Eat Full Fat Peanut Butter

Natural peanut butter does not mean without added sugars and hydrogenated oils.....go full fat as sugars and starchy fillers in reduced fat peanut butter are unhealthy and the difference in calories is negligible. Pick one that's packed with protein and has heart healthy monounsaturated fat.

Barley, Oatmeal and Oat Bran, mushrooms are all healthy foods that slow and steady carb absorption for those who want to avoid high blood sugar. Healthy plant fats also soak up sugar...1/2 of an avocado, 3 tbs. a day of flax seeds, 2 tbs. of nut butter...exercise works too!

Walnuts have high levels of Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.
They are good for the heart as well. Add to yogurt, salads, or just eat them plain in moderation...4 walnuts a day can keep your healthier...7 walnut halves are around 100 calories....

Probiotics Are Essential for Prevention of Dis-ease & Obesity

I have used probiotics and digestive enzymes for 20 years. I have found that, in addition to Lecithin and Chromium Picolinate, probiotics assist in keeping the blood sugar normalized. They are also VERY important for the immune system. There are at least 13 strains of bacteria that are essential for preventing inflammatory illnesses and the health of our intestinal system which is the seat of our immune systems. These so-called 'good bacteria' crowd out the nasty ones.

Reduce dry mouth, dry eyes and leg pain

When I complained of dry mouth, dry eyes and leg pain while taking statin cholesterol control medication, my doc recommended CoQ 10 which is a supplement available over the counter. I cut my statin in half and took CoQ 10 and had better results on cholesterol levels with no dry mouth, no dry eyes and no leg pain. Woo hoo!
