Yes, believe it or not, my saying is: Eat More, Exercise More. The trite saying: "Eat Less, Exercise More", is a myth. For longterm success, you must figure out what to eat and you certainly can eat more...I do.
Here's an article titled: Eat More to Lose Weight.
I happened to see these talking (yes talking) cows on a TV commercial. They appear to be very happy and living in a pasture.
Um, the reality is that 99% of cows that are used for beef and milk reside at factory farms and basically can't move. And, since they are disease-prone, are fed a healthy amount of antibiotics.
Most of the antibiotics used in this country (over 50%) are used at factory farms - not on humans. Here's the fascinating story about it.
Please accept my apologies for bursting your bubble.
Pepsi seems to think that real sugar and high fructose corn syrup are really different. Yo Pepsi; Not really - calories are the same and you can expect about 9 teaspoons of sugar in each one. There is one difference: real sugar is more expensive. So, that's why this will be available for a limited time.
There is one doc who does believe that there is a difference. You can watch the video here.
And here's a little flashback:
Many years ago, Steve Jobs was recruiting John Sculley (then president of PepsiCo) for the CEO position at Apple Computer. He bluntly asked him, “Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugar water to children, or do you want a chance to changethe world?” Mr. Sculley took the position with Apple. While I do not have first-hand knowledge about his decision to leave PepsiCo, all of us should question our huge consumption of sugar water, better known as soda, soft drinks and juice.
This "fruit" juice should be the poster child for junk food.
First, take note of what it states at its website:
POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice is a little bit sweet, a little bit tart and a whole lotta healthy. Bursting with superior levels of naturally occurring antioxidants and backed by $32 million in medical research, it’s also 100% authentic, 100% delicious and 100% pure, meaning there’s no added sugar, colorants or cheap filler juices. So raise a glass to life. And the pursuit of healthiness.
Here's what you need to know. In a 16-ounce bottle it has 15 teaspoons of sugar and 300 calories.
The back of the bottle states: Drink it daily. Feel it forever. I agree, around the hips. Just like the bottle demonstrates.
Okay, that's 42 of the Domino's container - wow! A typical salad dressing is 25-30% sugar (the white stuff in the bottle), and one of my old-time favorites - Arby's Jamoca Shake has 25 teaspoons of sugar (pictured in the cup).
Now, you can visualize how we each consume so much sugar.
Since a business owner's health is important, I was asked to speak on the Small Business Advocate.
100% Whole Wheat
7 grams of fiber
7 grams of sugar (almost 2 teaspoons)

I don't know about you, but I'm going with the tortilla for my sandwich. It has 195 fewer calories and no sugar. The winner is the tortilla. This one was purchased at Trader Joes.
