The After 40 Peeing Problem

Once I hit my mid 40’s, I noticed a marked increase in the number of times I had to use the bathroom.  I even get up in the middle of the night to pee on a regular basis.  I got to wondering why this was happening to me, so I googled it.

When you are young your body produces a hormone that will concentrate your urine.  This allows you to sleep all night without needing a bathroom break.  Unfortunately, as we age we produce less of this hormone.

If you are up in years and wondering why you have to pee all the time, now you know.

The Obesity Code

This book does have some interesting points and ideas to help people lose weight.  I would sum up the book by saying:

Long term weight loss is possible if we balance our hormones, such as insulin in the body.  Insulin can be balanced through intermittent fasting and eating whole/unprocessed foods.  We should also avoid sugar, snacks, sauces, candy, and desserts.

 

Change Takes Discipline

The dictionary defines change as, “to become different in some way, to change is to adjust develop, transform, or revise.”

However, you cannot have change without discipline.   

Discipline is defined as, “a system of rules of conduct or method of practice; to be disciplined is to have self-control, self-restraint, and self-mastery.”

Basically, change takes discipline.  The two work together.
