Drinking two glasses of red wine before bed could actually help you lose weight, according to two new studies by Washington State and Harvard Medical School.

Growing up, I was always overweight. I never exercised, and I found most of my comfort through food—and not the healthy stuff; my diet was carbs, carbs, and more carbs.

I was five years old when I had my first migraine. When my parents took me to the doctor, they told them these “headaches” would go away as I got older. They didn’t. As I got older, the migraines got worse. The debilitating pain would come at least once a week, and when I was

Just one look at her lifestyle blog will tell you Gwyneth Paltrow is the go-to girl for weird wellness fads. From a 24-carat gold dildo to ‘spirit truffles,’ her Goop-spruiked goodies range from being kinda comical to just downright bizarre.

BEFORE: 138kg AFTER: 61kg I grew up in a home that did not put a focus on healthy eating habits or the importance of physical activity. I played sports when I was younger, but once I grew into my teenage years, I gave those activities up, turning to a “party” lifestyle and was more focused
