Three meals a day . . . Or more?

Mackie Shilstone

As most of us were growing up, we were raised on the concept of eating three square meals a day -- breakfast, lunch and supper. This is the way our parents were raised and the way their parents were raised and probably their parents before them, as well. As we grew up we simply accepted this as the norm and when we had children of our own we began passing it on to them.

Lifestyle Management

During the years I was gathering material for my most recent book, Maximum Energy for Life (John Wiley & Sons, 2003), I learned a lot of startling facts about heart disease, its causes and how it might be prevented.

The book's intent, primarily, is to help the reader develop and fine tune an energetic lifestyle, rekindle their passion and motivation for living, manage stress for maximum performance levels and reduce the risk of heart disease and other preventable illnesses. I take the position that it's time to take back ownership of our health instead of renting it.
