The Benifits of Morning Exercise

by Rhianna on March 12, 2014

It has been a little while since I have managed to get up early of a morning and go for a walk, and of course as you get out of the habit, it becomes easier and easier to sleep in and forget about exercise all together. Catching myself falling into this habit, I set my

Losing Weight on Twinkies?

by Leisa on December 8, 2010

I was watching this story with interest, and have to say I shook my head at the idiocy of it all and wondered what this Professor was really trying to prove. Mike Adams at Natural News says it well: “(NaturalNews) Over the last month or so, the mainstream media has been making a huge deal
