Child hugging mother

Use nutrition to stoke your sex drive! Why young moms aren’t “into it.”

You think I’m going to start talking about chocolate syrup and strawberries in the bedroom as props. I’m not. I have WAY better advice than that. Moms of young children are very often less interested in sex than their partners. Husbands are frustrated and wonder what happened to the energetic woman they married. (Have a […]

update on the Sugar Bet

Do you ever stop and think about the ways karma just flows and flows? When I was over six months into my year-long Sugar Bet, last February, I confessed that I’d screwed up, when I was in Hawaii. I came clean immediately when I got home. Not just here on the blog, but I went […]

The frustration of making changes

This week my undefeated team goes to Districts. I play singles this weekend even though I’m primarily a doubles player. I’ve won my last 9 matches in a row, and have been logging hours on the court with my ball machine, correcting weaknesses, evaluating my play. Last year at this time, I went to Dictricts […]

We love the SOUTH! Part 2 of 3

One GSG reader said this to me, the very first thing when she sat down to chat with me after our Raleigh class: “I want you to know that I was there, right behind you, in your divorce in 2008. I was praying for you.” My eyes are welling up, right now, thinking about this. […]

My friend Nancy drops 100+ lbs.

My longtime friend Nancy is a radio personality. I’ve done a couple of shows with her, most recently to talk about the release of The Adventures of Junk Food Dude. Nancy’s youngest child, Anna, refuses to drink soda and loves green smoothies, after they did an experiment and measured the amount of sugar that was […]

Could you fit in the seat at Fenway Park?

Yesterday, a good friend confided in me that he’s recently had a heart attack and is struggling with asthma, acid reflux, allergies, and blood pressure over 170. He said, “I drink my green smoothie but then junk out the rest of the time.” This has always been my fear—that 90 percent of folks who read […]

Intention is Everything

This is a photo of my son picking a sophomore named Tate off the ground to celebrate what happened last night at Utah’s legendary Gates Field where state high school playoffs are held. Tate told Cade, “Last night I dreamed you hit a grand slam!” He reminded Cade over and over that day, telling him, […]

Be the Change….part 3 of 3

I will be talking more about alternatives to root canals, and the fluoride / amalgam fillings controversies next week. I’m researching and interviewing. I know I kinda left that hanging—a root canal isn’t acceptable, but neither is pulling a tooth. Stand by. I will have good stuff for you. Including comments and ideas from dentists […]

Hunger Games….on “being the change”….part 2 of 3

Are we obsessed with rich food? With how everything tastes? I promise you, we are. The thing everyone wants to talk to me about, when I’m out running errands or at an event, is how green smoothies don’t taste that bad. (Well, sure, they taste GREAT if you put half a cup of agave in […]

The Hunger Games, and “Being the Change”….part 1 of 3

Ben and I saw The Hunger Games recently. I’d resisted the national obsession with reading the books. Partly because, call me a snob, I didn’t want to read “kids’ books” with my precious, limited reading time. I’m a grownup, and I want grownup challenges from my cerebral functions. Partly because I feel terribly guilty if […]
