I do like nuts, but find that it's really easy to eat a lot of them, so I consume them when they are part of a recipe or a dish. One of the best inventions of all time is PB2, because now we can have peanut butter more often!! Most people eat too much fat, thus we recommend limiting avocadoes, nuts, nut butter and other high-fat foods, and of course recommend getting oil out of the diet.

I have always been a short sleeper - which means I have lots of waking hours to get things done. There is no set amount of sleep needed - "getting enough sleep" means enough for you based on your needs - some people are short sleepers, some are long sleepers, and some are medium sleepers.

Some of you ask a lot of questions about my life such as what do I eat? How do I get so many things done? What do I do for fun? I don't mind that you do, and I'm happy to share. I post food journals on this blog once in a while and I'm going to do that more often since you tell me it's helpful. As for how I spend my time, it varies form day to day, but here's what I did yesterday (Monday Feb 11 2019): 4:45AM wake up - with some assistance from my cat,... Continue reading

Just read Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel I don't normally read science fiction but this was a selection for my book club. One of the reasons I love belonging to a book club is that it causes me to read books I would never choose on my own. The book is about the few humans left on earth after a pandemic kills off almost the entire population. The electric grid collapses, there is no more media or television, or gasoline to fuel cars, no one to produce food, etc. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The... Continue reading

I do not know what you are talking about. We do not select members or clients based on religious beliefs. That is not what this article is about at all.
I have been recommedning paper planners for a very long time. It is much easier to plan and manage time, particlrly if you use a default scheduling system and block out times so that activities can be grouped by type. Sometimes new is not better - people who are typing appoitments into their phones are often choosing times that are available to schedule things, but not necessarily the best times to do so. This morning I was pleased to see an article in the New York Times which stated that the paper planner has now become fashionable. Perhaps now people... Continue reading

For those of you who are curious - here's what I ate yesterday: Breakfast - always the same - Wellness Forum Health smoothie (yum, can't start the day without it!), 2 pieces of Ezekiel bread toast with fat-free hummus. Big breakfast but then this is meant to last until after morning exercise (hot yoga yesterday in our fabulous hot room!) Lunch at 11 - BIG salad - think salad for 6 but I ate all of it - and a big dinner plate of baked potato slices (from batch cooking on the weekend). A Gold Rush apple for dessert. Mid...

There are few series I watch on TV. I'm not a "TV snob" - there are many good things to watch, like Book TV on the weekends, which is how I find out about non-fiction books to read. But once in a while something catches and holds my attention - in this case for six years! The last episode of the entire series The Americans just aired a week ago, and I'm still thinking about it - the series and the last episode. I'm planning to watch the entire series again, and I NEVER have done this before. It's based... Continue reading

I know I should post more often - I receive requests from people asking me for more book recomendations regularly. This year I've been busy writing a book, which will be released this summer, along with a film called Diet Fiction. I just finished it a week or so ago. But I still have had time to read - my job involves reading, and recreational reading is the way that I relax. So here's an updated list of what I've been reading: Dreamland by Sam Quinones. It's about the opiate epidemic, and how a major drug company (Purdue Pharma) paved... Continue reading

Update on HHS Religious Exemptions Concerning Vaccines Pamela A. Popper Wellness Forum Health A couple of weeks ago I reported that an Executive Order issued by President Donald Trump called for the establishment of a new rule by the Health and Human Services Department protecting the rights of healthcare workers to decline to participate in any healthcare process or procedure based to their conscience or religious beliefs. HHS published its proposed rules which now includes specific language concerning vaccines. Not only are healthcare workers covered, but the requirement to receive vaccinations as a condition of education is also covered under... Continue reading

Those of you who follow me know I read a wide variety of things ranging from "brain candy" to medical textbooks. I'll share a little of all of this with you and then hopefully update more often during 2018. It seems that there is never enough time to get to all of the things I want to do. Let's start with brain candy - the books I've read just for fun: Origin by Dan Brown is a quick page-turning read. I think it took me only 2 days to read this book. It's the usual Dan Brown story line -... Continue reading
