Quote of the Day

Only YES is YES!

No means NO, and only Yes means YES!  It's that simple!

Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

“If you’re like most women, you probably rate your eating habits, somewhere between “really good” and “pretty good”. According to a Gallup poll conducted by Weight Watchers, and the American Dietetic Association, 90 percent of women think their diets are reasonably healthy.

Almost all of them are delusional.” That is a direct quote from the first paragraph in the book “10 Habits That Mess Up a Woman’s Diet” by Elizabeth Somer. That quote has had a profound effect on me in the last 3 years. Are we delusional, as she suggests?

Check out the Diet Statistics that Kerry put together on her Healthy Diet Habits and see if you agree!
