    You will not be counting calories here.

    But the way you describe your "eating healthy" it sounds like you're still eating junk food. Lose the wheat and sugar (fruit) if you want to lose weight.

    Celiac is not the same thing as gluten intolerance. Celiac compromises the integrity of one's intestines (antibodies actually attack the lining) whereas gluten intolerance gives a person (sometimes...

    I think it depends on your type of hair or the kind of braid you're doing. I braid my hair quite frequently after it is wet; it's easier to braid this way, and prevents tangles from forming as it...

    I have never understood why the whole grain thing was apparently healthier. What, eating crushed up bits of a grain is unhealthy? Isn't that what you do with your teeth anyway?

    Braids will indeed not break hair--and be sure to tie them up with an elastic hairband covered in cloth (you can get a pack of 100 "Scunci" brand black hair ties in any drug or grocery store). The...

    I don't think this is fat shaming. I think it is just a cultural barrier. I wouldn't be surprised if it's okay to comment (or even complement) a woman's weight gain after pregnancy, in India. I had a...

    With as long as it takes to actually grow hair out to the point where a baby could reach it and yank it out, said baby would have already aged well past the hair-tearing years.

    When I lay on my back, my head and neck stay in one place. No support needed. If I lay on my side, I need a pillow to support the neck into the 'comfort zone.' I have a softer mattress, though, so...

    Grok probably would have found laying on a grassy or leafy surface much more comfortable if done on the back, rather than on the side or the stomach. Grok didn't have pillows to support his head or...

    The longest I have had my hair was down to my lower back, below the rib cage. Right now it is at mid-back, but I am in the process of growing out a short bob cut I got in 2011. Long process!

    Every once in a while I will buy lettuce (or kale, or spinach) thinking salads or wraps would make great lunches. Then, I eat about maximum of 1/3 of the leaves, and the rest goes bad. I have to keep...

    Yes, self-defense, like all the people who have shot unarmed black men because they felt intimidated by their appearance. Self-defense isn't an excuse for discriminatory exclusion.

    I don't give things any time before taking antibiotics.

    I eat dairy and drink alcohol. My body only goes "What is this ****?" if I've had too much. So, it's all in moderation. Try slowly re-introducing things. I recommend aged cheeses and yogurt for the...
