Not so easy summer listening: All Art of the Diet podcast episodes: 1-144. The third year anniversary of PODSNACKS/Art of the Diet is mid August. From now until then, I am going to edit all episodes for relevancy and topic. Can I listen to myself that much? Dunno. But, each week I'll be rebroadcasting one I think worth re-listening to if you are a veteran listener or a good one for a new listener. I'll figure out what I'll do with those I decide to keep when the editing task is over. All I know is whatever form it ends up in, a PDF form, a book, a comic strip, I'll offer to my loyal listeners! You can sign up on my artofthediet.com website. I'll be occasionally using Facebook and WW Connect over this period but I'll be in re-broadcast mode until my green editor's hat is back in the drawer. If you have any episode you particularly found helpful, let me know the episode # and I'll include it in the rebroadcast queue. www.artofthediet.com/145 www.thephotogardener.com
Cake at 4 am! The Royal Wedding. Now, how many opportunities do we have to escape reality like this? Escapism is essential to maintaining a weight loss cuz it is the rare human who can do this monitoring 24/7 with no relief. I use my creativity, others use other ambitions, but usually we have to each privately create our own fairy tales and I don't know about my listeners, but mine have never included cake at 4 am!

Women and Doctors. Is it time to reboot our relationships with physicians or give them the boot? A recent experience made me pause and consider that I needed to try and reboot the relationship with my doctor or else give him the boot. I might be part of the problem so best to start with my part. But, apparently, I am not alone in how to navigate this relationship successfully. "When Doctors Downplay Women's Health Concerns" is a NYTimes article discussed this week. www.artofthediet.com/143 www.thephotogardener.com
Dear Hormones Gherlin and Leptin, Krumpe you. The scientific basis for those struggling to maintain a significant weight loss is not in willpower but in the hormonal reaction to a body losing weight. It's disheartening but it is real and best to know the challenge. www.artofthediet.com/142 My shop is www.thephotogardener.com
