Is Married Life Making You Fat?

I came across this hilarious TikTok of a man devouring a plate of fried, fatty food that a woman cooked for him. He quickly goes from saying that he doesn’t want to be in a relationship to saying that he wants to marry the woman who made him such delicious food. This made me laugh out loud, but honestly all I can think when I watch this is; there is nothing green on his plate!

This Truth About Fat May Be Hard to Digest

Pregnant Women Should Not Eat For Two, But Perhaps They Should Be Drinking Water For Two

I recall gaining nearly 60 pounds when I was pregnant. I just could not seem to gain enough weight to satisfy my doctor. And I was not underweight when I got pregnant.  At 5'10" I weighed about 145 pounds. By my ninth month, I was almost 200 pounds.  It used to be quite common for doctors and other to tell pregnant patients that they were eating for two. "Eat as much as you want and whatever you want. Now is the time to do it,”  they said. 

Are You “Healthy Obese?” Here’s What You Need To Know

Super famous singer Lizzo is not exactly your average cookie-cutter pop star.

Why You Should Care About Carob, Especially If You Are Overweight

Healthy foods really can have magical effects. For example, foods high in vitamin C, such as lemon, orange, kiwi, broccoli and bell pepper, help prevent scurvy and may even help better manage diabetic foot ulcers and slow down aging of our skin. Carob powder appears to be another one of these magical foods.

A ‘Green Mediterranean Diet’ May Help Fight Fatty Liver Disease

An excessively fat liver is an unhealthy and possibly damaged liver. An accumulation of excess fat in the liver may be caused by being overweight or obese (which, of course, is usually the result of eating a poor, nutrient-void diet) and leading a sedentary lifestyle. People who carry a lot of belly fat (visceral fat) are especially prone to developing NAFLD. Visceral fat grows deep inside the stomach and may wrap around your vital organs (such as the liver). Having this type of fat may also increase the risk of type 2 diabetes.
