  • Health Goals for 2013
    By Health Blog on December 30, 2012 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    With 2012 just about over it’s time to think about resolutions for the new year. My year hasn’t been the best in terms of health as I have over-eaten and under exercised! So I’m carrying a few pounds too many!

    One good thing I have done this year is to quit drinking alcohol completely! No more fine red wine for this little duck. And it really hasn’t been a problem. Friends keep trying to ply me with alcohol, just as the system tries to push it on me at every turn, but it isn’t a problem once you have really made up your mind to quit. My mind and liver thank me for it every day :-)

    So, anyway, here’s my health goals for 2013

    1. Drink more filtered water
    2. Slowly ween myself off coffee: One per day.. then One only when I go to cafes.. then eventually just move to drinking green tea.
    3. Exercise daily, even if its just a 15 minute walk each day.
    4. Become my ideal weight.
    5. Have at least 2 non-meat days every week.
    6. Less sugar!
    7. Less wheat! See Wheat Belly book.
    8. Shop more at farmers markets and organic shops: ignoring idiots like Dr. Oz.
    9. Buy a bike to ride through the forest near my place.
    10. Smile regularly :-)

    What are some of your new years resolutions regarding your health and fitness?

  • Wheat Belly Book Number 1
    By Health Blog on August 7, 2012 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    I’m guessing wheat farmers everywhere won’t like this news.. Wheat Belly, the book which advocates the elimination of wheat from our diet by Dr.  William Davis is number 1 on the New York Times best sellers on the hardcover advice list of books.

    It’s a new book on my bookshelf and I’m only part way through it, but I have eliminated most of the wheat from my diet and am feeling better for it. Dr Davis has very compelling arguments which are hard to ignore. See his blog here for more information on wheat and what it’s doing to your body (you’ll be shocked if you haven’t looked into it before)
