The Corset Diet? We'll Pass (And So Should You)

2013 was the year of the Paleo diet, suggesting that we all channel our inner cave people and gnaw away at entire pigs on a spit with a twigs and leaves chaser (or something like that).

Federal Trade Commission Charges Four Familiar Weight-Loss Companies With Fraud

Oh, you can't lose weight and get a "gym body" just by sprinkling some weird powder of undisclosed ingredients onto your food? You don't say. The ambitious (and completely unrealistic) claims made by sketchy weight-loss products like Sensa and LeanSpa may be tempting -- who wouldn't jump at the chance to achieve said gym body without spending one precious second on the elliptical? -- but we've always seen them for what they are, and that's sketchy. How these companies have been able to continue their ridiculous marketing over the years is beyond us. At last, the Federal Trade Commission is cracking down, and they're not going to let these products get away with it anymore.   read more

My food baby had just become a permanent fixture.   read more

The Paleo Diet Tops Yearly Trend Reports

We promised we wouldn't start talking about diets again until after the new year, but we've got to start somewhere, and all signs point to Paleo. According to Google's annual trend report, the no-carb, meat-heavy lifestyle was the most-searched diet of 2013. Honestly, we think we know why -- unlike juice cleanses, or the perplexing Dukan diet that was all the rage earlier this year, eating Paleo sounds like something we could actually maintain without starving to death, or worse, sacrificing our social lives.   read more
