The Benefits of Being a Late Bloomer Jan is an entrepreneur who was a chubby kid and an overweight adult. Too much self-loathing and too little time was spent planning to be healthy.

 “I got fed up (pun intended) and got serious about eating right. I have more energy at age 60 than I ever had before. I've learned that my personal energy and sense of well being is a resource, just like time or money. I work at making the most of my energy by making healthy eating and exercise a priority.”  

Here are a few things Jan has learned that have helped her resist the salt, sugar, and fat trap that defines how many Americans eat.

#1. Get fruit & vegetables into your home & office.

#2. Eat BEFORE you're starving.

#3. Wake up to what you're eating. Read labels. 

#4. Know the recommended serving size.

#5. Get more sleep. That's right. You eat more when you're tired.

#6. Set your smart phone timer in 30-minute work intervals, then stand up, move, breathe and drink water!

#7. Food is wonderful. It should be a delight not a battleground. Go ahead and love food, especially food that loves you back.

Jan’s Next Thing After years of being creative on behalf of business-to-business clients, she added a creative project of her own to the mix. She is the author of Henrietta Sharp and the Magic Lunch Box, an eBook for kids 9 - 12, where a chubby heroine deals with mean girls at school, an unruly super power, and an intergalactic villain who wants to take over the taste buds of humanity.

The companion web site, HenriettaSharp.com, wants to address the public health issue of childhood obesity by doing something unique. Instead of serving up nutrition facts, we’re going to involve kids (and their significant adults) in a story; an adventure that's shared in digital, print, and video formats on the web.
