Default Some Helpful Hints . . .

Just thought I'd post a link to a good little article from the current issue of the D:Life Bulletin that I receive every week. D:Life is basically for Diabetics, but there is no "rule" that says everybody can't benefit from some of the information.

This article is about making healthier substitutions that will lower both the carb content and calories of some old favourites . . .
http://www.dlife.com/dLife/do/ShowCo...thy_swaps.html . . .

Hope you enjoy the information . . . and hope that you will feel free to post other helpful information in this thread from time to time . . .

Have a great moving and shaking day, everybody . . .

Hi Linda!

I checked for the link and it said "Page not Found". Could you check it again? I'd really like to read that article! Thanks!

Woke up this morning to find this little gem waiting in my e:mail and thought I would share it with you all . . .

It's called "The Snack Food Hall of Shame". Very enlightening information about some of those wonderful things we all wish we could eat . . . but the thing I liked the most was the alternative recipe links . . . some of them sound really, good.

http://www.everydayhealth.com/photog...shame.aspx?p=1

Enjoy . . .

PS -- thought I'd turn this into STICKY so it would be handy for future reference. We can all add to it from time to time, when we come across something valuable.

Here's a list of 100 ways to cut 100 calories from Prevention Magazine's on-line newsletter. Not really a lot of new information in here, but handy to have it all together in one place, just the same.

http://www.prevention.com/100calorie...ries%20a%20Day

Hope the day is treating you well . . .

Another source of interesting information to which I belong is called 50Plus . . . they have picked up on the article in the June issue of Consumer Reports which has ranked the top Diet Plans and Diet Books . . . here is a link to the article on 50Plus . . .

http://www.50plus.com/display.cfm?li...cumentID=18263

BTW . . . as mentioned in the article and specified in the original Consumer Reports article . . . what determined whether an item was in the Plans Section or the Books Section was the depth of the research behind the plan/book . . . Plans are backed up by a plethora of verifiable research and clinical trials . . . Books are not, although the information in them is considered to be nutritionally sound.

After giving the actual rankings, the article goes on to list general diet related information that was also included in the Consumer Reports review.

Enjoy . . .

Thought you might like to read this article about Sleep Disorders . . . http://www.everydayhealth.com/public...9-24f31b1fd806 . . .

Unfortunately some sleep problems are much more common for those of us who are carrying too much weight -- especially if that weight is abdominal.

Have a good day (and a restful night) . . .

Oh wow . . . who among us doesn't relate to the Stress/Weight connection?

Anyway . . . another article from D:Life that is definitely not just of interest to Diabetics.

Wow . . . I just discovered a terrific new (to me) website for those of us who have 'reached that certain age group' . . . lots of great information . . . I especially like all the hints about fitness, but the entire site looks good. Hope everybody finds something of interest on there.

. . . http://agingwell.state.ny.us/fitness/index.htm . . .

Have a great day, gang . . .
