Want to Weigh Less? Eat More Often — Health Check

A new study finds those who’ve lost weight and kept it off tend to eat more often than heavier people — yet still took in fewer daily calories.

Lead researcher Jessica Bachman, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Marywood University in Scranton, PA, was part of a group that profiled 250 people who’d lost significant amounts of weight. The key was to learn how they maintain their weight loss in order to help others lose weight and keep it off.

Tanning: My Real Concerns

When it comes to tanning beds, I have only one real concern. The first tan of the season. Yeah, I’m not real concerned with the health issues because, let’s be honest, what CAN’T be bad for you these days?

Then I was informed they would try to fill it in half an hour and to check back.
