The clock is ticking for summer bathing suits, and the heat has eliminated the luxury of layering to hide unflattering curves.

Experts alike have been convincing us year in and year out, that being overweight has absolutely no benefits, unless of course you have one month to live. I mean ask yourself, don’t you just hate it when your old aunts corner you, and announce, fairly loudly, that you should lose weight, right in front of your slim cousin, while you are innocently holding on to the plate of your favorite fried snack

I don't agree with the cabbage soup diet

Hannah Gilmore on June 22, 2011:

The Hollywood diet or the cabbage soup diet looks pretty difficult, and sounds like another "fad" or "crash" diet. Another way to lose weight is by including green tea or green tea supplements in your daily diet and couple it with physical, cardiovascular exercise. Green Tea helps increase your metabolism, which helps reduce weight faster.
