    Improve your Sleep, Just as Important as Strength Training and Nutrition.




    As most of you know, I have become more and more convinced of the importance of a good night's sleep and have been researching the topic extensively over the past 8 months.  Hi-Lo Strength Training, A Low Glycemic Adequate High Quality Protein Diet and A Good Night's Sleep are a Dynamite Combination!  Using the Zeo to measure my sleep brain waves at night, the Phillips Blue Light to help me reset my daily clock and some improvement in my sleep habits have made a big difference in how I feel.  There is a lot of good data now that lack of adequate/quality sleep leads to increased mortality, hypertension, glucose intolerance and messes up our hormones so we crave more food and carbohydrates.  I would welcome any of you to call and let's discuss how you can improve your sleep habits!

     4 Bad Habits can age you by 12 Years!!

    From msnbc: Four common bad habits combined — smoking, drinking too much, inactivity and poor diet — can age you by 12 years, sobering new research suggests. The findings are from a study that tracked nearly 5,000 British adults for 20 years, and they highlight yet another reason to adopt a healthier lifestyle.


    Overall, 314 people studied had all four unhealthy behaviors. Among them, 91 died during the study, or 29 percent. Among the 387 healthiest people with none of the four habits, only 32 died, or about 8 percent. The risky behaviors were: smoking tobacco; downing more than three alcoholic drinks per day for men and more than two daily for women; getting less than two hours of physical activity per week; and eating fruits and vegetables fewer than three times daily.

    Environmental Working Group Shoppers Guide to Pesticides!!

      You can lower your pesticide consumption by nearly four-fifths by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables and instead eating the least contaminated produce, according to EWG calculations. When you eat the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, you’ll be exposed to an average of 10 pesticides a day. When you choose fresh produce from the 15 least contaminated fruits and vegetables, you’ll consume fewer than 2 pesticides per day.

    Memorial Day, a Day to Remember fallen Comrades



    "The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit."
