I know my post yesterday was a little long. Yup, sometimes I get carried away when I talk about the power of nutrition and how most of us are missing the boat. Hoping you read it all the way to the end..... cos what I said comes from the heart. I'm really saddened by and sick of seeing folks in misery from PREVENTABLE health situations. YOU can choose NOT to be a statistic.

And do you realize in order to turn the healthcare situation around in this country we all MUST choose to not be a statistic. Industry is not going to stop selling you BS. The solution starts with YOU and ME. Stop buying into the got-a-problem-pop-a-pill mentality. Pharmaceuticals don't create health.... nutrients create health. Stop buying into the pop-it-into-the-microwave mentality. Your body craves whole foods unadultered with chemicals, dyes etc. You can choose NOT to be a statistic by what you put into your body. Think about it, ok.

On the homefront..... I'm doing well with the Shrink It Weight Loss system. Being sure to get my 7 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Filling out my daily record helps me see my progress. Have to confess I was already taking VitaOne, Omega 3 and drinking Crave Energy though I must say filling out the daily record has improved my consistency 100%. In the notes section of the daily record I always note, I took my supplements and had my 7 servings of fruits and vegetables. (Note: Men = 9 servings of fruits and vegetables, Kids = 5 servings of fruits and vegetables). Does 7 servings sound like a lot to you? It's not. A serving of vegetables is approximately 1/2 cup.

If you buy the bags of veggies already cut up for you... (such as, Mann's Sunny Shores) there are five servings in a bag. Just don't microwave them! Eat them raw (you should be eating a % of your nutrition raw) or steam them yourself on top the stove. Microwaving decreases the nutrition! DON'T microwave. There's already less nutrients in our produce today than there used to be; don't lose more nutrients by microwaving.

I've been eating 3 meals and 3 snacks a day. You will find eating every 2-3 hrs you won't have the cravings you normally have. Eating every 2-3 hrs raises your metabolism! Include a little protein each time you eat. For instance, a good snack is apple slices with peanut butter. OF course, I use organic peanut butter not the regular commercial peanut butters which have added sugar. Try it, it's delicious! and so much better for you.

To Your Health and Happiness......
