Bolton Regional Councillor Good to Know

You Are What You Eat

You Are What You Eat

As a “junior senior” who wishes to live a long and healthy life the topic of health and fitness, and therefore longevity, has become one of my focuses. Recently, the Peel Medical Officer of Health delegated Caledon Council and during his presentation I learned that 49% of Caledon residents, and 63.5% of Bolton residents, over the age of 18, are either obese or overweight (have a BMI over 25). With an a virtual epidemic of diabetes looming on the horizon I found these statistics alarming.

So I was very intrigued by Bolton resident Melissa Piccinin’s latest educational offering. As a Natural Nutritional Coach and Practitioner Melissa has decided to hold a local (Bolton) Grocery Store Tour that includes guidance on how to read confusing nutritional labels, how navigate recommended dietary restrictions, and how to make the best food choices for you and your family. A great opportunity I’d say! Let her know right away if you want to attend, space is limited to 15.
