No more food after dinner Dear Readers: Are you reading this column through bloodshot eyes? Having trouble focusing? Does the bottom of your mouth taste like the bottom of a birdcage? Did you make a fool of yourself last night? Or don't you remember? Well — anyway... Happ—eee New Year! Sorry about your headache. Are you up to reading on? If not, crawl back into the sack and meet me here at this same place tomorrow. For those of you who are still with me, I have a few suggestions that might make this new year a better one than last. First — if you are a smoker, quit. You'll feel better, look better, smell better, like yourself better and add years to your life. Your family will be thrilled and people won't move away from you at cocktail parties, business meetings and dinners. Have you been wanting to lose 20 pounds, or 30 or 40? Make this the year it happens. Only you are responsible for what goes into your mouth. If you have decided that diets don't work, you have come to terms with one of life's verities: DIETS DON'T WORK. Just look at the people who have tried every diet that comes down the pike. They're still fat. They've taken off a thousand pounds. Fifty off and fifty on — 30 off and 40 on. These people are better off to stay fat. Yo- yoing is bad for the heart. The only sensible way to lose weight and keep it off is to change your eating habits. It's called behavior modification. I learned several years ago that my Waterloo was going to the refrigerator AFTER Ann Landers NEWS AMERICA dinner. I sat down to the typewriter after finishing a good meal (with dessert) and in half an hour I was back in the kitchen looking for a sliver of that great chocolate pie. Of course, a sliver was never enough. In 20 minutes I was back again for another sliver, only this time it was more like a wedge. A half hour later I made a return trip to the kitchen and ran into the almonds. I remembered that nuts are nutritious — rich in protein. So I took a handful. One helping of almonds is never enough so, of course, I went back for a second. After dinner I put away almost as many calories as I did at the table. What saved me was 50 minutes of exercise every morning and the fact that I walked every place I could. But I knew I couldn't keep that up forever because when the years roll by the metabolism changes. It gets harder and harder—so I decided I had to cut out those nightly treks to the fridge. This one change in behavior has kept my weight stable for years. I can't say enough about the value of exercise. It's good for the heart, the blood pressure, digestion, complexion and skin tone, and it generates energy. Make a few resolutions about how you are going to treat the people around you. It's strange how often we treat those who are nearest and dearest the worst. We are courteous to strangers, casual friends and bosses, but we tend to be rude, short- tempered and inconsiderate to those we love best. How about making a resolution to be especially kind to wives, husbands, in-laws, children, sisters, brothers and parents? They will re-, act with surprise and pleasure, and they are bound to be enormously grateful. Good will, kindness and thoughtfulness are likea boomerang. They always come back to you. Cast your bread upon the waters and you will get back sandwiches. Trust me. Baby named A daughter, Haley Marie, was born Dec. 21 to former Salinans Mr. and Mrs. James (Patricia Eslinger) Geis, Garden City. Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Eslinger, 1842 Highland, and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Geis, 801 Highland. Egyptians made first leavened bread By The Journal's Wire Services Only in the last hundred years has making light, airy breads been a certainty, says Country Home magazine. Before that, bread making took years of experience and a generous measure of luck. Early man made bread by mixing crushed grains with water and spreading the mixture on stones to bake in the sun. Later, similar mixtures were baked in hot ashes. The ancient Egyptians are credited with making the first leavened bread. Perhaps a batch of dough was allowed to stand before it was baked. Wild yeast cells settled in and grew, producing tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide and making the dough rise. The bread was softer and more palatable, so it became the custom to let the dough stand for some time before baking. In 1863, an immigrant named Charles Fleischmann went back to Austria to search for a good-quality baker's yeast and returned to America with the yeast cells in a test tube in his vest pocket. In 1868, he began selling compressed yeast wrapped in tin foil.
