>> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY
WITH THE BEST OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS
AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES
IN TODAY'S ACTIVE WORLD WITH YOUR HOST--SHERYL BORDEN.
>> I'M SO GLAD YOU JOINED ME TODAY FOR "CREATIVE LIVING."
WE'RE GOING TO LEARN HOW TO OPTIMIZE OUR NUTRITION
TO GET THE MOST OUT OF WHAT WE EAT, AND WE'LL DEMONSTRATE
SOME EASY APPLIQUE TECHNIQUES TO USE ON DOLL FURNISHINGS.
ONE OF MY GUESTS TODAY IS LOUIX DOR DEMPRIEY,
AND HE'S A SPIRITUAL MASTER, AND HE'S GOING TO TALK
ABOUT OPTIMIZING NUTRITION.
HE SAYS IT'S BETTER TO CREATE A HEALTHY WAY OF EATING
AND TO SIMPLY LIVE THAT ALL THE TIME. HE BELIEVES
THAT MODERATION AND TEMPERANCE ARE MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL
THAN OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DIETS.
HE'S THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF LOUIX DOR DEMPRIEY FOUNDATION
IN LAGUNA HILLS, CALIFORNIA.
AND MY FIRST GUEST IS JANA BEUS, AND SHE'S
A DESIGNER WHO SAYS YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO PLAY WITH DOLLS.
SHE'S DESIGNED A LINE OF DOLL FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES
AND WILL SHOW HOW TO EMBELLISH THESE ITEMS WITH EASY
APPLIQUE TECHNIQUES.
I KNOW YOU'LL ENJOY SEEING THE FURNITURE SHE'S CREATED WITH
PVC PIPE, SOME PIPE INSULATION, AND A FEW OTHER ODDS AND ENDS.
HER BUSINESS IS DOLL STUFF BY JANA, AND SHE LIVES
IN OGDEN, UTAH.
JANA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US TODAY.
IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE YOU WERE HERE, AND AT THAT TIME
YOU WERE SHOWING DRAPERIES AND BEAUTIFUL TOPPERS,
AND I STILL USE A LOT OF YOUR PATTERNS, BY THE WAY.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO GOING FROM THAT TO DOLL FURNITURE
AND DOLL FURNITURE ACCESSORIES?
>> I LIVE CLOSE TO GRANDDAUGHTERS NOW AND FOUND OUT
THAT THEY NEED THEM.
>> THEY NEED THEM.
AND THEIR DOLLS NEED THEM, TOO, DON'T THEY?
>> YES, THEY DO.
>> WELL, I THINK THAT'S AN INTERESTING STORY, AND WE'LL
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THAT LATER, BUT I DO WANT US TO GO AHEAD
AND SHOW EVERYTHING THAT YOU BROUGHT. WE HAVE A 3-TIER
BUNK BED. WHY 3-TIERED?
>> WELL, THEY HAVE MORE THAN ONE DOLL.
>> OH, I SEE. SO, THEY EACH NEED THEIR OWN BED. YOU'VE DONE LOTS
OF APPLIQUE, AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT WE'RE GOING TO SHOW TODAY
IS HOW TO EMBELLISH A LOT OF THE STANDARD ACCESSORIES.
>> AND EASILY.
>> AND EASILY. I LIKE THAT.
IN FACT, YOU SAID A LOT OF TIMES WHEN YOU MAKE SOMETHING, YOU GO
BACK AND REDO IT AND EITHER MAKE IT MORE SIMPLE
OR MORE ECONOMICAL.
>> OH, YES.
>> WELL, THAT-THAT'S GREAT.
AND FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T SEW, THERE'S--THEY CAN STILL
PARTICIPATE.
>> YES.
>> LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS LITTLE BED, ONE-LEVEL BED,
AND YOU--WHAT IS THIS LITTLE COVERLET MADE FROM?
>> IT'S JUST A KITCHEN TOWEL, AND IT'S GOT THE APPLIQUE
IRONED ON.
>> UH-HUH. AND YOU'VE GOT SEVERAL PRODUCTS YOU'LL TALK
TO US ABOUT WHAT WORKS WITH VARIOUS TYPES OF FABRICS.
>> YES.
>> LITTLE PILLOW SHAMS.
LOTS OF DECORATIVE THINGS THAT WE CAN MAKE WITH JUST
SMALL, LITTLE PIECES OF FABRIC.
>> YES.
>> OKAY, WHAT ABOUT THIS?
>> HERE AGAIN, IT'S THE APPLIQUE THAT WE'RE SHOWING. WE'RE JUST
USING A PIECE OF THAT YARDAGE.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND THE FABRIC IS ACTUALLY A STRIPE, BUT WE'VE CUT IT
TO BE JUST ONE LONG DOT.
>> I SEE. AND, AGAIN, THIS IS A LITTLE COVERLET, LITTLE BLANKET
TYPE THING.
>> IT'S JUST A PILLOW SHAM.
>> BUT FOR THE BED.
>> OH, DEFINITELY.
IT'S THEIR BEDSPREAD.
>> UH-HUH. OH, AND THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. THE SAME FABRIC,
BUT DONE VERY DIFFERENT.
>> YES. IT JUST HAS THE FABRIC, SO IF YOU'RE SEWING IT,
YOU CAN MAKE THIS SQUARE, AND THEN YOU CAN MAKE ANY SIZE
YOU WANT, ADD ANYTHING YOU WANT TO IT.
BUT IT'S ALL SIMPLE STEPS.
>> UH-HUH. VERY PRETTY COLORS.
I LIKE THE BRIGHT COLORS.
OKAY, LET'S GO TO THIS BED.
I LIKE THAT HEADBOARD.
>> 2 PLACEMATS.
>> EITHER MAKE THEM OR BUY THEM, UH-HUH.
>> YEAH, AND WE'VE GOT THE PILLOW SHAM AGAIN, WE'VE GOT
SOME CUTE LITTLE BLANKETS AND APPLIQUE, AND EVEN APPLIQUE
ON THE OTHER SIDE IF YOU JUST DO IT THAT WAY.
>> THIS WOULD ENTERTAIN YOUNG LADIES FOR A LONG TIME,
CHANGING OUT ALL THIS BEDDING.
>> THEY LOVE TO HAVE EXTRA BEDDING AND MAKE THEM DIFFERENT
EVERY TIME. IN FACT, THE BUNK BED'S A REALLY GOOD ONE
FOR THAT.
>> WELL, I BET IT WOULD BE.
OKAY, WELL, WE NEED A LITTLE INSTRUCTION IN HOW TO DO
APPLIQUE. SOME PEOPLE MAY BE OLD HANDS AT IT, BUT IN CASE
THEY HAVEN'T DONE IT, THEN LET'S SHOW THEM WHAT WE NEED TO DO.
>> THIS IS YOUR SIMPLE WAY, SHERYL.
>> UH-HUH.
>> IT'S NOT YOUR HEAVY MACHINE APPLIQUE.
WE ARE IRONING ON A FUSIBLE WEB TO THE BACK OF THE FABRIC FIRST.
WE CUT IT OUT. WE CUT OUT STRAIGHT. WE COULD CUT IT
WITH PINKING SHEARS.
WE CAN CUT IT OUT--WE CAN PUT A FLEECE BACKING ON,
BECAUSE THE ONE PILLOW-- >> ...DIMENSION, UH-HUH.
>> SO IT CAN BE DIMENSIONAL.
AND IF IT'S GONNA SHOW UP FROM THE OTHER SIDE, WE WANT
TO PUT IT ON BOTH SIDES.
>> FACE IT, UH-HUH.
>> WE CAN TOP-STITCH IT, WE CAN PUT A MUSLIN ON THE OUTSIDE
AND FRAY IT.
THAT'S EVERYTHING THAT'S DONE.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND USUALLY JUST, YOU KNOW, THE PLAIN AND MAYBE THE FLEECE.
>> AND YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE IRON-ON. I GUESS ARE THERE
LOTS OF DIFFERENT IRON-ON INTERFACINGS AVAILABLE?
>> THERE ARE. AND THEY'RE ALL WORKABLE. I DO LIKE SOME
OF THE HEAVIER...
>> OH.
>> ...BECAUSE I DEFINITELY WANT IT TO GRAB INTO IT.
IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO THE REVERSIBLE ONE ON BOTH
SIDES, YOU MIGHT WANT SOME LIGHTER.
>> OH, WELL, THAT'S SOMETHING, YEAH, TO KEEP IN MIND.
THIS IS VERY DIMENSIONAL.
>> YES, AND IT'S JUST AN IRON-- YOU CAN GET THE BACKING...
>> MM-HMM.
>> ...EITHER FUSED WITH THE WEBBING OR JUST GET YOU
A NICE FLANNEL-TYPE BACKING.
>> MM-HMM. AND I WAS TELLING YOU--AND OTHER PEOPLE MAY RELATE
TO THIS, TOO--I DON'T--A LOT OF TIMES DON'T GO IN TO SEE WHAT'S
NEW. I TEND TO USE THE SAME TYPES OF INTERFACING, BACKINGS
THAT I'VE ALWAYS USED.
SO, WE NEED TO BE A LITTLE ADVENTUROUS AND KIND OF TRY SOME
OF THE NEW ONES.
>> THEY'VE GOT SOME NEW STUFF THAT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY.
>> BEAUTIFULLY. GREAT. OKAY.
HERE WE GO. THIS IS THE SAME FABRIC AS THE APPLIQUE
ON THE OTHER BED.
>> I HAVE A CHAIR AND SOME OTHER THINGS MADE FROM THIS FABRIC,
AND THIS LITTLE SCRAP YOU THINK ISN'T VERY GOOD, BUT IT WORKS
GREAT FOR THE SAMPLE.
>> JUST TO MAKE THE-THE PETALS.
>> I--AND IF YOU DON'T WANT THE WRITING ON IT,
THE BACKSIDE'S PLAIN.
>> HUH.
>> ALTHOUGH I'VE ALREADY PUT THE GLUE ON IT.
>> RIGHT. IT'S LIKE A GOOD WAY TO USE LOTS OF LITTLE SCRAPS
THAT WE ALL HAVE.
>> ABSOLUTELY. IT'S A GOOD WAY FOR THE GIRLS TO PARTICIPATE...
>> OH, I LIKE THIS.
>> ...AND HAVE THEM PICK STUFF.
>> ANOTHER LITTLE KITCHEN TOWEL, I ASSUME.
>> IT IS, AND THIS ONE, I'VE TAKE THESE STARS
AND CUT OUT ONE, BUT I'VE DONE THE FUSIBLE ONE FROM
THE BACKSIDE TO MAKE IT LOOK A LITTLE BIT BIGGER
AND DIMENSIONAL.
>> CUTE. LOTS OF CUTE FABRICS AVAILABLE. ARE THERE CERTAIN
FABRICS THAT WE SHOULD USE OR SHOULDN'T USE?
>> YOU KNOW, MOST OF THESE ARE A COTTON, JUST BECAUSE
THERE ARE SO MANY CUTE ONES IN THE QUILTING-TYPE AREA,
AND I LOVE TO TAKE A FABRIC AND CUT IT APART AND USE IT
IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
>> JUST LIKE SCRAPBOOKING OR CARD-MAKING, ISN'T IT?
>> SO, AT FIRST I WAS GONNA USE IT JUST AS A BAND
AND STITCH IT ON.
>> UH-HUH.
>> BUT THEN I DECIDED I WOULD CUT SOME OUT AND MAKE THE CIRCLE
OF FRIENDS. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE, ON THE BOTTOM...
>> THEY WERE KIND OF CUT OFF.
>> THEY WERE CUT OFF, SO WE JUST USED THE HEADS.
SO WHEN YOU PUT IT ON, YOU FLIP IT BACK
AND SEE THE LITTLE HEADS.
>> GREAT IDEA.
MM. THIS IS PRETTY.
I LOVE THE WAY YOU'RE USING ALL THESE TOWELS.
>> ISN'T THAT FUN?
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE THEM ON THE BEDS.
I MEAN, YOU CAN USE THEM, TOO.
FOR OTHER THINGS.
>> YEAH, THAT'S TRUE.
I FORGET ABOUT THAT.
>> SOME CUTE LITTLE FLOWERS, AND BY PUTTING ONE ON TOP
OF THE OTHER, YOU'VE MADE IT DIMENSIONAL.
>> AND YOU CUT OUT SOME INDIVIDUAL FLOWERS DOWN HERE.
>> I DID. AND THEY'VE GOT THE FUSIBLE ON THEM,
AND THERE'S ONE ROW OF STITCHES.
THAT'S ALL YOU DO.
>> THAT'S ALL? OKAY.
I LOVE TO LOOK AT THESE DIFFERENT FABRICS.
>> THE FABRICS ARE SO CUTE OUT THERE. SO NOW IF YOU'VE GOT
A PET LOVER, WE CAN DO THE CATS.
A LITTLE PRAIRIE POINTS ON THERE. BUT VERY SIMPLE.
AGAIN, IT'S A TOWEL, AND IT'S FUSED ON. VERY LITTLE--
VERY LITTLE STITCHES.
>> VERY LITTLE SEWING, UH-HUH.
OH, SOME MONKEYS?
>> MONKEYS. MONKEY BUSINESS HERE. JUST A TOUCH.
WE DON'T WANT A...
>> AND, AGAIN, THAT'S A BAND.
YOU DIDN'T CUT THOSE OUT.
>> YEAH, JUST A BAND.
>> AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, YOU USE EVERY LITTLE PIECE
OF FABRIC YOU'VE GOT AVAILABLE, DON'T YOU?
>> AND I MAKE THIS INTO A TRIM.
AND THE COST OF A TRIM THAT YOU PURCHASE CAN BE EXPENSIVE.
>> IT CAN BE.
>> WHEN IT'S JUST A PIECE OF THE FABRIC--INEXPENSIVE.
AND YOU CAN USE IT LOTS OF DIFFERENT WAYS.
>> WE'VE SHOWED LOTS OF THINGS TO DO WITH BEDS, BUT IT'S TIME
TO GO TO THE DINETTE. [LAUGHS] AND WE HAVE THIS LITTLE DINETTE
SET, WHICH IS ALSO MADE WITH THE PVC PIPE JUST LIKE THE BEDS
ARE DONE. WHAT DID YOU WANT TO SHOW US ABOUT THIS?
THESE LOOK LIKE PLACEMATS TO ME.
>> THEY ARE. THEY'RE PLACEMATS.
THEY--IN FACT, THE TIES ARE ACTUALLY GLUED ON.
>> WOW.
>> AND HERE--THIS ONE ACTUALLY HAS ELASTIC SO IT SLIPS RIGHT
OUT, BUT THERE IS ANOTHER ONE.
WE'LL JUST SHOW THE BACK OF THIS ONE. IT JUST FLIPS DOWN.
>> OH, THAT WAS THE FABRIC.
>> YEAH. AND WHEN YOU GET A FABRIC SOMETIMES THAT'S MORE
EXPENSIVE, YOU KIND OF CRY WHEN YOU SEE THE CUT-OFF ONES.
>> UH-HUH.
>> NO. USE THEM.
>> JUST USE IT. PUT IT ON AN EDGE. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU MEANT
FOR IT TO BE GOING OFF THAT EDGE.
>> THEY LOOK CUTE ON A BLANKET.
YOU CAN JUST USE HALF AND IT WORKS OUT GREAT.
>> WELL, AND THIS IS ANOTHER PIECE THAT YOU DID AN APPLIQUE
ON. IT'S A LITTLE APRON, MM-HMM.
THEY CAN PLAY DINETTE.
>> SO IT GIVES SOME DETAILS THAT ARE INEXPENSIVE.
>> WELL, WE'VE SORT OF SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST.
YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER IS KYLIE DAVIS. KYLIE, COME ON IN.
SHE IS--HOW OLD ARE YOU, KYLIE?
>> I'M 9.
>> YOU'RE 9 YEARS OLD, AND HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN ALL THIS
PROJECT WITH YOUR GRANDMOTHER?
>> FINDING DOLLS AND SEEING WHAT THEY NEED TO DO.
>> YEAH, YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO JUST LAY AROUND AND BE BORED,
DO YOU?
>> NO.
>> THAT'S A GOOD POINT. WELL, THIS IS SOMETHING YOU MADE
AND THOUGHT ABOUT THE FABRIC AND EVERYTHING. TELL US
ABOUT YOUR DESIGN.
>> WELL, I JUST KIND OF DID IT, LIKE, ON WHAT I LIKED. LIKE,
I LIKE ALL THE POLKA DOTS AND THESE ARE JUST, LIKE,
JUST STUFF AND YOU-YOU-- >> I BET YOU LIKE BRIGHT COLORS,
AM I RIGHT?
>> YES.
>> ME TOO. I LIKE BRIGHT COLORS.
BUT NOW--OH, YOU ADDED MONKEYS TO IT. I SEE.
>> YES, IT'S JUST THIS FABRIC RIGHT HERE. THIS ONE IS THIS ONE
RIGHT HERE. IT'S JUST--THIS-- >> MM-HMM.
>> IT'S JUST, LIKE, THE POP.
LIKE A FAMILY OF MONKEYS, AND THEN THERE'S...
>> THIS LOOKS LIKE THE MOTHER, IS THAT RIGHT?
>> UH-HUH. YOU JUST CUT IT OUT, AND THEN--
>> OH, YOU DIDN'T LIKE THIS LITTLE PLAIN TOPKNOT, DID YOU?
>> NO. SO YOU ADD A-- I CUT IT OUT RIGHT HERE
AND PUT IT ON THE TOP.
>> I LIKE THAT BETTER, TOO.
I LIKE THE PINK ADDED TO IT.
SO, DO YOU LIKE CUTTING THINGS OUT?
>> UM, SORT OF.
>> SEE, I LIKE THE CUTTING PART.
I ALWAYS PLAYED WITH PAPER DOLLS, BUT I JUST LIKE
TO CUT THEM OUT. I NEVER LIKED TO PLAY WITH THE DOLLS. SO,
YOU'RE MAKING THINGS--OH, LET'S SHOW THEM ABOUT YOUR PILLOW.
>> MY PILLOW, IT'S JUST THE STRIPES THAT KIND OF
MATCHES, LIKE, RIGHT HERE AND THE POLKA DOTS JUST
MATCH EVERYTHING.
>> SO, WHEN THIS IS MADE OUT ONTO YOUR DOLL'S BED,
SHE'S EVEN GOT A LITTLE--OH.
>> A SURPRISE MONKEY.
>> A SURPRISE MONKEY.
I HADN'T SEEN THAT YET. HA HA.
DO YOU KIND OF PUT A SURPRISE ON EVERYTHING YOU DO?
>> I LIKE TO.
>> I THINK THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.
WELL, YOU'RE VERY CLEVER.
ARE YOU GOING TO CONTINUE DOING THIS FOR YEARS?
>> I DON'T KNOW YET.
>> I DON'T KNOW YET. WELL, I THINK YOU'RE JUST AMAZING,
AND YOU'VE INSPIRED YOUR GRANDMOTHER TO DO SOMETHING
SHE NEVER WOULD HAVE TRIED.
WELL, THANK YOU BOTH FOR BEING WITH US TODAY.
I REALLY HAVE ENJOYED SEEING ALL OF THESE BEAUTIFUL SAMPLES.
YOU'RE BOTH VERY TALENTED.
>> THANKS.
>> LOUIX, IT'S SO NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE ON THE SHOW.
I'VE ENJOYED TALKING TO YOU BEFORE WE SAT DOWN HERE,
AND YOU CERTAINLY HAVE HAD AN INTERESTING LIFE AND CONTINUE
TO HAVE AN INTERESTING LIFE.
I WAS NOT AWARE OF WHAT A SPIRITUAL MASTER WAS
AND WHAT YOUR JOB INVOLVED, BUT I DID WANT TO TALK TO YOU
ABOUT NUTRITION, BECAUSE THAT SURPRISED ME THAT THAT WAS
AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE LIFE YOU LIVE AND THE WORKSHOPS
AND THINGS THAT YOU DO.
WE ALL KNOW FAD DIETS AREN'T GOOD FOR US, BUT HOW
DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE WAY PEOPLE SHOULD EAT, MODERATION,
TEMPERANCE? HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?
>> WELL, PERSONALLY FOR MYSELF AND HOW I TEACH, I'M--I LIKE
TO CREATE, HELP PEOPLE CREATE FIRST OF ALL SOMETHING THAT IS
ATTAINABLE AND DOABLE.
SO IN THAT REGARD, I TEND TO-- I'LL BRING FORTH A BODY
OF KNOWLEDGE, A BODY OF TEACHING ON ANY GIVEN SUBJECT,
BUT I ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE IT SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE
CAN LATCH ON TO AND FIND SUCCESS IN, SO IN THAT REGARD,
I TEND TO TELL PEOPLE THAT DON'T NECESSARILY PUSH YOURSELF
TO BE FANATIC OR SO METICULOUS ABOUT IT THAT-THAT YOU
SET YOURSELF UP TO FAIL.
>> UH-HUH.
>> SO I LIKE TO CREATE SOMETHING YOU CAN WORK WITH THAT'S DOABLE,
AND IN TERMS OF EATING, I MEAN, SO MANY DIRECTIONS
WE CAN GO WITH IT.
>> SO, WHEN PEOPLE COME TO A WORKSHOP--I LIKE THE FACT
THAT YOU SAY YOU DO IT IN-- SLOWLY. THEY DON'T HAVE TO GO
HOME AND THROW OUT ALL THE SUGAR AND ALL THE FLOUR AND EVERYTHING
THAT'S WHITE, BUT THAT IS AN ISSUE THAT YOU TALK ABOUT.
>> YEAH. I GIVE THEM GOALS TO WORK TOWARD,
LIKE FOR INSTANCE--FOR INSTANCE, LIKE ONE OF THE FOODS THAT--
I GIVE PEOPLE CATEGORIES, AND I SAY, "HERE ARE CATEGORIES
THAT YOU SHOULD STRIVE TO--" I USE WORDS LIKE "STRIVE TO"
AND "BEGIN TO DEVELOP TO," "LEAN AWAY FROM,"
"MOVE AWAY FROM."
>> "BE AWARE OF."
>> YEAH, LIKE TO DECREASE THE USE OF WHAT NUTRITIONISTS
OFTEN CALL "WHITE DEATH"-- WHITE SUGAR...
>> I HAD NOT HEARD IT CALLED THAT. THAT'S SCARY.
>> WHITE SUGAR, WHITE FLOUR, WHITE RICE, BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS
IS IF YOU--ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH KINESIOLOGY, MUSCLE TESTING?
>> YES, UH-HUH.
>> IF YOU PUT, LIKE, A PACKET OF WHITE SUGAR ON YOUR CHEST
AND THEN YOU GO TO MUSCLE TEST, YOUR ENTIRE BODY GOES WEAK.
YOU CAN'T GET A POSITIVE RESPONSE IN ANY MUSCLE
IN YOUR WHOLE BODY.
>> I DIDN'T KNOW THAT.
>> IT'S VERY, VERY TOXIC TO THE BODY, SO I TELL PEOPLE
START TO STEER AWAY FROM REFINED SUGAR AND GO INTO NATURAL
SWEETENERS, AND THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM THAT HAVE MANY
DIFFERENT FLAVORS, AND THEY'RE NOT ANY MORE EXPENSIVE,
SO PEOPLE CAN MAKE CHANGES AND THEY CAN MAKE THEM GRADUALLY
WITHOUT FEELING THEY HAVE TO BE FANATIC--FANATICAL ABOUT IT.
>> THAT'S THE WHITE DEATH, THE ITEMS THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT.
WHAT ABOUT JUST JUNK FOODS, PROCESSED FOODS?
>> JUNK FOODS, TOO.
>> THAT'S HARD TO GIVE UP.
>> WELL, AGAIN, THAT'S WHY I TELL PEOPLE START REDUCING,
AND I GIVE PEOPLE GENERAL GUIDELINES ABOUT NUTRITION THAT
ARE NOT ABOUT SPECIFIC FOODS, TOO, LIKE FOR INSTANCE,
IT'S MUCH HEALTHIER TO EAT SMALLER AND SMALLER PORTIONS
MORE TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
IT'S HEALTHIER TO HAVE A LITTLE SNACK OF SOMETHING THAN TO HAVE
3 GIANT MEALS. AND WE GREW UP-- MY GENERATION, YOUR GENERATION,
EAT 3 HUGE MEALS. GET YOUR BODY FUEL. STOCK UP IN THE MORNING.
IT'S THE WORST THING FOR YOUR BODY. IT'S BEST FOR WHEN YOU
FEEL A LITTLE BIT OF HUNGER, YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF FOOD
AND YOU PROCESS IT. BECAUSE IF YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR STOMACH,
YOUR STOMACH IS THIS SAC THAT EXPANDS, AND WHEN
YOU FILL IT TO CAPACITY AND EXPAND IT, IT HAS ELASTICITY,
AND IF YOU KEEP PUSHING IT AND PUSHING IT, IT WILL STAY
LARGER, AND THEN IT WILL TAKE MORE FOOD TO FEEL FULL.
>> I SEE.
>> AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU'LL FILL IT TO CAPACITY
AND YOU KEEP INCREASING IT AND THAT MAKES YOU START TO GROW.
>> I SEE.
>> SO, THAT'S ONE OF THE FUNDAMENTALS
OF GOOD NUTRITION IS REDUCING THE AMOUNT YOU EAT.
>> HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THE BODY, THE STOMACH,
TO START SHRINKING IF YOU'RE CUTTING BACK ON EATING
THE 3 BIG MEALS?
>> OH, IT'S IMMEDIATE.
>> IS IT, REALLY?
>> IT'S IMMEDIATE, YEAH.
LIKE, WITHIN A DAY OR 2 YOU'D SEE A DIFFERENCE.
LET'S SAY CONSERVATIVELY A WEEK, YOU WOULD START TO REALLY FEEL
A DIFFERENCE, BUT IF YOU'RE VERY SENSITIVE TO FOODS
AND YOU'RE REALLY IN TUNE WITH YOUR BODY, YOU'D FEEL IT
WITHIN A COUPLE DAYS.
>> I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT.
>> YEAH. LIKE, FOR INSTANCE, I DO A LOT OF FASTING,
AND I TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO FAST AS WELL, AND I OFTEN--
THERE ARE ONE-DAY FASTS AND 3-DAY FASTS, AND A GOOD--
A STRONG FAST IS ABOUT 7 TO 10 DAYS, WHERE--SOME PEOPLE
DO REALLY, REALLY LONG ONES.
LIKE, I'VE DONE 21'S AND LAST YEAR--2 YEARS AGO,
I DID MY FIRST 40-DAY FAST WITHOUT FOOD, BUT ON A 7-
TO 10-DAY FAST, WHEN YOU HAVE THAT FIRST MEAL, YOU CAN ONLY
EAT A LITTLE HANDFUL OF FOOD.
I MEAN, YOU PHYSICALLY CAN'T GET IT IN BECAUSE YOUR STOMACH
HAS SHRUNK AND YOUR TA-- YOUR PALATE HAS CHANGED AND YOUR
TASTE FOR FOOD HAS CHANGED, AND SO THAT'S A HUGE--
AN EGREGIOUS EXAMPLE, BUT THE PRINCIPLE'S THE SAME.
WHEN YOU START EATING LESS, YOUR STOMACH WILL NATURALLY
SHRINK, SO THAT'S ONE FUNDAMENTAL, A CORE PRINCIPLE
OF OPTIMAL NUTRITION.
ANOTHER ONE IS NOT EATING LATE AT NIGHT. I OFTEN TELL
PEOPLE, "DON'T HAVE A MAJOR MEAL AFTER 6 OR 7 IF YOU CAN HELP
IT." BUT, AGAIN, BACK TO THE "DON'T BE FANATICAL,"
IF YOUR FRIEND, YOUR COUSIN, YOUR SISTER'S IN TOWN AND YOU'RE
GOING OUT TO A BIG RESTAURANT, SAY, "OH, I CAN'T EAT AFTER 6.
WE'RE NOT GOING OUT. TELL ALL THE KIDS SORRY I CAN'T SEE
THEM." YOU GO OUT AND YOU ENJOY YOURSELF AND DON'T FEEL GUILTY
ABOUT IT. BUT AS A WAY OF LIFE, STRIVE TO HAVE YOUR LAST MEAL
BY LATE AFTERNOON, AND THEN JUST HAVE SOMETHING LIGHT
IN THE EVENING LIKE FRUITS OR SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN DIGEST.
FRUIT DIGESTS IN UNDER AN HOUR.
>> OH, UH-HUH.
>> THINGS LIKE THAT. AND IN THE MORNING, I ALWAYS HAVE FRUIT
IN THE MORNING--WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THIS MORNING
HERE IN NEW MEXICO, WANT TO HAVE A COUNTRY BREAKFAST--
BUT I HAVE FRUIT IN THE MORNING ALMOST EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE.
YOUR BODY--YOU'VE SLEPT FOR 6 TO 8 HOURS, SO YOUR BODY'S
DEHYDRATED, AND FRUIT IS 90 TO 100% WATER, SO YOU HYDRATE
YOUR BODY, AND YOU GET ALL YOUR VITAMINS AND MINERALS.
YOUR MORNING IS ALSO YOUR ELIMINATION PERIOD,
WHEN YOUR BODY FLUSHES OUT, SO YOU'RE FLUSHING YOUR BODY
WITH WATER. YOU'RE GETTING STRUCTURED WATER. YOU'RE GETTING
VITAMINS, MINERALS, HYDRATION, AND YOU'RE ASSISTING
THE ELIMINATION, THE CLEANING OUT OF YOUR BODY.
YOU FEEL AMAZING. A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, "WELL, I DON'T FEEL
SOURCED IF I DON'T HAVE A BIG HEAVY BREAKFAST,"
BUT THEN WHAT DO ALMOST EVERY-- WHAT DOES ALMOST EVERYONE HAVE
AFTER A BIG HEAVY BREAKFAST?
SEVERAL CUPS OF COFFEE.
>> UH-HUH.
>> BECAUSE THE BIG HEAVY BREAKFAST ACTUALLY SHUTS
YOU DOWN AND MAKES YOU TIRED.
>> I SEE. SO WE'RE DEFEATING THE PURPOSE OF STARTING THE DAY
WITH A GOOD BREAKFAST.
>> WELL, GOOD IS RELATIVE.
>> RIGHT.
>> A BOWL FULL OF FRUIT IS GREAT, AND THEN IF YOU'VE--
AND, AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO TEMPER IT TO WHAT YOUR TASTES
AND CUSTOMS AND PREFERENCES ARE.
THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE SAY, "WELL, I NEED A GOOD BREAKFAST,"
SO I'LL TELL THEM, "OKAY, THEN GET UP IN THE MORNING
AND HAVE YOUR FRUIT AND THEN AN HOUR LATER, THEN HAVE YOUR
EGGS AND TOAST AND PANCAKES, WAFFLES, WHATEVER YOU WANT,
BUT GIVE YOUR BODY THE GIFT OF GETTING REHYDRATED
AND FLUSHING OUT, AND YOU'LL FEEL SO MUCH BETTER."
>> MM-HMM. AND I'M CURIOUS ABOUT YOU MENTIONED THE FASTING.
IS THAT SIMPLY TO GET RID OF TOXINS AND POISONS
IN THE BODY? IS THAT THE PURPOSE OF FASTING?
>> THERE ARE MANY, MANY PURPOSES. THAT IS ONE OF
THE PRIMARIES. THERE ARE CERTAIN TOXINS THAT GET HELD OR TRAPPED
IN THE BODY THAT CANNOT BE REMOVED BY ANY OTHER MEANS
BUT FASTING. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THAT.
>> NO.
>> BUT FASTING ALSO IS REALLY GOOD--AND NOT NECESSARILY
ON A LARGE BASIS, LIKE A 7- TO 10-DAY--BUT I HAVE A PRACTICE
AND A PRINCIPLE I SHARE WITH PEOPLE ABOUT TAKING ONE DAY
A WEEK JUST TO FAST, BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IS IT HELPS YOU
REGULATE YOUR APPETITE.
BECAUSE REMEMBER HOW I TALKED ABOUT WHEN YOU EAT MORE,
YOUR STOMACH EXPANDS?
BUT ALSO PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY, WHEN YOU EAT
MORE, YOU WANT MORE, AND THIS ADDICTION-TYPE BEHAVIOR STARTS
GROWING. AND WHEN YOU FAST EVERY NOW AND THEN, EVEN IF
IT'S ONE DAY, YOUR--YOU KEEP YOUR PALATE AND YOUR APPETITE
IN CHECK, AND YOU DON'T-- IT BREAKS THAT TENDENCY
TO KEEP BUILDING, BUILDING, BUILDING, BUILDING, AND THAT
ADDICTION TO FOOD, KEEPS IT IN CHECK, AND IT HELPS OFFSET
THAT, SO IT'S VERY HEALTHY IN THAT WAY AS WELL.
>> WELL, THAT MAKES SENSE.
BUT IF YOU'VE NEVER FASTED BEFORE, I KNOW WHEN I MISS
A MEAL OR 2, I'M REALLY HUNGRY.
>> YEAH.
>> AND I JUST THINK, "OH, I'VE GOT TO EAT."
I'LL PASS THAT ON.
>> I REMEMBER WHEN I DID MY 40-DAY FAST, I LIVE ON
THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE COUNTRY FROM MY PARENTS, AND WE MET--
THEY'RE IN BOSTON, I'M IN CALIFORNIA--AND WE MET
DOWN IN FLORIDA, AND AT THAT TIME, I HADN'T EATEN FOR 18
DAYS, AND MY MOM AND DAD TOOK ME OUT TO THIS GORGEOUS ITALIAN
RESTAURANT WHERE THEY SERVE FOOD ON THESE HUGE PLATTERS,
JUST MOUNTAINS OF FOOD, AND MY DAD SAID, "I FEEL SO BAD
I'M EATING IN FRONT OF YOU," AND HE SAYS, "HOW LONG HAVE YOU
NOT EATEN?" AND I SAID, "18 DAYS," AND HE SAID, "I CAN'T GO
18 MINUTES WITHOUT EATING," AND THAT'S WHAT MOST PEOPLE SAY
TO ME.
>> I AGREE WITH HIM.
>> BUT AGAIN, WHEN YOU SAID PEOPLE WHO'VE NEVER FASTED,
ONCE AGAIN, I WOULD TEMPER THAT.
IF I GAVE SOMEONE A FAST, I WOULD LOOK AT THEIR DIET,
I WOULD LOOK AT THEIR NUTRITION, LOOK AT THEIR LIFE HABITS
AND TAILOR IT TO WHAT WORKS FOR THEM. LIKE I KNOW ONE--
I HAVE ONE FRIEND WHO'S VERY, VERY--I'LL USE THE WORD ADDICTED
TO FOOD AND EATS A LOT OF IT, AND THIS INDIVIDUAL SAID,
"THERE'S NO WAY I COULD FAST.
I JUST--I'M NOT GOING TO, AND IF YOU TELL ME, THEN I'M
NOT GOING TO TALK TO YOU."
I SAID, "THEN MAKE AN EFFORT IN THAT DIRECTION. LET'S SAY
YOUR FAST COULD BE "I'LL ONLY EAT FRUITS AND FRUIT JUICES
FOR A DAY."" BECAUSE THEN YOU'RE STILL HELPING YOUR BODY IN SOME
WAY RATHER THAN NO FOOD OR JUST WATER, SO THERE'S DIFFERENT
TYPES OF FASTS.
>> SO, WHEN YOU FAST, YOU CAN HAVE WATER?
>> YEAH, YOU--WELL, THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF FASTS.
SOME PEOPLE HAVE WATER ONLY.
SOME PEOPLE DO WHAT'S CALLED A MASTER CLEANSE, WHICH IS
LEMON JUICE AND A LITTLE MAPLE SYRUP AND CAYENNE PEPPER
AND A GLASS OF WATER.
SOME PEOPLE JUST DRINK THAT, BECAUSE THEN YOU STILL HAVE
A GLUCOSE STREAM GOING INTO YOUR BODY, AND THEY DON'T GET--
YOUR SUGAR LEVELS GET MAINTAINED. AND THEN YOU HAVE
PEOPLE WHO HAVE HYPO- OR HYPERGLYCEMIA, SO THEY
HAVE TO--YOU HAVE TO MODERATE FASTS FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
>> YEAH. I THOUGHT FAST WAS FAST. I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT.
>> A LOT OF PEOPLE DO.
THEY THINK IT MEANS NO FOOD, BUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES
YOU CAN DO. AND SOME PEOPLE WILL SAY, "OH, I'LL JUST GIVE UP MEAT
OR I'LL GIVE UP--I'LL JUST DO FRUIT AND VEGETABLES,"
BECAUSE THAT'S VERY LIGHT FOOD, AND THEN THEY'LL FEEL A HUGE
DIFFERENCE IN THEIR BODY.
>> I SEE. WELL, YOU MENTIONED FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. ARE YOU
A PROPONENT OF VEGANS EATING JUST THE--ELIMINATING MEAT?
>> I DO TEACH VEGAN LIVING AND VEGANISM, AND MY ASHRAMS,
MY CENTERS AROUND THE WORLD, ARE ALL COMPLETELY VEGAN.
I'M NOT 100% RIGHT NOW IN MY LIFE. I WENT THROUGH SOME
CHANGES IN DIFFERENT WAYS-- I DON'T WANT TO GET INTO
THE STORY OF IT ALL, BUT I'M MOSTLY VEGAN AND I'M
ALSO--I EAT AT LEAST--I TEACH RAW LIVING, TOO, SO ABOUT 70
TO 80% OF MY FOOD IS FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, AND AT LEAST 50%
OF WHAT I EAT IS RAW, BECAUSE THE RAW FOOD, YOU GET
YOUR STRUCTURED WATER, YOU GET YOUR LIVE ENZYMES AND YOUR
NUTRIENTS IN THEIR PUREST FORM, AND WHEN YOU EAT LIVE RAW FOOD
AND MOSTLY ORGANIC, YOU NEED WAY LESS FOOD AND YOU HAVE
WAY MORE ENERGY AND YOU NEED WAY LESS SLEEP, SO IT'S REALLY
SYNERGIZING-- >> THAT'S SO INTERESTING.
>> IT'S VERY, VERY FASCINATING.
IT'S AMAZING HOW MUCH LESS SLEEP YOU NEED AND HOW MUCH LESS FOOD
YOU NEED, BECAUSE THIS IS ALSO ONE OF THE REASONS WHY PEOPLE
EAT A LOT OF FOOD--BECAUSE YOUR BRAIN IS SAYING, "I HAVEN'T
BEEN FED." BECAUSE IF YOU'VE KILLED ALL YOUR FOOD,
YOU'VE KILLED ALL THE NUTRIENTS IN IT. YOU COOK IT TO DEATH
AND YOU'VE KILLED ALL THE NUTRIENTS, AND SO...
>> YOU'RE JUST FILLING UP.
>> SO YOU'RE EATING VOLUME, BUT YOUR BRAIN IS STILL SAYING,
"I HAVEN'T BEEN NOURISHED YET," SO THAT'S WHY PEOPLE WANT TO EAT
MORE AND MORE AND MORE, AND THEN THEY SAY, "NOW I FEEL FULL."
BUT IF YOU'RE EATING MORE AND MORE LIVE FOOD, FRESH FRUITS
AND VEGETABLES, YOU DON'T NEED AS MUCH FOOD, AND YOU'LL FEEL
THE ENERGY.
>> YOU'LL FEEL IT.
>> YOU'LL REALLY, REALLY FEEL IT.
>> YOU'VE INSPIRED ME. THIS IS VERY INTERESTING. THANK YOU.
>> SO, THERE ARE LITTLE STEPS YOU CAN MAKE. LIKE, FOR
INSTANCE, I KNOW WE'RE IN A BIG DAIRY AND CATTLE REGION HERE,
SO I DON'T WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE, BUT AGAIN, PEOPLE SAY,
"WELL, I'LL NEVER GIVE UP MEAT," AND THEN I SAY TO THEM,
"WELL, YOU COULD GIVE UP MEAT MAYBE ONE DAY A WEEK..."
>> OH, MM-HMM.
>> "AND THINK..."
>> MODERATION.
>> YEAH, SO YOU CAN MAKE CHANGES THAT HELP THE EARTH AND HELP
YOURSELF, HELP YOUR BODY, HELP ANIMALS--MORE ANIMALS
WILL LIVE--AND THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN DO. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO
BE ALL OR NOTHING.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND I FIND THAT THAT INGRATIATES MORE PEOPLE INTO
MAKING CHANGES IN THEIR LIVES WHEN THEY DON'T FEEL LIKE
"I COULD NEVER DO THAT" OR "I WOULD NEVER WANT
TO DO THAT." THEN PEOPLE SAY-- >> THAT SETS YOU UP FOR FAILURE.
>> IT DOES, AND THEN YOU GET IRRITATED, AND THEN YOU RESENT
THE PERSON OFFERING THE HELP, SO I SAY, WELL, LET'S FIND
A HAPPY MEDIUM HERE, AND THEN PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY GET A LEG
UP AND THEY SAY, "I FEEL SOME SUCCESS IN THIS. I'M MAKING
A CONTRIBUTION. I'M IMPROVING MY WAY OF LIFE AND YET I DON'T
FEEL LIKE I'VE MADE SUCH HUGE SACRIFICES THAT I HAVE TO BE
MISERABLE TO BE HEALTHY."
>> [LAUGHS] YEAH.
LIFE'S TOO SHORT, AS THEY SAY.
>> EXACTLY. AND THEN WHEN YOU START HAVING THESE LITTLE
SUCCESSES, THE INSPIRATION GROWS INSIDE ONE'S SELF TO INCREASE,
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PUSHED OR COERCED OR DO SOME FANATICAL
FAD DIET THAT'S ONLY GOING TO PUT YOU IN A HOSPITAL ANYWAY.
OR IF IT DOESN'T, YOU'RE GOING TO GAIN BACK EVERYTHING
YOU'VE LOST.
>> AND SO MANY PEOPLE DO THAT YO-YO DIETING.
>> OH, YEAH. YOU'LL LOSE 20 OR 30 AND THEN GAIN 40
6 MONTHS LATER.
>> WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS. IT'S REALLY
INSPIRING. I APPRECIATE GETTING TO TALK TO YOU TODAY.
>> OH, YOU'RE WELCOME.
THERE'S SO MUCH MORE.
IT'S A BIG SUBJECT, SO. [LAUGHS] >> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED
THE SHOW TODAY.
NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW HUMOR
CAN RELIEVE STRESS, WE'LL LEARN HOW TO STAMP A QUILT, AND
DEMONSTRATE SOME GREAT TURKEY RECIPES FOR YEAR-ROUND DINING.
ONE OF MY NEXT GUESTS IS A MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER, AND
SHE'S GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW HUMOR CAN HELP RELIEVE STRESS.
WE KNOW STRESS IS INEVITABLE IN TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT AND SOME
PEOPLE WEATHER THE STRAIN BETTER THAN OTHERS. MANY ACCOMPLISH
THIS THROUGH HUMOR.
ANOTHER GUEST IS A DESIGNER AND CRAFTER, AND SHE'S GOING TO
SHOW HOW TO USE SPECIALTY STAMPS TO STAMP OUT A REAL QUILT.
THE STAMPS ARE CREATED WITHOUT A LIP SO YOU CAN EASILY
PLACE THEM NEXT TO EACH OTHER TO CREATE AWESOME ART,
MIXED MEDIA PIECES, BACKGROUNDS AND MUCH MORE.
AND WE'LL ALSO MEET A SPOKESPERSON AND HOME ECONOMIST
FOR BUTTERBALL, AND SHE'S GOING TO TELL HOW TO ENJOY
TURKEY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, NOT JUST DURING THE HOLIDAYS.
SHE'LL DEMONSTRATE TRADITIONAL TURKEY IDEAS WITH A MORE
CONTEMPORARY TWIST.
ALL OF THESE TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON THE NEXT
"CREATIVE LIVING" SHOW.
IF YOU EVER HAVE COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS OR IDEAS FOR SHOWS,
YOU CAN E-MAIL ME AT SHERYL.BORDEN@ENMU.EDU.
I HOPE YOU'LL PLAN TO JOIN ME NEXT TIME
