Broccoli Sprouts: Miracle Cure for Gut Bug.

We now know, thanks to a report in Cancer Prevention Research, that THREE DAY-OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS suppress Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infections, one of the most common bacterial infections worldwide that cause stomach cancer.
While the protective effects of sulforaphane, a phytochemical from broccoli, have been known for almost two decades, the report shows for the first time the life-saving effect of broccoli in humans.
The study showed that THREE DAY OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS contained 20 times the concentration of sulforaphase glucosinolate found in mature broccoli.
Please note: I said, THREE DAY-OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS. While broccoli, in it of itself, is rich in cancer fighting agents, evidence suggests that to substantially reduce the risk of cancer, one must eat broccoli in large quantities. Certain young broccoli sprouts, grown under standardized conditions, on the other hand, contain large and highly uniform quantities of the compound.
Where does one buy THREE DAY OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS?

Poetry Month: Love. Loss. God, my co-pilot.

Click to Mix and Solve
This week’s Our Lady of Weight Loss ART was inspired by the poem ‘Yesterday’ written by Cody Walker. Walker’s book “Shuffle and Breakdown“, combines a pinch of Walt Whitman with a dash of Richard Pryor. Readers can expect to be pulled in many wonderful directions.
Here is a taste …
Yesterday
by Cody Walker

I had the thought to create an elixir
(or really, a conjuring agent) in a giant mixer –
enough to summon a ghoul or two,
so that I might stop obsessing about you.
God, my co-pilot,
told me to file it
under “Ridiculous Ideas I’ll Soon Regret.”
But nothing else has worked, yet.

The Weight Loss HAIKU Challenge

Haiku, a traditional form of Japanese poetry, is a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. In Japanese, this convention is a must, but in English, which has variation in the length of syllables, this can sometimes be difficult.
In other words, do your best.
Weight Loss Haikus help to melt away the pounds, because your mind is so occupied with the 5, 7, 5 thing, there’s absolutely no room for food to enter the picture. And, dig it, thinking is an energy consuming activity!
1 hour of thinking, sitting or standing burns 110 calories!
Here follows one of my favorite Weight Loss Haikus (by me :). I worked for hours and hours and melted at least 1/4 pound of excess weight on this one!
Celery and dip
Over my lips. A clean crunch.

Kathy Ireland: Overweight. Overwhelmed.

Top model, former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl, Kathy Ireland, plumped up and packed on 25 pounds “without even knowing it! ”
Kathy, like HOLA! I gained 3 pounds last month and could tell immediately; as soon as my ‘love muffin’ (more than just a top) came peaking out and then tumbling over my very tight jeans.
Still, I get your point. You stopped taking care of yourself and went into denial. Your mind was so cluttered with business matters and family matters that you didn’t matter. And, I’m guessing here, that you did, indeed, have some idea that you were gaining weight – one can only blame the dry cleaners for shrinking their clothes for so long and 25 pounds is the equivalent to three sizes (8 pounds per size) – but ‘it’ spiraled a tad out of control, so you buried your feelings in food, and jumped another size. You were on the “downward spiral. ”
Nevertheless, you turned it around, got it together, didn’t you? You reached out to a nutritionally sound friend. Smart! Support is key! You learned from it; and have made it a part of your story (a talking point for your new book – Real Solutions for Busy Moms). You are now on the “upward spiral.”
Busy moms (busy women) take care of everyone else first; from the kids to their partners, their significant other, spouse, job, boss, family member, community obligations, friends and goodness knows what else/who else.
And Kathy’s photo in People Magazine told her tale. When you put everyone before yourself and stop paying attention to your own needs, stop doing the things that you love to do, stop connecting to yourself, you effectively don’t exist. You’ve lost your identity.
I’m BIG on real conversations and would love to have one with Kathy Ireland. Here’s how I’d kick-start the gab-fest.
Kathy, how specifically are you taking care of yourself; putting yourself first? When Oprah spoke of her personal battle with weight on her TV show, she said that she was taking care of herself first by putting exercise on her calendar. Sorry, that doesn’t cut it for me. Yes, put exercise on the calendar! Great idea. I’m curious to know, how will you nurture your soul? Stay connected to your core being?
Your goal, praise be, is NOT to schedule a bikini- appearance on Oprah. Rather, your goal to be healthy, to be there for your husband and your children. What does that look like, exactly? I’d love to hear more because that’s such a pat answer, and I suspect you are deeper than sound bytes.
Kathy, write me; let’s talk!
Note to Our Lady of Weight Loss fans: Those three pounds I gained merely visited; they did NOT move back in!
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
Janice
