Go Brown...

I've had several people tell me about Weight of the Nation including a friend who immediately started eating better and exercising again. I thought that I wouldn't be able to see Weight...until it came out on DVD but I went looking for the trailer and found out that you can watch it online. Thank you HBO...

I'm watching the first part, Consequences, right now and having major buffering issues. At first, I thought it was my computer but Netflix is streaming just fine.

So far, I like the man who said that the kind of food that we eat is the kind of food that's most profitable. I was on Twitter earlier in the day and someone had a similar sentiment and tweeted that the foods you see advertised on TV are not the ones you want to eat.

A doctor told his patient with a new diagnosis of high blood pressure and borderline diabetes to go brown. He told her no more white rice, potatoes or white bread but, instead, to incorporate wheat pasta, wheat bread etc.

Can't wait to watch the rest and hope the whole buffering situation straightens out.

Also saw this video on NBC Nightly News about height loss in women. Since I'm 5'3, I have no interest in losing height so I'll just keep on keeping on.

  1. Great post! I like the statement idea that the healthy stuff doesn't need promoting...it's true, you never see commercials for carrots or apples!

  2. Thanks Cindy...

    Re: carrots or apples, I thought about that too.
