Good Morning Poppy,

Twenty-eight days can change your life! I am living proof. Now here is my favorite thing to eat. Take a veggie/soy burger and heat it in the microwave. While it is heating, take a non-stick pan with no oil and brown about a teaspoon of green onion and garlic. When the burger is done, place the garlic and onion on top and INSTEAD OF 2 SLICES OF BREAD make your sandwich with 2 thick slices of tomatoes. That burger is my new best friend.

Stay away from processed foods – mostly anything in a box or can. Five things you should NOT consider eating for a while: 1) Anything with a face or legs 2) Anything processed 3) Sugar 4) Saturated fat 5) Trans fat. The weight will come of fast if you include the 10,000 Steps. I don’t go anywhere without my pedometer.

Good luck and great stepping,

Rocco

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
