Took my sax to a roadhouse bar last night. Had a chance to play a few tunes with the band.
Afterward we were unwinding, and I was talking to the lead singer. We talked about music and about kids, and after a while he asked what I did. He then said, “Oh, yeah, I know that stuff. I got smaller plates because of that.”
This is a kooky incident, but it brings up an important point:
When you read about something related to your health or happiness, try it out for a week and see if it works for you. If you don't try it, it won't work. If you do try it, it may work.
If it works for you, keep it.
In the meantime, long live rock n' roll.
Summer is high school reunion season.
A mystery of high school reunions is why some people never seem to age. They look the same way today as when you last saw them slow dancing to Stairway to Heaven. What is it they do that the the rest of us don't do?
One thing . . . they don't gain weight.
There's a lot of effort that people put into losing weight, but maybe it's easier to not gain it in the first place. One way do so is to ask perpetually slim people what they do. That's the goal behind our Healthy Weight Registry.
Over 1000 people joined the registry and answered all sorts of questions (please join up if you wish). It will take us some time to crunch all of these data, but I'll start sharing some initial findings in a couple weeks . . . when I get back from my High School reunion.
Other than "Choosing the right parents," what are some secrets you think people have for not aging or gaining weight?
