Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that our client, Nicole P., asked that we share with you her comments from last week: "Thank you! I love your newsletters. I read them religiously!"

Thanks Nicole for reading them religiously and we appreciate the feedback!


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


The Ugly Truth About Dining Out.
Most of us don't want to admit it, but eating at both fast-food and full-service restaurants is associated with significant increases in the intake of calories, sugar, saturated fat, and sodium.

According to a new study in Public Health Nutrition, on days when adults ate at a restaurant, they consumed about 200 additional total daily calories whether they ate at fast-food restaurants or at full-service restaurants.

Previous studies have found that adults who reported eating fast food consumed more calories, fat, and sodium, as well as fewer fruits, vegetables and vitamins compared to than those who did not report eating fast food.

Bonnie: My colleagues at University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health used data from more than 12,000 respondents between the ages of 20 and 64.

If you boil it down to a simple equation, about one in four calories consumed in this country comes from fast food or full service restaurants! 

Imagine how those numbers could come down if everyone replaced one restaurant meal per week with a home-cooked one? If you won't give up that restaurant meal, how about you just order water as your beverage, don't ask for bread or appetizers, and eat half the portion the restaurant gives you (save the rest for leftovers)? Deal?

 I was made aware of this video from the eNewsletter of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which is part of the National Institute's of Health. How nice to see the NIH recognize the importance of these kind of eastern modalities!

New Release!! Self-Help Action Plan Series

Updated Instructions for Carlson Super 2 Daily
No Need for Refrigeration.

Steve: The quality control manager at Carlson Laboratories contacted us with new storage suggestions.


Carlson Super 2 Daily should now be stored at room temperature instead of in the refrigerator or freezer.


There have been a few complaints about softgels leaking when at temperature extremes, causing a foul odor or tackiness to the softgels. Because of this, they made a slight tweek to the softgel.


If your current bottle is refrigerated, Carlson suggests keeping it there. When you get a new bottle, however, keep it in the pantry.


As usual, when traveling, just take the number of softgels you need for the trip and leave the bottle at home.
