The altered microbial activity mirrored the differences seen between plant-eating and carnivorous animals.

Last month I went to a seminar for a weekend. I find that typically, I sleep poorly and wind up with heartburn eating the food they lay out for snacks and lunch. Usually eating out at each meal doesn't help much either.
However, last seminar I attended I used our hotel gym services and found I slept a little better than usual. I also chose to eat light at our lunches by choosing fresh fruit and yogurt rather than the meat sandwiches and coffee. At dinner my colleaugue and I found a Greek restaurant that offered some excellent seafood and grilled chicken with salads.
Typically after a long weekend of seminars and commuting, I would feel tired and in need of a few days off before starting my work week. This time by minding my food intake better and taking the time to get up to exercise, I had no ill effects of being stuck indoors all weekend without the comforts of home.

Recently I made a commitment for mine and my husband's health. I commited to have a walk after dinner every night. One night we had hail and tonight we had snow. I recall in one of my antique homeopathic texts that the doctor recommended those with tuberculosis walk every day outside because it improves the immune system and sunshine beats tb. Now it is dark after dinner but it beats turning on the boob tube to watch mindless shows. Not only is simple walking good for our health, it burns off some of the calories from our dinner but it gives us a chance to talk in private. Lastly our dog really appreciates it too.
