You’ve seen the headlines on popular magazines about celebrities who get back their ‘pre-baby body’ within about a month or so of giving birth. Maybe some of them may just be blessed with exceptionally elastic skin; or they have time to do 500 abdominal crunches per day, as well as the ability to say no to every source of refined sugar—even at 2 a.m. when that doughnut looks awfully good while the little one is nursing.
‘Muffin top’ is a problem for many people, especially as they age. That little tummy bulge that never seems to go away, even with diet and exercise, can be maddening. Fortunately, it can be reduced via a number of cosmetic procedures, and liposuction is among the most popular.
Nothing about the discussion of obesity is simple, according to Katie Thompson, a primary therapist with Castlewood Treatment Center for Eating Disorders. And the American Medical Association’s (AMA) recent decision to recognize obesity as a disease—not just a condition that causes disease—complicates matters even more.

When you ‘reach a certain age,’ health recommendations begin to change. Certain screenings and immunizations become more important. But one thing that doesn’t change as we age is the recommended amount of exercise.
So, last week the Ladue News staff was sitting around the conference room for a typical weekly meeting—you know, sipping Champagne and waiting for the mini-quiche to come out of the oven—when someone offered up a story idea: Why don’t we do a diet-and-nutrition series and extol the virtues of different diets?

Don’t let appearances be deceiving. Although weight-loss coach Charles D’Angelo doesn’t look like someone who can relate to the pains of being obese; at age 16, he weighed 360 pounds. “I could have been the king of excuses,” he says. “My family was plagued by obesity and its related illnesses.” Instead, he made the decision to change, losing 160 pounds in two years—and keeping it off.
Are you an apple or a pear? These typical body shapes say something about your cardiovascular risk.
Remember the 1970s conversation pit, all sofa and no chairs? Well, in the newest spin on ‘social-able’ furniture arrangements, there’s nary a sofa to be found. Rather, designers are placing four beautiful chairs around a conversation-starting cocktail table or ottoman, like the revolving lazy Susan-style, black-lacquer tray shown here, which can be removed for serving or dinner on your lap. The advantages of this decidedly unconventional living room setup? In addition to the fact that you won’t see it in every house you visit, it really does encourage relaxed conversation, while eliminating a lot of the placement problems often encountered with the traditional sofa and two chairs. You simply float this one in the middle of the room and voila: instant, unexpected chic. So lose the sofa, and pull up a chair!

But your past doesn’t have to be your future, according to Charles D’Angelo. The weight loss coach, who has come full-circle himself—losing 160 pounds more than a decade ago—is in the business of motivating people to change the script in their heads to achieve healthy lifestyle goals. “The key is to drop the excuses and tap into that God-given spark that everyone has to fulfill their dreams,” D’Angelo says.

My oldest child is 11 years old. And I believe that if you do something every day for 11 years, experience alone should make one proficient. However, parenting is more of an art than a science. What works one day may not work the next, and there are many factors that contribute to the ebb and flow of family functioning.

Everything from body temperature to weight to energy are metabolically modulated, so an imbalance in thyroid function can cause a range of unpleasant symptoms.
Physical inactivity literally is killing America. Data indicates that 11 percent of children ages 6 to 11, and 14 percent of those ages 11 to 16, are obese. In addition, more than one-half of adults don’t meet recommended levels of activity, and half of them have no regular physical activity. Sedentary lifestyles lead to increased health risks and higher health care costs. Since this habit of inactivity begins early in life, the promotion of physical activity among children is imperative for their health and for the future of our nation.
