Suing donuts

Krispy Kreme has blamed its problems on popularity of low-carbohydrate diets …

Or perhaps could it have been those glazed-flavored drinks?

I’m in

I just signed up online for the National Body Challenge. Supposedly you can get the same goodies as if you come into the store, so I figured why not. Start date is the 15th, but no time like the present is my motto. ;)

And the winner is…

And all this time I’ve been a big NutriSystem cheerleader.

A review of 10 of the nation’s most popular weight-loss programs found that except for Weight Watchers, none of them offer proof that they actually work at helping people shed pounds and keep them off. Only Weight Watchers had strong documentation that it worked – with one study showing that participants lost around 5 percent (about 10 pounds) of their initial weight in six months and kept off about half of it two years later.

I’ve always had a brain fog when it comes to Weight Watchers. Could never grasp the points concept. But that was in my health ignorant years. I took a look at it over the summer and it seemed a bit clearer. Still I’m a no fuss no muss kinda gal and prepackaged eats from NutriSystem just does it for me.


Uh…waitaminute? Junk food in hospitals? Isn’t that an oxymoron?

Why Diets Fail

Ok so these tips are from Men’s Health, but I think it’s applicable to both sexes. And it’s suprisingly realistic about the phases you go thru when starting a new “diet”.

Features coming soon

Technically I’m shooting for weekends off from the blog, I’ll be working behind the scenes but no posting, but I must commerate the first of the year with an entry, for posterity sake if nothing else.

Some of the features I alluded to will be having a weekly poll. Just for giggles. While I don’t want the site to get too cluttered I’d like to make the site more interactive. In the original version of my old site, the one started back in the winter of 03, I had TONS of things for people to do, I made myself dizzy. Not this time.
