    It has been said that the only thing that works is the thing you can stick to.

    My favorite meal of the day is dinner/supper. I build my day around that. I've tried in the past to "get healthy" by...

    I can "break" almost every rule occasionally and have no ill effects, but chronically ignoring some make a huge difference. For example, the occasional sandwich is okay, but a few days of sandwiches...

    This doesn't surprise me much. I've often thought that many people over eat not because they're gluttonous, but because they're hungry for nutrients. The worst of the worst SAD/CW is grain (cereal,...

    Depending on where you live, you can find alcohol-free kombucha.

    Still and all, half a percent ABV (.5%) is like 8-one thousandths of an ounce of alcohol in a 16 oz bottle. I think an ant might...

    Yep... I intuitively knew this, but never bothered to research it because my n=1 showed that it worked for me.
