    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!

    An_1552, I think that officially makes you the youngest of the group so far. I think you are even younger than one of our other members that was here, Pi.
    Well, all ages is better. Widens our perspective about how the journey affects us at different times in our lives, right?

    I have a less painful way of opening pomegranates anyway, I cut them open and manually tear the skin off, brushing the seeds into a bowl so I can then eat them at my leisure. I used to hate eating them until I found this way of doing it. In the right season, I usually prepare one or two of these a night for myself and my spouse. I used to be addicted, then I started sharing them, now we are both addicted. We buy about ten a week in season! It's kind of crazy. But delicious. Also, the pomegranates down here are a whole lot tastier, sweet but not cloying like the ones up in Washington were.

    Roh, do you chew the seeds or just swallow them whole after getting the gel fruit off of them? Are the seeds dangerous in any way? Do they in and of themselves add any fiber without the gel?
