Suzanne Somers: Who Knew?

Actually, Somers has been touting and advertizing fitness and health products for years. You mght have been tempted to make light (or even fun) of her thigh master commercials, but you can't argue with results. The woman looks fantastic. And, she is a best-selling author. This series of short blurbs by Somers on how to lose weight later in life and how to maintain health and vitatlity is well, inspiring. As I read these, my thoughts were yep, that's it, that's what I've been trying to do. I encourage you to look at this article and pick things you can actually do and stick with. The easiest advice is probably what we've been saying all along. Eat fresh fruits, veggies, and fish or meat (red meat in moderation), drink lots of water, and cut way back on processed sugary foods and white flour. Here's the link. http://tinyurl.com/7ghlhvl

By the way, my husband, Tim, has become quite the baker over that past few years. As he finds new recipes and becomes more confident in his own judgement, he increasingly alters them to greatly reduce or eliminate white flour and sugar. By substituting whole wheat flour, bran, and wheat germ, and using only enough sugar for a pleasant ( not super sweet) taste, he is turning dessert type foods into something much healthier and delicious.
