Why Diets Fail

So many of us have tried to change our eating habits with very little long-term success. Often the results from “diets” are not permanent. It’s frustrating and defeating, and often causes people to think that this whole eating-healthy thing isn’t worth it because it doesn’t work. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great diets out there that will give you immediate results, but the problem is maintaining those results. We all know someone who has lost 40 pounds, only to gain 80 back. And the reasons are usually the same – the diet doesn’t ease you into huge changes nor does it teach you how to eat healthy to maintain your results.

Dear Dr. Eva,

What do you think about homeopathy? I know people who swear by it, but I have also heard that homeopathic medicines are just expensive water.

Solitude in a Relationship

Do you see solitude and relationships as compatible or mutually exclusive concepts? Over the years, I’ve known a number of people whose partnerships broke up due to disagreements, death, or entanglements with others. Some immediately sought another connection. By immediately, I mean in the next week, if not the next day. Those were people who just could not imagine life without a partner, and “needed” someone there for their emotional (and perhaps social or financial) support. Those connections had a faulty basis: If need is why you seek a person, you set yourself up for dependence – which in turn, fosters resentment sooner or later. Those negative feelings may come from the one who is needy, recognizing that there is that kind of need, or it may come from the one who is providing the support, who then feels the burden.

Transgender Rights at Risk

Whittling away at public- accommodation protections recalls some ugly American history

There will be a right for professional bakers not to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples on the same day when there is a right for barbers not to cut the hair of red-haired people, for clothing store store staff not to sell pants to Evangelicals, and for waiters not to serve dessert to Bernie voters.

Did you know that poor oral health can make it harder to control your diabetes, and lead to heart complications? Do you know how long you should wait to visit the dentist’s office if something in your mouth doesn’t feel right?

Unless you live in some remote, non-wifi location, it is not possible to get away from the general feeling of anxiety, worry and fear not only in our country but also in the world. The LGBTQ community, as well as those who are related to it, and many others to be sure, is even more affected by the recent developments in this regard.
