Wordsmith– I also write books

At this moment I am preparing for a 1:30 pm EST (10:30 am Pacific Time) radio interview that will be broadcast on the Sugar and Spice Press blog,


Hostess Sabrina Luna will ask insider questions about just released GOLD STANDARD OF THIN by daughter Janice and myself.  I will share some of the seven secrets in the little gold suitcase that will help you fake a skinny gene.  Using these, you will drop even those last pesky pounds.  Truth is, when Janice and I started trying to rid ourselves of  twenty pounds each, we couldn’t do it until we knew the magic calorie formula.  Friends, in order to lose weight, multiply your present weight by seven.  If you weigh 140 and want to weigh less, multiply your present weight (140) by 7 to calculate your daily calories, 980.   In our book, we don’t just list foods essential to your well being, we have over a hundred easy-to-prepare recipes.  These meals contain vegetables (with fiber, water, and nutrients) that keep you full for four hours with total stomach and intestinal comfort– no cabbage soup here, ha ha.   You probably know that popular ready-made low-fat diet meals usually have added sugar to make them tastier.  Always check the label to ensure there is no more than 1/4 oz of total sugars per 4 oz of a product.

Gold Standard of Thin
Available in every eBook format at Sugar and Spice Press, and in paperback at Amazon.com.
For those of you on the GOLD STANDARD plan, know that this blog, Petals in the Gazebo, serves as your ongoing support system.

    Kathleen, my doctor’s wife bought six months of prepackaged meals from a diet vendor, but they taste so horrible that after she eats them, she follows it with something else.

    Gals, just thinking– it’s no wonder many people don’t lose weight on 1600 calories a day which seems to be pretty typical for diets out there– such as Prevention Magazine’s. I know they are sound nutritionally, but they are more for maintenance, for somewhat pudgy people who need to lose just twenty pounds.

    True, Reba. Here’s how I’m using a package of Lean Cuisine Linguine Carbonara, and I got this from a suggestion in GOLD STANDARD OF THIN– instead of eating this 300-calorie package all by myself with a salad, I’m eating half (sharing the other half with Rob) but adding 3 oz turkey. Dark meat turkey is 160 calories, and white meat turkey is 130. This really boosts the protein. And, I’m sauteing zucchini and peppers to mix into the linguini mixture.

    Too bad Nutrisystem meals can’t be jazzed up like that. NutriSystem supplies you with three entrees (breakfast, lunch and dinner) along with snacks and desserts for a reasonable $10 per day. The entree portion is extremely controlled, smaller than what you get with a Weight Watchers or Lean Cuisine frozen meal. Depending on the meal, you supplement the entree with a variety of fruits, vegetable, and dairy items you purchase separately from the food furnished by NutriSystem.

    The concept is reasonable because it addresses healthy, well-rounded meals. Unfortunately, they don’t taste as good as they look on the commercials. Which one did you hate the most, Janessa?

    The winner was a Green Pepper Steak with Rice served in gravy with a few chunks of beef and a pasty glob of rice.
