    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Read and Pay attention to the food nuitrition food labels

    Look at all the "light", "smart", and "healthy" frozen food entrees as the sodium and carbs totals are very high. You may think that these entrees are convenient and healthy, but they are packed with fat and carbs you don't need and once eaten, you don't feel full. I find that if I plan ahead and pre-make most of my meals eaten outside the home, the fat, carb, and sodium levels are manageable. A portion of grilled/broiled haddock/cod is only 93 calories, no fat and no carbs. Add two cups of field green mixed salad, a spray of good vinegar, a small whole wheat roll, and a piece of fresh fruit and you are eating healthier than ever. You will find yourself satisfied and save a lot money.

    Not making time for you is never a good excuse. Been there, done that, through with it!
