Gas In Your Tank?

We are slowly emerging out of the depths of the dark/cold winter months. The sun is now setting well after 7 PM and the temperatures are starting to reach the 60’s and soon the 70’s will be commonplace in our area. For our neighbors south of us, they are already feeling those warmer temperatures. This provides an opportunity on a number of fronts to accelerate your weight control efforts.

One of the “tools” that is helpful in your quest to follow a high protein/low carb dietary plan is that gas grill sitting on your deck, driveway or patio. The grill is simple to turn on and the cooking surface provides lots of area to not only cook one meal, but also, grill up some additional protein for the upcoming lunch(s) or dinner(s).

Cooking on the gas grill also provides an opportunity to grill vegetables, and that winds up making the eating of vegetables more palatable for those that aren’t veggie fans (I am included in this group).

There are many cookbooks that provide really fun recipes for making those protein dishes taste great and actually, make them fun to cook. Additionally, being outside and enjoying the feel, sights and sounds is a heck of a lot more fun than being in your kitchen over a stove or oven.

So, this weekend, take that gas grill tank to the closest convenience store, pay the $20 bucks and get a full tank of gas for your grill. It is COOK OUT TIME!

Should You Rethink “Winging It”?

Even if you are not on a weight control journey, chicken wings most certainly provide a very unhealthy choice as an appetizer or meal. So, in answer to the question posed by the title: Should we ‘Wing It”? The answer is a resounding “NO”!!!

“THANK YOU”, and “L’Chaim”.

Although this will probably be posted at some later date, I am writing this entry on the morning of our 30th medical practice anniversary event. I want to raise my glass and say “THANK YOU”, and “L’Chaim”.

Do Individual Differences Matter?

The individual differences in response find their basis in genetic and environmental reasons. However, there are other factors involved as well. Success in long term weight control may require different approaches for different people.
