Health and Wellness Advice

“FAT CHANCE” by Dr. Robert H. Lustig, M.D.

Dr. Lustig reviews the biochemical and hormonal milieu of obesity and “the metabolic syndrome”. He gives dietary recommendations, as well as social, community, and political ideas, for stopping children’s trajectory into illness, disability and premature death, both during childhood and their future into adulthood. This is a sequel to the previous two articles, which focused more on the societal, economic, and political forces driving the obesity epidemic, and the changes needed to stop it. My review of this book focuses now more on the personal aspects, the physiology, biochemistry and endocrinology of the problem. It may sound complicated and I will try to make it as clear as possible. It is important to understand his explanation of this situation, because it is the basis for exploding the myth that “it is their own fault because they eat too many calories and don’t exercise enough.”

Not all pumpkins are created equal and work well in cooking and baking, so here is a guide to help you pick and purchase the right ones.

"How To Deal With Negative People"

Nobody likes a negative person. Listening to complaints from someone with a pessimistic, mud-slinging, doom and gloom attitude can drain your energy, push your patience to the limit, and impact your mental and physical health.

If someone who's close to you is consistently negative, you'll want to do something to help them change their attitude. That's because you can see what they can't: that their comments and actions are negatively impacting their career and hurting their interpersonal relationships.
