Kate Middleton was the pinnacle of poise and regalness at her wedding today, but from what we’ve seen of her over the years, this is not a surprise. To me, she acts like she is deserving of a happy and fulfilling life and I say this in the most positive way. Her figure is deserving of every superlative. She has a beautiful, warm, captivating smile. No wonder Prince William fell in love with a woman of pure beauty and grace!
As I write this, I wonder how many of us feel like we’re deserving of a life of ease with a beautiful figure and surrounded by a loving family?
I heard a trainer say that the clients who have the most success with weight loss are those who feel like they are deserving of it. Are you?

Here’s a message from the National Institute of Diabetics and Digestive and Kidney Diseases that may prompt you to incorporate a healthy diet:
Where excess fat is located on your body may be another risk. If you carry fat mainly around your waist, you are more likely to develop health problems than if you carry fat mainly in your hips and thighs. This is true even if your BMI falls within the normal range. Women with a waist measurement of more than 35 inches or men with a waist measurement of more than 40 inches may have a higher disease risk than people with smaller waist measurements because of where their fat lies.

Whenever I see a parent give their child a soda, I always wonder if the parent really knows how poisonous that soda is. A friend of mine, a smoker, is aware that smoking is bad for him, but believes it’s OK to drink soda. Then he rationalizes, like many of us, everything in moderation. True, a soda once in awhile will probably not kill you, just like a cigarette. The fact is, how fast one becomes two and two becomes three, etc. because caffeine and nicotine are addictive.
My question is, why would you, and even more so your children, eat something that you know is actually hurt your health?
JOOS’ philosophy is to eat 90% of your diet as whole foods with 60% to 70% of those as alkaline forming, plant rich foods. The remaining 10% have a piece of cake or a cookie (with no high fructose corn syrup)or a glass of wine. The 10% is very important because if we strive for perfection, we will surely fail.
