Consumer Reports on the Best of Health

Journal Entry: Weight = 172.0; Coinage = $.80, 20 pennies, 3 nickels, 2 dimes, 1 quarter; Glass bottles retrieved = 8; Ground scores = 3; Best coinage find = a dime in a graveled street parking area, one without a curb. Coins in these types of terrain are very hard to spot.

Feature Entry: I like Consumer Reports. Because they do not accept advertising, I trust their recommendations. Today I receive an invitation to receive two free reports: an issue of “Consumer Reports on Health” and a special report, “The Best of Health.” I must subscribe to receive the free material, but I can cancel after one month and owe nothing.

In the promotion materials were several interesting snippets from their health reports. One feature article was titled, “Should I Eat This?” and followed with this interesting promotion blurb:

It's not easy to know what you should and shouldn't eat. This exclusive guide from Consumer Reports brings you unbiased facts about foods that can help you lose weight, reduce stress, sleep better and still enjoy many of the foods you love. Learn how to put yourself on the track to good, healthy eating!

Stay tuned! After receiving the two issues, I will provide a review.

  1. Oh dear... my entire diet will probably be included in the "shouldn't" list.

    My husband has the most self-control of any person I have ever met. His diet and lifestyle is probably one of the healthiest you could ever find (sometimes bordering on obnoxious and causing much guilt for me). I guess it's true what they say about opposites attracting each other. Oh, but I do love him. Without his influence I would be in serious trouble!
