The CalorieKing Calorie, Fat & Carbohydrate Counter 2009

The only time I watched Oprah in the last two weeks she was talking about the calorie restricted diet. Then I saw Valerie Bertinelli on the cover of People magazine and she was wearing a bikini - and she looked great. Somebody is trying to tell me something, its time to start a new diet.

I like the whole idea of calorie restriction because it's not all about losing weight. It's really about living longer. Do the two go together? I'm going to try and find out.

I started by going to the
The Calorie Restriction Society website. They offer a wealth of information including what to do before getting started, risks, benefits and recipes.

I've already had my physical and lab tests so I figured out how many calories I need to eat per day (1754.45) and made a shopping list. My list was mostly fish, fruits, vegetables and egg whites. This is going to be tough so as an incentive to stick with it I'm going to write a series of articles for Ezine.

Another incentive is the little gem I'm now carrying around in my purse - The CalorieKing Calorie, Fat & Carbohydrate Counter 2009 by Allan Borushek.

It's small so it's super handy to have with you so you can make informed choices when shopping or dining out. It's colorful and has tips and cartoons as well as nutritional information and basics on diabetes and health. And its only $8.99.
