Start 2022 with better sleep!

Start 2022 with better sleep!

  I think it’s safe to say that there is no shortage of people having trouble sleeping these days. Fair statement? As a matter of fact, according to the National Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the National Institutes of Health, between 30-40 percent of adults say they occasionally suffer from insomnia, and about 10-15 percent report chronic insomnia.  Unfortunately, the popular go-to remedies end up causing more harm than good. Here’s what I mean:...

Is this why we’re so sick and overweight?

Is this why we’re so sick and overweight?

  I have an interesting quote for you today about the relationship between diet and health. Although the author says "bread" in the quote, he's really talking about food in general. See if you can guess who said it: "I know, too, that the body is affected differently by bread according to the manner in which it is prepared... The influence of each process is considerable, and each has a totally different effect from another....

Why does the media ignore these COVID facts?

Why does the media ignore these COVID facts?

  If you are a bit “seasoned” like I am, you probably remember when the “news” was actually that—reporting on important information or events taking place, with no opinions, hidden agendas or slants.  Now?  It’s a fear-inducing psychological operation carried out by very well-trained, well-groomed actors, and COVID has been their choice of topic 24/7 for the last nearly two years. But if these script readers truly cared about reporting NEWS, how about telling people...

How your diet feeds disease…or fights it

  I had the distinct pleasure of being a keynote speaker for the New York Corrections and Youth Services Association’s (NYCAYSA’s) Training Symposium in beautiful Alexandria Bay, NY this past weekend.  Many thanks to everyone there because you were a wonderful audience.  You were attentive, you asked great questions and you even laughed at my silly jokes. Since my presentation went over so well with the NYCAYSA group, I thought I would share highlights of...

I have a secret to tell you

I have a secret to tell you

  I have a little secret to share with you. Today is my birthday, and not only that, this is my LAST birthday in the 50s. Gulp! And while knocking on the door of 60 may sound a little scary on the surface, I honestly feel great! I’m still running every week, doing full-contact karate sparring (fighting men), and enjoying a consistent high level of energy. Plus I recently got mistaken as my daughter’s sister...

One of the biggest threats to our existence

One of the biggest threats to our existence

  You probably know this about me already, but I’m a people watcher. Not in a weird way, but in a professional/educational way. I watch people’s food choices in restaurants, grocery stores and (most recently since I just flew home from Florida yesterday) airports and look for any obvious physical issues. I’m not judging—rather, as a nutritionist, it’s important for me to see first-hand what people are eating and how it may affect them!  I’ve...
