As I sit here contemplating my lunch (tuna sandwich w/ lettuce, tomato and black olives) I wanna see a show of hands….how many of you have gained more than 5 pounds during this damn pandemic and still haven’t been able to shed em? I know my weight has fluctuated 5 to 10 lbs. for sure over the last 12 months. Now I’ve changed my diet a lot for health reasons and to watch my weight because that old metabolism just doesn’t handle my intake the way it use to. Back in the day I could eat and drink anything I wanted and I’d loose 2 pounds. Ya get to your 40’s and all of a sudden a lot things change! Waist lines and weight gain right at the top of the list. I do a January cleanse w/no alcohol, no pasta, no bread, no sweets and that has had some positive affects, but who the hell wants to live like that 24/7 365? Certainly not me. Diets are a pain and mostly they don’t work or don’t have lasting affects. So when I saw this article about the author who’s written a couple of books on dieting and food, I thought I’d share.

In his new book, Just Eat: One Reporter’s Quest for a Weight-Loss Regimen That Works.
