    Grrrrrrrr.......     Please, Let's Save the Species!

    I highly recommend the recent 4 Hour Special on HBO "The Weight of the Nation".  It is divided in to 4 One hour Parts. Part 1: "Consequences" examines the scope of the Obesity Epidemic and explores the serious consequences of being overweight or obese.  Part 2: "Choices". Like last month's article this one deals with the problem with added sugar in the diet and there is a section about how stress affects us. It is impossible for anyone under stress to follow goal oriented behavior, we default back to a "Comfort Mode". Part 3: "Children in Crisis" looks at what influences our children to eat what they eat. Part 4: "Challenges" We must make fundamental changes at the Government Level to stop subsidizing the industries making enormous profits from their products.  It's a mess and experts are trying to get the Government's attention, but it is a uphill fight, but we must win this one or we will lose. I remember Dr. Sears saying, "I want to save the species", that's what we are talking about and at Inside Outside you are learning the "Cure for our Health and Fitness Crisis".   "The Inside Outside Way of Life!"

    16 Things You didn't Know About Sleep, from Infographic World!



    "Sleep, that knits up the ravell'd sleave of care.

    The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,

    balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,

    chief nourisher in life's feast." 

    Shakespeare, MacBeth, Act II.

    More data about lack of Sleep and How Stress affects us and causes Weight Gain!

    I Love to Sleep!! Dr. Sapolsky & Dr. Christian

    The data just keeps pouring in.  Lack of Sleep and Stress profoundly affects our ability to make good food choices, we just cannot force ourselves to pursue goal directed behavior when we are sleep deprived and under stress.  Here are a couple of links to recent studies that are highlighting the serious affect of Lack of Sleep and Stress on our lives. In May of this year Dr. Christian attended a seminar at the UTHSC, sponsored by the Ethics Department. Dr. Robert Sapolsky, a renowned Stress researcher at Stanford University, and Author of "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers" was the speaker and reviewed some of his work on the effects of stress which we impose on others daily related to the inequality of social and economic status which exists in the world today.     Lack of Sleep & Junk Food      Stress & Goal Oriented Behavior      See Article of the Month!    Robert Sapolsky Phd at Wikipedia

    Spotlight on Sun Protection!  Understanding  "The Dark Side of the Sun" UV and Infrared!!

    I make the plants grow!

    I destroy your skin!
    The Sun is the source of all life on earth but for many the sun has produced a wide range of unwanted changes and sometimes even cancers on our faces and bodies.  In this review, Dr. Christian discusses the "Dark Side Of the Sun" and what we can do to prevent and even reverse some of the unwanted effects of the Sun.  This page is one of the most popular on our website and gets many hits from around the world. In addition to UV Damage we also need to protect against Infrared rays and they are more abundant than UV!! Protect yourself from.......

    Inside Outside gets an "Extreme Makeover"!  Come see the New Carpet and DXA Room!

    The Demolition Team, Pulling up carpet is hard work!


    In May, Inside Outside has underwent a major renovation with new carpet and baseboards throughout the office.  We also had the DXA Room upgraded with carpet, new worksurfaces and shelving. The bathroom had new tile, a paint job and a new deluxe flushing toilet!!   All compliments of Methodist Plaza on the occasion of renewing our lease for 5 more years!  Dr. Christian is seen with the Demolition and Renovation Team consisting of Rudy Jr, Rudy, Paul, Michael and Marko!!  Pulling up Carpet is hard work!!  We still have a little more money to spend by the end of the year so expect an update in the next newsletter.
