Health & Safety THE PERKINS JOURN.,lIL;':Thursday, January 7, 2010 - A5 Lose weight, fight hunger (Oklahoma City) Two of the biggest problems faced by Oklahomans today are obesity and hunger. To combat these issues, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, through Feed- ing America , has part- nered with NBC's The Biggest Loser once again to support the Pound For Pound Challenge, which will help Oklahomans lose weight and feed the com- munity in need. Danny Cahill, winner of The Biggest Loser, Season 8 and Oklahoma resident, lost a record-breaking 239 pounds on the show. "My weight loss has changed my life in many ways; I no longer live in fear of dying," said Cahill. "I can be a better father and husband, as well as friend. I was given a second chance by The Biggest Loser, so I find it important to give others a second chance by inspiring and motivat- ing them to change their lives." As a member of the Regional Food Bank's Celebrity Council, Cahill is working to motivate others to lose weight and help their local food banks by sign- ing up for the Challenge atPFPChallenge.com. For every pound pledged and lost, General Mills will donate 14 cents to Feeding America, who will then distribute the donations to Food Banks across the country, including the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Participants can also see how-our state ranks on the interactive map of the United States on the Pound For Pound Challenge website. Oklahomans are encour- aged to watch The Biggest Loser every Tuesday at 7 p.m. CST on NBC and participate in the Pound for Pound challenge by signing up atPFPChallenge.com. More than 3.5 million pounds were pledged in last year's Pound for Pound Challenge. Last year, Pound for Pound Challenge partici- pants raised $3,700 for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. "One in five children in our state struggle with hunger every day," said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. "This is simply not accept- able. Through the Pound for Pound Challenge, Okla- homans can join together to make a positive change in their own lives - and the lives of hungry children. We thank The Biggest Loser, General Mills, and Feeding America for help- ing to make Oklahoma a healthier place to live."

Exercise more. Sound familiar? If you've made some or all of these popular New Year's resolu- tions in the past, you prob- ably ended up like the vast majority of Americans, who fail to make good on their January 1 pledges. "When it comes to New Year's resolutions, or any goals we set out, the key is in the specifics," said Okla- homa Medical Research is your aim, he recommends trying to map out small, tangible, one-day-at-a-time goals. "Instead of a vague reso- lution like 'get in better shape this year,' reduce it to a concrete plan," he said. "Pledge to exercise three times a week for at least 30 minutes." To improve your diet, resolve to eat at least one brightly colored vegetable at lunch and dinner each day. "Generally, the brighter the color, the more nutrients and antioxidants vegetables contain," he said. That means carrots and sweet potatoes for orange. Beets and tomatoes for red. Broccoli and spinach for green. "Not only will this Foundation President Ste- phen Prescott, M.D. "If you want to lose weight, you can't just say, 'I want to lose weight.'"

A great way to improve your health, said Prescott, is to get more sleep. "Adults who don't get enough sleep are at higher risk for heart attack, stroke and obesity than those who are well rested. So a simple resolu- tion for an earlier bedtime is the first step toward better health." He suggests picking a wake-up time, then working back at least seven hours. "That means if you want to get up at 6:00 a.m., you need to be asleep by 11:00 p.m. And to be asleep by 11:00 p.m., you probably should olutions. "You have only a finite amount of willpower, so don't stretch yourself too thin." Even making and keeping a single resolution is a big step.
