Make Healthy Choices Easy with the “Unwise, Better, Best” Jingle

For most of you, the phrase “unwise, better, best” is not new but if there is ever a time to apply it, it is during the holidays. For many, it is unrealistic to attempt to stay on an aggressive low calorie plan in the midst of travel and holiday parties. This is a time to give yourself a little more flexibility than usual. If you have a treat, make sure you eat it slowly and mindfully and savor every last bite. When out to dinner, at a cocktail party or looking over the choices available at the holiday buffet, categorize the options into “unwise, better or best.” The goal is make better choices than you may have made in the past; not necessarily the best, but consistently better. To help you remember the phrase, and apply it, Hilton Head Health has put it on refrigerator magnets and t-shirts. Now, we have one more way to help make this phrase stick in your mind.

Those of you who have had the pleasure of meeting and working with David Chesworth is also a musician and a song writer and has written a little ditty about the “unwise, better, best” dieting principle.

It is very catchy and in fact hard to get out of your head once you hear it. David is not only a song writer, but also a video director. So along with Greg Moore (video producer) they have produced H3’s very first music video, and here it is. Enjoy it and let us know what you think.

Have a very happy, healthy holiday season.

Unwise Better Best

When Life gets ya down

Because ya gained a few pounds

And ya ask yourself…

What should I do?…

You’ve tried all kinds

Of diets that worked for some time

But in the end…

ya don’t have a clue


If only there were somethin’ easy

Like a word, a mantra, or a phrase

to remind ya when you’re feelin’ lazy

You will succeed, when I say….


Unwiiiiise    betterrrrrr    best

Just make good choices

And life will take care of the rest

Unwise better best

Just make good choices

And life will take care of the rest
