by You’ve planned your meals, kept a food journal, gone to the gym only to get on the scale and see only a half pound of weight loss. It’s just so frustrating! We’ve all heard that slow weight loss is best for weight maintenance, but why?

by When one of my friends turned 50 and was still single (after a few bad relationships and divorce) she said "That’s it. I am destined to be single for the rest of my life, so I better start loving myself. I’m all I got."Getting close to that age, and single myself, was I destined to be single for the rest of my life?

This may, in fact, be a classic example of the "proof of the pudding" being in the "eating."It should be stressed, though, that this "ignorance" has been deliberately peddled or imposed on Americans over a number of years.
