Now I enjoy Thanksgiving stress-free. I can do so because I have a plan for enjoying Thanksgiving while still continuing my weight loss journey. Here are four key elements of my plan. Continue reading
A new study was published that found eating broccoli and avocados will make us look younger! And it gets even better. Research has found that the nicotinamide mono nucleotide in these foods, when consumed at a heavy dosage, delivers these additional benefits:
- better skeletal muscle
- improved liver and eye function
- enhanced insulin sensitivity
- improved immune function
- increased physical activity levels.
Here’s some ever better news. Americans are eating more broccoli. The U.S. Agriculture Department estimates we eat about 8 pounds of broccoli per year. This is almost double our consumption of broccoli from 1990. Feel good about that when you have some broccoli this week!
BUT…now compare those 8 pounds of broccoli to the approximately ONE TON (1,996 pounds) of food we individually eat each year.
Some shocking insights on what we consume!
Even thought we are eating more healthy foods like broccoli we are still in a national weight crisis. Here are the facts that explain why:
- We eat about a TON of food every year!
- We consume 630 pounds of diary products. We are talking about milk, cheese, and ice cream. That represents 31% of the ton of food we eat annually.
- The good news is that we eat 415 pounds of vegetables. The bad news is that most of that is corn and potatoes. Think french fries and corn on the comb slathered with butter. Not good for our health and weight loss.
- We eat an equal amount of meat and grains. We consume 197 pounds of grains (bread) and 185 pounds of meat (beef, chicken, pork).
- We consume almost as much sweetener as grains and meat! We consume 141 pounds of sweetener. Think soda.

Why did McDonald’s see their sales fall? In a word, millennials! Continue reading

There is a reason why we keep failing at sustained weight loss. We get motivated by the promise of losing ten pounds in ten days. But we fail because the focus is on performance.
I know this is counterintuitive. Everything in our society is about performance. The business success model is to measure, act and audit. When we apply that to dieting and exercise we experience hunger, pain and performance anxiety. Our bathroom scale becomes our enemy. We feel failure. We stop our weight loss journey.

Its secret is to approach the weight loss journey as a path to a richer and more enjoyable life. The Boomer Generation Diet provides tools to create a path of discovery where we experience new tastes that surprise and delight. We discover how to play again. We discover that you can lose weight, have fun and live more+. Continue reading
