It is truly a sad state of affairs when the truth causes a controversy like this. The State of Georgia has taken the bold step of making some videos stating the truth about childhood obesity. The truth, it’s no fun being overweight.
But what is happening? People are complaining about the videos! Yup, drawing attention to the problem is considered politically incorrect. No solutions offered is the cry.
If it were easy, and solutions were just a matter of snapping your fingers, no one would be over-weight. but it does take work and it does take dedication AND IT TAKES EDUCATION. Read More …
When it comes to our health, we like to think that we are in control. And if we are not in control, a quick visit to our family doctor will put it back into our control. Once person I was working with recently told me, completely serious when he said this, I’m in great health! When I asked him if he were on any medications, he then listed one drug after the other. He was on a drug for his high cholesterol. “But as long as I take the drug, I’m just fine”, he said. And then he told me about the drug he was taking for his high blood pressure. And the drug he was taking for his blood sugar. And that his diet was working well, that he had lost 5 pounds over the last 3 months (he weights almost 300 pounds). He seriously thought he was in great health, that he had everything under control.
Makes me wonder how many other people think that they …
As we get into our 40′s and older, our bodies just don’t seem to keep up like they used to. In fact, we start going downhill even in our 30′s. We just
start to realize it in our 40′s. Vision not quite as good as it once once, hearing not quite as sharp. And your verve, your zest for life isn’t quite what it used to be.
It seems that even though we are trying to do everything we can to stay young, we are aging. What’s going on?
Some us take multivitamins to stay healthy. And others run or jog religiously, all to stay young. But it doesn’t work. Arthritis, mood changes, loss of libido and even depression

Summer is great! You go outside, meet with some friends in an outdoor café,
go to the cottage, enjoy the campfire or maybe fly away to great destination. It
is a time that conveys to a relaxed attitude.
This relaxed attitude unfortunately shows up in what we eat and what we
accomplish… often we indulge in a bit too much of the wrong food or wine and the
dreams and goals that we had set for ourselves have been slowly pushed back and… forgotten.
It is good to let go for a short time but that is the key… a short time.
Summer is quickly moving on, it is time to re-group.
TheGlobe and Mail just released a story about obesity. And just when I thought we were “beating a dead horse” in trying to sound the alarm bells about this problem. Turns out that in Ontario, 75% of adults are overweight and we are closing in on the Americans for the world obesity record! Yikes!
Simple things, such as exercise are suggested to start to combat this. And of course there is diet. Perhaps we should have a special tax on all things
“Dairy Queen” just like we do with cigarettes. Because, bottom line, we are all going to have to pay the bill for this epidemic. Sooner or later, the health
costs will go out of site as our population enlarges.

The next stage once we begin to learn is that we realize that we don’t know, or to put it another way, “We know that we don’t know”.
And then comes learning and we get it. We know ….
Do you realize that before 1940 the entire world eat nothing but organic food! It is true because it wasn’t until the mid-1940′s that the world began using all the wonderful new herbicides, insecticides and fertilizers that gave us the abundant food we have today. And ad to that the latest in …
The other day, I was given a special "gluten free" brownie mix. And so we
made a batch. Oh they looked good. And they tasted even better.
Now I should know better, but I just went …

We all know that as we age our metabolism slows down. We all know that with age we start to sag. Muscles grow weaker, we get “granny wings”, and then comes that dimpling on our legs.
But what does it take to motivate one to …
