This was a study designed to generate a predictably useless, misleading, and potentially harmful answer to an egregiously silly and perhaps even willfully disingenuous question. If science were generally this bad, we would never have exited the Stone Age.
I was a rather large boy when I was young. Not large in the height sense of the word, but more so in the girth sense. In fact, my mother used to buy m...
Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to experience everything summer has to offer. From family BBQs to naps on the beach, there's nothing quite like long balmy weekends. It's so beneficial for our mind and bodies to enjoy the great outdoors as much as possible. Incorporate water and exercise into the mix and you'll be feeling on top of the world.
Are you willing to embrace the weight of valuing yourself from the inside out and give up valuing yourself by your body weight which is merely a number on a scale, which can not tell you anything about your true worth?
Sure, over the past 15 years I've given birth twice -- once to twins -- and I noticed that I am rounder, softer... a bit more "zaftig." There's a lot more "stuffing," as my daughter referred to it recently while pointing to a mound of bare skin bulging out between my pants and t-shirt.
Growing up heavy (okay, fat), I quickly learned the best way to pose for pictures. After all, I knew I was very large, but on some weird level, I must...
Famously, when you have a hammer, you tend to see nails everywhere you look. As president of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, then, perhaps it's no surprise that I see opportunity to apply this remedy everywhere I look. Lifestyle medicine is my hammer.
Social dieters rely on real life strategies so they can keep up appearances -- you can beat the system and stick to your diet, you just need to know the tricks.
Understanding how to build new habits (and how your current ones work) is essential for making progress in your health, your happiness, and your life in general. But there can be a lot of information out there, and most of it isn't very simple to digest.

Take back your control. Don't be fooled by the commercialism of weight loss, the false promises, and the celebrities who are paid for their endorsements. A healthy weight loss is not a race, because there is no finish line.
When people assume fat people are lazy for not figuring it out, I wish I could prove just how much MORE energy I spent on trying to become smaller, more than I did on all of my other activities combined. And only a fat person knows what I'm talking about.
Your problem isn't finding time to clear your backlog, your problem is building behaviors to manage your pipeline. When you focus on a backlog, you're working the symptom instead of targeting the cause, looking backward instead of forward.
I challenge you to discover your trigger. Don't let it pass you by though. To the naked eye, your trigger may at first seem like a reason to eat a pint of Ben & Jerry's and binge-watch OITNB, but if you look closely, it could be your moment to shed some skin (and possibly, a few pounds).
Unfortunately, no one has an unending supply of willpower. If you are struggling, then you will have to avoid the temptations you find irresistible. If you're serious about losing weight and keeping it off, you might need to cut ties with certain situations or overindulging frenemies, at least for a little while, maybe forever.
Take back your control. Don't be made to feel inferior by the commercialism of weight loss, the false promises, and the celebrities who are paid for their endorsements. A healthy weight loss is not a race, because there is no finish line.
