The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Inflammation Information from You On A Diet

I'm learning about inflammation in You On A Diet.

I enjoy learning about my body. You On A Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management by Michael R. Roizen, M.D. And Mehmet C. Oz, provides me with loads of information. The authors speak in a conversational tone, with lots of jokes. I love the pictures that explain the functions of the body parts. They are humorous but very informative. It is worth taking a look at this book.

You On A Diet picture explains inflammation of the gut.

One of my concerns is inflammation within my body. This book addresses that situation. Basically, the doctors say that there are irritants in the form of allergens, toxins, bacteria, and stress that cause inflammation in the gut. Further, they consider the gut as the second brain in the human body.

Inflammation shows itself in the following symptoms: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and extra weight. Also, if you suffer with inflammation, then your body is not breaking down the foods you eat to convert it to energy. If you have low energy, you feel tired. If you have inflammation in your body, you remain fat.

This book also breaks the monotony of the information by including “You-reka” moments and “Myth Buster” signs. It is certainly entertaining, while it gives the information you need to get healthy.

At the end of the chapters, there are tests to check whether you have learned the pertinent information. “YOU TIPS!” are included in gray pages, and “factoids” are in squares on the margins.

Here are just a few of the topics actually discussed in the book:

--Exercise- that can be done in twenty minutes

--Supplement suggestions- turmeric, coenzyme Q10, and chromium picolinate, which can help metabolism

--Menu choices- for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time

--Recipes- include “What's in it for you?” listing the minerals and fat intake for each one

--Energy- how hormones affect your levels

--Metabolism- what is making it sluggish and how to optimize it

--Ideal Body- for most of us it will be when we were 18 years-old

--Your Emotions- how your feelings are tied to hunger

I believe that anyone trying to lose weight should read this book. It is informative, entertaining, and worth the money you spend buying it.

How about you, my readers? Are struggling with extra weight? Are you looking for answers as to why you cannot lose weight? Perhaps this book might answer some of your questions. I encourage you to read this book.

God bless you all with His peace, my beloveds.

This entry is part of my Medical Mondays series. Due to the Japanese turmoil, God saw fit to delay this entry and led me to post Wisdom Wednesdays' post this past Monday. Please forgive me.

On March 7th, I blogged about my desire to change up my diet.  I mentioned that I wanted to reread the book above.   To view that past entry, you can find it here:

  3. I need to check this book out, I know I have inflammation since I suffer from fibromyalgia, eczema, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and bowel issues. I would say I need this book! lol!

  4. Lynn,

    Thanks for visiting.

    Yes, this book is worth it. I'm going through the same symptoms. I hope you are able to get the book because it will give you a lot of information that your doctors probably won't tell you.

    Thanks for following me, too.

    God bless,

    Rebecca G.
