Jordan Ring recently alerted me to his article “25 Small Changes You Can Make to Lose Weight, Feel Better and Live Longer,” which (as promised) is chock full of easy and helpful ideas for anyone looking to take their health to the next level. Jordan divides up these health-minded tips between dietary, lifestyle and attitude changes – making it easy for the reader to pick and choose which tips he or she might want to put into practice.
I’ve always loved this approach to feeling and looking better. Too often, when wanting to initiate important change in our lives, we take on an “All or nothing” approach, which can lead to instant failure the first time we fall off the wagon (however one defines his or her own wagon).

Did you know that both standing and sitting tall are as good for your inner health as they are for your outward appearance – making this an appropriate reminder for anytime of year (and believe me, I need just as much reminding to ‘Stand up straight’ as anyone!).
In fact, if you stand tall and sit tall, you’ll appear as much as 10-pounds thinner. You also exude extra confidence and self-worth, upping the “attractor factor.”
Think about it… People you see with good posture (whether seated or standing) just seem to have it more together than the people walking around in a slump. Take the initiative to reach for the stars by reminding yourself several times throughout the day to stand or sit tall. Look in a mirror to help you know how it “feels” to use correct posture. It takes some getting used to – but is definitely worth the effort. Other ways to improve personal posture include trying yoga, Pilates or other stretching and strengthening exercises, as recommended by your doctor.

I make no secret of being a huge fan of the Today show’s Joy Bauer and all she does in the name of health and nutrition. In fact, our professional relationship has become a friendship and I’m honored she now refers to me as her “diet husband.” (And I’m never granting her a diet divorce!)
One of Joy’s latest ventures is Nourish Snacks, which offer convenient and delicious pre-portioned snacks that have just the right amounts of protein and carbs for a filling, nutritious pick-me-up whenever needed.
I was thrilled when Nourish Snacks wanted to feature me on one of their blogs. And I invite you to check it out by clicking here. It’s a fun interview and I didn’t hold back with my tried-and-true tips for taking off excess weight. (Faithful readers of this blog know that I took off over 250 pounds of excess weight in a sane fashion and have kept the weight off for over a decade. Plus, anytime I can let people know about my new book, Weightless, I’m all in!)
For anyone wanting more information about Nourish Snacks or their insane variety of flavors, you can click here. In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out the interview and let me know what you think. (Thanks!)
