I really wanted to avoid negativity as much as possible in 2012 but sometimes that is, well, impossible. For many years I had a face-to-face challenge with heart disease. I was in decent shape but my eating habits weren't cooperating. I witnessed family members getting stress tests, stents, open heart surgery, insulin, yada yada and had an epiphany: STOP THE INSANITY!
For a brief time I bought into one of those "drink this shake on a daily basis and your health will magicially improve" ideas. I was totally stoked. I religiously followed the P90X program and drank the shake --- and it really tasted good (almost like dessert). Prior to the program I had my cholesterol tested --- and it was borderline. After the program? IT INCREASED. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME?
We need micronutrients and chewing them is good. I should've known better than to believe the marketing for this snake oil but I was being an optimist and looking for an elixir to assuage my horrible numbers. Well, I have found it and it doesn't come in a package for $119.95 per month in two flavors. It is found in the outer area of my local supermarket. Who'd a thunk it?
