Everybody occasionally indulges in a little comfort eating. It might be a bigger than usual dessert as a treat to themselves after a particularly hard day, or a big bar of chocolate after a row with a partner. Occasional emotional eating then is normal and relatively harmless. When it becomes a habit however, that is…

Most of us have at least one part of our body that, however hard we diet and exercise, just  never quite looks the way we’d like. For a lot of women (and men too) that problem area is the belly. The quest for a flat stomach (or a flatter stomach at least) is one that…

Years ago, soda was considered to be something reserved for an occasional treat. A bottle lasted a week and was rationed out and limited. That has all changed now. Drinking soda with every meal, and without a meal, just as a general thirst quencher, has become the norm for many, especially kids. The Big Problem…
