The contents of your grocery cart is a reflection of you


I was recently caught in a long line in my local grocery store waiting for checkout.  This gave me an opportunity to look around and observe my fellow shoppers and what was in their carts.

The lady in front of me had 4   two liter bottles of soda in the bottom of her cart, along with a 6 pack of Pepsi.  There were 2 bags of chips, two packs of hot dogs along with hotdog buns.  There were several frozen dinners, pizzas, boxed macaroni and cheese, a box of donuts, a loaf of white bread, and some bologna.

Why dietary supplements are necessary.

There continues to be a great deal of controversy surrounding dietary supplements.  Many profess that supplements are not necessary if you ingest a balanced diet.  I would say that that might be correct IF one eats a balanced diet.  All one has to do is go to a grocery store and stand in line at the checkout tosee what people are eating.  It is anything but balanced!  Most have very little nutritious food in theircart.  It is, however, filled with chips, dips, sodas, frozen dinners, pastries, cakes, and junk!

Let’s talk about water and hydration!
 
I know, this isn’t the most entertaining or fascinating topic to talk about, but is one of the most important for our health.  I am sitting here in the Southwest where heat records have been occurring on a daily basis.  To be blunt, “it’s been hotter than hell here!”  It is imperative that you get enough water daily; if you wait until you are thirsty, it’s too late!

Our bodies are comprised of about 65% water.  Keeping fully hydrated is necessary for a variety of bodily functions, physiological processes and biochemical reactions.

Things have changed!
 
For those of you who are older, you know that things “ain’t” what they used to be.  Change can be good, but it also can have deleterious consequences.
I have been a healthcare provider for 45 years and was indoctrinated in the ways of medical profession at that time.  Little questioning was done at the time and we just believed in what was taught.  Well, we now know that many things were not correct.  Here’s a few:

Habits- How to change a habit

Habits- How to change a habit
 
You have tried and tried and tried to change a habit, such as lose weight.  I would bet that you can name all the different weight loss programs and have tried just about everyone.  Frustrating, isn’t it?  You just want to give up and eat all the pizza or the entire cake, or the whole gallon of ice cream.  Please don’t give up; learn the process of change, if you truly want to change.

It’s time to realize that you can’t really truly extinguish a habit; you have to change and replace it.

Habits, The Good, Bad, and Ugly


 
I thought I’d start my blog with the topic of habits.  Habits are something that everyone has and begins very early in life.    Just think about a typical day.  You wake up and start your day with habits, how you get up, brush your teeth, eat breakfast, dress, travel to work, when you have your breaks, lunch, location as well as who you eat with, when you leave work, the route you travel home, and then what you like to eat.  Most activities are accomplished almost on automatic pilot.
