After seeing friends and family members over the years poison themselves with bad eating habits and developing osteoporosis, diabetes, constant headaches and migraines, shoveling medicines for this pain or malady and that, weight problems, hypertension, cancer, stokes, depression, heart attacks, dementia and Alzheimer’s, etc., etc., I decided to really take charge of my own health. I’ve struggled with extra weight which I’ve tried in vain to get rid of, but until I began eating foods that did not cause reactivity (inflammation) and removing meat from my diet, did I see results. And, my blood pressure is the best it’s been in 15 years. I no longer take anti-depressants and I feel lighter and think more clearly.
The first actor to portray the Colonel was Saturday Night Live alum Darrell Hammond, who was later switched out six months later with comedian Norm Macdonald taking over the role. Then, Jim Gaffigan filled the white dress shoes. Each actor looked and sounded remarkably like the original Colonel, and many of those watching haven’t even been aware that the actors have been switched. (It has been reported that Hammond felt slighted when the company choose to replace him with Macdonald, but Hockman states that his contract was for only six months.)
