We are not talking about what you eat here. I’m talking about how. Those people are out there that forget to eat for a whole day. Food is not their focus, not their reason for living, and not the least the one thing they plan out every morning. Thin eaters are living their lives and eating to live. Fat eaters are eating their lives and living to eat. Often, those meals are not as satisfying as you would think. Continue reading “Are You a Thin Eater or a Fat Eater?”
Disclaimer: I am not a trained medical person of any kind. I am a person struggling with my own weight and health issues. I like to research subjects and post about them once per month. As writers tend to sit and type or write longhand most of their day, I like to look at things from the point of view of ways to stay healthy while writing. Continue reading “Antioxidents”
Personally, I never seem to have positive things to say about my own weight loss. I try things, I walk every day and avoid things that are “bad” for me. Mostly, nothing changes. I firmly believe that there is something I can do easily to improve my health and weight. That’s the key to my choices. I must have chocolate. I must have ice cream. I must have coffee.

The Universe seems to hate people who have weight problems. Whether your ancestors came from cold regions where keeping extra weight on meant you would live through the winter or from extremely hot regions where you walked and danced and hunted daily so fat never had a chance, here we all are in the modern world and those genes are about to kill us all. But cheer up! Here are some fun things to keep you healthier.
This time last week, I worried about getting a short story finished and submitted, cleaning the house for a party, and doing better by my birds. Then, Friday night, I started seeing a flash of light in my left eye when I blinked. I expected it to go away, but so far it’s still with me. I posted about it on my personal page on Facebook and got reactions from panic (Retina Damage!) to calm and wise (Don’t worry too much but do get it checked out). Continue reading “Life Changes”
This flu season has been one of the worst in memory with a higher death rate than we have come to expect in modern medical times. Everyone, pretty much, has had the flu or a cold that won’t go away. Some people got their flu shots and still got sick. I think we are the lucky ones because having the flu shot probably made the case of flu we suffered much less dangerous than if we hadn’t been inoculated.

Recently I had a scare regarding my husband’s health. Fortunately, it had to do with something that is easily regulated with medication. Unfortunately, medication almost always comes with side effects. The best course of action is to stay healthy through diet and exercise. Dropping 20 pounds can eliminate hypertension and save your kidneys. Losing more weight can reverse symptoms of diabetes. Exercise to improve muscle mass can keep you looking young and living longer with a good quality of life. Continue reading “Dietary Approaches”
