  • Active lifestyle can help fight diabetes

    November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and in recent years the spotlight has been on Type 2 Diabetes and its precursor – known as prediabetes. Both conditions have been increasing at startling rates in the adult population.

    New statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that 86 million people in the U.S. have prediabetes, up from 79 million people in 2010. The number of type 2 diabetes cases also continues to grow, fueled in part by a continued rise in the rate of obesity.

  • Muffin top: a love story

    I often reference my weight struggles in this column, and then sometimes, when I meet someone, they will say, “You are not fat. I don’t know why you wrote that.”

    I accept their words with a smile, but in my mind I am insisting, “three weeks ago when I wrote it I weighed at least 12 more pounds than I do now! You should see me naked. It’s hideous.”
