Boost your looks with Lisa's Style Tips!
- 13. Dresses with angled shirring in front will give a waist if you want to give the illusion of having a thinner waistline.
- 12. Using a layer of either a sweater or jacket with a more fitted top will give a slimming effect.
- 11. For full figured woman, wearing fitted clothes is more slimming then loose pieces but balance is important so break it up by doing things like a slimmer pant and slightly fuller top.
- 10. Wearing ligter colors on top and darker collors on the bottom will slim the bottom half so for the rest of us, this works great!!
- 9. Wearing dark colors on top and lighter colors on your bottom half will add weight to your bottom half and shorten you. You can pull this off brilliantly if your tall and slim.
- 8. If you love your legs wearing a distinct shoe with a bold color with bring the eye to your legs when pared with a neutral toned outfit.
- 7. Use prints and patterns as well as bold colors to draw attention to your favorite parts! For instance if you love your upper body and don't particularly love your legs, wearing a pinstripe jacket or a bold colored dress would draw attention away from your legs and to the upper part of your body.
- 6. If you have a short neck wear open necklines such as a v-neck to elongate the upper body.
- 5. If your high waisted, the opposite it true. Wear a more high waist pant or skirt, or belt tops, dresses and jackets a bit above the waist. This will give a more balanced appearance.
- 4. If you are short waisted wear skirts and pants that are more low rise, with the waistband faling more on the hips rather then the waist.
- 3. For those with a smaller upper body and heavier bottom half wear tops that are more snug and bottoms that are fuller. An example of this is an a-line skirt pared with a knit pullover.
- 2. When wearing a skirt or dress, to elonate legs, wear heels with no ankle strap.
- 1. To give a longer leaner look to yourself wear tone on tone. For example a cream top and pants with nude shoes is not only a fresh look but it gives the allusion that you are taller and leaner.
Remember, there's always time for style!

In the last 50 years there has been an alarming decline in the nutrient content in American food. It has been estimated that you would need to eat fifty peaches today to get the vitamin A of one peach from 1950. More than two independent studies have shown the antioxidant content of American food has declined 50% measured in 2005 versus in 1980. These studies, along with dozens of others, mandate the importance of assuring comprehensive nutrition which could only be accomplished using supplementation.

90% of the time, we have control of what we eat. We stock our own refrigerators, plan our own meals, pack our own lunchboxes, and pick which restaurants we eat at (or at least make our own choices off the menu). Equipped with this knowledge, I'd like to welcome you to my next law of nutrition: The Plan.

As a society, we are mostly eating cooked food when we were engineered to consume raw food. Eating cooked food triggers a loss of many methyl (a single carbon and three hydrogen molecule) groups per cell per day. Eating raw food can help you lose about 30% less methyl groups per cell per day. This daily demethylation process is one of the major ways in which we age.

Human beings need energy to survive - to breathe, move, pump blood, and think - and they get this energy from calories in foods and beverages. When a food or beverage contains 100 calories, that is a way of describing how much energy our body gets from eating or drinking it. How many calories we need each day depends on many things: our gender, height, weight, age, and activity level among them.

One of the most important health benefits we get from beverages is liquid! The good news is that all beverages can contribute to our daily liquid needs. Why is liquid important? Water is the largest single constituent of the human body and is essential for life. Water is necessary for transporting nutrients to cells and waste products out of the body. It provides lubrication for joints and cushioning for vital organs and skin. It is needed to regulate body temperature, for muscle function, for optimal performance, and to prevent dehydration. Water comprises 75% of the body weight in infants, 62% of body weight of an adult, and 55% in the elderly.
