Make the Connection
By: Bob Greene and Oprah Winfrey
I like Oprah Winfrey Show, her lifestyle plus her battle in weight loss program. I have also the same dilemma, yo-yo diet. My body is so confused! Now, that I experienced mega- ulcer plus a little pancreatic issues… My Doctor gave me medication for a month and I swear, the pain is crazy. After a month of medication and 2 months of strict diet, I already lose 10 pounds of water weight without exercising. I even had to take out the Soda and red meat in my regular meals. I tried to eat bawal once in a month and check if my stomach will go crazy and it really doe, sad but true. So I have a phobia now in eating beef, pork and drinking juice & soda. I can no longer experience being 100% full. My meals should be 4 hours apart. If I have my breakfast around 7 a.m. I have to wait for 4 hours to have lunch then for dinner. No snack, only water. Why? because our stomach needs to rest! di ko alam yun haha! During night time, I always drink yakult and fresh milk that made my stomach feels much better.
I am so glad that I no longer crave for red meat (thank you Lord!) but smelling the spirit of Coke sometimes drives me crazy.

Take My Advice
Edited by: James L. Harmon
Aside from Beauty and Body, I also feed my brain with biographies, novels, short stories, fiction, comics, and other literary works.
Take my advice is a fascinating meeting of the highbrow and lowbrow, the contributors offer advice on topics ranging from love and sex to fame and drugs (not that I am taking drugs!) and from living responsibly to living wild from the virtues of independence to the virtues of superficiality.
The contributors words’ to the wise are exciting and shocking, inspiring and challenging.
Happy week end!
