Your weight is not the real problem

Your weight is not the real problem With this article, I’m sending up a warning flare that some will call “a rant”. Your weight is not even really the problem with your weight.

Your weight is the byproduct of your food choices. Learn to make better food choices, and your body will find … Continue reading

What Does Food Taste Like

Tiny Steps for Big Changes – How to Change Your Eating Habits

tiny steps for big changes

Tiny Steps for Big Changes When I changed how I eat more than six years ago, I made huge sweeping changes very quickly.  I did it because my husband was on a statin drug that was not so slowly killing him.  By the way, if you take a statin, I suggest you review the possible side effects and be aware of rising glucose levels leading to Type 2 diabetes, memory loss, cataracts and so much more….but I digress.  I did … Continue reading
