Three books that changed the way I think about my body and food

Person holding a book in front of their face

Fun fact about me. I think a LOT. Especially when it comes to the journey to better health. I think about what made me get obesity in the first place, what events in my life formed my attitudes around food and eating, what I think about my body, why sometimes it’s very easy to control what I eat while at …

Product Review: ProCare Health Sea Salted Caramel Calcium Chews

I’m going to be 100% honest with you. I’m sort of “meh” about caramel. I know, I know, I know. But still. It’s how I feel! But I just want to make it clear, I don’t hate the stuff. It’s just not my first choice when it comes to my limited threshold for sweet flavors. Those of you who know …

There’s just not. While most one-a-day vitamins …

Product Review: Livliga “Viva” Just Right Set® Bariatric Flatware

I’m going to keep it 100% real with you. This product gives me the “you kids don’t know how good you have it” feelings. Because honestly? There was no such thing as bariatric flatware when I was a new post-op. None. Zip. Zilch. There may have been a generic set of plastic utensils in bariatric focused food containers, but there …
