I’m not just one to get into flame wars so in complete integrity, the part of this editorial (“Why Protein Isn’t Harmful to You”) that will go after Dr. Ornish wasn’t individually interesting to me. However, this thought provoking op-ed piece reminded me again of the importance of a balanced once, moderate approach to eating and the importance of in-the-flesh, ongoing support in your bodyweight loss efforts. It hurts to be reminded never! Choose a moderate and healthy diet program that you can continue over an extended period or — ideally — forever.
Protein is a necessary part of our diet. In fact, it’s a proven successful approach to weight loss that comes at a price. For many individuals, it’s life keeping. Yet it’s not easy nor instant, and the changes that come with it are hard for some people to handle.

They also mention other recent studies that suggest even that amount of activity won’t always counteract the unwanted effects of long periods of sitting. It has been much in the news headlines lately, resulting in recommendations that we sit longer than 20 minutes at a stretch never. This is a very challenging goal to meet; I understand because I try to keep it.
It would be instructive to just notice how long your stretches of sitting are. When you have a Fitbit or Jawbone or similar device, it’s easy to do: Just take a look at your data. If you do not have an activity monitor, it might be easy enough to keep a notepad on your table or near your sofa. Try wearing at least a simple pedometer and increase your steps every day, paying particular attention to long periods of sitting.
It’s easy enough to do: I will focus on getting up during commercials when I watch TV at night which is when virtually all my sitting occurs. I am going to make sure I get a minimum of 10 also,000/steps every day (even though ill!) which will help me accomplish the previous goal.
