The FilmPossible competition has launched, and I wanted to highlight one of the entries by a group of clients from the Family Support Services/BIRT Outpatient program. I co-facilitated a project-based group last summer with Val Lusted, SW. The group worked on a video about their lived experiences with acquired brain injury, and really focused on the idea that their brain injury was only a part of their lives; albeit an important part, they felt that it does not define them now, or forever.

This New Year, resolve to get the skinny on five fat-burning foods,
including whole grains, soluble fibres and plant compounds

So says leading Canadian dietitian Liz Pearson, emphasizing that excess abdominal fat significantly increases the risk of health problems – such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and cancer – as well as death. It may also speed up the aging process and the onset of dementia. Read the rest of this entry »
