*loneliness* Great advice. It is pretty easy to see where this makes sense. I know a lot of people who snack out of boredom, not even aware of how many calories they ingest simply because they haven't assigned a better activity for little pockets of time.
Cinnamon: Great for regulating blood sugar levels as well as lowering bad cholesterol. My cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels (A1C test) reduced after a year of taking this. In addition there are mild anti-clotting and anti-bacterial actions to this well-known substance! You can simply sprinkle it onto food if you don't want to take capsules, but I find it's just easier to take capsules. http://www.organicauthority.com/health/11-health-benefits-of-cinnamon.html
