I’m not one to get into fire wars so in complete integrity, the part of the editorial (“Why Protein Isn’t Harmful to You”) that will go after Dr. Ornish wasn’t personally interesting if you ask me. However, this thought provoking op-ed piece reminded me once again of the need for a balanced, moderate approach to eating and the need for in-the-flesh, ongoing support in your bodyweight loss efforts. It hurts to be reminded never! Choose a moderate and healthy eating plan that you can continue over an extended period or — ideally — forever.
Protein is essential parts of our diet. In fact, it’s a proven successful approach to weight reduction that comes at a high price. For many individuals, it’s life saving. Yet it’s not easy nor instant, and the changes that come with it are hard for some people to handle.

That’s quite hard to ignore. Among my loved ones died of problems of diabetes after a hardcore battle of several years that saw her dropping both her legs, Death by diabetes is slow and painful. The study authors continue to suggest that 30 minutes/day of exercise is critical to longevity and health.
They also point out other recent studies that suggest even that amount of activity won’t necessarily counteract the negative effects of very long periods of sitting. This has been much in the news headlines lately, resulting in suggestions that we never sit longer than 20 minutes at a stretch. This is an extremely challenging goal to meet; I understand because I make an effort to keep it.
It would be instructive to just notice how long your stretches of sitting are currently. When you have a Jawbone or Fitbit or similar device, you can do: Just take a look at your data. If you do not have a task monitor, it would be easy enough to keep a notepad on your table or near your couch. Try wearing at least a basic pedometer and boost your steps every day, paying particular attention to very long periods of sitting.
It’s easy enough to do: I will focus on getting up during commercials after i watch TV at night which is when virtually all my sitting occurs. I am also going to make sure I get a minimum of 10,000/steps every day (even though ill!) which will help me accomplish the previous goal.
