United Airlines: Double Your Fat, Double Their Pleasure.

Fat Suit.jpg
United Airlines is the latest airline to jump on the anti-fat bandwagon and penalize their overweight passengers by charging them, should they not fit ‘comfortably’ into one seat, for two seats! They say that they are doing this because they received 700 complaints last year about overweight passengers.
In my capacity as someone who knows the ‘overweight’ landscape well, as an ‘ex-fatty’ (50 pounds permanently removed 8 years ago), author of two best-selling weight loss books, seminar leader and Life & Wellness Coach, I have a few questions for United Airlines and the other carriers who have adopted this two-seats/two-faced policy.
What other complaints have you received in the past year, and how many? Has no one mentioned the delays, cramped seating (no matter your size), or poor food choices? I’d like to see a full report on complaints.
You say that your criteria for double charging is, “if a passenger cannot close the arm rest, or cannot fasten the seat belt with and extension.” Given that 34% of Americans are obese, might you consider making the seats larger?
What if you still receive complaints about those who manage to ‘fit in’ their seats, but nevertheless, a bulge or a ripple of fat ungulates across the divide? Where will you draw the line or the tape measure?
Will you have a “model” at the gate, as you have a display/image of what size luggage constitutes a carry-on?
You penalize overweight people yet you offer no real healthy choices when distributing your peanuts, snack bars, cookies, et al. Why not offer fresh fruit?
Instead of adding to the problem, creating even more of a stigma for those who are over-weight, why not become a part of the solution? Partner with Life & Wellness Coaches, fitness centers, nutritionists alike. Offer frequent flyer miles to those who create healthy lifestyles. Dedicate a section of your flight magazines to health education.
Step up to the healthy plate and make a real difference.

Emotional Eating ALERT!!!! YOU Deserve … Cake? Comfort? Love?

People tell me that they “deserve” cake, or a burger or fries, or a binge. They tell me that they have had a stressful day and “deserve” to, in effect, go hog wild!
When you use food to comfort yourself, as a source of friendship and love, or as entertainment, you are actually denying yourself what you truly deserve.
A client told me that she loves to come home after a difficult day at work and squirrel away into the quiet corner of her family room, with a sugared-up coffee and donut.
I asked her, “What does this do for you?” “What are you looking for?” … she realized that she was looking for a calm corner to relax. She deserved to relax. She deserved to love herself; to find comfort in a comfortable chair and take in deep breaths. She deserved to let go of the day. She deserved to embrace her feelings and herself.
Before you give into the ‘devil’s food’ and this type of ‘false idol’ thinking (yes, food is a false idol; worship something on a higher plane, please), please take a moment to pause, reflect and observe.
Ask yourself, “What will this food give me?” “What am I looking for?” “Is there something I need more than food?” Identity the real need.
YOU, my friend, DESERVE (weigh) BETTER!
Please … tell me: What do YOU really deserve?
End the insanity NOW:

The Pineapple Cure: One Secret Ingredient that YOU Need!

pineapple2.jpgGlory Be! This Beliefnet Blogger is thrilled to report that pineapples, although available year-round, are hitting their sweet peak right now and will continue to do so through early summer!
Pineapples are juicy, delicious and good for you, too. They are loaded with fiber, manganese (a mineral that helps with digestion), and vitamin C, which is helpful when fighting colds and coughs.
Pineapples also contain an anti-inflammatory enzyme called Bromelain. (Ah yes, the secret, restorative ingredient that YOU really do need; don’t you?)

Bromelain helps to:

  • Reduce inflammation and swelling,

  • Strengthen bones,
  • Reduce symptoms associated with sinusitis,
  • Alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis,
  • Promote the healing of injuries (including sprains and strains),
  • Lessen post-operative swelling, and
  • Relieve Indigestion.

Pineapple facts!

  • A pineapple will NOT ripen or get any sweeter after picking.

  • Hawaiian pineapples are picked at their maximum ripeness; therefore the sooner they are eaten, the better.
  • If you don’t plan to eat the pineapple right away, store it in your fridge.

Pineapple Myths:

  • Select a plump and fresh looking pineapple.

  • Contrary to popular belief, the COLOR is not a sign of maturity or ripeness. The pineapple could be ripe, even if it is green on the outside.
  • Ease in pulling out leaves from the crown is NOT a sign of ripeness or good quality (oh my, I am always pulling the leaves!).
  • Bigger does not mean better tasting!

How to Pick YOUR Pineapple:

  • Choose a plump and fresh looking pineapple.

  • Fresh green leaves in the crown are a good sign.
  • The body should be firm, but not too firm!
  • And definitely NOT soft!

My Mother advises … “If you want to ensure that your pineapple is sweet …”
… preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Please pineapple on tray (in its original form) and baked for 15 minutes or until soft.
The heat brings the sugar out.
True enough! Thanks, Mom
