Saturated Fat: Wrongfully Accused?

Each week the results of new studies, published in well-respected journals, make news headlines. Often, the studies that create the most buzz are those that reinforce popular opinion.

Surviving the Holidays

We're in the middle of the holiday season. While the holiday season is about much more than food, the five-week period between Thanksgiving and New Year's is filled with more treats and sweets than people experience at any other part of the year. There is a way to manage your weight while still enjoying holiday foods.
