Week 1: Diet – Eat Healthy


Regarding last week’s poll, approximately 25% of the 19 of you that answered have wishes, but no specific goals and another 15% do not even bother with setting goals. However, the remainder of you (60%) set specific goals that are objectively measureable.  In addition some of you in that 60% category also develop action plans to accomplish those specific goals and others even go so far as to monitor progress.

Next Monday’s posting will be on Exercise, so if you have ideas for a poll related to exercise, just leave a comment or send me an email at HarmonyBooksFlimsLLC@comcast.net



A guy walks into a restaurant and asks, “How do you prepare your chickens?”

The cook says, “Nothing special. We just tell ’em they’re gonna die.”



Most people put on extra weight starting from Thanksgiving through New Year’s and so one of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is I’m going to lose some weight this year. It is also one of the most commonly unfulfilled resolutions.

Please don’t be one of those people who keep eating the same way each year and yet hopes for a different result.  Another common mistake is to go on a crash diet.  Oh sure, you may initially lose some weight, but more than likely you will gain it back, plus a few addition pounds.  I would be skeptical of any diet that promises a loss of more than 1 or 2 pounds per week.

Remember, you are what you eat.  I recall saying that to a friend of mine and she replied, “In that case I am coffee and wine.”



“Associated with this weight gain are increased risks in adulthood for joint problems, angina, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes and, ultimately, premature death.”

As much as I would like everyone to read my self-help book,

My Final Cover


Below is one that I am particularly fond of when it comes to food.

Coffee is good for you

Though food is supposed to be one of life’s simple pleasures, few things cause more angst and confusion. Every day we are bombarded with come-ons for the latest diet, promises for “clinically proven” miracle ingredients, and warnings about contaminants in our favorite foods. It’s enough to give anybody indigestion.

Packed with useful-and surprising-information, Coffee Is Good for You cuts through the clutter to reveal what’s believable and what’s not in a fun and easily digestible way.

If any of you have a favorite self-help book on Exercise, please let me know about it via a comment to this post or email me.

If you have a favorite movie related to exercise, please let us all know about it via a comment to this post or email me.


I tried making this post valuable to you and hopefully if I have succeeded, you will pass it on to your friends and people you care about. And if you have suggestions on how I can make these Monday posts even more helpful to you, please let me know.

Thank you
