How Life Gave a Homeless Man a Second Chance Posted on May 17th, 2009
Have you ever been homeless? Imagine being without a home, a roof over your head, money for gas and food in your belly? A pretty daunting thought – right?
Well Richard LeMieux was a wealthy businessman who fell on hard times and ended up living in his van on the streets of Bremerton Washington for over two years. His compelling story “Breakfast at Sally’s” is one of the best books I have ever read. Last night we got a chance to hear Richard speak at a local bookstore. He recounted his experience of being homeless, hopeless, abandoned by his friends and family and how the homeless community and various out-reach programs embraced him and others in this predicament.
Breakfast at Sallys is just that – breakfast every morning at the Salvation Army.
Richard’s new found success has brought speaking engagements, an interview with the New York Times and an up-coming appearance on Good Morning America. Never give up! Good going Richard LeMieux
Kirstie Alley Has Regained All the Weight Posted on May 17th, 2009
Recent show on Oprah – Kirstie Alley had regained all the weight that she’s lost in 2007.
I could have to told you so. I wrote about Kirstie in my best selling book: The Body Knows Diet – Cracking the Weight Loss Code.
In my opinion Kirstie Alley is intolerant or allergic to common foods – especially the ones she eats frequently. It doesn’t matter that she is the spokes person for a well-known weight loss center. If she consumes foods to which she is sensitive, intolerant or allergic, she WILL gain weight. Alas after she left the controlled conditions of the diet facility all her weight returned and then some.
Weight gain is related to multiple sensitivities to common foods, an overgrowth of yeast in the digestive tract hence uncontrollable cravings, high carbohydrate consumption plus imbalanced hormones. Not enough exercise is a factor too. Kristie, get with the program ~ I would love to guide you with permanent weight loss.
Jenny McCarthy Has Given Up Sugar Posted on May 13th, 2009
Jenny McCarthy has given up sugar. This feisty advocate for Autism announced that she has given up sugar, gluten, corn and a number of offending foods. Try it for yourself. I gave up these foods 25 years ago and it changed my life. No more pain and joint stiffness, better memory and concentration, lots of energy. Healthy aging – turn back the aging clock. People don’t realize that food is fuel. What you pout in to your body translates in to cell tissue and power. Rev up your power and eat what your body wants, not what you want. Mood and energy follows blood sugar. Good for Jenny.
Extreme Home Makeover Remedies Mold Problems Posted on May 12th, 2009
Last night I watched Extreme Home Makeover. I love Ty Pennington and his complete control or out-of-control home redos for deserving families.
In last night’s show, a Nevada family found themselves in a huge crisis because inside their new tract home severe damage resulted from a number of floods. Apparently, poor construction, bad plumbing installation, and over-flowing drains caused a build-up of environmental molds putting the two children into life-threatening health problems.
These mold problems were so severe to the point where the girls could not attend regular school and had to rely on breathing apparatus to cope with the environment. The parents were understandably distraught. In my opinion, mold is one of the biggest health challenges that we face in today’s world. Stay away from moldy damp climates. Keep basements dry and realize that mold can be more serious than we think. It can trigger not only breathing problems but headaches, depression and anxiety not to mention arthritis and join pain. Stay dry, stay elevated. Buy a home that is off the ground and has a dry basement or crawl space. Get your home checked out every year for creeping ubiquitous molds.
