Believe it or not, I used to be where you are. A size 16. I was huge! And I tried every weight loss diet out there to no avail. I wish I knew then what I know now about the physical transitions of life. Losing weight was never easy for me because I had a slow moving metabolism!In all honesty, losing weight is not easy! I don't care what the so-called “experts” tell you. BUT the good news is, there are keys that “experts” won't tell you that will help you become successful at weight loss. That is until after they read this article. LOL...See, most dietitions and nutritionists (the “experts”)... Read More

The notion that seeing things anew was always more of a metaphor than a fact of life, or so I thought; but being hopelessly myopic had been at best a restriction that, over time, was something I had become accustomed to. Little did I know how much it had effected my perceptions about so many things.

The first thing I would reach for in the morning were my glasses, usually very expensive and so thick that I could never hope to get frames that were fashionable. Everything was so out of focus that when my vision worsened I had no clue what was happening until I started noticing... Read More

Heading into the "Season of Cheer," where we are forced into close proximity for extended periods of time with the one's we love often causes an increase in our stress levels. Higher stress levels tend to lead to more headaches. A new study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology concludes that, when you reach for that Tylenol bottle, taking tiny amounts over the recommended dose may kill you.

Too much Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol and many other pain killers, over a period of a number of days are known as "staggered overdoses." Deaths caused... Read More

When your dad is your dentist for all of your childhood (like mine), you get used to knowing the person who is doing your dentistry will do everything in their power to make sure it turns out right. And because he made no money on it, he did what was needed--no more, no less. That should be everybody's experience but economics and insurance interests conspire to punish that sort of long-term patient care approach.I think a lot of people make the assumption that dentists must live high on the hog, raking in extraordinary fees just because they can. We're led to believe that insurers have... Read More

New research says eating less salt doesn't benefit our overall health, our dietitian Tracy Parker unpicks the findings.

Eating too much salt is bad for your blood pressure. That’s the advice that you’ll regularly get from dietitian’s like me. However, new research out today suggests reducing the amount of salt – or specifically sodium - you eat may not be as good for your overall health as we thought.

So what exactly does the study say?

Well researchers looked at the findings from lots of previous studies (known as meta-analysis into blood pressure). By combining the... Read More

I hate Yoga. No, I really mean I hate it. I hate the holier-than-thou attitude of those who practice it, and the way they insinuate that they are better inside because they do it. I hate the soft way people talk while they're doing it. I hate that the teachers walk around the room and talk about breathing all the time, as if that is going to rid me of the results of the pints and pints of coffee ice cream I've eaten over the course of my lifetime. Everyone knows that if your breathing isn't labored, you are not feeling the burn, which means you will not see results. Yoga people are thin, not... Read More

Two male African penguins which have formed a same sex partnership with one another at Toronto Zoo are to be separated and encouraged to mate with females.

With Pedro and Buddy’s species on the brink of extinction, Tom Mason, curator of birds and invertebrates, insists that the zoo cannot afford to let a season go by without the pair passing on their genes.

“If [Pedro and Buddy] weren’t genetically important, then we’d let them do their thing,” Mr Mason explained.

The plight of Buddy, 20, and Pedro, 10, has caused something of an outcry in Canada. The birds, both bred in... Read More
