Some general overall health tips that are recommended follows:

Avoid sugary breakfast foods and go for whole grains, protein, eggs.

1. Eat breakfast

Start your day with a healthy breakfast that includes lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

2. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables

Fruits and veggies add color, flavor and texture plus vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber to your plate. This is the best synthetic urine.

3. Watch portion sizes

Use half your plate for fruits and vegetables and the other half for grains and lean protein foods. Complete the meal with a serving of fat-free or low-fat milk or yogurt.

4. Be active

Regular physical activity has many health benefits. Start by doing what exercise you can. Children and teens should get 60 or more minutes of physical activity per day, and adults at least two hours and 30 minutes per week.

    Thanks for this week’s podcast Brian. I think that it is great that you have episodes like these interspersed with individual cases.
    You mentioned a little while ago that you may be doing a segment on Edmunder Kemper. I will be very interested in hearing this one as I find Kemper to be a particularly interesting case. I also find it surprising that I can find relatively little information on him as opposed to many other serial killers, so I am looking forward to seeing the resources you use for his segment.
    Once again, thans for all the effort that you put into these podcasts and I wish you well with your impending addition to the family.

      I definitely want to do an episode on Kemper as I find him fascinating. There really is a lack of information on him, and much of what’s out there conflicts with other sources.

      Margaret Cheney wrote two books on him. “The Co-ed Killer” is out of print and I’m not seeing used copies for less than $75. Ouch.

      I have her second book on Kemper, “Why? The Serial Killer in America”. Unfortunately, it spends about as much time talking about society’s problems as it does Kemper.

    “Why? The Serial Killer in America” arrived in my letterbox two days ago! I have only had a chance to read the first few pages and I’m hoping that the slip in naming ‘Richard Dahmer’ isn’t indicative of the rest of the book 🙂
    I would love to get my hands on her other book but it doesn’t seem likely at the prices being asked 🙂

    And looking forward to the second part of this ^_^

    Hi again Brian,

    I thought that you might be interested in some info that I found out regarding Margaret Cheney’s ‘two’ books.
    The book that we both have -‘Why’ – is actually ‘The Co-ed Killer’, albeit revised and retitled.
    I was actually considering purchasing The Co-ed Killer (yes, even at $75) after I had finished reading Why.A sentence in Chapter 3, where Ms Cheney states ‘that the eighties will see much worse’ (violence) led me to wonder exactly when it was written. Obviously not in 1992, as the publication date on my copy states 🙂
    Long story short,after a little research, I discovered that the two books are, in fact, one and the same – just updated a little.
    ‘The Co-ed Killer’ would seem to be of interest to collectors perhaps, but we do, in essence, already have it.
    I thought others might be interested to know this as it has saved me (at least) $75.
