    Good Health is a Horse Race

    Good Health is a Horse Race

    Achieving a higher state of health is really not so difficult. We can all identify something in our life that could be modified to improve our health. Many of us might have defined a New Year’s Resolution that includes the reduction of a bad habit, or the introduction of a good habit. Whatever it is, I tend to recommend you don’t think in terms of “cold-turkey”, but instead, think in terms of “degrees”. Your odds are greater for long-term success if you set a path of modest steps instead of big leaps when you begin to make changes.

    The Pollyanna Nutritional Optimist

    The Pollyanna Nutritional Optimist

    To those who follow a Pollyanna diet, nutritional supplements are a silly waste of money. Someone who is Pollyannaish will believe proper nutrition can be achieved by eating the proper quantities of correctly balanced foods.

    Liquids can Ruin the Best Weight Loss Diet

    Eat in Harmony for Permanent Weight Loss

    Chronic “eaters” and “dieters” are, both, examples of people who are out of touch with their body’s food requirements. They either try not to eat when they are hungry, or they consume far beyond the necessary calories for survival. Both types of eating habits are detrimental to health and weight, and create a challenge for any weight-loss regimen.

    Why Alternate Day Dieting is Bad

    Why Alternate Day Dieting is Bad

    Remember the words of Mother Nature, “Don’t play with your metabolism at the dinner table.” Alternate Day Dieting is where you put your body in starvation mode one day, and then at a more normal calorie diet the next day.
