      Hi Norma,

      Yes, if we are struggling with health problems how can we focus on other aspects of our life in a productive way.

    Informative post! The protein/carb combination you have suggested is interesting and healthy as well. Can you possibly interchange them, like apples and eggs together?

      Hi Lorii,

      Yes, by all means you can eat apples and eggs together. The apples give you immediate energy as a carb allowing the energy from the eggs as a protein to be used for longer term energy. This method helps people use the calories wisely for energy rather than storing them as fat. It also prevents them from getting hungry for a longer period of time as well as keeping their blood sugar more stable.

      Stay healthy, Pat

    Thank you for simplicity and easy to use information.  I love the tips you offer.  I just bought my first loaf of sprouted spelt bread – pretty tasty, but I need to remember to read the list of ingredients.  Time to get out the tape measure and get healthy too.

      Hi Marvia,

      We love the sprouted grain breads. When we eat the unsprouted breads it takes more for us to feel satisfied.. there’s just not much to them. Glad you like my health tips. Good luck on the tape measure process;-)

      Stay healthy, Pat

    This is a very informative post Pat.  My grandfather had diabetes, and my mother has been told that she has signs of it.  When I was growing up, nutrition wasn't a huge thing, and I ate so much fast food when I was in college.  My pant size has doubled since high school, and I know it's something I need to work on.  I've recently looked into easing into a raw food diet to start a better nutrition.

      Take care of yourself, no one else cares more.

    I always learn something new when I read your articles, Pat! Your suggestions of balancing the ratio of carbs/proteins is super helpful – it's something I hadn't known to do. I think I'm doing okay according to the criteria you listed at the top, but my waistline is certainly a good 4-inches greater than when I was in high school. Just this morning I was thinking about that… your article is a great motivation for change – thanks, Pat!

      Hi Susan,

      Knowing you I am sure you are doing a good job with your food and lifestyle choices. The growing waistline is a very common event as we grow older yet it can be reduced with proper food choices and staying active. One thing I have experienced is that I have had to reduce the amount I eat at each snack and meal time. I very seldom overeat and feel so much better with that decision. Glad to have given you some motivation to tackle that waistline.

      God bless your efforts, Pat

    You've raised a very important point, Pat. Recently when I took my senior citizen Mom to a series of doctors for second opinions related to her arthritis, they all insisted on a blood sugar test. The results were normal and I only figured it out when I read an article in the leading local newspaper about the rise of Diabetes amongst the population and especially the elderly, and yes, it does not necessarily have to be hereditary. So apart from cholestrol watch, we are now looking at other health enhancing steps. Luckily, there is no need for an operation for the arthritis but I did learn a lot!

      Hi Vatsala,

      So happy your Mom does not have Diabetes. It is on the rise but can usually be avoided with a common sense lifestyle and proper nutrition. I do hope your Mom’s arthritis is not too bad without having to take lots of pain/anti-inflammitory meds. I have a touch of arthritis but take vitamin C, Calcium and Salmon Oil Plus to help keep it manageable. Let me know if I can direct your mother in her supplement choices. I am a senior citizen, age 70 so have experience in the aging process.

      Stay healthy, Pat

    I love reading your health articles, Pat. I've always wondered about how the glycemic system worked and now you've explained it brilliantly. Since I began eating small "fuelings" every 2 1/2 – 3 hours while awake my blood sugar has leveled out, my energy is up and I've dropped 54 pounds. Now I understand why…keep sharing these health tips, they may just save someones life one day.

      Hi Carla,

      It always helps to understand how what and when we eat affects things like blood sugar. I used to struggle with low blood sugar but since getting involved in NeoLife, my nutritional supplement company I have very seldom had a problem. I’ve used our protein shakes since 1985. They are formulated to use the protein sparing formula which keeps a more stable glycemic response. As you know my goal is to help people improve their health with my blog. Eating often has obviously been good for you.. it works well for me as well.. it helps to keep your blood sugar more stable especially if you eat protein.

      Thanks for visiting and sharing your experience.

      Stay healthy, Pat

      Hi Mindy,

      I am available to help you get your waist and weight under control. Two years ago when I was age 68, I dedicated time and knowledge to seriously doing just that. I wasn’t in the danger zone yet but was gradually getting close. I am not almost 30 pounds lighter and feel so wonderful. How about signing up for my Free 10 Day Challenge to Better Health? It has the basics of how I lost that 30 pounds and got into better physical shape. Here is the link: http://www.bestrealhealth.com

      Let’s get started and do it. I’ll be by your side.

      Hi Ernestine,

      It is pretty interesting how age makes us more nutrition and health conscious.

      Just a side note, my mother’s middle name is Ernestine. She was named after one of her uncle’s who was named Ernest.

      Stay aware.

      Hi Alexandra,

      I know you are so very health aware. It is interesting how sometimes it takes a health scare to get us on track as far as how we take care of what we eat and our physical fitness.

      Keep up the good work.

        Hi Alexandra,

        Yes, it takes patience, will power and a whole lot of love.. for oneself to make the right food choices as well as lifestyle choices. I just simply to not buy junky low nutrient dense foods.. not having it in the house makes a huge different for me.

        Take care of yourself, Pat

      Rob,

      Sorry you are having the battle of the waistline. Actually I no longer have that 24 inch waistline I used to have either but in the last year and half I’ve gotten it back in line with a 70 year old grandma within 4 to 5 inches of the 24. More than likely people would not think you are sick if you were back within a few inches of high school days!

      Be healthy for your long term life.

      Pat
