    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,

    Try to think of food as fuel for your body. You can give it a whole lot of regular unleaded and it wont get you as far as a half tank of Super Unleaded.
    It's not quantity your body needs it's quality. Make sure you get all of your daily recommended nutrients IN the HEALTHY FOOD that you eat, not in vitamin form. Raw, whole foods, low fat unprocessed meats, whole grains. Try to stay away from fried foods, most breads and white pastas and grains.
    Try baked Kale, it's been blogger tested by alot of us, good stuff , tastes a lot like potatoe chips and has way lower calories.
    Drink a full bottle or 16oz of water every time you get the hungries. Wait 10 min after finishing the water. I bet your body was thirsty , not hungry more than half the time. But if you are still hungry, grab 1 whole carrot or a handful of babies, or have presliced cucumber and celery in a ziplock top shelf in fridge so you can grab anytime.
    Hope this helps.
