    I think I'm going to try that twinkie. - 11/20/2010   12:51:09 AM

    Someone sent me the TWINKIE DIET in a Sparkmail but I thought it was funny. I love that MEN can lose weight on 1800 calories per day. I GAIN on that much. - 11/17/2010   10:22:27 AM

    The Twinkie article raises some good points actually, about how we don't have to drop our treats, just exercise portion control. :-)
    Good articles this week as usual. - 11/16/2010   12:58:58 PM

    I think I am making pumpkin pie oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow--sounds delicious! - 11/15/2010   6:32:00 PM
    I heard about the Twinkie diet and the popcorn wrapper ones. I did like the cold weather tips. - 11/15/2010   3:25:17 PM
    The 'Fruit and nut energy bar" and the "Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal" articles caught my eye. It would have been helpful if they had provided the calorie content with these articles. I will probably make the pumpkin oatmeal anyway. It looks yummy!

    love the Twinkie diet. I could live on junk foods but don't think it is realistic for a long term diet. just taking in fewer calories will lead to weight loss but don't know that it would help my slightly high blood sugar count and hight blood pressure. - 11/15/2010   11:48:12 AM

    Hi! Loved the tips on meditation! It's nice to take a quiet moment before enjoying a meal :)

    Have a healthy day, everyone :)

    I had heard about the "Twinkie Diet" already, but it still fascinates me. I would like to know how much of that professor's weight loss was fat, and how much was muscle -- if he's eating a lot of low-cal, high-carb foods, he probably lost muscle. It does bring up a great point: Are we so calorie and weight obsessed that we define healthy with numbers, regardless of how we reach those numbers?? - 11/15/2010   8:28:53 AM

    Pumpkin oatmeal sounded good, til I hit the part about bananas. Am I one of the only people on the planet that really hates the taste of any form? - 11/14/2010   4:55:43 PM

    The Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal & ways to keep warm working out caught my eye. I'd already seen (& LOVed) the Prof with the Twinkie diet and shuddered at the fat/cheese push. The microwave popcorn info has been around for a while. I lost a friend to pulmonary fibrosis. Microwave popcorn was a thing she wasn't supposed to have in the house. I like my old Presto hot-air popper! - 11/14/2010   3:23:35 PM

    A lot of great articles this week! I saved the pumpkin oatmeal recipe. Wondered about "mediating" anywhere, until I read the article. Couldn't agree more with Professor Twinkie--it's the calories, stupid. And am real pleased with SparkPeople being featured in the Des Moines paper. - 11/14/2010   10:33:53 AM
