accomplish too many things at one time. Ask what their purpose is and most guys will say to get big, strong and ripped. Most women will say to get leaner, stronger and more toned. Too often we'll bounce from program to program, never really giving any of them a decent effort. The problem here is, however, if you are working with too many goals, you might not achieve any of them.  How do you make sure you are really training for results?

Eat right, your way, every day by building healthful meals. You can begin building a healthful meal by making half your plate fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are full of nutrients that help promote good health. Regularly choose red, orange and dark green vegetables. Add lean protein to your meal. Choose protein-rich foods such as lean beef and pork, chicken, turkey, beans or tofu. Eat beans, which are a natural source of fiber and protein. Twice a week, choose seafood as the protein on your plate.

Americans live in a food paradise. Food is generally plentiful, cheap and made to be convenient. And, despite the occasional food-poisoning event, the food supply is consistently safe to eat. Government food-safety regulations limit amounts of pesticides, microbial pathogens and other contaminants on produce and in manufactured products. Inspectors check on food producers, food manufacturers restaurants and others in the food chain. But researchers are examining whether Americans' food-safety vigilance has a downside.

The truth about healthy eating is that not all foods are created equal. When it comes to eating for fat-loss, this is especially true. One of the hidden properties of healthy eating that rarely gets much discussion in the mainstream press is the "thermic property" of foods. Yet, it is this very property which accounts for why not all foods are created equal. To sum up briefly, every individual has a resting metabolic rate. This is the rate at which your body burns calories in the absence of all other activities besides merely existing.

If eating smarter and healthier is one of your New Year's resolutions, try focusing on eating more whole grains.  Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel - the bran, germ and endosperm.  Eating whole-grain foods helps increase fiber consumption and reduction of some chronic diseases. Fiber creates a feeling of fullness with fewer calories, which can help curb your appetite. Check the Nutrition Facts label for fiber content of whole-grain foods. Good sources of fiber contain 10 to 19 percent of the Daily Value; excellent sources contain 20 percent or more.  The color of a food is not an indication that it is a whole-grain food.
