The month of May ushers in plans for family vacations, increased time outdoors and even busier calendars filled with activities. As schedules heat up for summer, the pistachio industry and LIVESTRONG.COM, a destination for all-things food, fitness and healthy living, are urging Americans to still make health a priority while packing in the action.
“All the latest research shows that extreme – or fad – diets don’t work in the long term even if you’re trying to get into that favorite swimsuit or pair of shorts,” said Alyse Levine, MS, RD, ambassador for the pistachio industry and nutrition advisor for LIVESTRONG.COM. “It’s vital to have good habits all year long including finding fitness activities you actually enjoy, eating balanced meals and snacking on nutrient-rich foods – like pistachios – to get you through the day.”
