This is a diet for people who are trying to lose weight or who want to eat for better health, reports Stevenson. To make this diet work for you, you simply get this information, learn it and then apply it to your life. The blueprint will take you by the hand and help you overcome your weight loss struggles quickly, for good. You will likely be amazed at how your current diet can be tweaked for instant results.

Seafood Nutrition Partnership Teams With NutriSavings to Incentivize Healthy Eating

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) April 23, 2015

Amid an ongoing epidemic of heart disease and other preventable illnesses in the United States, the public health sector has long struggled to find ways to promote and incentivize healthy diets. In response, the nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership has announced its partnership with a unique online platform that drives healthier eating through the encouragement of seafood consumption: NutriSavings.

NutriSavings works with health insurers and employers to motivate wellness in the workplace, specifically through healthy grocery shopping. Depending on an employers incentives, employees can earn cash-back rewards for purchasing healthy food products at participating supermarket retailers, while evaluating their shopping behavior with a robust scoring system that ranks the nutritional quality of food items. Seafood Nutrition Partnership is providing NutriSavings with information about the health benefits of seafood and tips to help consumers identify a variety of fish and shellfish options at the grocery store, in order to inspire healthier choices and nutrition understanding surrounding seafood.

By collaborating with NutriSavings program that offers rewards for healthy seafood purchases, the Seafood Nutrition Partnership hopes to remind consumers not only about the essential heart and brain health benefits of seafood, but about how healthier eating helps families economically in the long run.

When people are healthy, everyonefamilies, employers, health insurers, tax payerssaves money, said Linda Cornish, executive director of Seafood Nutrition Partnership.
