Semaglutide, an injectable drug made by the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, was approved […]
Horrors. I had no idea. Of course I had no idea, I didn’t weigh myself. Sure my clothes were a little snug, a lot snug, but that ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ mentality kept creeping in: the old procrastination trick so I can have today what I promise I won’t have tomorrow. THE LAST SUPPER – before […]
Can Your Fat Think! Does your fat have a brain? If it has nerve networks running through it, then yes. Can it make decisions? Where a nerve meets another nerve as in a tree, junctures I call them, decisions are made through the chemicals the nerves secret at the junctures (aka synapses). The chemical interaction […]
I hit the wall after about 4 hours of methodical mild to moderate activity – always with purpose, something I knew needed to be done, while simultaneously enhancing my environment. I’m in the perpetual motion of redesigning my living space – never satisfied with the way it looks or functions, always finding a better way. […]

Those who produced more equol […]
FFC ClipBoard: Of particular interest to me are the herbs and spices category listed in the top 10 Foods For Brain Health, seeings though I use a lot of them in my animal-free recipes. At 71 years old I take no medication, the spine doctor said “there’s nothing wrong with your memory” and I can […]
I’m not actually hungry. I’m in chronic pain, which my brain translates to my organism as being in danger, which reacts by signaling me to eat or drink or do both as the antidote or treatment.
That half pound attached to the 155.5 lb. reading on the scale this past Friday bothered me, so I weighed myself this morning (Monday) at 4:14 AM, even though my rule was to weigh-in only once a week on Fridays. Obviously I woke up feeling a little lighter, otherwise I wouldn’t have done it. So, […]
Use a mirror and a scale. Those are your two best friends when losing weight and getting fit. Looking at your face isn’t enough. Like many people, I don’t gain a lot of weight in my face, so according to my face I’m thin.
It’s not the feeling of hunger we need to shut off. We who are fat rarely ‘feel’ hungry. We think it. And right now the brain is more powerful than the gut in those who are overweight. We feel full nearly all the time. It’s when the level of full drops a slight amount that […]
Yes, making lists is a form of exercise – mental/brain and physical. For me, rarely if ever do I follow the list. It’s the making of one that motivates me to get going again. It doesn’t matter at what. One thing leads to another thing is the continuing motivating force that leads to success in […]
By Kate Kelland | LONDON Drinking even moderate amounts of alcohol is linked to changes in brain structure and an increased risk of worsening brain function, scientists said on Tuesday. In a 30-year study that looked at the brains of 550 middle-aged heavy drinkers, moderate drinkers and teetotallers, the researchers found people drank more alcohol had a greater […]
Not every day. It gets too old, too familiar, too fast. Break it up. Doing something every single day, at the same time in the same way creates a need for it. Rather than helping as designed or expected, it harms. Or it creates a resentment. Boredom sets up a mindset that affects how the […]
Boy, do I love a fat slice of pizza or three. When that meaty, cheesy, tomatoey aroma hits my nostrils and I see that greasy cardboard box open and reveal those glistening triangular slices, I know I’m going to have a hard time controlling myself. Put me in front of an unlimited supply and I […]
