Want to Lose Weight? 5 Superfoods to Add to Your Diet Today
In the recent essay she wrote for Time.com, Alter said of that long-ago discussion, Pick your jaw up from the floor and put away your pitchfork, because this nugget of real talk was one of the best things my mother ever did. Alter, who lives in Montclair, N.J., said the conversation was the first of many candid exchanges she had with her mother about her weight. She believes her mothers willingness to face the problem of weight gain head on makes a lot more sense than a Zen-like acceptance of my body. Eventually, it becomes too exhausting to maintain total acceptance of the way we look, and the self-love gets drowned in a wave of self-doubt fueled by everything from the media to the kids at school, she wrote in her Time piece. Those talks, Alter said, didnt seem like a condemnation. They seemed like a reality check, one that set up a lifelong healthy relationship with her body, her weight and her mom. Good for her.

Overweight Patients Have the Best Intentions to Lose Weight After Joint Replacement
“Previous studies provided conflicting evidence regarding whether patients lose or gain weight after lower extremity joint replacement,” Dr. Westrich said. “And prior to our study, there was little research examining whether weight change after joint replacement was associated with a difference in clinical outcomes. We aimed to answer these questions, and also see if there are factors that predispose patients to gain or lose weight after surgery.” Using the HSS joint replacement registry, researchers examined the two-year change in body mass indices (BMI) for all patients undergoing elective hip or knee replacement surgery to relieve osteoarthritis. A total of 3,036 knee and 3,893 hip replacement surgeries were reviewed.
