I was torn about posting this. On the one hand, I feel like everyone knows a pound of fat is 3500 calories, so it is redundant. On the other, there is a lot of good information in it besides the 3500 calories.  Hope you find it useful.

20 Benefits of Walking – Infographic

I couldn’t be a bigger fan of walking. I consider walking to be the Cinderella of the exercise world. Maybe the Rodney Dangerfield would be more accurate. Nobody gives it very much respect. Yet it benefits us in so many ways.


Although Number six said it is a low impact exercise, it is nonetheless a weight bearing exercise which we all need for strong bones.

Please don’t stop here. I have a Page dedicated to the benefits of walking – Why You Should Walk More. There are lots more ways that your body, brain and mind can benefit.

Higher Perspective says, “So the best time to eat a banana? When it’s fully ripe. But it’s worth noting, if you suffer Type 2 diabetes, you may want to eat a ripe banana with nut butter. The fat in the butter will slow down sugar absorption in your blood stream so it doesn’t hit you all at once.”

What are the KEY Numbers to My Good Health? – Infographic

Regular readers are by now keenly aware that I love infographics. As an old journalist, I am knocked out by the amount of information they can convey in a very short space or period of time. I think your investing a minute or two to dig through this one will yield you some very useful facts for keeping your body in tiptop shape.

I love the little one in the corner that says, “300 is the amount of extra calories often consumed by those who don’t get a good night’s sleep.” That one alone was worth your visiting the blog today.

I hope you have a happy productive day!
