After some work related travel which was followed by an illness/horrendously bad cold that wouldn’t die (finally I am back to health!! YAY!), I am back in the groove.
I highly recommend you not get sick.
But anyways, I digress . . . . .
I recently found a press release in my inbox. And while there is nothing particularly unusual about that (I am a member of the media, after all), this one caught my eye.
It was a diet.
More precisely, it was a ‘buy my food item and your life will be grand’ diet.
I won’t go into specific details, but I will say this – there is no magic food. There is no magic diet. I know you know this. It’s common sense, really. If eating a certain food meant instant weight loss then don’t you think every single person would now be thin? Right?!?!?
Over and over we always come back to one thing – move more, eat less. Heck, even the world’s oldest man will tell you that zipping those lips will help you tremendously.
According to Walter Breuning of Great Falls, Montana, who just celebrated his 113th birthday, we could all benefit from a little less food.
We’re not talking starvation. We’re talking eating enough, but not too much.
His sage advice, as told to USA Today:
"I think you should push back from the table when you're still hungry. If you could just tell people not to eat so darn much."
Walter assures that, with a little less in your tummy, you’ll feel a whole lot better. Oh, Walter also suggests you drink plenty of water and eat lots of fruit, too.
Rock on Walter!!
