Health Buzz: Junk Food Diet May Lower IQ – US News and World Report.

I wholeheartedly agree with this article!! Even though you can watch the contestants on The Biggest Loser lose weight quickly and with the most grueling workouts, that doesn’t mean that you can or should start that way. Obesity has become a mental issue, sometimes more than a physical one. The emotions that surround your reasons for being obese are stronger than the physical impulses to overeat. Most times you don’t eat because your stomach tells you to, you eat and eat because your heart and ego tell you to!!

This is why holistic health/wellness is key to a successful lifestyle. No matter what path you take – alternative medicine, exercise, nutrition/diet changes – you have to approach all aspects of YOUR being – mental/emotional, physical, spiritual (relationships and not the emotions and conditioning that dictate your choices in life) – with the same amount of zeal and effort. It doesn’t make sense to do all the exercise and fasting and all this if you haven’t resolved the emotional issues that lead you to eat in the first place.

I probably said this so many times on so many occasions. You’ve probably heard this from others many times before. That’s fine. As long as it takes for you to do the right things, the things that better you, I’ll say it over and over and over.

Teach One. Reach One. Each One. That’s the healthiest junk I can give you today. Bless!

Junk News XI: Getting tough on Mr. Softee: Parents bitter trucks stop at schools, parks

Can you believe this? Right in my own backyard... :(

It seems really easy to blame Mr. Softee here, doesn’t it folks? But I won’t. I’ve lived too long with Mr. Softee and all the good treats he provides.

Before I get into lists and long explanations, I’ll say two things and then give you enough time to get mad at me:

  1. Too much of anything isn’t good for you. There is nothing wrong with balance. Give the kids some treats…especially if they deserve it.
  2. If PARENTS made their kids run and play and do some form of exercise instead of sitting in front of a TV all day, maybe they won’t have to worry about the foods they eat (or don’t eat).

I’m getting over a bad cold right now and that’s why I haven’t been posting like I need to. Don’t you hate it when real life just gets in the way? ;)
