Anyone who knows Tony and I know that we are pretty health conscious and have both lost a significant amount of weight. Usually the first questions is "how did you do it?" No big secret there. We are always willing to spout out how we did it! We have taken on a low carb lifestyle. I was just reading in a Consumer Reports, On Health magazine that there is now a new rule for Carbs: If it's white, don't bite.

" "Bad" carbs are generally white in color. Think: Sugar, white flour, white bread. If you avoid bad carbs you may reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and weight gain."Good" Carbs come from fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eat "good" Carbs to keep your cholesterol level healthy...your blood pressure and blood sugar stable...and extra pounds off. It's as simple as that."

We never quit eating carbs totally. We have a salad with every meal and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Another thing that we did was to start taking high doses of pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil and daily multivitamins. Click on link to learn more. If you have been following any health news at all you will know about fish oil. The key is though that you need to be taking pharmaceutical grade fish oil so that you are not getting all of the heavy metals (mercury etc.) and toxins that are in the fish and regular fish oil. They are ultra purified so that even if you were to bite into them they don't taste fishy. No fish burps (I know you know what I am talking about) or anything!

To your health!
