  With nearly seventy percent of Americans currently being overweight or obese, I think it’s safe to say that there’s no shortage of belly fat around.

It’s a fact—carb addiction is real! (Here’s how to break free)

She used to sneak to the little store across the street from the office and buy cookies or candy after lunch.

What you don’t know about fats can kill you

What you don’t know about fats can kill you

  I once attended a presentation geared toward local business owners and after the speaker’s lecture, they offered coffee, tea and cake for refreshments. As I walked by with my cup of tea, the woman cutting the cake asked if I’d like a piece and I said, “No thank you.” She responded, “Oh, go ahead and have a piece.  It’s healthy.” I’m not often speechless, but this time I was.
