Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that means bellies will be getting stuffed. How can I resist all that food I love so much in order to cut down my weight?

Before you eat will help. Fill a moderate-size plate and wait 1/2 hour before seconds. ...Read more

If only that easy...: Body sculpting sounds promising (& there are gimmicks & diets that promise you their products can do this), but the only way to effectively spot-reduce unwanted tissue is to surgically remove it. The "pear" body type preferentially stores fat around the hips; "apples" store it around their waist. Lose 1 pound of fat for every 3500 calories you drop or exercise off, but you can't pick where--sorry. ...Read more
