CINCINNATI: (Liz Bonis) If you are starting a shape up plan for fall, there are five foods you may want to include as part of that plan, according to a new survey.

Medical Reporter Liz Bonis tells us about it in today's Health Alert.

If you have resolved to get in shape this fall, a few things can make a difference... first start out walking, not running.

Regardless of temperatures, it can help your body ease into good health, ten minutes a day, and start adding minutes as you go.

Then this report also found you may benefit from picking up a few foods. Shape Magazine surveyed nutritionists and asked what foods may help you if you starting a new workout plan.

Whole grains, such as brown rice top the list.  They have complex carbohydrates for energy.  You may want to eat pineapple. It has bromelein, which may help ease soreness. Greek yogurt makes the list. The calcium helps your bones, and so does peanut butter, a great protein food, if you like to workout in the morning. Finally, grab some cherries, 19 of them work like natural aspirin. They work against soreness, if you are easing into a workout. These are a couple simple ideas as you step up the fall shape up plan.
