Weight Loss Success - Joan Marie Verba

Like you, I have lost weight and gained it back. I have started exercise programs and not stuck to them. But, in 1979, I lost weight and have kept it off since then.
If you also have tried to lead a healthy lifestyle and found your efforts didn’t work in the past, I have good news: I have found that the secret to maintaining a healthy lifestyle is having fun.
Success comes through having fun. Isn’t that great?
The motto that inspires me is: “Do one thing every day that makes you happy.” Why? Because when you participate in activities that are fun for you, you’ll stick with them. When you find nutritional, healthy foods that you enjoy, you’ll eat them. When you are spending your time on fun activities, you won’t have the time to be stressed (and you’ll avoid emotional eating)!

Shepard’s Guide to Mastering French Wines - William s. Shepard
Genre - Food, Wine

William S. Shepard, Wine Editor for French Wine Explorers, now offers a completely updated revision of his well-regarded 2003 Guide to French wines and their regions of origin. This 2011 Kindle second edition retains the thoroughness – and the humor – of the original. The author wants the reader to stop relying on point scores, and develop his or her own good taste in appreciating these fine wines. And this new second edition includes the Bordeaux vintages of 2005, 2009 and 2010, and the celebrated Burgundy vintage of 2009.
Shepard belongs to five prestigious French wine societies, but his knowledge is worn lightly. As your own knowledge of wines increases, you may want to take his advice and start your own wine cellar. Several specific possibilities are outlined here, so that your own cellar could include fine samples from Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Rhône Valley, Alsace and Champagne.
Are you on a budget? You’ll be glad to know that special attention is given to less expensive wines which deserve to be better known. For example, the effervescent Crémant wines receive their due recognition in the chapter dealing with Champagne. (They are delicious – and cost perhaps one-third of the price for a nonvintage champagne from a prestigious house such as Taittinger or Pol Roger. Here alone, the savings from just one purchase more than cover the cost of the book.) Do join him in relishing the inexpensive wines of the French Southwest, such as Madiran and Cahors.
The book is user friendly, with logical progression from the regions of Bordeaux (the Médoc, St. Emilion and Pomerol) to Burgundy (with separate chapters for the celebrated regions of the Côte d’Or), Champagne, and the Rhône Valley. The book has embedded dozens of hyperlinks to websites from the wine producers of each region, so the reader can go instantly from Shepard’s Guide to the region itself. That is particularly useful if the reader, as Shepard urges, wishes to make personal appointments throughout the region. Here are the email contacts to do precisely that, while still reading the book!
There is special consideration for the great white wines of France, whether the magnificent white Burgundy wines, or those of Champagne or Bordeaux. Tasting notes of recent vintages abound, so that the reader can expand his knowledge of the finest wines. The world of Sauternes is made accessible, and many readers will particularly enjoy his final chapter, on Cognac and Armagnac.
The author knows many French wine producers and has personally visited over sixty of their estates, in every region. Join him for a wine reading adventure that turns into more appreciation for the glories of French wines. Whether it’s Beaujolais, the summer wines of the Loire Valley, or the robust wines of Châteauneuf du Pape, your favorite wines are here.
For less money than you’d pay for a single glass of wine, treat yourself to the best guide to French wines!
