Mark Bittman and Dr Mark Hyman are Right: Skinny Green Smoothies can save

http://amzn.to/1viHXq3

 

It’s pretty clear that cow farts are killing mankind. It’s not the cows’ fault: They can and will fart any time they want. It’s fair.

 But agribusiness has grown as population and economy and marketing have grown and all those cow farts, rising together, have taken a big toll on our atmosphere and thus the health of human beings on the planet.

 That’s not to say that other animals aren’t contributing to this gaseous cloud. I’m sure the recent obsession with bacon has led to more pig farts and the fate of the planet is tied to the will of free markets. Are goats sending up information to this new cloud over Earth? What of horses, donkeys and camels? Maybe even the family dog is in on this mess.

 Then that pesky gaseous animal – the worst of them all – enters upright and revs his or her SUV and slips it into first. Groceries are bought and brought home, and the carbon footprint grows larger and larger. Forgotten milk and Jim’s favorite Hatch Chili Dusted Tortilla Chips were forgotten, so you go back: You, my dear, are an anti-Earth perfectionist.

 Car exhaust IS our giant contribution to the cow fart overhead, that and factories approved by the EPA. (I just couldn’t help that bitchy aside.) We plan poorly, overuse, and screw up our relationship with the greatest friend we ever had, Mother Earth.

 As Mark Bittman of The New York Times (Mr. Influencer) suggests, if we’d just eat one meal a day without meat some of this fart-petroleum exhaust cloud would dissipate.

 Why not pick breakfast or lunch as your vegetarian moment? Save some meat for day’s end and more time to chew at the table.

Change How Your DNA Metabolizes Fat: Skinny Green Smoothies as Self-Love

Somehow, the image above lurks just beyond the consciousness of many women. We are not her, but we are afraid of being her. Maybe she’s inside us just DYING to pop out. 

She’s not. I swear. I am a woman in the middle of her life and have never had a better body. I actually am much better looking in my 50s than in my 20s, when I was a model. 6’2″ and coming in at 130. Then I ballooned to over 200. Then I came back down to 160. Then, my weight shot to….well, you get the idea.

I got a real career (modeling = free money) and started learning some facts about health. My guru (everybody needs one, baby!) is Dr. Mark Hyman http://www.drhyman.com. He told me that eating certain ingredients had an impact on your health in the next minutes, hours, days, and years. He told me that eating the right foods literally gave your body instructions to activate DNA that burns fat faster. Keep eating those ingredients and your DNA will continue to receive the signals, ultimately changing over to the new, faster fat-burning system. You literally change your body’s structure, your DNA. 

I started drinking green smoothies and darned if it didn’t work. A month into writing and testing the cookbook, my pimples cleared and that last annoying ring of waist fat fell away. Sure I was working hard but I felt balanced, calm and <gasp!> HAPPY.  That’s the real payoff: the way you feel about you.
