My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:

Last month HealthCentral published five more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:

Even when we have diabetes we can always begin our life anew. Making a New Year’s resolution can help us achieve our goal.

Just deciding to eat less doesn’t work. When we diet for diabetes and weight loss management, we have to change fundamental behaviors.

Seven Diabetes Challenges When You Low Carb
A low carb diet can make managing diabetes easier and leads to weight loss. But we have to get over the initial hurdles first.

Help Arrives for Diabetes Supplements
Most of us take some supplements every day. But few of us have any idea what we are taking. Help has begun to arrive.

Fitness and Photograph for Fun:

Last month I published two more of my articles on staying fit by getting the activity we need. Photography gets me to hike, and hiking keeps me fit:

Carolyn Holmberg Preserve
The beauty of nature is all around us even in winter. We just have to get out and look for it. I found it in mid-winter in cold Boulder County, Colorado.

Josh’s Pond
