Eating and Fasting
Did you know that the Puritans used to FAST before and after the big holiday meal we call Thanksgiving Day? Yes. Fast. Before AND after. (What a bunch of party poopers they were, huh?) Plus, they seem to have regularly burned a few more carbs in a day than we do, for some reason. (Can’t imagine why – they DID have the wheel, so how much hard work was there then, really?)
Jerry is a former airline pilot whose weight crept up after he retired – here’s how he gained the weight in the first place, how he lost it, and what changes we can make in our lives to help us all eat well and remain at the weight that is best for us.
Okay, okay. Martini’s have calories, but the point is, if we eat just fewer bites with each meal, exercise a little more, we can take off 1-2 pounds a week which is 50 pounds a year! Et voila! The martini (or the pumpkin pie) is the reward for doing the right thing all the other times.
