See Dr. and eat less: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar and simple-starch calories. ...Read more

What's the best way to mastubate for female and to show partner ?

Try a vibrator: Sometimes adding a vibrator helps increase the stimulation. You can buy a simple muscle massager at the drug store, or Trojan brand even makes and sells them now right there in the condom section. Practice by yourself, don't be afraid to fantasize, and when you get good at it bring your partner in. Sometimes it's harder with someone else in the room, it may take longer; stay focused on the feeling ...Read more

Absolutely: Make sure you're healthy enough to do so if you haven't been exercising regularly already. Mother nature behaves like she meant for us to die after 45 as our eggs run out and metabolism slows. As cave people, we'd get fat, slow and be eaten.Look at persisting at regular exercise as a way of laughing in her face. Got to reduce calories, too, dammit. But the alternative is ... Well, worse! ...Read more

Water Walking: Drink 8 tall glasses of water a day, walk 10,000 steps a day, and try for 8 fruits and veggies a day. These three behaviors are the key to health and losing weight. Build up on the walking and use a pedometer as built in to this program.
