Looking after your body through exercise and diet takes a lot of time and thought. For example, you’re going to be asking yourself to resist natural urges and force yourself to avoid things you actively enjoy. While that all might seem like a negative, the reality is they are huge positives. Being fit and healthy […]
We’d all like to be able to get our work done faster, earn more money, and move up the career ladder. But it turns out that our diet can hamper progress. You’ve heard the expression, “you are what you eat.” And it turns out that there might be a degree of truth in that, not […]
Turning on the oven is the last thing I want to do in the middle of summer. Are you with me? I want an easy, light, no-fuss bariatric diet lunch to pack for the office or even put on the table for a light dinner. Well…I found one. Bariatric Diet Lunch My Dill Chicken Salad […]
I don’t know about you but it is HOT HOT HOT where I live in Northern California. As you may remember from my interview, I live on a farm and temperatures consistently reach over 100 F and sometimes even 110 F. I am always looking for ways to stay cool. This year I am hoping […]
Research indicates that more than half of the people with weight loss goals use exercise as a means of attaining the success of their goals.

Consider that if we had built habits to lose […]
We’re all guilty of unhealthy habits. Even if you steer clear of junk food or cigarettes, there might be small aspects of your lifestyle that are contributing to a poor standard of health. You need to think of all the small things like forgetting to floss every day or being sedentary for too long at […]
You don’t need me to tell you that we’re in the midst of an obesity epidemic. Each year, the figures get worse. And the pain of it is, our diets aren’t the only cause for the problem.

Grains, starchy vegetables, sugar, and artificial sweeteners are not part of my bariatric diet! But they sure are central to a traditional Thanksgiving menu. So for many years I missed out on pumpkin pie, rolls, and tea breads. But nowadays I serve a sumptuous grain-free Thanksgiving. That’s because I learned about nut flours! Wonderful baked goods can be […]
