Be Good to Your Heart

What does one believe: low fat diet or not?  The truth is that obesity had its highest rise when Americans were obsessed with the fat free diet.  To be honest, I was promoting it myself many years ago.  Nutrition is a science.  Science is research based.  The more we study and observe, the more we know.  You just have to go with the most up to date knowledge that is out there from a legitimate source.  Visit www....

A New Year’s Resolution for You

                One of my favorite hobbies is organizing!  I just love it.  Something you may not know about me is that I am a member of NAPO; The National Association of Professional Organizers.  I have everything in my house labeled in bins.   Organization is a necessity in my house with a husband and son with ADHD.  I think I have it too, just never diagnosed.  I don’t know how we would all be able to function without...

The journey to “just right.”


Though various authors receive partial credit, it is widely assumed that Robert Southey gave the world “Goldilocks and the three bears” in 1837.  For those who don’t remember, it is the story of a young girl who wanders in to the home of three bears and finds that one bowl of porridge is too hot and one is too cold but that fortunately “one is just right.”  Similarly, when Goldilocks tires she finds that one bed is too long and one bed is too...

Happy Holidays!

Make your list and check it twice.  If you have lots of lean protein & colorful fruits and vegetables on your list then you are off to a great start.  We all know food is in abundance during the holidays and I don’t mean those I listed above.  I have come to the realization that the season of overeating  and less healthy foods has extended throughout the year.  This gives new meaning to spreading holiday cheer.  But it is true.  There are so many...

November Notes


As Abraham Maslow said in his essay The Psychology of Science "I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail."   Maslow first said this in 1966.  Not much has changed in the ensuing half-century.

The first Saturday of October I attended a Sleeve Gastrectomy course in Washington, DC.  The course was taught...

To Journal or not to Journal

Has anyone ever had that terrible guilty feeling after eating a not so healthy food?  I think as a dietitian I feel double the guilt.  Let’s say I had a chocolate bar, which happens on occasion.  First, I know that really wasn’t a healthy choice (especially with my background and education!).  Secondly, I feel like a hypocrite because I tell people all the time not to eat those types of foods.  Then, I remind myself that we...

The Foliage Changes and So Can You

Just as the leaves fall from the trees the-pounds can fall from your body and the inches from your waistline.  Obviously it doesn’t happen just because the air gets cooler and the wind starts to blow, but there is no reason that you can’t lose weight all year long and there is no better time than fall to do it.

As many of you know and have often heard, I constantly preach the mantra “good food, less of it, and more exercise.”  All summer long...

Fall Fun

Autumn is my favorite time of year!  There are so many wonderful, healthy activities you can do in the fall. 

Hike at Blue Hills or on any of the hundreds of nature paths in your area.  If you can’t think of any, go to this website as plug in your town.  The site will share many wonderful walking paths in your vicinity:

September Blog

Summer is now coming to an end.  I hope you enjoyed yourself.  I had a busy summer with the kids tubing, kayaking, biking and surfing.  I also spent much of my time training for an October marathon.  I know many of you have been running as well.  I don’t expect everyone to become a runner because the sport can be hard on the body and is not for everyone.  Running is definitely not enjoyable for anyone initially, but can become a source of enjoyment and loved physical...

May-the month of Mother’s Day


What entitles me to write about mothers?

Well-for starters I have an amazing mother and my wife is a fabulous mother to my sons.  90% of my patients are female and probably 50% of them are mothers.  I’ve had a chance to observe quite a few mothers over the years and I have a few thoughts on the subject.  While I started by talking about mothers I am talking about fathers too.  This is really an essay about...
