Frugivore Magazine wrote an article, "Is the Black Church causing obesity by overeating?", raising the concern of obesity amongst African Americans. In 2013, a study conducted by Northwestern University observed 2,433 particpants over an 18-year time period. Out of the particpants, 41% were African Americans who attending one religious event weekly was at risk to become obese.
Dr. Thomas A. Laveist, Director of the Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions, states that,
"Black church culture is out of alignment with some biblical teachings, particularly when it comes to how we eat. Church culture has got us drinking Kool-Aid, eating white bread, fried chicken, large servings of macaroni and cheese and collard greens drenched with salty hog maws (foods that are high in sugar, salt, calories, and carbohydrates that trigger health problems). We’re eating this in the church basement at dinner and at church conventions! Meanwhile, the Bible teaches against gluttony."
Is it time for the Black Church Culture to regain it's health? Join TruthTalk with special guest Zhivi Williams, health & wellness coach and advocate of Leading by Example. Topic of discussion will be on regainig focus on health through clean eating, exercise, and weight maintenance.

The Holidays will soon be upon us. A time to share, feel connected, and at peace.
However, for some, it’s a time of vulnerability, isolation, high stress, and feeling misunderstood. Sometimes, the only place to turn is to the comfort of food. For others, it’s a time to ‘break out’ and over indulge. Either way, the end result can be low self-esteem and high self-blame.
During this show, Annabel will be talking with emotional overeating expert, Bernadette Hunter. They’ll be discussing how to use EFT ahead of the holiday season; the importance of routine and what to do when it’s not there; how to set boundaries regarding food, and taking care of your needs.
Bernadette Hunter, licensed professional counselor and owner of Powerful Performance, provides individual psychotherapy and also peak performance training to musicians, athletes, and public speakers. The majority of her 25 years in private practice focused on the treatment of eating disorders, particularly working with compulsive eaters and dieters. Bernadette uses primarily EFT and EMDR technologies to resolve long-held emotional conflict and to create a hemispheric brain balance, providing a shift into “success physiology” and masterful skill execution.
Annabel Fisher has used her EFT and NLP training to help people struggling with chronic illnesses to go from managing symptoms to living at their fullest potential. Learn more about Annabel at www.TheEFTHealingCentre.com.

We will read and expound from the chapter "Twelve Principles of Recovery" taken from my book Reconnected-How To Be A Mentor To Your Child-Self. The Twelve Steps of Addiction associated with the Alcoholics Anonymous organization have some good points that need to be recognized when we fall into faulty behavior. Even though the Twelve Steps and my Twelve Principles were written with alcoholism and drug addiction in mind, the program can be used for other character defects such as - Anger, Abuse, Compulsive disorders, Overeating, Gambling, Sexual, and Controlling issues. -- When accepting a new life for yourself and realizing that you have to first forgive yourself and others, just saying the words alone may not be good enough to internalize real change. This is why following a program methodically with a solid commitment, and demonstrating the new you by being the example of what you are now believing, you can have more reassurance of a new path for yourself. This is the first installment so we will start with the 1st Principle "We allowed our lower selves to control us regarding our addiction, and admitted that our lives thus had become unmanageable."

Sex is important, good sex is even more important.....if you cut off your sexual energy, you cut off the flow of additional life force energies. Sex is the energy of creation ~ it is life force. Whether you are able to have children or not (it doesn't matter) sex still carries the powerful energies of life force. Utilize it, have fun with it, honor and respect it. Create a good sex life for your self ~ you are in control.
Sex is often seen in terms of control or liberation, both of which become problematic when taken to an extreme. Trying too much to repress sexual desire leads to sex energy unduly affecting the rest of your life. This in turn tends to result in extreme behaviors like overeating, rushing, impatience, chattering without thinking, and, in general, a volatility or a certainty in relation to subjects that require, not passion, but balance, generosity, and considered thought. Sexual promiscuity on the other hand tends to lead to a kind of emotional apathy in relation to other important aspects of your life. The passion for enlightenment—as well as for other pursuits like art, friendship, family, and work—are used up in the pursuit of pleasure.
