First week of Paleo: So far so good

You know, it's really difficult for me to admit, but so far so good. After my first week on Paleo, I've dropped three pounds and feel less bloated. I don't seem to retain water as much – even after a dinner of kraut and brats. Normally that's good for about five extra pounds the following 48 hours. This go around, not an ounce. Don't ask me to explain, it's just how it is. I can already notice less bulk around my mid-section.

Lifestyle columnist goes ‘paleo’

Let me be upfront. Since my early teens, I have always had to "watch" my weight. Didn't matter if I was on a softball team, ran track or was on a 7-day-a-week workout schedule, I still had to be careful what I ate. Thus, I think I may have tried about every "diet" known to man.

Let’s return game to a family event

In recent years, the Super Bowl has become a family affair for us, and it isn't because of the football. The Chiefs have lacked a little...success over the past few years (or decades) so obviously we can't watch them in the championship game. So we huddle around the TV with our snacks and cheer on our favorite commercials and watch the half-time entertainment, a fun light-hearted event without the seriousness or intensity of March Madness.

Right to keep and bear arms

When the framers of our constitution constructed the Bill of Rights, they did so with the gravity and attentiveness it deserved. These "limitations" to government were to protect the natural rights of property and (most importantly) liberty of American citizens.

It's not all Greek to me

The financial situation and recent elections in Greece are once again bringing to the forefront the deficit issues in our own country. Admirably, the citizens of Greece elected the party vowing to stay in the European Union but work toward reducing the harsh terms of the bailout program.
