There are six components of wellness: proper weight and diet, proper exercise, breaking the smoking habit, control of alcohol, stress management and periodic exams.

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
I followed the same diet for 20 years, eliminating starches, living on salads, lean meat, and small portions.
I have been dairy free for several years, and I started because I felt it was going to reduce my allergies, which it did, and help me lose weight, which it did.
My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people.
