    In the last 30 days my husband and I have paid more attention to drinking half our body weight in ounces of ionized alkaline water. We have progressed from 7.0 to 9.0. I have found that hydrating our bodies has kept us from snacking/grazing thru out the day. We are loosing weight slowly without any additional changes. Who imagened that such a simple change could make such a huge benefit? I have been complimented on how much more healthy I look. Simple steps are making great changes for us both.

    As always,I came looking for info and found what I was looking for!! Great job SP!! Keep the healthy living articles coming!!!
    If I experience leg cramps during exercise, is it true I'm not getting enough magnesium and/or potassium?? I take a good multivitamin and eat a healthy/nutritious diet.
  • I find that eating a bit of avocado / guacamole every day or every other day literally makes a visible difference in a few days if not instantly. (Maybe not quite so much in the depths of winter when the skin probably has a bit too much to cope with.) I've heard good things about eating macadamia nuts too for dry skin, but I've never monitored it.

    (You'd think I'd have a permanent store of guacamole in my fridge, really. But no, I'm lazy.)
  • Its amazing how much better I feel on the Spark food plan!

    Sound advise, but not very accurate, is it? I mean, fruit are also simple carbs, but that doesn't mean one should avoid eating them, especially for healthy skin.
  • Once, I tried to limit my food intake that too oily or deep fried food. It really worked to reduce getting acne, even when during my monthly period! But I messed my effort by eating local junk food this month that a bit oily, had lots of ground nuts and my face getting worse, huhu.
  • I'm trying to make the switch from coffee to green tea. Ugh. Just hasn't happened yet. Great chart!
  • I've been following these simple basics for 7 months now and I feel and look amazing!! I'm 44 lbs. from my goal weight of 140. I've NEVER had a flat belly in my life, and now I can see this happening. I still have some distance to go, but I can actually see how good I'm going to look when I get there.
  • I actually got complimented on my skin the other day. My mom told me before I started this program I was looking 10 years older than I am. Now she thinks I could pass for 10 years younger than I am now. WOW did that feel good!:)
  • Loved the Chart. That was greattttt! Thanks
  • i have noticed in the last two weeks of incorporating more water and green tea, that my skin is clearing up and looking younger...amazing what beauty from the inside out does for one's self esteem
  • Since I started Spark People three weeks ago, my skin has completely cleared up! I used to always have one or two pimples somewhere on my face, and now I consistently have no acne, and my skin looks brighter too! I'm convinced there is definitely a link between hydration, eating well and skin appearance!

    More good reasons to eat healthy food. I started drinking green tea instead of coffee on work days. I really enjoy it; my routine is to get to the office, grab a tea bag and put it into a 16 oz coffee commuter mug with a lid to steep for a while. I still get a shot of caffeine with the green tea too. I drink it plain, no sugar or cream. I still drink coffee on non-work days.
