ALBANY, N.Y. - For years, Mel Williams rarely ate fruit and vegetables " unless it came out of a can. Fresh produce was too expensive or too far away until the state-funded “Veggie Mobile” started bringing the fruits and vegetables to him at a lower price.

"I’m a diabetic and I have problems with my heart,” the 66-year-old said. “The canned stuff has so much sodium in it. So now with the fresh fruit, it’s less sugar and carbohydrates and stuff.”

Williams is one of millions of Americans living in a “food desert,” urban or rural areas unserved by a big grocery chain that can serve up fresh foods at lower costs. He’s in Troy, a former industrial city about 10 miles from New York’s capital.

With the rapidly climbing cost of food and fuel, states and nonprofit groups are finding ways to get healthy food to these underserved areas.

  When the shelves are bare where can you turn?

It's a bleak picture isn't it? The price of gas is affecting the price and availablity of fresh fruits and vegetables--the very things we MUST have in our diets if we are to live as optimally healthful as possible and prevent sickness as disease. This is a very real crisis, we have to have fruits and vegetables and the nutrients in them but for many people that is becomming increasingly more difficult.

The above story points out just how difficult it is getting to obtain fruits and vegetables and that many communities are having to opt for delivery in "ice cream" trucks.

If you are having trouble getting these important foods, consider joining or forming a co-op, look into companies that ship fresh fruits and veggies to your door...

Do whatever it takes to ensure you are getting these important nutrients. Especially those of us on a "diet" don't scrimp on these! You need the proper nutrition to lose weight properly and KEEP it off.

ONE great source to ensure proper nutrition is protein coupled with all of the days nutrition in easy to make, tasty and inexpensive shakes, bars, soups, pudding and oatmeal via the Diet.com/TSFL Medifast program.
