With today's uncertainty and our economy, I believe we should take personal responsibility for our health in order to prevent many illnesses and diseases. So much can be changed about our health and well-being if we just changed our eating habits and increased intake of water. I contacted Lyn-Genet after reading her story in More July/August. That day I was curled up in a ball with a blanket feeling so bad and thinking I had a terminal disease and my new husband was going to watch me die. Her method of healthy eating gave me new hope and I was eager to try her suggestions and read everything she has ever put in writing. I was suffering from hip pain, leg pain and arthritis in my right foot. I had to hold onto the banister to climb the stairs and I felt pain in those areas most of the time. After my first contact with her, she was so kind to send me a list of reactive foods to avoid and selections to eat for the first three days. In just 24 hours I was pain free. I have learned, while I thought I was eating a perfectly healthy diet, many of us cannot eat certain foods just because the mass media says we should. Salmon two times a week is not for everyone. The other white meat (pork) is poison to me. My experimenting goes on daily and I am truly listening to my body. I can move faster, climb stairs, feel wonderful and have not had a meal from her suggestions that I didn't enjoy. I don't feel hungry, although, the foods are light and very low in fat. I know I am not as energetic if I have not had the two liters of water each day. My new way of eating will stay with me for many years and I am looking forward to physical activities I have not participated in for a very long time.

I have been reading your magazine for around a year now. And I quite like it. I have however found something that I am annoyed by. It concerns the clothing styles. I find that I much like the styles and therefore when listed I go to the website to take a closer look and possibly order. But when I get to the website the items are not there. This has happened several times. So I thought with this new issue I would write you with my examples. For instance of the July/Aug issue on page 30 item 4 the shorts. I went to the website goldyandmac.com. The shorts are not in their line. Then on page 104, item 9 is for nautica.com. I also went there and could not fine that top. I did look at other places for that top too that I know sells Nautica, but no luck. I have a feeling it was never for sale in their line. This is so disappointing to me.
I am hoping for future magazines that if it is printed where the items can be found, the source is researched more.
Thank you for your time in reading this.
