Yes, I’m finally losing weight, and you can too. But you may need to open your mind to a new way of thinking about the foods you eat.
I have been a dieter for almost thirty years. During that time, I have had very little success. I might lose a few pounds, but they usually find me again and bring along some friends. This time things are different.
I’m going low-carb. I’ve been reading about our grains and how they have become genetically modified, grown in chemically saturated soil, and then sprayed with known cancer-causing pesticides. As an example, I learned that Glyphosate (also known as RoundUp and a proven carcinogen) is sprayed indiscriminately over large tracts of land, resulting in huge overspray problems with virtually zero control over where the stuff lands, or whose food is contaminated.
All this has helped to keep me out of the bread basket, and the weight is coming off. Not by leaps and bounds, but steadily and that’s good enough for me. As I write this I’m almost 25 pounds lighter!
My avoidance of grains began as my husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. We began reading about the effect of carbohydrates on blood sugar. This was eye-opening to say the least. Biotech firms are always looking to up productivity and I see where all that is very appealing to farmers, but there’s a down side to all this- what’s being put in and what’s being left out.
One thing going on is we are growing fatter and suffering from malnutrition. Diabetes, heart disease, and cancer rates show no sign of going down. There’s also the problem of our soil becoming toxic, and the decrease in bee and butterfly populations.
Don’t look to either side of the political aisle to help with what’s going on with our agricultural health. Big biotech firms contribute to both party’s candidates with campaign donations. This mess isn’t going to clear up by itself, but we can help.
The power of the consumer is not to be overlooked. Here are a few practical steps you can take:
- At the grocery store look for that cute NON-GMO label.
- Visit your local farm markets and frequent the organic, NON-GMO independent farmer.
- If you can, make every effort to grow or raise your own food. The whole family will benefit not only from eating real food, but all the outdoor activity that comes with it.
We have to watch out for our own healthy living, no one is going to do it for us. Personal responsibility in this is really going to pay off.

Even today when I talk about low carb and low sugar eating in my weight loss support group, I face a brick wall of skepticism…
I have been a frustrated dieter for twenty-eight years. I’ve had a little success here and there, but for the most part, the scale kept going higher and higher and I kept buying bigger and bigger clothes. But I got serious last year and I faced my enemy.
I used to not want to admit it, but we live in an unstable world, and it is getting more dangerous as the days go by. I believe that preparing our families for what lies ahead is amongst the most critically important things that we can do.

With a modern horsepower rating of around 95-100, the 4020 is far from the most powerful tractor available to today’s farmers. That said, it is perfect for the small to medium size farm with 50 or more acres of crops to plant, fertilize, and harvest.
Yes a pistol will kill. But with a handgun, shot placement and the ability to put more than one rounds in a target quickly is what will win the day.

Are old combat rifles still a viable defensive option for gun owners? Can a World War II rifle still be an effective choice for prepping? You’d be surprised how often this kind of questions are asked. And the answer is, it depends.
