Nutritional Nugget

NOTE: Before going to California to visit our children, I pre-posted some articles, petitions, etc. Regular posting will resume after we return on August 1st.  Responses to your comments, which I appreciate, will be answered when we return the first week in August. Thanx, ellensue

 

 

 

For every three adult Americans, one is obese, one is overweight, and one is lean.

Knowing about excess calories may help us be more aware of what we eat and how

difficult losing weight can be (especially after menopause es).

 

Losing and keeping weight off can be difficult, but avoiding common misconceptions

(ex. finding a sensible eating plan you can stick to es), can help with the battle of the

bulge.

P.S. Personal Note: I do not eat after 7 pm and then not again until 8 am the next day. I have been practicing this for only one month and already have lost about 3 or 4 pounds.  My goal is to lose the 8-.10 pounds I gained during menopause. On my 5′ 1 1/2″ frame that 8-10 pounds equal one to two dress/pant sizes. This was a tip from my friend Hope with something to do about the liver needing that time to de-toxify.  ellensue

    Yes, need to lose too…..I’ve lost 3 to 4 inches in height, so that doesn’t help when body mass is
    squshed (sp.) on body frame. Congrats for Lose!

    Thanks for the information, my eating schedule is slightly different since I eat anywhere form
    4:30 to 5:30 in the morning, and try to eat before 5:30 at night which I guess gives my liver
    time to detoxify. I weigh approximately the same as I did when I was graduated from high school
    which is approximately 140. Originally 5 6′ and very active, I really try to maintain the same
    weight, never gain or lose much because osteoporosis is more likely in a very thin person
    so keep that it mind when giving advice. Activity level and eating the right foods seems more
    important than a little extra weight and strength has to be considered as well. The Fitness
    Director at Ware is doing an article on Senior Fitness, and she has asked me to be featured in it
    along with another lady.
