Fast FoodResearchers said findings suggest that fast food, as it is presently consumed, cannot be considered part of a healthy lifestyle. The huge portion sizes and high-caloric density of most fast foods were likely the primary cause of the obesity link, they said. One obesity expert commented that, although the study's conclusions are likely true, fast food restaurants are simply responding to society's desire for quick, inexpensive food. He said informing consumers on food quality and the health effects of fast food is one of the key improvements that needs to be made.Lancet January 1, 2005;365(9453):36-42

Cook in Large Batches
Cooking large batches will assure that you have some left over for the next day. Almost anything you make can be stored (in glass containers) overnight and eaten as another meal the next day. Leftovers from dinner can even be eaten for breakfast and in fact are likely to be a healthier choice than the typical American breakfast of cereal, toast, pancakes, bagels or doughnuts. Crockpot
Eat at Least One-Third of Your Food Raw
There are valuable and sensitive micronutrients that are damaged when you heat foods. Cooking and processing food can destroy these micronutrients by altering their shape and chemical composition. Regular vegetable juicing will easily help you reach this goal of one-third raw food in your diet but you may need to set aside some time to juice regularly.However, there are plenty of foods that can be eaten raw while on the go and that save you the time of cooking. Raw vegetables, raw seeds, raw nuts and raw dairy all fit into this category.You can also eat raw eggs. Raw, whole, organic eggs are a phenomenally inexpensive and incredible source of high-quality nutrients that many of us are deficient in, especially high-quality protein and fat. They are also one of the quickest foods to eat if you are short on time.
Prepare Your Lunch the Night Before
Morning can be a very hectic time of day and one way to cut down on things to do in the morning is to prepare your lunch the night before. This will also reduce the risk that you will neglect to prepare a lunch altogether and then decide to pick up some unhealthy junk food later in the day. It is much easier to eat healthy if you can grab your ready-made lunch from the refrigerator as you head out the door.
Eat Only When Youre Hungry
The worst thing you can do is to go out and grab some fast food and eat it simply because its time for lunch. Chances are your body can use the break from digestion and the junk food you would be tempted to get while on the run will only make you tired and sluggish.In fact, occasional fasting is a healthy practice for most people. Simply tell yourself you are making a choice to improve your health and live longer. Be careful not to get carried away with this practice, such as skipping breakfast everyday, as studies have found that people who skip breakfast are over four times as likely to be obese than people who eat something in the morning. If youre looking to save time in the morning or for another meal, but dont want to go without eating, opt for a quick superfood drink like a smoothie. This will give you almost all of the daily nutrients your body needs and is a much better alternative to any fast food.-Dr. Joseph Mercola
Include the Most Nutritious Foods You Can
When youre looking to save time, one strategy you may use is to combine two things into one, or "kill two birds with one stone," if you will. This mentality can be applied to many areas of your life and one of them is eating. If you think of food as serving a purpose--to give you the maximum amount of healthy nutrition possible--and then cater your food choices to that purpose, you will save time.Only eat the most healthy, most high-quality foods around and dont waste your time with inferior junk foods. Here is a list of Five Foods That Will Give You the Most Health "Bang" for Your Buck to get you started.

Rethink Your Priorities If you are healthy it is easy to take your body for granted. Those who are sick, though, realize just how important their health is. But you dont want to wait until your health goes away to realize that it is one of the most, if not the most, important aspects of life.If your car breaks down, you can have it fixed. If a relationship fails, there are almost always more to come, but if your body breaks down you will have a hard time experiencing life as most would like. This is why nutrition and health should be a top priority in your life.You must protect your body as you would any valuable possession, but the way to protect it isnt with insurance or a lock and key. You must protect it by being proactive. Prevent the disease before they begin, fortify your body with nutrients, exercise to keep strong, and of course get adjusted regularly. If you feel you dont have time for this sort of effort, then you may want to consider rethinking your priorities.
