2a. The Daily Plan of Someone Who Lost 200 Pounds
5:00 AM Half an hour of aerobic exercise to an exercise video or half an hour on the treadmill
6:00 AM Breakfast - bowl of oatmeal with fresh fruits, flaxseeds and skimmed milk or dry cereal rich in fiber with skimmed milk and coffee
6:30 AM Walk to the subway instead of hubby driving her there with the pedometer counting the steps. The goal is 10,000 steps each day.
9:00 AM Snack - Soy protein powder mixed with skimmed milk and black coffee
12:00 PM Lunch - Ordered turkey burger, without the roll and salad with dressing that is low in fat or if brought from home, any lean fish, chicken or tofu with steamed vegetables
3:00 PM One cup of light cottage cheese or one cup of yogurt that is low fat, both with apple or other fresh fruit
5:00 PM Pass by a health food store on the way home. If at this time there is a craving for food, wait for 15 minutes and usually it subsides
6:00 PM While preparing dinner, to avoid nibbling, have a whole wheat cracker with nut butter. Dinner could be a rotisserie chicken with the skin removed (the hardest part of the whole plan because the skin is the most favorite part) with vegetables or Beef Soup with lots of vegetables prepared in the weekend. Dessert is fruit salad.
In addition to the above, drink two liters of water through the day (If you do, you won't get pain in the neck.) And then in the weekends, get an extra half hour of exercise by walking around the neighborhood and perhaps have a glass of wine sometimes. Check with the doctor, remember. Then of course, have a snack of popcorn without butter at around 9:00 PM.
2b. Take this quiz and find out how much do you know about diabetes and your diet. There are five questions in all that will check what you know about insulin, glucose and counting carbs. The answer is either true or false. The answers are down below almost to the end of this newsletter; don't peek!
3. A Success Quotation of the Month
The thing that goes the farthest
How true that is! It lifts people up when you smile at them. Even the grouchiest person will be forced to smile back. It is the littlest smile but it may turn one around from disgruntled killer to someone who will think it over first before he starts shooting at people. Who knows what a smile can do?
4. And here’s the dessert recipe we promised you.
This dessert is delicious and on top of that it is light. You can't beat this combination for ice cream and fruit go together like ham and eggs. Wait a minute, I don't have to sell this to you. Try it and you will like it; you will want it week after week.
Ice Cream and Broiled Fruits
The Easter weekend is the official commencement of spring which heralds celebrations of all kinds ending up with a gastronomic bang. Choose therefore a delectable dessert. And what could be better than the combination of ice cream and broiled fruits?
5. Let's laugh together at this joke even if it's not funny. Laughing will help get us healthy.
Walking- it's not just for the dogs!
Okay, that's still not funny so send us some jokes, will you? We're sure your jokes will be more funny than ours because we laugh at every little thing. Let's see who will send the funniest joke ever!
Here are some diabetes news alert:

Here are the answers to the Quiz:
1. False. Diabetics should closely watch what they eat and keep track and work on lowering the blood sugar level.
Quizzes like this may motivate those with diabetes to try to learn more about their condition. This will help in the management and in the execution of the diabetes care plan to see if it is working or not. This way adjustments can be made until the right treatment path is found.
That's all for now our friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter. Let this Easter be a new beginning again. If stressed, meditation will help you become more relaxed. It won’t happen overnight but you‘ll feel better as time passes by. This is great because stress increases the heart rate, blood pressure and respiration while meditation slows them down. Take very good care of yourselves and we'll talk to you again soon. Until then, we wish the best for you.
