Resolve to be healthier in 2010 and save money on insurance

Getting healthy - and having lower health insurance bills - doesn't have to be difficult or pricey

Many people - eager to improve their well-being or save money on health insurance - have health-related resolutions for the New Year.

Getting fit and saving money is easy, diagnostic test company LipoScience says. One investment worth making for a health-conscious individual is a pedometer: "Physical exercise can make an enormous difference in your ability to fight disease," Raleigh, North Carolina healthcare practitioner Dr. William C. Cromwell says. Walking can be a good start for those unaccustomed to physical activity, and pedometers incentivize walking for many people.

Another worthwhile investment is a magnifying glass for reading nutrition labels. Many foods are loaded with fat and calories, and the only way to know a food's content is to read the label. Books like "Eat This, Not That" are a good way to make dining out healthier.

Perhaps the best way to preserve one's health and save money on insurance is to quit smoking. Nonsmokers pay less for insurance, and smoking, as Dr. Cromwell says, is "the leading preventable cause of death."
