I made a mistake with my last blog post and I would like to apologize. Following the post, I was supposed to give you the formula for calculating how many teaspoons of sugar are in a food and I forgot. But, this week I will correct that blooper. Ok, so here goes: Grams of Carbohydrates… Continue reading I need to make amends.
Can I be honest here and tell you how much I love sugar? I know last week's post was all about the inflammation that is caused by too much sugar but I don't want anyone running around thinking I don't love the stuff as much as the next person. I love the taste of almost… Continue reading If sugar is so bad, why do I crave it so much?
I know I talk a lot about sugar but really, other than causing excessive weight gain that may lead to long term, life shortening disorders such as diabetes, is sugar really that bad? Yes, it is unequivocally that bad. At least in the way that we have it presented to us on a silver platter… Continue reading Sugar
My word, the Rocket Blog has been MIA for weeks now. I’d like to blame it on my current Covid infection but I have a better excuse(s). The first is that the Blog is in the process of making a move to another platform. It might still be some weeks off but don’t worry, I’ll… Continue reading What do you mean, I can’t taste?
I live in a relatively small town. 20 minute drive from one end to the other. No one has to be anywhere in a hurry unless it's for a medical emergency or fire. That does not stop stomp fool idiots from driving like they have to get to a head trauma stat. Weaving in and… Continue reading Rushing to nowhere
I tell my clients all the time to stop shoulding on themselves. Sounds a lot like sh*tting on yourself doesn't it? In essence it's the same thing. Hang with me now and let me explain. When was the last time you told yourself that you shouldn't have eaten something? Maybe it was this morning after… Continue reading Stop Shoulding On Yourself
I totally sing that word like I am Carly Simon. I mean if Carly Simon sang off key and knew more of the words. It's kind of weird how so many of my thoughts either start off as part of a song or end in a song. I can't remember what I did yesterday (thanks,… Continue reading Anticipation….
Do you know what pisses me off? When skinny people get on their high horse about how to lose weight. If you are one of those skinny people and reading this blog then do me a favor and don't give anyone struggling to lose weight advice. (For my skinny friends who are reading this blog… Continue reading It’s not a moral failing.
I made a huge mistake the other day. I gave The Freck a donut hole. Sometimes my prefrontal cortex is asleep at the wheel. Sugar lights up my brain so why did I think my dog's brain wouldn't be similarly affected? You might be thinking "how the heck does she know that?" and I'm fixin'… Continue reading Diving for donut holes…..
One of the reasons it’s so damn hard to get started losing weight is the fear of deprivation. Every diet I’ve tried in the past had something I loved that I had to give up. Do you know what happens to your brain when you have to give something up? The brain rebels, throws a… Continue reading The Abundance of Weight Loss
