Same thing, new year, maybe not

It's New Year's and time for my usual diet and exercise resolution. Last year I actually did it. I had a goal to lose weight and keep it off and I did. Unfortunately I haven't been able to keep up with the exercise part of it. I feel like my weight might be ok but it doesn't look as good as it did six months ago when I was running. So, exercise again for this year.

I'm also starting to think about food from a perspective other than the damage it can cause and and I'm starting to think about the good it can do. If I can turn my perspectives on food to one of an ally, that could be key toward life long, good health or at least good feelings. Sometimes there may not be a difference.

I'm doing a book review this week, probably it will appear tomorrow on this site, for a cook book on live foods, or raw foods if you prefer. Some of it I'm into and some of it sounds hocus pocus. I'm sure it's difficult to make a full life change to live foods and I can't image for a second getting my kids on board. How could it not be a challenge? Look at how we live. But I'm thinking I'll give it a try. Other diets seem to lean an awful lot on damage control. At least this one does not. And after a life of thinking about food as an enemy, this could be fundamentally life changing. I'm going to give it a try.
