Very busy week. Family, friends, and business. Next week is our annual distributor meeting. So much to do. And, as they say, so little time. Thank goodness for Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating. You know I’m always stressing the convenience. Well, I like it too. Being able to grab the meals from the fridge, use the microwave as appropriate, and place the meal on a plate is not only healthy and calorie-wise, it’s also a huge time-saver. Works for everyone, including Kelly and me.

Goodbye to our cabbage roll! A few people like it, but—judging from your comments—not many. So this week was its last week on the Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating menu.
Mmmm, I’m sure its replacement will be very popular. Get ready for our Roasted Vegetable Wrap! It’s a flat wrap served with roasted zucchini, corn red peppers and black beans, and marinated seasonings. And the side dish?
Double mmmm. Think of a whipped sweet potato casserole with pecans on top. I’m very excited.

A study by researchers at the University of Washington found that 1 in 50 people die within one month of having gastric bypass surgery, and that figure jumps nearly fivefold if the surgeon is inexperienced.
So when a reader recently queried us regarding that surgery, I recommended against it. Instead, why not try Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating? Lose weight and learn how to eat right, be healthy, and keep away those lost pounds.
I know what you may be thinking. People who choose gastric bypass surgery need to lose hundreds of pounds. They think the operation is their only choice.
But that’s not true. Many people lose hundreds of pounds by following the Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating meal plan. And that’s a fact.

I read in the paper where a man would not take his mother-in-law on trips anymore because she was obese and it took too much fuel to transport her.
Yes, this is true and not a mother-in-law’s gag. I value the in-law relationship. It’s all family, after all.
Perhaps the driver was using his wife's mother’s weight as an excuse, but the fact remains that obesity is very costly. Do you know that the overweight require more than $10,000 (on average) of additional medical care during their lifetime?
Gaining extra weight can happen to anyone—especially in our affluent society. It used to be that people thought the poor were more likely to be obese, but now it’s getting to be everyone.
My hope is that Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating will help people muster their strength to overcome bad eating habits. In my opinion, most so-called diets aren’t educative and do punish the body. Weight is lost, but then regained.
Believe me, please, when I tell you of the many, many people who inform us they have tried other diets—and even lost weight—but in the end find themselves worse than when they began—overweight or obese again, and more cynical than ever about their chances for success.
In my experience, and in the experience of hundreds of thousands of others, Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating is different. People eat right, lose weight, and learn to keep it off. Healthier bodies, yes, as I may have mentioned. But that’s not all. Healthier attitudes, too.

Did you know that recent studies have shown that wages for women in the workplace decrease when they are overweight?
She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
