Merry Christmas / Seasons Greetings!

Happy Holidays!

Another year has passed by and we’ll soon be into 2019–hard to imagine.  Nineteen years ago lots of folks were freaking out about Y2k entering the year 2000 and yet here we are & we’ll be approaching 2020 next year! 😀.

With each passing year we need to reflect on our good fortune and our good health.  When starting this blog I had no idea how much of my time it would absorb.  It’s been substantial, but I believe well worth it.  It’s helped me focus on maintaining my diet and hopefully helping others at the same time.  Proper eating is key to a healthy lifestyle but at the same time flexibility is important too.

I learned that in order to succeed in losing weight, we can’t deny ourselves everything that we enjoy.  Now and again we need to treat ourselves to a piece of chocolate, or a slice of cake and not feel guilty about it.  It’s often said that “everything in moderation” is the way to live, and I do agree with that belief.  But, we all know it’s not always as easily said as done.

For those of you who are trying to gain weight, I really don’t have any simple plan.  The only advice I can give you is to eat well-balanced meals and exercise regularly–which is the same advice we all need to follow.  However, obesity is a bigger problem, especially in North America, and it should never have become one.  The food giants need to take notice–we’re not so easy to fool nowadays.  On that note, I recommend that everyone reads the following book–it sure is an eye-opener:

Salt, Sugar, Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us

My blog is mainly about food, and we all need to eat, which is why there is probably more written and published about the subject of food than anything else. 😺   So I’d like to take this moment to thank all my readers and followers when there’s already so much out there for you to choose from.  And, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little journey of mine and will continue on the voyage with me into next year.

Have a safe and happy holiday season, and may the new year be a healthy and prosperous one for all of you.

Sincerely,

Bill Wilkat
