|That's what DH calls the farmers diet. His grandparents were dairy farmers in Kentucky, they would eat like that. Much more healthy.
Lucky for me I don't drink soda pop, mostly just water. My problem would probably be that I don't drink enough of it, but I'm trying! I quit making coffee at work, I just bring a travel mug for in the car. I go right to the water cooler. With weight watchers, you are allowed so many points per day, according to your height, weight & age, and then there's a weekly hunk o' points in case you need them. Fruits and veggies are free, for the most part. There's a few that aren't. The points for food are based on calories. Carbs and sugar adds points, protein takes away points. They say to eat your allotted points every day to keep your metabolism going.
My chiropractor is all over me (literally and figuratively ) about eating slowly. He's into holistics and vitamins and all things healthy and actually massages my stomach and intestines when I go there. He said my stomach was all bunched up (I eat fast) and to slow down and chew my food to a pulp. Swallowing rocks of food is tough on the stomach, and on the intestines as well. I try to make a conscious effort to do that, but sometimes forget..
All in all, over the past 3 weeks I've found myself making smarter food choices - do I want to spend those points on 5 chips or 18 pretzels? (as an example)
I have skinny cow triple choco pops in my freezer! I love them!
Hi Mary! Welcome to our camp! So sorry about your plants, if you find you're in need of something let us know. I have lots of stuff that needs dividing. By the way, I have an NOID daylily my SIL gave us that we divided. It has pretty purple blooms and is one of the meatier ones. The term escapes me - diploid and ?? ??
Have a great day, I'm off to do a little reading on the Kings of England. I'm up to Richard II (1377).
