    Do you need to wait to feel hungry before eating? Worst Diet Advice: 'Only Eat When Hungry'

    Why you shouldn’t let hunger drive your dietary decisions . Don't believe it? What happens when you go to the supermarket hungry? Well you shop differently, of course, coming home with items you'd have never purchased on a full stomach. And what happens when you sit down to a meal hungry? Well you're still shopping of course, only this time you're shopping from your plate, your fridge, your cupboards, your freezer, or worst of all, from a menu. emoticon

    If you are like me and have had or raised children. Then you know that our kids look to us to set examples for them to follow.

    It isn't always easy to do. Especially when it comes to what we eat and fitting in exercise. Most of us lead busy lives and sometimes it isn't easy to fit in regular exercise, but unless you make it a priority, you are risking your child becoming a couch potato and junk food junkie.

    So where do we start. We start by taking them shopping with us and teaching them to pick out healthy whole grains, fruit, vegetables and lean meats, poultry or fish.

    I have always tried to make my sons part of the process even in the kitchen. When it comes to handling the food that is just as important as knowing how to pick it out if we want it to remain healthy enough to eat. That is why wash, rinse and sanitize is such an important fact to remember when it comes to food prep and handling.

    After the shopping is done and everything is put away. Dinner is over with, we have the choice of sitting in front of the tv or going to our rooms and playing video games. Not in my house. We would go for a walk, bike ride or often a hike across the canal in the woods around Peanut Lake. The boys to this day are still very active and even belong to gyms. I am so proud that they take an active roll in their relationships as adults in meal planning and exercise.

    Remember that also snack planning is just as important. Not just for the children, but for those of us that want to eat healthy. We can prepare our snacks ahead of time and have them ready to go in a snack bag. This makes snacking healthier and convenient.

    So how about you, are there any suggestions that you can think of ?

    Thanks for the goodie. We didn't have much sun here today. It has been raining like crazy and lots of rumbling thunder. We need the rain so that's fine ; )

    Rewarding yourself with gifts emoticon along the way is great in theory but tough in practice—your schedule is already jam-packed! Make it more fun and realistic by getting your friends emoticon involved. "One of the best ideas I ever heard was from a SparkPeople.com member," Nichols says. "She gave several of her friends $20 each to buy her a surprise gift emoticon , wrap it and everything. Then for each 10 pounds she lost emoticon emoticon (you could determine the interval yourself), she would open one of the gifts emoticon purchased by her friends emoticon for a really fun and surprising reward along her journey."

    Glad all came out well with your test! Glad you have a good doctor who is suggesting having the other problem addressed. No since in fooling around with problems later. God bless!
