I haven't been around a lot for the last couple months.
I am squandering my youth in front of computer terminals at work, spending too many hours there. But, I do like the work. Just too many hours.
I have given my first talk, or presentation, to publicize the Fuhrman program. I gave it to my Sunday School class, at church. The talk was much better received than I thought it would be. Everyone was interested, and liked it. I was pretty much amazed. The talk was much too long, so I have to cut it down to an hour. The message of the talk is that this diet is the most effective medical treatment available, for heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and many more. I emphasize medical publications.
I'm thinking to lean towards health coach, too. I'm 59, may work to 70.
Have an accountant here at work won't stop smoking. Now getting chest pain after dinner almost nightly, and walking in from his car in the morning. After talking to me a few months ago, he did get a stent. Now he needs another one, plus a kick in the pants. He's working on other changes.
I told him if he won't, he should check his will and life insurance beneficiaries.
HEY - recommend Forks Over Knives to your accountant friend. It's a DVD you can rent from Netflix, or better, just buy it from www.forksoverknives.com . A guy at work recommended it. So I asked my wife to get it on Netflix. I expected her to watch it for 10 minutes and walk away, but she watched the entire 90 minutes. AND she bought 4 DVDs, for us and family and friends. WoW. The movie is very well done. My wife is much less evangelical about this, than I am. So I am really tickled about her response.
