We constantly hear about sugar and how it is so harmful to our health. Which sugars harm us and do any of them benefit us?

Let's start off with, what exactly is sugar? It is a simple, edible carbohydrate that is known as common table sugar, sucrose. It is extracted from cane or beets.  When you look on a nutritional label, it ends with  - ose such as glucose, maltose, fructose and dextrose.  Sugar is made from…

The Importance of Triglycerides and HDL Ratio

Most of us get stuck on our total cholesterol numbers as the most important risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

It is actually the ratio between HDL (known as the "good" cholesterol) and the total cholesterol that we need to be concerned about.

Just divide your HDL by your total.

I will use my numbers that I just received from my doctor last week. 

Total cholesterol - 234 

HDL - 93

Just by looking at my total cholesterol most…

Soar With the Eagles – or Roost With the Chickens

Who Influences You?

When my clients start working with me to gain the objectives of improving their lives, one of my first questions is. “How many people have direct influence over your life, such as your spouse, children, friends, relatives, etc.? Asking this question lays down a specific directive for my client to assess.

Achieve Your Impossible Dream

Over and over again, we dream big dreams and have enormous aspirations. Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that - dreams.

Life could be a great deal better, if only we learned to aspire higher. The most widespread difficulty in setting goals is the word impossible. For the most part people get hung up thinking I can't do this. It is too hard. It is unattainable. No one can do this. If…

Success is in the blood. There are men whom fate can never keep down they march forward in a jaunty manner, and take by divine right the best of everything that the earth affords. But their success is not attained by means of the Samuel Smiles-Connecticut policy. They do not lie in wait, nor scheme, nor fawn, nor seek to adapt their sails to catch the breeze of popular favor. Still, they are ever alert and alive to any good that…

Hippocrates stated, among other things, “First Do No Harm”. However, most outside the world of Nutrition are not aware of another quote by Hippocrates.. ” Let Food Be Thy Medicine..”.
