    Is Truth on Your Grocery List or Sweatpants? PODSNACKS/Art of the Diet

    Is Truth on Your Grocery List or Sweatpants? PODSNACKS/Art of the Diet

    What is on my grocery list every week in a pandemic? Truth. Food is the only thing I have control over these days and it is oddly comforting. I dress for the Apocalypse when going to the grocery store and ask myself what do I need not what do I want. My goal for this period of time: to want what I need and to tell my food truth to myself every week. www.artofthediet.com

    Art of the Diet with Claude Monet

    Art of the Diet with Claude Monet

    Claude Monet inspired this month’s podcast about the Art of the Diet. He inspired it not for his fitness regime or low-fat recipes because both those concerns did not appear to be on his mind at all. But, what does impress is the care and attention he gave to food and its preparation as well as presentation. These aspects can energize a weight maintenance program. www.artofthediet.com

    What's Next on the Fun Agenda?

    What’s Next on The Fun Agenda? 2020 begins with a cartoon question that I saw recently on an artist’s Instagram account. His character answered it by simply stating “Abstinence”. I laughed out loud as this character looked like he had abused every illegal substance available. After the holidays, don’t we all feel this way? 2020, I am focusing on artists who have tackled food, glorious food and food issues not so glorious in their art and that have resonated with my own issues. www.artofthediet.

    Most people who have maintained a significant weight loss for many years are often asked: "What diet do you recommend?". My most recent answer is the subject of this month's podcast: I recommend "The Keep It Simple" Diet and it involves three tweaks of behavior not entire renovations.

really interesting

This is a very different and interesting podcast. Pat has an engaging manner and a wide range of interests. I'm glad I found her.

Disappointed.

I had hoped for more than a platform for her political views. Look elsewhere if you are hoping for encouragement with your weight loss journey.

I’m trying to change my mindset and bang, right off the bat she has to go political. Not everyone feels the way you do.
