National Blueberry Month – a month to celebrate the blue gems

blueberriesCan you believe it’s July? It’s also National Blueberry Month. As a confessed and proud blueberry addict, I’m here to show you a couple of ways to celebrate. If you follow me you know I write about these little blue gems every year. (Blueberries – the blue jewel and Confessions of a blueberry addict—where I bought 34 pints for $40)

They’re in season now so don’t miss the chance to get them at a great price. I’ve been buying amazing blueberries for several years from Aldi. At the time of this writing, $1.19 per pint. Wow. (That’s up from the price they were a few weeks ago, 99 cents!) Continue reading

How to eat a lot and still lose weight

I love to eat. I love good food. And I like to eat a lot of it. But that’s a problem because I can’t. Not if I want to maintain a healthy weight. Many years ago I learned to volumize food. It’s a concept more common and popularized thanks to the terrific work of Barbara Rolls, PhD, her research and many subsequent books on Volumetrics, her first written in 2000. The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet: Smart, Simple, Science-Based Strategies for Losing Weight and Keeping It Off is more recent. It’s not a new concept to lose weight. Volumetrics is based on the idea that people tend to eat about the same quantity of food per day, regardless of calories. Continue reading

Blueberries – the blue jewel! Celebrate its month and our nation’s birthday!

The No Diet Diet for 2015

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-image-old-bathroom-scale-image24205556It’s the New Year and most certainly we can expect to be bombarded with all sorts of diets and folks setting New Year’s resolutions.

Sure, much of my work is with weight loss, though here’s the kicker, I actually de-emphasize the scale. More importantly, it’s the lifestyle and behavioral changes that ultimately will provide my clients with the abundant energy and life of their dreams. The phrase the no diet diet came to my mind. (Darn, it’s already taken.)

Diets have been around for centuries. Why do people diet? If dieting worked, wouldn’t everyone that went on one be skinny? Of course! In reality it’s quite the contrary. Continue reading
