Get Healthy and Fit!

Hello folks!

Are you happy?  Do you REALLY feel happy?  If you’ve not noticed, many people really do not smile, to not exude happiness, but are glum and gloomy. Well, it’s time to snap out of this!  It’s time to be HAPPY!  Just listen to what the late, Great Jack LaLanne–fitness expert–had to say about happiness and tell me if you don’t agree about how important this is!

Thomas C. Petrie is a graduate of Cornell Univ. with a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and a minor in Biochemistry.  Tom was Nutritionist with the Pritikin Longevity Center in Garden Grove, CA and Nutritionist for the Total Wellness Foundat’n in Albany, NY.  He has been a guest on local radio and TV.  (Yes, that link is a recent radio appearance of 11/17/14.)  He formerly worked with the Schachter Center for Complent’ry Medicine, in Suffern, New York (March, 2007 to September, 2014) and currently lives in Ballston Spa, NY, just about 25 miles north of Albany.

Tom completed Anti-Vitamin Baloney in July of 2011 (Llumina Press, 206 pages), and this is available at Amazon or at Kindle.  (It’s new title is: “The Mainstream Media’s Anti-Vitamin Agenda” and is available now from this writer.  His memoir was also recently completed and pre-orders are being taken now.

He is an avid distance runner, bicyclist and disc golfer (but no disc golf in the winter!). He can be e-mailed at: .

Thought for today:

“As every past generation has had to disenthrall itself from an inheritance of truisms and stereotypes, so in our time we must move on from reassuring repetition of stale phrases to a new, difficult, but essential confrontation with reality.

For the great enemy of truth is very often not the lie—deliberate, contrived and dishonest—but the myth: persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forbears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”
