Large lady doesn’t need to be reminded of it by others.

Let’s leave that as a true statement.

Then let’s turn it around.  When people look at you, what is their first impression?   Is it, big mama?  Huge guy? Or is it, now there’s someone I could ask about nutrition and health and they would know not just from education but from experience.

Walmart Enters The Organic Food Fight With New Affordable Product Line – Consumerist

Organic food is getting a bit of a makeover. Retail giant Walmart is joining forces with a one-time organic food powerhouse to offer the increasingly popular fare at more affordable prices for consumers.Starting this month Walmart and Wild Oats are teaming up to sell a new line of organic food that is at least 25% cheaper than national organic brands, the Associated Press reports.“We are removing the premium associated with organic groceries,” Jack Sinclair, Wal-Mart’s executive vice president of grocery, tells the AP.And that appears to be the case when looking at Walmart-provided comparisons of the new Wild Oats product offerings versus national brands. Wild Oats’ 6-ounce can of tomato paste is priced at $.58, compared to a national brand organic version priced at $.98. A 32-ounce can of Wild Oats’ chicken broth sells for $1.98, while a national organic brand sells their product at $3.47.

This looks like a GREAT THING.  Be watching.  Would you use organic if it cost almost the same as conventional?  Wow.

And it’s a great sign that there’s extreme Walmart customer interest in organic. That’s heartland sentiment, not Whole Foods shoppers.

Digital Bracelet Company May End Up In Court After Rash Reports « CBS Minnesota

The Fitbit Force is a digital bracelet that measures your physical activity and sleep patterns, but it left some consumers with scars.

Now the company may end up in court.

Sort of confusing …. they’ve already done a voluntary recall for refund … and it’s not certain what percentage of users were affected.  We’re also mystified as to how one nurse at one medical practice actually saw 30 Fitbit Force users come in with the issue.  That’s surprisingly more people than you’d expect to have this device in the first place.

Get outside!

White Castle chicken waffle

VERY OCCASIONALLY we give you something to eat when you’re having one of those Intentionally Off Plan meals.

This is one of those.

Two sweet waffles imported from Belgium.

Fried chicken breast.

Chicken gravy.

Bacon.

It is indescribably good.  It’s 490 calories and available 24×7 so it would count as a DINNER item if it’s all you eat.  Actually not too bad there.

Bacon is the next lobster – You won’t be able to afford it | Savings.com

Who’s to blame for the drastic increase in bacon prices? You are. You with your triple bacon cheeseburger. You with your bacon sundae.

Actually the things the writer totally missed are:

(1) The cost of producing meat continues to climb — the retail price continues to spiral upward — but the profit to the farmer continues to fall to make it not financially viable to produce meat — so the cost increases more.

(2) As long as we keep dumping so much of our production into corn for ethanol to add to gas, the cost of corn for livestock feed will continue to go up and up.

Green Coffee Bean Extract Exposed: Another So-Called “Miracle Fat Burner” Makes The Hall of Shame

Make July my month and yours! Not just another...

It shocks me how many people will pop over-the-counter pills blindly without safety even crossing their minds. It’s a common belief that if something makes it onto a health food store shelf or is natural, it must be safe, but in fact, this is part of the naturalistic fallacy. Plants and other naturally-occurring substances can be poisonous. They can also be beneficial or neutral in low doses but harmful in a high dose. Individual tolerance may vary as well, as some people have allergies, take meds or have medical conditions.

Stick with intake control and output maximization.
