The updated and simplified program was created with you and your goals in mind.

Atkins is about eating delicious and healthy food — a variety of protein, leafy greens and other vegetables, nuts, fruits, and whole grains.

Perfect for busy lifestyles: you can stick with Atkins at work, at home, on vacation, when you’re eating out — wherever you are.

I personally know this is a good diet for anyone wanting to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle. A nutritionist from the Veterans Hospital recommended this diet for my husband. I prepared his meals, along with being coached and monitored by his nutritionist, developing a walking regiment and changing his snack foods to healthier recommended snacks, he lost a total of 45 lbs in 1 year.  

This is an easy and simple diet to follow because it mostly consist of foods you eat every day,

protein, leafy vegetables, nuts, fruits and whole grains.

This diet is easy to follow at work, at home, on vacation, anywhere.  This diet focuses on a healthy, enjoyable, and doable lifestyle of eating and getting satisfaction and fullfillment from what you eat. I highly recommend this diet, especially if you are a big eater.

“For once, a book where the scientific facts outweigh the hype and where the results fulfill the promise. Once you have read the book, your diet and lifestyle will never be the same.” — Dr. William J. Kraemer, professor of kinesiology, University of Connecticut

Big Men Fashion Trends- Over the years

I grew up in a farm area in the south, when the farmers dressed up they were usually headed to church or the Doctor’s office. I saw fashion trends that would be unbelievable to some, my children  would laugh when I told them of some of the men fashion trends I had seen in my life.                                                                                                                                       couple-618200_640                                                                                                                                                                                                                          My Grandfather lived with us, I don’t know for how long because I was only about six years old when I became aware of him being my Grandfather. He was a country preacher and a sharecropper. I know he probably wore work clothes most of the time but I only remember him wearing dress suits and the way they always smelled like juicy fruit chewing gum. Growing up in my small world, when you saw a man with a suit on he most likely was a preacher. I don’t know how many suits he owned but I think they was worn year round. I remember them being what I now know was wool and they were very heavy and always a dark color.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        My Father was a preacher and sharecropper also, we were very poor. My father was also a very big man, talk about fashion trends, my Daddy was not to be outdone. I’ve witness him letting out trousers so they would fit him, adding a piece in the back of a vest so he would be able to button it, adding an extension to his pant leg so they would be long enough to have a decent hem (yes my Daddy could sew) and doing all sorts of alterations to make what he had work. We have indeed come a long way.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          In the 1930’s the big double breasted, full cut trousers, tuxedos with tails was the trend (for people of means, not poor farmers). I imagine this was a style my Granddaddy and my Daddy tried or wished they could copy. For the common folk and maybe for everyone, the effects of the Great Depression was being felt. Fashion became more compromising, they became more somber and modest, reflecting the difficulties of the decade.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                This was the beginning of the breakdown of fashion being advertised as a divide between the high society and the working class. This was the beginning of nice, good clothes being available to everyone. The increase in overhead and raw material was beginning to regulate handmade fashion to the sidelines. Developing new technologies made it easy to manufacture factory made ( off the rack) fashions. The old world of hand made, tailored especially for you, was taking it’s final bow out.  Changes in fashion was one of the most visible changes in this time. The working class, who had been restricted in their choices of clothing, found that they could enjoy an enlarged freedom of choice in fashion.                                                                                                                                   vintage-1047275_640                                                                                                                                                                                                                         From then to now, many styles have come and gone, all working toward the relaxed look, aiming toward outfits being timeless, flattering, simply cut and photogenic. The phobia of being underdressed has been wiped out by the fear of being overdressed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  store-984393_640                                                                                          My Grandfather and Father always dressedup  in what they thought was a fashionable suit, My siblings and I dressedup in what was our good clothes, along with stockings, arms covered and the girls always wore dresses to school and church. My children wear whatever they feel like wearing, they are not concerned about being overdressed or underdressed, they shop off the rack from any store and are not ashamed. At church they feel just as comfortable in their jeans as I do in my Sunday-go-to-meeting dress or my husband in his big men fashion attire. Yes indeed, fashion trends are constantly changing. I have a lot of stories about my family fashion trends through the years, they are funny and sometimes pitiful, stay tuned.

           Gold Bond Foot Powder Spray Review                                                                                     

As we age our body change. Our feet especially. They began to show signs of wear. We begin seeing cracked heels, our toe nails becoming infected with fungus and fungus growing between our toes, corns, bunions, bones curling outward or inward and sometimes pain.

My brother has fungus between his toes, I soak his feet one a week in a solution his Doctor suggested, I dry them really well, (I’ve even used a blowdryer), then I apply Gold Bond Spray.

We need to be extra careful with our feet, small problems become big problems when not taken care of, sometimes by the time you realize this, you are seeking a foot Doctor.

I take care of a disabled brother, I do his feet. In shopping around for some good over the counter foot care products, I came across Gold Bond. I remember always seeing this in my childhood home. My Daddy used this but I never gave it any thought. When you’re young, you usually have perfect little feet so you don’t worry about foot problems.

About the Product
  • Triple Action Relief: Cools, Absorbs Moisture and Controls Foot Odor
  • 360 Degree Valve: Spray in any direction – even upside down
  • 2 Times the Odor absorbing powder of Gold Bond Powder Spray so your Feet Stay Cool and Fresh
  • Contains no CFCs

Cheapest place to buy is at                   

This spray works for my brother, I use this spray about every three days and his feet stays dry, moisture promotes the growth of fungus and fungus causes discomfort.

His feet nor his shoes never has an unpleasant odor. My husband also uses this product, works well for him, especially the spray, as I’ve stated before, my husband is a big man, the spray allows him to make less of a mess when he uses it. It has a very pleasant scent and sprays almost at any angle

We all have different skin types, every thing does not work for every one so if this does not work for you, try another spray or powder, it pays off in the long run.
