    So glad to see your post and go to the TED website. I believe this is the scientist/dr? behind what I posted about on Dec. 15th but couldn't pull up info in Norway.
It certainly makes sense and believe it's the right concept. Preventative care!

    I'll have to look at this video but to the question your title asks .... YES it is possible. I know people personally (so I'm not just talking about research I've read, these are real people - one being my cousin) who have done this and if cancer ever strikes me I will also be doing this instead of surgery and radiation/chemotherapy. I've made it perfectly clear to my husband that should we ever get that diagnosis for me then he is NOT to put pressure on me to go the "medical" route but to support me and help me through all the nutritional changes I will need to make. Some places on the web to check out to do further reading ... I have recently found that Dr. Fuhrman has scientific research to back up his claims to certain foods as well. Most people call these people/doctors quacks but I have seen the cancers disappear following these types of diets/lifestyles, so for me, these websites just back up what I've witnessed. (she has pictures of her tumor and it shrinking)

8 surprising health benefits of the Potato - stop dissing the spud!!

Friday, December 23, 2011

Instead of going to sleep early, i just read a cool article today about potatoes - I had no idea all of these health benefits of potatos! And so funny, as Chef Meg just shared her Potato Soup recipe a few days ago. Hmmm - what a neat coincidence!!

Check it out!

To be sure - we still need to watch the butters, creams, cheeses, oils that we use on a potato, but nice to know the potatos are healthier than just being a "carrier" for the high fat yummies like butter and sour cream (and hey, okay to work it in as a treat in your dietary plan but try low-far yogurt etc instead of sour cream.).

But no wonder potatoes are so good in the "chicken soup" and other comfort foods for the winter ills!! Yum !!!

    I really hate what a bad reputation the potato gets, too. It's LOADED with potassium and fiber, and I did really well with weight loss eating lots of potatoes last summer/fall.

Thanks for the link!

I would love seeing what you did to your UR to fix it...I am thinking of getting a rebounder, but I get so overly confused with all the info..... ack!

Anyway, GO YOU!!!!

    I feel bad for the poor old spud. It has definitely gotten a bad rap. I like to say,"it's not the carbs that make people fat. It's the crap!" I remember reading an article a long time ago that said the most popular "vegetable" Americans eat were French Fries ! Now, how scary is that ??

Ever since Thanksgiving, I've been eating sweet potatoes. Love their nutrient dense starchy goodness. yum.

Ultimately, it wasn't the spud that packed pounds on people, it was the out of control portion sizes. Good article !

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

I just saw this on someone else's page. I need to copy this down to look at and study... but too distracted to really focus on a blog. I guess I can consider this like a "Post-It" note and write something else later. Also I can't find this exact website...

Body For Wife??

Monday, December 19, 2011

Just found this webblog "Body For Life" by James someone... oh it says here "James Fell"

He has a hilarious writing style!!
ction-body-for-wife/ not gonna try to quote this -- too many places where I was laughing at how TRUE it is for me - even though he's targeting men, specifically, and yes, I'm planning to email that link to my husband! If he can get on board with me, it should help me out - you know, the teamwork thing, the family that works out together gets sweaty together, all of that... he has this to say:
"Emotional Eating Book
Iím in the process of co-authoring a book on emotional eating which is first on the list for publication. This book will be the exact opposite of anything Oprah would endorse. It will be a scientific analysis of impulsive eating behaviors and how you can learn to control them to reach your fat loss goals, improve your health and feel great inside a high-performance body. Plus, Iím in charge of the writing part, so you know what that means."

Boy, I'm looking forward to that book. Or maybe I'll find it in his blog, as it sounds like much of his blog will be republished as a book?

Then he has "stupid stories" which of course, are hilariously funny (depending on how willing one is to look past the sophomoric humor)...

But he does make a lot of interesting comments...

I'll be busy reading.... see you later!

    OK. Now you *do* understand that spot training doesn't work. Do all your strength training and be faithful to it -- upper, lower, core and full. It's all good.

That is a very funny picture!
