    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    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.

    You will either need their books, online tools, or a points calculator. All of which they will happily sell you.

    It's just a new way to do the same ole same ole.

    When choosing a diet you should look at different diets and decide which one you can live with and do over the long term. You should also make sure it's a healthy safe diet.

    Good luck
