30 Bananas a Day!

I just wanted to post a little reminder of how important vitamin D and getting sunshine is-especially in the winter. Last year I was in Norway living in one of the rainiest cities in Europe. I tried to get by without supplementing, hoping that my supposed fat stores would get me through just a few months. Wrong! I was out of there by this time last year because I was getting so sick and was definitely not happy! I started to have a lot of trouble digesting food and my bones were getting soft. The picture below is actually almost flattering for how sickly looking I felt. Compare the two for yourself and decide which one you think looks healthier... And if you don't have too many options for sunshine this time of year, take the freaking supplements.


and if we want to be over dramatic, this is a picture from mid summer

I personally have seen sun damage on people.  I let the sun shine on my body in the summer but I do cover my face with a big sunhat.  I'm trying to get the best of both worlds.

Ohh, I need to put the Hoover Dam on my bucket list if I visit the states.

pictures should be taken in the same or similar context otherwise it's tricky to compare. I'm gone test the two options, will go to a tanning bed hopefully by next week.

Debbie I'm with Lisa as far as taking supplements over tanning beds. Supposedly they give u the vita d you need, but people who over use them look much worse than those on SAD who over tan with the normal sun imo, so i feel like there's more damage being done there. 
Lisa the 2nd pic is from the Hoover Dam.

I agree - Canada is as bad as Norway when it comes to getting enough sunlight.  I take 1,000 units of a liquid vitamin D3.

P.S. is that second pic from Norway?  Beautiful landscapes!
