Day 14 2015 IMW Spring Challenge

Day 14- A day of rest.

"If Al Gore invented the Internet, I invented spell chek"---Dan Quayle

Give yourself something every day to look forward to as long as it is healthy.

It is day 14 and it is Sunday. For me that means time to reflect on the highlights of the last two weeks.

We started the challenge with Intermittent Fasting, followed closely  by eliminating grains, especially wheat, and then processed foods were next to go. The introduction of salads are good for you and adding more fish to your diet was next.

We introduced the benefits of exercise in...

Day 12 2015 IMW Spring Challenge

"I always skate to where the puck is going, not where it's been"---- Wayne Gretsky

Way back, when I first discovered the lower carbohydrate lifestyle, I had some issues controlling my appetite. I got tired of eating eggs for breakfast and wanted some variety. Then I found protein shakes. My first shake was very yummy but a bit too sweet which instead of decreasing my appetite, did the opposite. So I almost gave up on shakes. Then I began making a protein shake with whey protein, whole fat homemade yogurt, blueberries and whatever supplements I was taking at the time. What I discovered was that...

DrH Food Diary Day 2

Tuesday April 9th, 2013 Wow! I am still always amazed how well I sleep when I take Vitamin D before bedtime. I realize it does not work for everyone, but what a difference for me. Asleep at midnight, lots of dreams, and awoke at 630am to sunshine and feeling well rested. Maybe that can also be from eating less yesterday? Will have to keep that in mind. Last night I did have a dessert. Fresh strawberries and raspberries topped with a little whipped cream and two teaspoons of cinnamon swirl Paleo Krunch. Yum Yum, and its Paleoish too!! Exercised for 10 minutes this morning. Non-stop mostly legs with a small amount...

Last meal finished 700pm Sunday evening. Nothing but water after. Awoke 640am Looked out window to get sunlight on face,  helps with sleep-wake cycle.

The IMW Dream Breakfast Shake revisited

There comes a time in every man's life when he has to admit that things do not always work as expected. Back about 4 years ago, I introduced my IMW Dream Breakfast Shake. It was my answer to starting off the day with good nutrition, decreased hunger, and to help with weight loss if that was a goal. Many of my patients used the IMW Dream Breakfast Shake as per the recipe, and found it very tasty, satisfying and helpful in the areas just mentioned. But others have come in and stated that while the shake was tasty, and they were using it at...
