Weight Loss HELP!

October 21, 2010

HEALTH TALK: I was reading Men's Health (which I always enjoy, for some reason) and ran across a post about a German study that's proven diet supplements don't help us lose weight.

Well, that's not a shocker.

Have you had any luck with diet pills? I never have.

I know a lot of people who have lost LOTS of weight by following a low-carb diet, but that's never worked for me either.

The only thing that's ever helped is weight training, mixed with a little cardio.

What works for you? Any favorite trainers, gyms, classes, or tips for the rest of us?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
