Nov 20th 2010 6:19PM Consider that the couple met at a support group for folks who are trying to recover from overeating. This is not an acceptance of obesity.
Many people have tried diet and exercise and yet not been able to lose weight. It's not the same for everyone. The main characters are talented actors -- give them a break.
Oct 1st 2010 12:33PM Some dogs seem to hear these things, some don't. I've found that an empty tin can with 6 pennies in it works a lot better than any electronic device, altho I've also had good results with recording my dog's bark on a tiny recording device and playing it back when he barks. And his expression is priceless!
Aug 21st 2010 4:30PM Beau mentioned prostate cancer. The study I saw reported that skim milk was associated with an increase in prostate cancer, but whole milk was not! I don't know why.

Experimenting on your body with hormones may be worse than just wasteful; you may end up feeling hyper or tired without realizing it's the products you're taking to try to get better. Work with a doctor or nurse practitioner who has experience with natural hormone balancing.
Apr 26th 2010 10:42PM My doctor advised me to have a teaspoon of lemon juice with each meal, and I am supposed to avoid sweeteners. So squeezing a lemon slice into a spoon is what works for me.
The fact that restaurants are unsanitary is no surprise. They need to clean up their acts. On the other hand, the acid in lemon is said to kill bacteria.
As far as making your own lemonade, it's often the only way to get a drink without sweetener or caffeine.
Apr 2nd 2010 11:18AM If you read the characteristics, the first four apply to a lot of the folks commenting on this site:
Impulsive, hot-headed, dominant.
Having difficulty following rules.
Mar 19th 2010 7:10PM Good points. Replacing perfectly good things not only costs money but wastes materials and transportation fuel. I would extend the reasoning to CFLs -- user surveys show they don't save much energy in actual use (people tend to leave them on longer), and they are hazardous to health if broken. The EPA and State of Maine, among others, have clean-up recommendations that are alarming if you read them carefully. The mercury in CFLs is so dangerous that it can contaminate your vacuum cleaner and your carpet. The recommendation is that if a broken CFL lands on your carpet you should THROW AWAY a a large section of carpet. And don't use CFLs around small children. I think they should be banned as unsafe.
Feb 28th 2010 12:24PM Good grief, what a silly article. Of course a huge serving has more fat! But as someone who can't stand the glue-like aftertaste of McDonald's fries, I looked on McD's website and found that in addition to potatoes, oil and salt they contain, "natural beef flavor" [ which strangely has wheat and milk derivatives], citric acid, dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate, TBHQ and imethylpolysiloxane.
Now how can that be "healthy" anyway?

Feb 1st 2010 6:27PM That's clever, but I was hoping to read that they found a way to judge doneness in a restaurant using infrared. Even my favorite steakhouse has trouble getting it right.
