How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Ladies and gents, meet Linda Wood Hoyte, 70 years of age. Yep. You read that right.
It’s March, and we’re just months away from bikini season, and quite frankly, I’m getting a bit flabby in the parts that will be showing by summer. I don’t like to skip my exercises when I’m traveling so I’ve been taking a three-series exercise DVD with me that has 1) kicked my ass 2)been so intense I can not finish the workout. Both are really good things, because in the last two weeks those flabby spots have firmed right up. Muscle fatigue is a really, really good thing. Feel and relish the burn, ladies…
House Republicans think rape is negotiable. I think it’s safe to say all is lost…
Bacteria festering between your teeth can lead to that crud making it’s way through your entire body.
Turns out it’s belly fat, not BMI that determines the risk factors for heart disease.
When Dr. John Salerno – a protégé of “Atkins Diet” creator Dr. Robert Atkins – testified before the U.S.D.A. about plans for its most recent Food Pyramid revision, he spoke his mind: The food industry is corrupt and has supported recommendations that do not support the population’s health.
It’s official. In a study conducted by Yale University, people who practiced yoga at least three times a week reduced their risk of hypertension and heart disease. This is good news, especially for African American women, who are at high risk of both high blood pressure and heart disease.
And guess why they’re doing that? Because to some degree, SHAME WORKS.
Make no mistake…this is a stealth form of abuse.
Online you can now find tons of credible research extolling the health virtues of the Japanese Sweet Potato or Korean yam (also known as “goguma”), which forms the cornerstone of the diets belonging to the globe’s longest-lived populations, like the Okinawans in Japan.
“Hidden sugar, preservatives and highly processed white starch are what are really causing our health epidemic in the United States.”
Ever since BB&W regular, Law Wanxi, wrote to me with an uncomfortable truth, that women are pretty much on their own when it comes to birth control, the more I believe he might be right. That’s why I got excited when the geniuses at the University of Washington have created a dissolving female condom that not only protects women from unwanted pregnancy, but is said to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS.
Innate social messaging systems tell Black women that they have to overcome, challenge, beat, and win every single thing they do. And, the Superwoman Complex is a leading indicator of stressful lifestyles for Black women. Do you cope with this or mask it?
Well, I have to admit I’m shocked at this one. The American Academy of Pediatrics is now recommending that teenagers be given prescriptions for Plan B, an emergency contraceptive that generally reduces the fertilization of egg and sperm with hopes that the measure will reduce teen pregnancy. Would you give it to your daughter?
I have a very close relative, morbidly obese, who may hold a funeral service for hostess–she’ll be crushed. She eats Twinkies with the gusto of a $20 whore giving fellatio.
Who else here thinks risking your life to meet some ridiculous beauty FAD is about as dumb as you can get? You don’t see men doing this crazy crap to get a date. They’ll go to the gym, maybe get some hair implants and get their teeth fixed, but that’s about it. What’s up with us??
According to folks that know, dance classes are the hottest trend in health and fitness.
America is getting bigger. While population is growing so is the average size of the waistbands on Americans’ jeans. The expansion in the number of overweight Americans is partly explained by the lack of ability by poor people to purchase the kind of affordable and nutritious food which would keep them healthy and slimmer. The food gap, as Winne refers to it, is the gap between the ability of the middle- and upper-classes to access high quality, nutritious food at an affordable price and with relative ease, while on the other side of the chasm there are millions of poor people who lack access and an ability to pay for the same high-quality food as their middle-class neighbors.
New research suggests that a large deposits of belly fat are just as bad on the body as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.
