Does diet make you have different outlook on life?

1: A healthy diet goes a long way in making your body function correctly. Eating a diet too high in acidic foods (starches and meats) and not enough alkaline foods (fruits and vegetables) leads to blood acidity and this makes the body function poorly and not heal well. Eating a good balanced diet with fresh foods helps with your brain and keeps you feeling good. You may be surprised! ...Read more

Are diet sodas worse than regular sodas for your health?

Not as bad!: From tooth enamel-just as bad. From a weight perspective, much better. Diet drinks can fool the brain into making you feel hungry, but they contain no sugar, nor do they increase Insulin production like non-diet. They also do not cause a sugar burn-and crash phenomena which really drives hunger. They should be drunk at a minimum. The sodas with phosphoric acid (coke.Dr. Pepper) bad for teeth! ...Read more

Hello. I want to improve my health with a heathy diet and an activ lifestyle.  What kind of diet and activities do you suggest?

Congratulations: On choosing a healthier lifestyle. Most successful people in this group start with one or two small changes and continue adding. They may start walking or running a bit more each day. They may substitute a salad for a full meal or fruit for a snack. These changes add up and aren't as difficult to track or manage everyday. Mine is less red meat and substituting chicken or fish. Good luck. ...Read more

What do you think about primal/paleo diets?

Love Them: If you don't have any major medical problems, or you have been told by your doc that it's ok for you to start this kind of diet, i believe they work great. The medical community is starting to realize that our belief that carbs are an essential part of our diets is not entirely correct. I have personally lost 40 lbs on this type of diet, and feel great. Blood sugar and cholesterol have improved. ...Read more
