Find a dietary plan not just a diet

Find a dietary plan not just a diet

There is a big difference between a dietary plan and a diet, in my mind. A dietary plan is an all-encompassing way of eating which is a long-term change that will fundamentally transform the way you eat for the rest of your life. Your dietary plan should include short-term and long-term boundaries. A diet is a short-term way of eating to hit a goal.  Most people are looking for a diet they can get on to lose weight. The one thing that I have learned is, there is no quick fix to weight loss and getting healthy. Most people spend their whole lives doing diets. Obviously, they are not successful, because if the last diet was successful, they would not need the new one. more “Find a dietary plan not just a diet”

A time to remember

Remember the time.

Standing at the stove as the sun light started to peek through the window shades this morning felt natural. I could remember the time my great-grandmother was standing at the stove in her kitchen in Tennessee. It was an ancient stove to today’s standards. It still used wood for fuel. But she treated it like it was most important thing in the house. I miss those summer days  being a little kid looking up to this, fish catching, shotgun shooting, pig slaughtering, snuff chewing, blue-eyed, dark-skinned woman named Joe. She talked with that Tennessee draw that always makes you feel at home. Every morning she was up before the sun getting breakfast for the family. more “A time to remember”
