FDA To (Finally!) Fight Misleading Food Labeling

Stroll down any grocery aisle and you are bound to see a bevy of foods with labels proclaiming products “Healthy” or a “Smart Choice”. But are all these foods really good for you? According to Reuters, the FDA is now looking into whether these claims are a misleading marketing scheme or a true measure of a food’s nutritional value.

Acupuncture and Weight Loss

Last month, a colleague approached me about exploring the role of acupuncture in weight loss. As a traditional Western medicine physician, I was skeptical about its merits. While many of my patients have used herbs and other holistic treatments, I have never been a believer. But, since I am willing to do anything to help my patients, I decided to use myself as a guinea pig to see if acupuncture was something I should be recommending.



First, I did some research. I wanted to know the… Continue

Weight and Fitness Update with Photos

4-month Dietoversary picture:



It appears that I'm going to need new work-out clothes. I had purchased Danskin capris and shorts from Walmart, but now they are sliding off my rear and hips as I work-out. Kind-of poses an issue when your pants are falling, and you have to stop working-out to pull them up, or they're being held up by the leg-strap on the EAS Active. Heh.…

Our Worst Fears Are Coming True. America's Children Are Dying.

And now it is happening.



According to the St. Louis County medical examiner, a 13-year old football player who collapsed during football practice died as a direct result of “hypertensive cardiovascular… Continue

The Cupcake Wars: As Seen in the NY Times (Plus More!)

The Cupcake Wars: As Seen in the NY Times (Plus More!)

Last week, there was an article in the NY Times about Meme Roth and her fight with her children’s school concerning school birthday parties and cupcakes.



What sets her off is the junk food served on special occasions: the cupcakes that come out for every birthday, the doughnuts her children were once given in gym, the sugary “Fun-Dip” packets that some parent provided the whole class on Valentine’s Day.

Why Adult Diets Are Not Appropriate For Children

Why should a child’s diet be different from an adult’s diet?



A child’s diet can not be the same as an adult’s diet for many reasons. A child’s body goes through many stages of development and his nutritional needs vary depending on which stage he is in. For example, a child in puberty requires more calories than a school-age child. Therefore, providing the correct nutritional plan at all stages of growth is crucial to ensure proper development. Let’s review several diets and why they… Continue
