    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,

    Hi tammy
    the idea is to eat as many colors of fruits and vegies as you can each day it is the very first step to eating a healthy diet
    this insures that you are getting as many nutrients as possible ..
    you can just post what you are eating see if you need more colors fruits and vegies are filling and contain fiber that helps keep you regular it helps you feel better and fuller while eating less junk
