    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,

    I've been seeing videos and looked at some reviews of "The Venus Factor" by John Barban. Is it legit? Is the science sound?

    Wait till you can get a copy of the book through your library system. Book stores are filled with books purporting to have some revolutionary idea that will make you healthy and beautiful. Really. Does your health and attractiveness depend on specific body measurements and is it worth the trouble to attempt to achieve them? And with all the body types in the world is yours one that can achieve whatever the book claims? A good diet and exercise program will keep you trim and healthy. But customers buying the book will most likely just keep the author and publisher trim and healthy.
