Oh. My. Goodness. Sigh.

Trying to analyze here what went wrong. The biggest thing is that I am really not walking at all, I’m spending much more time at the computer, and feeling the weight of stress that I know won’t let up before the end of October (but it will definitely be gone by November 1).

I really didn’t want to post this result today, but I’m hoping that my transparency will keep those of you walking the journey with me, focused and encouraged. Looks like I really need the tip I shared this week on the N.A.V.Y. Challenge and so I’ll be focusing on that quite a bit today! How are you doing in your own weight loss challenge? Have you joined us yet at N.A.V.Y. (A New And Vital You)?

K, enough depressing news!
So, moving on to our Superfood segment!  This week we’re looking at Garlic.

I love garlic.  One of my favourite things is to take a full garlic bulb, peel each clove, score them a little and drop them in some organic, cold-pressed virgin olive oil and let them sit, and then use that as my salad oil and such.  But let’s take a look here at Garlic’s amazing qualities:

Garlic is an excellent source of the following:

Garlic can:

  • lower blood pressure
  • prevent blood from being overly sticky
  • lower LDL cholesterol (the “bad” one) while increasing the good HDL cholesterol
  • prevent “hardening” of the arteries
  • prevent cancer and toxicity from heavy metals in our bodies
  • help fight against common infections like stomach viruses, colds, flu and Candida yeast
  • reduce the pain and inflammation associated with both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • It may also protect diabetics from

However, eating too much could produce problems, for example irritation of or even damage to the digestive tract, so don’t overdo it!
