Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti : “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

"The bottom line is that the same supplement used by two different people for the same condition can produce two entirely different results. What does that mean? It means that gulping down "miracle herbs" and "miracle supplements" to treat disease is like trying to hit a clay pigeon in the sky, with a 22-caliber rifle . . . while blindfolded. The odds are very much against you.

The secret to health, the secret to all the success that the great alternative healers share, is that they look to raise every inch of a person's Personal Health Line. If you do that, if you raise the entire line, the odds are in your favor. In fact, it's almost impossible to miss."

on balancing blood sugar.
Jon Barron is the person to whom I turn to for verification, whenever I read about something new. (This doesn't mean I follow every recommendation he makes, or follow a vegetarian diet which he recommends - just that he writes with such clarity about complicated conditions and presents a scientific approach to the subject of nutritional therapy.

George Bernard Shaw

"It is easy... terribly easy... to shake a man's faith in himself. To take advantage of that, to break a man's spirit, is the devil's work"

actually probably 13 to 21

but memories of Pat Boon and heavy breakable black 75rpm records came to mind :)

13, 14 Xmas, 15 summer Prestatyn, 16 or 17 now dating Alan, 16/17 I made that dress and 20/21

I would say that I was 13, when I was probably first taken to the doctor who after weighing me said yes I was heavier than I looked and should lose some weight - a counting carbs diet ensued and fortunately worked. I went through my teens and college life a little bit heavier than the average and kept fairly steady between 9stone 3lbs and under 10. Slimming magazine was a monthly purchase and read from cover to cover. At college I hardly ever went to lunch and I danced a lot. I was quite shy and boys didn't really notice me but on the dance floor it was a different matter - get up with a friend for a fast jive and we were always split up!

no and I always felt that I was overweight - I feel angry about that but grateful that these important years were good
