Healthy Geezer: High-protein diet

Thursday, October 3, 2019 by FRED CICETTI in Focus

Q. I’ve been on a diet high in proteins and low in carbohydrates for several weeks now and I’ve lost weight. What do you think of this type of diet?

These diets can bring a quick drop in weight because eliminating carbohydrates causes a loss of body fluids.

And, high-protein diets cause substances called “ketones” to be released into the bloodstream. The ketones make dieting easier by lowering appetite.

‘Prometheus’ returns, now Unbound

Thursday, October 3, 2019 by The Press in Focus

“Let’s go.”

Those were the last words uttered in “Steelbound,” Touchstone Theatre’s groundbreaking 1999 theatrical work that anchored its Steel Festival, a multi-arts festival celebrating Bethlehem’s heritage of steelmaking soon after the steelmaking stopped in Bethlehem.

Now, 20 years later, Touchstone, and Bethlehem, have moved forward, into the future. Touchstone is exploring that future in a new work, a sequel to “Steelbound” called “Prometheus/Redux,” which anchors a new and bigger festival, Festival UnBound.
