Popular caught my attention!

What actually makes up the cells of your body?  What is absorbed?  Where does it go? How does nutrition reach your cells? Are your vitamins absorbed?

Back in 1967 I became interested in Nutrition, on the popular side, not as a serious study of my own.

I gained my beliefs from reading Adele Davis books.

One of the most popular of her books was a book I poured over, while at the same time, I was drinking diet soda sweetened with one of the newest artificial sweeteners of the day (which has since been banned, of course).

I read and re-read Adele Davis’ book.  I learned the TRUTHS of the day, for me.  I learned more about various nutrients, and learned to be skeptical of prepared and processed foods.  I became a supplement user and believer!

  This book became my “Bible” for the most popular thing we do 3 times a day and while I didn’t know much, I was learning!

My interest went to what to have in my vitamins, should it be the RDA, could it be more? Is less better, how many vitamins do we really need?
Thus began my journey to these –

I’ll be telling more and more, but two of the most memorable and devastating little facts for me were 1) The death of Adele Davis in 1974, when she was only 70 years of age.  How could this be?  I was crushed that the pioneer of the nutritional revolution who taught so much about living a healthy life would be dead at such a young age.

My second devastating fact 2) came to me a little later, and I won’t show any pictures of it. If you’re like me, you’ll get the idea. It was a story that sewage treatment plants have visible vitamin pills being swept around in the sludge.  The clear connotation that most vitamins in pill form go right through the body, and come out the other end intact, of course leaving none of their “stuff” whether good for you or not in your system.

Thus begins the search for more absorbable nutrition! Here’s one I found!

2020 The strangest year of our lives

For me the “shutdown” of 2020 caused by the PANdemIC panic began while we had puppies.  In a way, I was happy when the Leonberger club (and everything else) canceled the annual meeting and dog show.

We would have had to stay home because we had puppies.  They were born on February 17th, 2020.

When the 3-11 shutdown occurred, the puppies were occupying my total attention, so it was a little bit nice to know I wasn’t missing out on going out since everyone was in the same “boat,” so to speak.

(Speaking of boats, we had enjoyed several cruises the past couple of years. I do hope we can enjoy that again some day in the not too distant future.)

Now we’re just past 11-3 (election day) which seems to be what the PANdemIC panic was really all about.  Everything has not been revealed to us publicly yet, but I’m so glad the unfolding will soon be happening bit by bit.

God continues to be faithful to us.  The sun rises every morning producing daylight, even when it is a rainy day.  We have all that we really need and best of all is faith in our creator.

The more quiet time has allowed for inward meditation.



How’s your diet going, Louise?

When I began a diet, my focus was on eating and losing.   Is it like that for you?

Now, I’m focusing on drinking and my new slim body!   Water, that is, and maybe not the mirror, but slim pictures of my new self!

I’m also tuning in to the timing in my own body to both utilize this product  that I found to help me be

successful.  And do you sometimes eat when you aren’t hungry at all?  

I did too. 

So far, the product works to curb hunger.  When I use one capsule and my daybreak or max coffee in the morning and

maybe a second beverage whenever I become really hungry.

I can control my urges to snack.

and at mealtime do you ever feel like you can’t stop eating?

I think this might help you if you are like I am.  Because now I really do not feel like eating more and more anymore!

Would it be the same for you?

I don’t know!

I can only suggest you try it and see!  Start small, then make your plan and see that it is helping a little, then add more choices and play around with a smart ship!  Once you too become a regular user,  the results can speak for themselves!

Why wait?

Do it now. 🙂

This is REALLY Embarrassing

Here we go again! How many diets have you tried?  These pictures actually scare me, because it is not how I view myself!  I think of myself as I was in my teenage and early twenties.  I was slim and had a very flat tummy!
I’m one of those people who buy magazines at the grocery checkout based on the before and after pictures, and I’m always concentrating on dieting.

Usually, I try the meal plan at least for a few days and decide if I like it or not. I do have a few that I go back to and I can count on dropping off a couple of pounds in a short while with them. Nothing has ever been something I could stick with in the past.

With this diet, my BIG motivation will be seeing these pictures that I am putting out here for anyone to see. This is what I don’t want to be looking or feeling like.

I’ll update you on my progress every few days. I’ll tell you if it is easy or not. Follow me if you’d like!


Are you working on a plan to become who you want to be too?
