CHARLEY’S FAMILY STEAK HOUSE (B) “I guess I’ll just have to find out if I can still cook like I used to,” thought Alex Pearson, manager of Charley’s Family Steak House No. 2, as he hung up the telephone. One of his cooks had just called in sick, one was in the hospital, and the other two were on vacation. He wasn’t too concerned, however, because the first two weeks in January were typically not very busy. Many of his steady customers made annual New Year’s resolutions about losing weight, and it usually took at least a week for them to resume their former eating habits.
They were called in on six different days during 2 weeks after consuming a standardized meal. They introduced dysphasia by asking them to recall sad memories and to listen to sad music, assessing their mood to ensure the dysphoric mood has been achieved. The had a choice between a carbohydrate rich drink and a protein rich drink. They found that the carbohydrate drink has greater anti-depressive effect over protein drink.those who crave carbs self medicate their low mood by eating foods low in carbs. This experiment was a double blind trial were the research assistant and the participants had no idea the contents of the drink.
Physical health: I am about 60 pounds overweight and have recently started dieting and taking A.C.E. to help me lose some weight and get back on track. Due to the extra weight I’ve been having high blood pressure, which if not put in check can cause drastic problems for my physical health.

That was a lot for me. Now I make sure I eat three meals a day that stops me from eating unhealthy out of hunger. I make sure I have a protein shake daily. It’s loaded with vitamins and it also has a ton of protein which our body’s need as we grow older.

EAT TO DIE Cities and towns must come together to bring healthier eating options to predominantly ethnic and low-income neighborhoods. There are many communities today that are trying to make that change because they are tired of seeing the death poll in their communities to obesity; they are tired of watching children struggle with obesity, and seeing dialysis units pop up on every corner. In Harlem, New York, there are two community organizations the Harlem Abyssinian Triangle (EHAT) and the Abyssinian Development Corporation (ADC). These organizations worked for 10 years to bring a health supermarket to their community. Their community consisted of mostly Latinos and African Americans which only had access to a plethora of fast food and small bodegas with little health options.

For implement my personal wellness plan, I intend to start these activities from September 21, 2013 and evaluate my progress on October 21, 2013.
