First, it is stated that we should consume 8 servings of fruits and vegetables daily for a mood boost as produce may enhance optimism.

Following, it is explained, we are 10 times more likely to change bad habits if we tweet, track and reward.

As for tweeting, sharing our efforts creates accountability and support.

When tracking, one may monitor progress.

By treating, you reward your success, producing feel-good chemicals.

In an article, by Hallie Devine, to eat great and lose weight, requires one to consume enough micronutrients which aid in metabolism, appetite and energy.

Calcium is a bone-building mineral that also is a fat burner.

Reading this issue was definitely worth the while. Usually one is told unreal directions or suggestions in books and magazines.

The only problem I could see is knowing how to store 8 fruits and vegetables a day multiplied by 7 days in a week, with a month usually lasting 30 to 31 days! One would really have to be very creative...

All-in-all, a thumbs-up!
