LOSE WEIGHT: A hedge fund guy I know — who never struck me as fat — spent $13 million of his own cash to develop SweetDefeat, which you can try out for quite a bit less.* It’s a tiny plant-based lozenge you dissolve on your tongue that blocks your ability to taste sweetness. This reviewer tells the story. (And — FREE BONUS! — note her link to a separate study, of a separate weight-loss idea, showing that if you take a whiff of peppermint every two hours, you’ll consume 2,800 fewer calories a week.)
QUIT SMOKING: Here’s how Garrison Keillor kicked a three-pack-a-day habit. A really nice read. And here’s the book I’ve plugged before that’s help literally millions of people quit — including Ellen DeGeneres and at least one of you (who wrote to tell me). Allen Carr’s Easy Way To Stop Smoking. (Or as I put it in my book: one way, when you get to be my age, you have an extra $1 million in your Roth IRA; the other way, you’re broke and have lung cancer. Stark, yes — but our young friends really need to know this.)
SAVE THE WORLD: It’s not about advertising — persuading Trump supporters to vote Democrat — it’s about ORGANIZING — getting those literally tens of millions who reliably vote Democrat every four years but not in midterms to vote in this mid-term.

I’ll see whatever you do and jump through the screen to say . . .
