It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s…

Well, heck, this is no monopoly.  So, while you’re thinking “Superman,” you may as well let “Superwoman” into your thoughts too. 

And, of course, you cannot possibly be thinking of those two without — what else — flight.

 Hanging out on top of the world.

Yes, yes,  those caped crusaders are big on flying but, in this instance, I’m actually thinking of you.  So, in that vein, here’s the question:  How many times have you simply felt so great about yourself that you may just as well have been up there in the clouds somewhere?

That’s right — somewhere up there on cloud 9 probably humming  some such tune as “Believe it or not, I’m walking on air…  Flying away all winged outta breath, who could it be…?”

Well, believe it or not, it could definitely just be you, especially if you did what a friend did shortly after he had so generously helped me with a pressing computer problem.

“How can I compensate you for being so generous?” I asked.

“Just show me how to weight-train,” he countered.

“Ill do better than that,” I offered.  “I’ll give you some pretty good tips on diet.”


A few weeks later, he was up there in the clouds somewhere.  Walking on air.  “I’ve been overweight for years and I’ve tried all kinds of diets,” he said with a sigh,” but I’ve never experienced this kind of result.”   Thrilled, he began telling his friends about the strategy that had him turning into the incredible shrinking man.

Wanna shed some pounds and feel the air under your wings too?  Then regularly include in your diet what researchers used in one study to help their subjects loose  some 9 percent of their body weight.


Yes, turn your attention to the smoothie — a popular American indulgence.  But not just any smoothie.  No!  Sugar bombs won’t do!

But one thing is certain:  You’ll be healthier and you’ll hardly miss no longer making those daily visits to the “Sugar Rush” corner ice-cream store.

According to researchers, replacing two daily meals with smoothies containing whey powder — a protein with essential amino acids that build muscle and burn fat — could be a prescription for the most effective gut-busting formula anywhere. 

With this in your arsenal, you could — in no time — be superman or superwoman walking on air somewhere up there in the clouds.
