Women Are Drinking More
Binge drinking (defined as imbibing four or more drinks within two hours) increased by 3.7% annually among older women, but held steady among older men.
- In a single decade — from 2002 to 2012 — the proportion of women who drank rose from 44.9% to 48.3%, while the proportion of male drinkers fell from 57.4% to 56.1%.
- A survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) between 2011 and 2013 indicated that 53.6% of women ages 18 to 44 were drinking, and 18.2% were binge drinking. The CDC followed up with an alert that three million US women were at risk of increasing the likelihood of sudden infant death syndrome and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
- According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the gender gap has closed among teens, with about 20% of 17-year-olds drinking regularly and 13% binge drinking.
Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World
The author of this book did a commencement speech and he points out how doing the little things can help you with a better attitude, but he also points out that life is not always fair. You can get a glimpse of this book in this commencement speech https://youtu.be/pxBQLFLei70
He points out that you are going to fail, and fail often, but if you don't quit you still have a chance of winning.
Why I Was Gaining Weight
For me, weight loss is about food. Control your food, and you control your weight. Well, I used to plan out my meals ahead of time and as I mentioned last week, even if everything in your house is “healthy” you can still eat too much. Well, I use the Fitbit app. I'm also playing with the fooducate app. Both of these allow you to put in your food and your activity. The Fitbit takes in the steps you have for the day, and adds up the calories burned. This is good and bad.
The good thing is it's easy. It happens automatically.
The bad news is now if you have more than usual steps it shows you that you can eat more calories (and I was).
If the calories it says you are burning is inaccurate, then you have a problem.
So Im taking the extra step to go in and look at the number of calories IN, instead of the net calories (calories in and then subtract a number of calories burned).
From the Mailbag
I love your podcast!
I look forward to it very week. Keep up the great work. Stay honest. Stay true to yourself.
You are such an inspiration for me.
My current struggle is trying to cut out the C-R-A-P that has found its way back into my daily life.
I lost 50 pounds (from 200-yikes! down to a sleek150-size 8)
by cutting out all the processed, nutrition-less, Franken foods.
Yep just like you, I was focused on hydration, real food (mainly meat & vegetables), sleep and fitness.
I lost weight by having as many four-star days as possible. It took 9 months but I’ve kept it off since 2011.
Well almost. Truthfully, I’m bouncing around 157 now. I’m writing you because I’ve got to nip this in the bud. I look good. I feel good. I can still wear the same clothes, but everything is just a little too snug.
I’m reeling it in right here, right now. No cheats. No slips. No skipping exercise. For 30 days.
30 consecutive 4-star days should get me back down to 150 pounds and back on track to a lifetime of clean eating.
Come on Dave – we can do this!!
