If your skin is improving, people are going to notice without realizing what they're noticing. A healthy glow just looks a lot different than an anemic pallour. I also find that at certain key points in our weight loss, our proportions seem to shift, so everybody seems to notice at once. And if you keep bumping into people who haven't seen you in a while, you're going to be fielding comments almost constantly.

I love smoothies. I've been adding a couple of raw eggs for both fat and protein, sometimes coconut milk. What I throw in is a little different every time, depending on what's available, but bananas and/or frozen berries are pretty well always involved. Adding cinnamon not only adds flavour, but goodness. Pretty well every herb and spice used in cooking has something beneficial going for it, so I try to use them whenever I can. I never remember precisely what they're good for, but it doesn't matter. The food tastes better too.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
