My friend Jake was unable to obtain a standard life insurance policy because he was overweight, and at a high risk for a heart attack, diabetes and other health problems. He read my book Life in Balance Cookbook, lost over 100 pounds, and became a competitive triathlete! One of Jake’s favorite recipe is Tom’s “Fried” Rice, created by my husband Tom. Try it out for you yourself and see why it has contributed to Jake’s success.
