Dr. Tim Says...
Happy New Year and happy resolution time.
Yep, it's that time again and most everyone makes some sort of resolution for the new year. The two most common are losing weight and stopping smoking. There's tons of advertising now directed at both and for good reason. Research shows that by picking a date, any date, the chance of success is higher. The new year is a good time but an anniversary or someone's birthday works just as well.
Many of my patients resolve to lose weight. This year I'm trying to convince my patients to make two changes in their resolutions. The first is to not focus on weight loss as the key change but to simply work at eating better. The second is to not make all the changes at once. Research shows that gradual, small changes in lifestyle are the ones that have the most effect and last the longest. New Year's 2007
Featured Recipe: Blueberry Muffins
This is a great muffin that’s so much better for you than a regular muffin. When I started with Dr. Gourmet I wanted to make food that people found familiar but healthier. This takes that a step further than the previous Blueberry Muffins posted on the web site because of the higher fiber content. One taster said that these “are so much better tasting than the original.” That’s what great food is -- good food that just happens to be better for you. Blueberry Muffins
Ask Dr. Gourmet
My daughter has been diagnosed with Sprue. They're putting her on a gluten free diet. I would like to help her and wondered which diet on your site would be best for her and her needs. This is going to be life changing for her and I want to help as much as possible. You have helped me so much, I hope you can help her.

Thanks so very much for your nice words about the Dr. Gourmet web site. We have a number of questions from users about celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. This is an important issue and will be a focus for Dr. Gourmet in the coming months. Diets for Gluten Sensitivity
