Best new ways to boost the metabolism – In general, these are all pretty good advice. Good reminder, too.
Mom puts 7-year-old on a Diet in the Worst Vogue Article Ever – Reading this made me sick to my stomach, so much so that I couldn’t bring myself to read the original article written by the mother who did this to her daughter. I was humiliated constantly as a child about my weight, it did NOT HELP. It didn’t help me to form a healthy self image and it did not help me to develop a healthy relationship with food and it certainly didn’t do a damned thing to help me learn strategies for managing my weight. But, you know, carry on humiliating your kids, horrible parents.
Not that I have any strong feelings about this.
