SparkPoints: 60,159

Fitness Minutes: 30,946

My Goals:
To get below 159 for a start, so I am only "overweight" on the BMI scale instead of "obese".
Ugh, I hate labels!

My Program:
My program keeps evolving as I look for the magic foods that will make me feel vibrant and lose weight as a side effect. I am trying to change my mindset from "diet" processed foods based on calories to healthy choices of whole natural foods.

My exercise has to be fun and enjoyable to me or I won't do it.

Personal Information:
I am 64 living on the west coast.

Other Information:
I love reading, traveling, and learning about new things. I am always digging into some new subject, especially on the internet. Probably a major cause of my inactivity and weight gain. I need an exercise to do with a laptop!
I adore books! My home is filled to the brim with an eclectic collection of fascinating words and knowledge.
I also love to experience new cultures and travel to different countries.

Little mini-challenge for you: Gain energy from eating some vitamin C-rich foods.

Over the next few days, concentrate on adding foods rich in vitamin C to your meals or snacks. There are plenty of options, including red or green bell pepper, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, and papaya. Or get a liquid dose with a glass of orange, grapefruit, or vegetable juice. A chewable vitamin C is also a viable option (I find this easiest, actually).

A deficiency in vitamin C may deplete your levels of carnitine (a substance that helps your body burn fat for energy) by as much as 50%. As you'd expect, that can make you feel a lot less energetic! Many of us don't get the C we need, so adding one vitamin C-rich food can help you bring those levels up and keep you going strong throughout the day. emoticon emoticon
