Are you on a low-carb diet?

THE SAD SIDE OF LOW CARB DIETS

Recently a report in the Archives of Internal Medicine stated that people who stuck to a low fat moderate carbohydrate diet for a year not only lost as much weight (30 pounds) as those on a low carb plan, but they also felt happier.  The reason: “Too much fat and protein may reduce your levels of mood boosting serotonin, leaving people feeling depressed,” says lead study author Grant D. Brinkworth, Ph.D.

The Skinny: 

If you are feeling down for no apparent reason you should monitor your carbohydrate intake and do not dip below 130 grams per day.  Ideally, weight loss expert Christine Avanti recommends a minimum of 200 grams per day and says that her clients continue to lose weight at that range.

Keep praying for pledge drive!

We are so grateful to everyone who has gotten involved in supporting KLOVE during our pledge drive. Wow! You are awesome! We are still quite a ways from 100% and only a few days from the end of pledge drive. It's all over Thursday night at 7 PST. Thank you so much for praying that God will continue to move on hearts and provide all that we need! We believe that God can work miracles! In fact, I've been reading the story of David and Goliath this week and I love that everyone thought David was crazy to take on this challenge. David's response? "The battle belongs to God!" So true! We have peace and joy in life when we remember that "the battle belongs to God." Hang on to that promise today with the challenges you face! We love you!

15-Year Old Dana Payne, Dies at Football Practice

15-year old HS player dies from 'normal football blow.' USA TODAY 

A 15-year old high school football player in Tennessee died Tuesday after being injured in practice, The Commercial Appeal of Memphis reported.

Dana Payne, a 5-11, 143-pound sophomore wide receiver for Millington Central High School, was pronounced dead at LeBonheur Children's Hospital.

Family friend Frank Sharp, who drove Payne to practice today and watched practice, told The Commercial Appeal that Payne suffered a "normal football blow."

"I had my back turned, but I heard the click," Sharp said. "He stopped breathing. They did CPR and they got him back in the ambulance. But about two minutes before they got to the hospital is when they lost him."

This is at least the third death involving a high school football player this season.

How sad...I guess I'd forgotten how dangerous football can be. I am keeping his family in my prayers.
