    Why is it important too reduce waist circumference?
    Posted by Cheryl Komline, 6/24/2010 5:45 PM.
    I am sure you have heard of Body Mass Index which is also called BMI. This is considered a convenient and reliable measure of obesity.

Waist circumference along with BMI is a more accurate measure of overall disease risk. You are most likely to get heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and high ...

    Hi laurie,Is it true that when you begin a diet and excercise regularly (from no exercise at all) that you could actually gain weight because you are developing muscle and muscle weighs more than fat?

    Diet Soda
    Posted by Kathy Roberts, 3/8/2009 8:03 PM.
    I have been drinking quite a bit of diet soda lately as someone told me that if you fill up on diet soda it will curb your appetite and help you lose weight. I am drinking about 4-5 cans a day. Is this a problem?
