Vanguard Health Chicago to phase out sugary beverages
Vanguard Health Chicago said its four hospitals will phase out sugary beverages, including soda and sports drinks, and eventually remove diet beverages, sweetened juices and drinks that contain more than about a teaspoon of sugar per 12 ounces. "This really fit in with our mission to help people achieve health for life," said MacNeal Hospital executive Scott Steiner, whose facility also has removed deep fryers, changed vending-machine food and added more nutritious offerings in its cafeteria.

N.Y. district could lift ban on high-fructose corn syrup
A New York school district has decided to conduct further research on whether to loosen a restriction on the sale of food that contains sweeteners, including high-fructose corn syrup. The proposed change would allow students who cannot pay for a school meal to be served a peanut butter and jelly sandwich -- and the jelly contains high-fructose corn syrup. However, critics say weakening the district's current nutrition policy goes against its focus on student wellness.

We realized that the amount of weight you drop isn't the endgame. It's about how good you feel about yourself, about making healthier choices. That's the reward.
