WELCOME THE UNCONVENTIONAL THANKSGIVING

FROM THE DESK OF Bob Norton

I recently started an experiment. I came across some anecdotal

information (in a philosophy book) that hypothesized that modern diets of three meals a day are causing some of our modern health problems due to the fact that the human body evolved with periods of scarce food sources.

The hypothesis is that human bodies need periods without food for optimum health.

I started setting aside whole days when I would only drink liquids. At first, it was one day per week; now, it is two. Typically, I do Mondays and Fridays, which are convenient for my schedule. I drink beef broth and water on no-food days. On the days that I eat meals, I start the day with a low-carb meal. And, I only eat two meals a day of anything that I want. I have been doing this for about three months, and so far I’ve lost 10 pounds; plus, I feel so much better. Surprisingly, I don’t get too hungry on no-food days. I’m planning on trying this experiment for a year. What are some experiments that you’ve tried lately?

Some people love Thanksgiving just the way it is, but others feel the annual traditions that come with it are stifling. If you’re dreading the inevitable conversation about whose house to go to, which side dishes to cook, and who to invite to the table, why not mix things up for 2019? Just because Thanksgiving falls on the same fourth Thursday each November doesn’t mean you’re locked into the same holiday routine. If you’re stuck in a Turkey Day rut, try one of these alternate celebrations and enjoy the spirit of gratitude in a new way. TV shows love to draw up stories about devastated characters forced to spend Thanksgiving without their extended families, but really, what’s so bad about making Thanksgiving an intimate affair? Big, boisterous Thanksgivings with every uncle, cousin, and stepsister certainly have their downsides. Slaving over the stove is stressful, and bringing people from so many different walks of life together can cause heated arguments. Why not skip the drama this Thanksgiving and enjoy a romantic dinner with your significant other or a cozy meal with your spouse and kids? You can cook together at home or grab a table at a restaurant with a Turkey Day special to leave the stress of cooking behind entirely. In the end, you may be even more grateful for those you hold dear. ‘JUST US’THANKSGIVING
