¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

  1. Add just one fruit or veggie serving daily. Get comfortable with that and then add an extra serving until you reach 8 to 10 a day.
  2. Eat at least two servings of a fruit or veggie at every meal.
  3. Resolve never to super size your food portions (unless you want to super size your clothes).
  4. Make eating purposeful, not mindless. Whenever you put food in your mouth, peel it, unwrap it, plate it and sit. Engage all of the senses in the pleasure of nourishing your body.
  5. Start eating a big breakfast. It helps you eat fewer total calories throughout the day.
  6. Make sure your plate is half veggies and/or fruit at both lunch and dinner.
  7. Eating out? Halve it, and bag the rest. A typical restaurant entree has 1,000 to 2,000 calories, not even counting the bread, appetizer, beverage and dessert.
  8. When dining out, make it automatic: Order one dessert to share.
  9. Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate.
  10. See what you eat. Plate your food instead of eating out of the jar or bag.
  11. Eat the low-cal items on your plate first, and then graduate. Start with salads, veggies, and broth soups, and eat meats and starches last. By the time you get to them, you'll be full enough to be content with smaller portions of the high-calorie choices.
  12. Instead of whole milk, switch to 1 percent. If you drink one 8-oz glass a day, you'll lose 5 lbs in a year.
  13. Juice has as many calories, ounce for ounce, as soda. Set a limit of one 8-oz glass of fruit juice a day.
  14. Get calories from foods you chew, not beverages. Have fresh fruit instead of fruit juice.
  15. Keep a food journal. It really works wonders.
  16. Follow the Chinese saying: "Eat until you are eight-tenths full."
  17. Use mustard instead of mayo.
  18. Eat more soup. The non-creamy ones are filling but low-cal.
  19. Cut back on or cut out caloric drinks such as soda, sweet tea, lemonade, etc. People have lost weight by making just this one change. If you have a 20-oz bottle of Coca-Cola every day, switch to Diet Coke. You should lose 25 lbs in a year.
  20. Take your lunch to work.
  21. Sit when you eat.
  22. Dilute juice with water.
  23. Have mostly veggies for lunch.
  24. Eat at home.
  25. Limit alcohol to weekends.

  1. BAD NEWS:

    For in it the righteousness of
    God is revealed from faith to
    faith; as it is written, "The just
    shall live by faith." For the wrath
    of God is revealed from heaven
    against all ungodliness and
    unrighteousness of men, who
    suppress the truth in unright -
    eousness, because what may
    be known of God is manifest
    in them, for God has shown
    it to them.

    For since the creation of the
    world His invisible attributes
    are clearly seen, being under -
    stood by the things that are
    made, even His eternal power
    and Godhead, so that they are
    without excuse, because,
    although they knew God,
    they did not glorify Him as
    God, nor were thankful,
    but became futile in their
    thoughts, and their foolish
    hearts were darkened.

    Professing to be wise,
    they became fools,
    and changed the glory
    of the incorruptible
    God into an image made
    like corruptible man -
    and birds and four -
    footed animals and
    creeping things.

    Therefore God
    also gave them up
    to uncleanness, in
    the lusts of their
    hearts, to dishonor
    their bodies among
    themselves, who
    exchanged the truth
    of God for the lie,
    and worshiped and
    served the creature
    rather than the Creator,
    who is blessed forever.

    For this reason God
    gave them up to vile
    passions. For even
    their women exchanged
    the natural use for what
    is against nature. Likewise
    also the men, leaving the
    natural use of the woman,
    burned in their lust for one
    another, men with men
    committing what is shameful,
    and receiving in themselves
    the penalty of their error which
    was due. And even as they
    did not like to retain God in
    their knowledge, God gave
    them over to a debased mind,
    to do those things which are
    not fitting; being filled with all
    unrighteousness, sexual immorality,
    wickedness, covetousness,
    maliciousness; full of envy,
    murder, strife, deceit,
    evil-mindedness; they are
    whisperers, backbiters,
    haters of God, violent,
    proud, boasters, inventors
    of evil things, disobedient
    to parents, undiscerning,
    untrustworthy, unloving,
    unforgiving, unmerciful;
    who, knowing the righteous
    judgment of God, that those
    who practice such things
    are deserving of death,
    not only do the same
    but also approve of
    those who practice them.

    We know these laws are
    good when they are used
    as God intended.

    But they were not made
    for people who do what
    is right. They are for people
    who are disobedient and
    rebellious, who are ungodly
    and sinful, who consider
    nothing sacred and defile
    what is holy, who murder
    their father or mother or
    other people.

    These laws are for people
    who are sexually immoral,
    for homosexuals and slave
    traders, for liars and oath
    breakers, and for those who
    do anything else that contradicts
    the right teaching


    For the wages of sin is death,
    but the gift of God is eternal
    life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


    The United States government
    has just released a nation-wide
    survey on Americans' private
    sexual habits. The NEW YORK
    TIMES describes it as disclosing
    "surprising numbers for same-sex

    Surprising is the right word, but not
    in the way I suspect the NEW YORK
    TIMES means.

    The study was done by the National
    Center for Health Statistics, part of
    the Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention. Among other statistics,
    the study indicates that only about
    4 percent of men and women consider
    themselves to be homosexual or bisexual.

    Indeed, among men ages 18 to 44,
    90 percent call themselves heterosexual,
    2 percent homosexual, 2 percent bisexual,
    and 4 percent something else. Among
    women, 86 percent are attracted only
    to men, and 10 percent "mostly" to males.

    In both cases it is a long way from the 10
    percent that the homosexual lobby has
    advanced for years. We are told that
    homosexual behavior is simply a choice
    and that we're bigoted if we do not
    believe it to be the norm. But any time
    you look at statistics and find less than
    10 percent engaging in a particular
    activity, it is contrary to the norm.
    The norm is what the 90 percent does.

    There are profound social consequences
    here. If sexual orientation is a choice,
    then we're free to choose. But this study
    implies that we're wired a certain
    way, for heterosexual relationships.

    As philosopher J. Budziszewski says,
    there are some things we "can't not

    One of those things is that we're
    biologically made a certain way:
    males one way and females another.
    That's the way the world works,
    and it's the only natural way to
    conceive children.

    And when you go against the way
    the world is made, you're going
    against the grain of the universe.
    And no amount of propaganda
    or clever marketing, which is
    what it is, can change the
    unalterable facts of the natural
    moral order.

    It's time we recognize that and
    stop being bullied by special interests.

    But whether we should have spent
    the money this way or not, we do
    now have the report. It does show
    us something that needs to be
    understood in American life.
    It has a profound impact on the
    political and cultural debates of
    our day in ways that I'm sure does
    indeed surprise the staff of the
