Do YOU do the 5210?

The 5210 just may be the key to a healthy, HAPPY family!  It’s 4 simple things that you and your FAMILY can do to either get healthy or STAY HEALTHY. 

Here’s how you can 5210 every day:

  • 5 fruits and vegetables
  • No more than 2 hours sitting in front of the TV or playing video games
  • At least 1 hour total of physical activity
  • 0 drinks with sugar.  Focus on water and low-fat or fat-free milk

But don’t stress!  You certainly don’t have to tray all of these TODAY.  In fact, that would be the best way to fail.  Pick one and focus on it for a month. 

For example, start with giving up drinks with calories.  Work GRADUALLY.  Start with no caloric drinks at home for a week.  Then lose those sodas you have at work or at school.  SWITCH to unsweetened iced tea or carbonated water with a squeeze of lemon or lime (I couldn’t live without my Soda Stream!)   SLOWLY over the next three months get rid of all sugary drinks (including fruit juice and sports drinks).  Then take a couple of weeks to make these changes a HABIT before moving on to the next part of the 5210.
