Yes: Milk continues to be one of the best beverages for average consumption. Not only does it contain healthy nutrients and vitamins, it also replaces the other beverages high in high fructose corn syrup. So by all means drink up. Obviously it's best to stick with the low fat variety.

Not too good: Most claims of fat burners are just that, empty claims. Most of us would like such quick fixes but unfortunately there's not much evidence that this type of pill works at all.

Plenty: A no carb diet is the extreme of a low carb diet. Carbs provide energy for daily activities including exercise. Fruits and vegetables are carbs and have an abundance of antioxidants. The bottom line is that most things taken o the extreme are not good. The body, at least for the long term, is about balance.
