The media likes to hype up everything….from the upcoming “storm of the century,” to the “ten pounds you’re likely to gain during the holiday season.” Fact is, most of us don’t gain that much weight during the six-week period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.Below are two proven ways to keep from gaining!!
Rethink Your Drink
Beverages don’t contribute to fullness like foods do, so one proven way to keep your diet in check is to limit liquid calories. Avoiding alcohol can help even more because in addition to being loaded with calories, drinking stimulates your appetite while reducing your inhibitions to decadent treats.
Up Your Exercise Intensity
One of the best ways to make your body more resistant to extra calories is to get more exercise. In a recent study from the University of Utah, researchers found that a 45-minute bout of intense exercise countered most of the negative metabolic effects associated with increased calorie intake. So even if you do overeat during, exercise can hep prevent those calories from being stored as body fat.

When police arrived to the scene, the car was in flames and the victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Walker was the passenger in a friend’s car and the cause of the crash is still under investigation. It has been confirmed that former race car driver Roger Rodas was the driver of the red Porsche GT.

Rumor has it Basketball Wives’ Star Evelyn Lozada is expecting. And NO the baby is not Chad Ochocinco’s. Supposedly Lozada has been in a relationship with a mystery man for about a year now, and how many months pregnant do you think she is?.. .6 Months. She has said the pregnancy was “planned” and all of her family and close friends knew. She has been MIA, but this is possibly the best kept secret ever. I am interested to know who her new beau is . .What are your thoughts on this?
This morning Derrick Rose underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus on his right knee, an injury in result of Fridays game versus the Portland Trail Blazers. The surgery was performed at Rush University Medical Center by Dr. Brian Cole, the teams physician whom also repaired Rose’s torn ACL. Rose had two options either he would have his meniscus replaced and be back on the the floor within weeks or have it reattached which seems what Rose went with. By having it reattached it results in about 4 to 6 months on the sidelines.It is said that having your meniscus replaced causes more problems as time progresses in one’s basketball career. We hope to see Rose play again one day but for now he is out for the remainder of the season.
Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls is set to undergo surgery for a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. It is believed that the injury occurred as Rose tried to change direction to get on defense after Nicolas Batum from the Trail Blazers stole a pass from Joakim Noah. Rose was assisted to the locker room with only 3:20 remaining in the third quarter. His recovery time still has not been set but a meniscus tear isn’t an injury that could possibly end his season, since it is significantly less serious than his ACL tear last season. A meniscus removal has a shorter recovery time than a repair but, if Rose decides to have the meniscus reattached since it would be better for him in the long, run it could result in a longer recovery time. This injury will definitely be a test for Rose both mentally and physically, since he had hopes of coming back better than ever and regaining his MVP from.
