    A 12 year old SHOULD be gaining weight. She's still growing! And two pounds? As your mother, I think you should encourage a body image that does not revolve around the scale of all things.

    Well, according to the theory that few actually believe in, if you ate 10x that much, you might gain a pound.

    Salt deadens the taste buds?? Lies. In my opinion, and I think any cook will tell you the same, boiling potatoes in water without adding salt is a grievous error. Adding just a little salt to most...

    I walk around thinking to myself that I'm large, but when I weigh/measure, I know that's not really the case. I can't compare myself to others accurately. I feel like I have no idea what I really...

    I feel like the media is promoting something other than a .7 WHR anyway. Women that are portrayed as beautiful seem to have small waists, yes, but also small hips. So their ratios would be higher,...
