An old friend dropped by the other day. She’s changed a lot over the years. Led a very interesting life, with more than her share of challenges along the way.
As we gathered in the kitchen to prepare a light lunch together, and mixed up a bunch of our mutual old-time favorite snacks, she said,
“You know, the food we eat is an ethical statement. What we eat, or don’t eat. If we over-eat. How our food is packaged. Where our food comes from. Who grows it. How it is grown and prepared. These are all ethical statements.”
Now, days later, I’ve had some time to contemplate what she said. It really made me think:
“Eating is an ethical statement.” Is it? What do you think?
Would “ethically eating” make your day lighter?

Boyd, a recovering Attorney, turned to weight loss research 20 years ago when he lost his mother to the lifelong effects of obesity. He has spent the ensuing years searching the science, and formulating a comprehensive metabolic map of the body — the only complete map of its kind. The map reveals the causes and effects of obesity and related chronic lifestyle diseases. It shows the only proven pathways to preventing and losing excess weight. From that unique foundation, he and his team created a weight loss education program that has helped tens of thousands to lose weight and keep it off. Plus, they created innovative and fun fitness and nutrition education programs for elementary school children, proven to reduce the early bio-markers for childhood obesity. HEART PLAN is a collection of his observations over the years of the emotional impact and motivational challenges nearly everyone faces when trying to keep lost weight off permanently.
