The latest diet fad

Trading Post Chat


That was the latest so-called diet solution offered by a talk show host. All I can picture is the fast food server's face when that request hit the fan! I, myself, do not think that one diet method works the same for all people....if they work at all!

I guess that is why there are so many diet plans on the market. There is Weight Watchers, Atkins Diet, Jenny Craig, Nutri System, South Beach Diet, Grapefruit Diet, Cabbage Soup Diet, Caveman Diet, Master Cleanse Diet and the list goes on. I believe Aunt Martha has tried just about everyone of them. She will lose five pounds one day and gain it back the next. It happens to me also. We have even replaced our bathroom scales thinking that they were broken...but nope, that wasn't it.

Trying to switch around what time we eat, what we eat and sometimes don't eat at all...still doesn't work. Face it, all our metabolisms are different. Especially, as we grow older....the weight challenge becomes even harder. Do any of you Folks out there have a solution? A diet or method that has helped you successfully lose weight? Give me a call: #615-464-7824 or email me at: I can share your input with all our readers out there.

How many times have you meticulously made up your shopping list and then left it at home on your kitchen table? Well, there is a solution for this problem now. They are now selling a computerized camera to install in your refrigerator so now all you have to do is connect to it with your cell phone and see just what you have or have not and need to pick up at the grocery store. Not for everybody, but an interesting concept for folks who have nothing else to do with their money!

Recently, I had one of my readers ask me how in the world did the word POUND get abbreviated LB? The answer is that the Latin word for pound is LIBRE: and thus, LB became the symbol for pound. Well, honestly, if you have ever taken a chemistry class....the abbreviations for most of the gases, minerals and chemicals are far out. The one for Potassium always got me: the letter K.

One more thing I wanted to bring up regarding healthy options. There IS such a thing as Water Intoxication. It IS possible to over hydrate your body.

The suggestion to drink at least eight ounces of water a day is not particularly a GOOD one. Drinking that much water with no electrolytes along with it is dangerous. It sets our body fluids out of balance. Our kidneys can't get rid of all the urine build up. Marathon runners are susceptible to water intoxication if they drink too much water while running. I'm not saying to NOT drink water...just drink other fluids during the day along with it such as juices, tea or the electrolyte waters on the market. Adding lemon to your water is also a good thing. The taste of water is boring to me, so I welcome the alternative beverages to keep me safely hydrated during the day. If you have more information on this subject, I once again welcome your comments. Call the number above or email me with your opinion.

I especially would LOVE to hear your thoughts on the presidential election coming up and on the candidates running for this election. You have a right to speak your mind. I do a good job of it ! Wake up America...we are in a very serious dilemma on straightening out our country in so many issues. Issues that have been discussed and promised to be fixed for decades! And nothing has changed. Same ole....same ole....

Granted, Trump is entertaining and outspoken....but is he diplomatic enough to run our nation securely? At times, he is like a little boy: I want to UNSIGN that amendment.

I don't like you, Mr. Cruz or Mr. Rubeo . You are dopey Mr. Bush...go home. Give me a stick and a match and I will set this campaign on fire! What is he? A boy scout?

Then there is Hillary. She will probably end up the candidate running against Trump. I am surprised that she has any teeth left, the way she clenches them during her lying speeches and age old solutions from her husband's reign of terror. about your opinion on all this? Call or email me.

Here's a new tactic that bosses are using when hiring employees. He takes them out to breakfast and purposely has their orders messed up. He watches to see their reaction and how they handle it. A good test for ADVERSTITY. A good test to see what's in their heart not just their mind. Nice job!

Well, here is the latest on my side of the family. Uncle Pete has a pop band called: Geri and the Atrics. There favorite song is: I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up. They are a hit at all the Nursing Homes and Vets functions. Sadly, they recently lost one of their members, Clem. His oxygen tank blew up when his electric guitar short circuited. At this point, they are looking for a new guitar player...but one who breathes on his own.

We are all working diligently on our new season coming up at the Short Mountain Trading Post. We are patiently waiting out the crazy weather pattern.

When we are on a consistent dependency on our Tennessee weather patterns and hope it will be all warmed up for us by the end of March. I will keep you informed how we are doing on an opening date. Looking forward to seeing all of you again and have lots of new surprises for you!

Going to run for now and look forward to chatting with you next week. Please take me up on my offer to hear from you folks by phone or email regarding the topics we talk about in my CHAT. Please take care of yourselves and families, help your neighbors, drive safely and buckle up. Laugh Often....the best medicine out there!

Hugs, Savannah
