Our Facebook Favs of the Week:
Jules Ann S Brown rice is better for you. It has 3 parts to it. It has Fiber which is good for you. White Rice last years longer in storage, but is not good for you. White Rice lacks the vitamins that brown rice has.
- Heather Hurst Almarode I take natural calm plus calcium every day for RLS, twitching, muscle cramps, migraines, anxiety, sleep issues, and my IBS! It really is a "miracle"!! I flip out if the bottle gets close to empty LOL
- Heather Ramirez I know right? EVERYONE wants someone to fix THEIR school. ME TOO. The only problem is, I feel a little guilty saying so, because there's this little voice in my head that says, so why haven't YOU done anything? Why can't YOU be the one to take the first step.
- Jeffrey Jones Hana: I find that drinking a full glass of water 30 minutes BEFORE meal helps stretch the stomach: sending signals to the brain saying it is beginning to get full - helps me eat less at mealtime. I also put down my fork after taking a bite, and sip water while eating to avoid wolfing down my food. Then, I try to drink some hot liquid (coffee, tea) AFTER my meal. As long as I'm getting enough and proper nutrition... NO DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS!
- Cynthia Cox Great list and information!
I keep a printout of these #'s, on my fridge. For for quick reference.
