Let's face it. The low carb/high fat approach is still not politically correct. Eliminating added sugar is getting lots of support in the media these days from films like Fed Up, and books like Fat Chance by Dr. Robert Lustig.
The truth is, I didn't just eliminate sugar in order to lose more than 65 pounds, and keep it off (with a 6 month period of re-gain which I will describe on today's show) for six years and counting. I also completely eliminated grains, I ate more fat, and most shocking of all, I occaisionally practiced intermittent fasting. I was truly afraid to tell anyone how I had lost all my weight, let alone write publicly about it.
Then, I saw Dr. David Perlmutter on the Dr. Oz Show. He was talking about his book, Grain Brain. I bought the book, read it, and followed Dr. Perlmutter's dietary approach in order to get back to my happy weight. The most important conviction I gained from Grain Brain was that I never ever had to eat grains again. Finally, I had the courage to write my story, and share my own approach to sugar and grain free living. If you've decided to let grains go for good, I hope you'll listen today, and read Grain Brain, by Dr. David Perlmutter
Shakespeare said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” and the same applies to the term Sugar Daddy. No matter the term the meaning is still the same. Traditionally this is a rich usually middle-aged or old man who bestows expensive gifts on a young woman in return for companionship and or sexual favors. Today, this relationship can be found in other combinations. Not just a rich old man and a young woman. The Sugar relationship can be found as a rich older woman and a young man. In fact, you name the gender combinations and you’ll be able to find a “Sugar Relationship” in the mix somewhere.
These relationships appear to be mutually beneficial. Money exchanged for romance and companionship on some level. But does the benefit carry true substance or is it merely superficial? Do these relationships cause harm that most people don’t perceive? In other words what’s so bad about the Sugar Daddy?

Happiness comes from your specific perspective on the world - how you see the past, the present, and the future. To live in the present, you must accept the past; make peace with it. Find whatever you can to be grateful for the experience and then free yourself to enjoy life in the present. Allow yourself to be amazed and awed by the mystery of the world and the universe happening around you.
Have a "happiness checkup". Be bold enough to ask yourself, “Am I happy? If you are not happy, confront yourself on how you feel about your past experiences; are you living in the present, and do you dream about the future? Are you taking care of yourself? Do you eat right? Are you sleeping enough? Do you exercise? Are you in need of a healthy relationship or good networking acquaintances?
Dig deeply to access your feelings; stop just be going along for the ride. Look for challenges each day and very aware of what is going on around you; get mentally engaged in your life. You must have something to feel passionate about; something that peaks your interest. If your lack of happiness is due to dynamics of your relationships, ask yourself, “What am I bringing into the relationship?” Am I contributing to the relationship in a manner that nurtures it and helps it stay alive and grow? Be prepared to do something about what is lacking.
Anticipate the future with excitement. Death is the only thing that will stop Tomorrow from coming so participate in making it wonderful. Set yourself up for success by planning good things that are doable: "Tomorrow I’m going to do something nice for somebody. Tomorrow I’m going to get focused on a project I’ve been waiting to do. Tomorrow I will register for a class."
Happiness will find you if you are at peace with the past; be engaged in the present and excited about the future.
Do you feel stuck in place, like you want to be somewhere else in life but you don't know how to get from where you are to where you want to be?
A friend of mine inspired this topic today. She was in limbo, paralyzed between where she was and where she wanted to go, and not sure what the next step was.
This is a very common feeling and that it's completely natural and normal for everyone to go through periods of confusion and procrastination in their lifetime.
What's important is learning how to be productive in your confusion/procrastination/paralyzation.

There are millions of people who long to feel more connected and happier in their life. They just don’t know how to go about doing it.
