Book Club – Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease

This week we review Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" “If you follow a plant-based nutrition program to reduce your total cholesterol level to below 150 mg/dL and the LDL level to less than 80 mg/dL, you cannot deposit fat and cholesterol into your coronary arteries. Period.” [...]

Habits Determine Your Health

Your habits determine your health!  It’s that simple. If you can change your habits, you can change your health. Realize this, we are either healthy or unhealthy. Which are you? Don’t sugar coat your answer, we can justify everything these days and we usually do. Change only happens when you are totally honest with yourself [...]

Why Diets Fail

Diets are much like processed foods, there are too many and no one ever really has been able to sustain their long term weight loss by using either.  Obesity has become an epidemic in the United States.  But it doesn’t just affect us, our global economy has now brought our affluent diseases to nearly every region of [...]

If one were to look for the personification of dedication, resolve, and discipline … Stella would be it. But it wasn’t always that way. “I had yo-yo'd so many [...]

The Ever Expanding Universe and Your Waistline

This month marks the 100th Anniversary of Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, and that means PARTY TIME!  But before you begin your celestial celebration, keep in mind that aspects of the theory of general relativity (or rather, where the theory is weak (that’s a joke in itself)) could mean that eating too much party food [...]
