Today’s topic on the “Michael Baison show” the topic will be about challenging relationships and the people who struggle with obesity. He said that it will be a very hot 3 hour show. He said it is going to get down and dirty particularity with women of color. Obesity can take 10 years off of your life. How do you tell someone you love that they are extremely overweight and should be reading the 50 pound challenge to lose weight? As quite as it is kept; I need to be watching my diet. I tend to tell my hubby he is extremely overweight but I no longer can fit into my size 4 gear. I am now a size 8 and I am short; you get the picture. Isn’t that like calling the kettle black. “Michael Baison show” will be a very interesting show to listen to today on my computer. The show starts at 3:00 – 7:00 PM. I am considering a raw diet. I need to change some of my own eating habits. Did you know that high blood pressure is one of the silent killers leading cause of death for women. I just got off the phone with my sister and she said she was going to get her blood tested today because she was long overdue. Getting your blood checked takes less than 5 minutes. The results will reveal if your at risk for a host of diseases like hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes. Again, disease such as these can be had by all races and cultures. You know each of us have our cultural food that we like to dive into, especially a sister like me, soul food is very good, tasty and fatty. When I get together on Thanksgiving dinner at a cousins house; we have all of the typical foods that are artery clogging. We be licking our fingers and all but no one is talking about their health. Time for me to have that speech with my cousin who host dinner every year that perhaps we might want to change the menu for a change and our health. Doing all types of fish, my favorite is Chilean sea bass and swordfish, broiled salmon, spinach salad with tons of green leafy vegetables and hard boil eggs with very light vinaigrette with side of blue cheese, pate and crackers, green tea to wash it all down and a very light dessert. I am hitting middle age status, but in my mind I am still 21 but my husband tends to tell me not a chance. Oh yeah, take a multivitamin if your not able to get all your veggies. Women should be taking iron tablets during their monthly because we lose a lot of blood during our menstrual cycle. Diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension has hit home with my relatives. Some of us are on medicine to control it too! I have personally seen 2 relatives have their limbs (leg cut above the knee) amputated and lost of eyesight in one eye with the other eye slowly dwindling away the vision in that eye. These diseases are really that serious but some of us continue to live in denial. Start by going to get a blood test and watch the movie on this website “Simply Raw” Reversing Diabetes. If your results have any disease, moniter it quarterly to make sure your on medicine. You can have a heart attack or a struck out of the blue; tha would not be cute. It may change your mind or you might think it doesn’t apply to you because you don’t have any health issues and you eat properly. The days of having a donk donk behind, extra weight on your body fram and beer bellies are not cute; they are premature signs that your on the course for borderline diabetes.
My family eat at a local joint called “Chef Lin Buffet” located at 417 A South Street, Frederick, MD 21701. They served the food you see in the picture in this post. Other items on the menu include sushi, stir fry bar, all kinds of fried food, vegetable, Chinese desserts, fruit, soft drinks and beer.
