Honoring the miracle of the oil for eight days will foil any and all attempts to eat consciously as part of a healthy lifestyle, which is probably why Weight Watchers introduced a new diet plan this week in which all vegetables and fruit have no point value. This plan encourages dieters to achieve the five portions of fruit or vegetables per day recommended by the Department of Health.
Many people find inspiration in the television program: The Biggest Loser.
If you prefer a book, try Dr. Andrew Weil’s: Eight Weeks to Optimum Health. Weil suggests a healthier life style that brings more joy, strength and resilience by moving you into a diet based on whole grains, fruits, and vegetables based on his progressive Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid. He also offers suggestions such as drinking filtered water, focusing on organic produce; getting more sleep and exercise; and volunteering in your community.
