Go Red Corporate Challenge Update

April 18, 2013

With the Go Red Corporate Challenge entering its final weeks, we wanted to catch up with some of our First Source staff members who have been setting healthy eating habits, exercising more, and tracking their results. Today, we’re checking in with Michael Orsomarso about what he’s learned.

goredMike“So far the Challenge has taught me a lot about my personal eating/health habits.  While I thought I was eating healthy for a long time prior to beginning the Challenge, I learned that my mentality of what exactly “healthy” meant was a little skewed.  I have since changed my eating habits to incorporate more natural and truly healthy foods instead of what I was eating before:  Greek Yogurt with Kashi vs. Regular Lowfat Yogurt with Special K, baby spinach and peppers with eggs vs. turkey bacon with eggs, etc.  While whole wheat bread may be good for you, there are better alternatives and differences from one brand to another, such as the amount of sugar in the loaf.  One brand of “whole wheat” bread may have more added sugar and high fructose corn syrup than another.  I compare labels and make sure I know what most of the ingredients are, and watch for ones that I can’t even pronounce.  Overall, the Challenge so far has definitely forced me to take a double-look at my eating habits and the foods that I eat.  This is definitely something and a standard that I will hold myself to even after the Challenge has officially ended.”
