I want you to know upfront that I am going to share information with you that has been around for centuries but sorely neglected in our modern society and pharmaceutical industry.

Okay, I think most of you would agree that you  don’t nourish your body to the best of your ability on a daily basis, right?


I mean, you get so caught up in comfort, laziness, and the attitude “I am going to be all right. I just do fine. I look great. I know it all.

Newsflash: If your body isn’t where you want it to be, and if you are not feeling at ease with the clothes that you wear or what you see looking back at you in the mirror when naked, then you need to face the reality that you are not taking care of yourself.

The truth is out. Most people don’t succeed.

Last week’s blog entry was a bee sting to some of you. I mean, it hurt.

Unfortunately, for some it hurt so much to face facts. They didn’t like to be reminded that they needed to take care of their body. They discontinued their subscription.

I tell it like it is without the honey and sugar: My newsletters are all about motivation, advice, strategy, education and thorough, provocative information to help you in your quest for weight loss, youngevity, and longevity.

So, down to business again. Spring and summer are just around the corner. And soon the urge to trim and shape will be on the forefront; just when the winter coats are gone.

I’ll keep it short and sweet today. I’ll only ask you one question:

If you belong to a book club, are you looking for a new book and a memorable experience?

Is this missing at your book meeting?

You meet with your friends to discuss the latest book that you’ve all read.

The two measurements that I take: 1) Read More→

Once again, Thanksgiving was a feast. Each year, over a hundred thousand Americans overeat during the holiday time. The next day, food is the last thing that many think about. But then there are the leftovers. How about a little pie for breakfast? It is too good to go to waste. And the feast continues.

Weight loss is on many on our minds during this time. But the call to the dinner table wins out over the call to the gym. There we have a dilemma: Too stuffed to workout. Leftovers linger for days. And relaxation and catching up with friends and family is priority number one.
