With summer finally here, I have adopted a “no excuses” mantra in my quest to shed some weight and get healthy. I’ve been munching carrots instead of chips, drinking more water and resuming my regular walking routine. And when my son uses the “D” word, as in “diet,” I tell him it’s not about diet and deprivation but, rather, it’s about adopting a healthier overall lifestyle.
Two books that recently crossed my desk have further piqued my interest in this topic. The first, “The Juice Lady’s Sugar Knockout,” is written by best-selling author Cherie Calbom, who shares her expertise and knowledge in a 30-day guided transition into a low-sugar-impact diet.
