Are the holidays over already? Well, yes. But what remains for many of us are the extra pounds packed on from Thanksgiving to the New Year holiday. Darn.
I came across this podcast, and found it interesting to hear from a chef…who is also a doctor who advises:
- how to avoid future holiday pounds
- how women can help men address their health
- how to use delicious food as medicine
- how to lose those holiday pounds using four helpful tips
John La Puma, a chef and doctor, talks with Joe and Terri Graedon of The People’s Pharmacy of how to celebrate any holiday season on this podcast.
One major point is that you have to plan not to fall into the trap of gaining weight. Planning is hard. And that is the very reason why you need to plan. What a conundrum! You will find some other gold nuggets within this podcast such as; drink your three liters of citrus water early in the day because your brain has a hard time telling the difference between when you are hungry and when you are thirsty.
I hope you will have a chance to check out this podcast. Afterwards, send it to a friend to help support him or her in their health endeavors.
