Did you know that the healthy body fat percentages for women can change? Women have more body fat than men do. On average, women have about five percent more body fat. The reason for that is based on genetics. The female body is genetically designed to protect her and her potential fetus. It is a Gender Thing Chemically, women have more enzymes for storing fat and fewer enzymes for burning fat. In addition, the estrogen that women have activates fat storing enzymes and causes them to easily multiply. It is a Water Thing Because of their menstrual cycles, women experience more changes in...

Recently a friend of mine had a new baby and now she has to go thru the agonizing process of finding a pediatrician. Her medical plan has over 20 doctors to choose from in New York City alone that I suggested she invite the top 20, and have a speed dating type party only she would be picking a doctor. Each Dr. gets 3 minutes to tell you why they would be best for the infant and you make your choice based on their answers. What questions would you ask? What information would you want to hear? Would house calls at midnight be a good enough quality? Would extended hours be the best selling... Read More
As the summer weather started breaking through the morning fog in early April, I realized that summer was inevitably on its way and would soon be upon me. I let out a breathless sigh and slipped easily into daydreaming about all the wonderful activities the summer would bring: early mornings at the Sidewalk Cafe in Venice, picnicking on the white sands of Malibu, hitting my old stomping grounds in Manhattan Beach and walking the pier with a diet coke in one hand and an extra thick slice of Zeppy's pizza in the other--and then, of course, there's that sexy little two-piece bathing suit I bought...

I like to think of myself as someone who acknowledges trends but is not ruled by them. For example, I know the 1980's are back in fashion, but I didn't tease my bangs the first time around, so it's even less likely to happen now. And yes, pegged pants make your (and my) butt look big. Speaking of which, if you're reading this and are American there is a greater than 65% chance that your butt is actually big. The obesity epidemic is saturated with duplicity. Fat people lie about how much they eat, diet gurus "fudge" the facts about how much people can actually lose and food makers spin... Read More
The beginning of the year is a time when many people's thoughts turn to self-improvement. For most of us this means eating better, committing to finally working out, or finishing that novel. But for some, this means a new nose or bigger breasts. And increasingly the segment of the population considering cosmetic surgery is under the age of eighteen. A few weeks ago I came across a young adult novel about cosmetic surgery. The heroine was only sixteen. She had already had one procedure and was considering another. I was disturbed by the idea that this was a subject that needed to be dealt... Read More
