As consumers age, many are concerned with maintaining their health. According to a new survey† by the International Food Information Council (IFIC), cardiovascular issues (46 percent), weight (32 percent) and healthy aging (20 percent) are among the top health concerns Americans have today.
Foods for Health
One of the most positive results of the IFIC survey is that consumers seem to value the health promoting benefits of food. The foods they look to most to improve or maintain their health include:
1) Fruits and Vegetables
2) Fish/Fish Oil
4) Whole Grains
5) Herbs and Spices
They also associate the following food components with health benefits:
Calcium (92%) for bone health
Vitamin D (90%) for bone health
B vitamins (86%) for overall well-being
Omega-3 fatty acids (85%) for heart health
Probiotics (81%) for digestive health
Fiber (79%) for digestive health.
Knowledge Does Not Equal Behavior
Unfortunately, despite being knowledgeable about the health benefits of the foods and food components listed above, most Americans still find it hard to incorporate them into their diets. The top barriers to eating healthier included:

Here is a simple formula to put the odds for success on your side. Let’s just call it the “Five P’s to Success,” with four obvious steps. The fifth and final part, being successful, carries its own set of challenges.
This is a detailed, logical, flexible, and workable description of the end priority or goal. After you read your completed plan, there should be no doubt about what you intend to accomplish. Your plan includes all the parts and pieces-everything you will want to do to succeed at your endeavor.
This is the systematic and measurable description of how you will execute your plan. These are the steps you must take to actually enact the plan. Remember to work to keep the process simple and practical. Make sure that the steps and your process are logical and build on each other-the completion of one part of the process leads directly into the next step. Also, make sure to have a specific way to measure both your progress and your final result.
This is where intention meets reality. How valuable is a good plan and process if you do not act on them? Performance means to get started. It means to continue when faced with obstacles. It means to try to do all you can to ensure your success. Performance is the daily doing of what must be done. Others can help you and encourage you. However, YOU must put in the time, energy, effort, and resources for your own success.
This is often the most difficult part. Persistence continues when your body and mind want to quit. Persistence is when, in the face of adversity, we refine our plan, adjust our process, and try again. Persistence is also continuing to work or serve when we begin to realize the success we want. We persist and make money instead of making a living. We build our empire, create our dream, and share our wealth.
I have received quizzical looks when I say that prosperity, or success, can be a challenge to watch out for. I have seen too many people get to the edge of success and pull back. Or, once successful, they begin to neglect the plan, process, performance, and persistence that got them there in the first place. Pulling back from success often has its roots in fear or a sense of being unworthy. If you experience hesitation at the door, examine it closely. Don’t ever hesitate to ask for help, if it lingers.
People who gain money, fame, or time from prosperity sometimes sabotage themselves. Instead of nurturing their success, they want to slow down and enjoy themselves. They begin to take more days off. They work shorter days. They spend money on unnecessary items. They have more interest in having others notice how successful they are than they have in building on that success. Watch for any signs of this in yourself. You’ve worked hard to be successful. Protect it, nurture it, and allow it to grow.
We can follow this 5-Ps approach in any part of our lives. Plan in detail, enact your plan with a systematic process, perform at a high level, and persist until and after you achieve your goals.
