I LOVE your podcasts! Hooray! There is lots of good information here, including some I didn't already know, and I love how positive and healthy the advice given is. I'm a daily Whole Foods shopper and I'll be picking up some Alpha Lipoic Acid this afternoon - thanks for the reminder!

Another informative podcast! I have never heard that cinnamon or turmeric are thermogenic. That means more whole grain toast with cinnamon on it and more curry for me lol. Looking forward to the next podcasts in this series!! Thanks again

I was directed through mom*mom blog spot to your site and I am so glad she led me to your site. I found this pod cast extremely helpful as I have tried every diet in the book, healthy and otherwise, and have finally resigned myself to figuring out how to lose weight the healthy and holistic way. Thanks for the advice. I will definitely frequent your site from now on!

I often forget how important it is to stay hydrated and this has reminded me again that it is vital to my success. I will also be stopping by to pick up some Alpha Lipoic Acid this week. :-) I am so looking forward to the next in the series.

I've always been on the lookout for the fiber content in foods! I was also encouraged to hear about the benefits of Dandelion Root...someone gave me some tea with it in it and this makes me want to drink it!

I too was directed to your site by a link to ModMom. I am so glad. As a regular Wholefoods shopper, many come to me for advice onthe best organic and wholesome products and i direct them to your store. Having this podcast is such an added plus, as now i can direct them to listen and learn before making their shopping selections. All too often shoppers go to the market and do splurge shopping, having forgotten their lists at home. I love that in this podcst you focussed on the importance of hydration, along with maintaining a healthy digestive and metabolic system. So many times we try to lose weight and end up either sick or gaining it right back. instead, if we concentrate on feeding our bodies what they need to be healthy, weight will eventually get to where its supposed to be. You have done a great job in connecting the nutritional councel along with the revving up your metabolism advice. Up the water, add the turmeric( I use it daily along with curry on almost everything too), walk, and aff your soluable fiber. Once again Wholefoods, THANK YOU for a great job! Looking forward to all your podcasts.
