Question: I am thinking about joining a weight-loss program. All I have to do is buy the food, and the ads say I’ll lose 20 pounds in a month. Do you have any ideas?
Question: I keep hearing about BMI when people talk about weight. What is that? By the way, I’m 5 feet 10 inches tall and I weigh 200 pounds. I have gained 15 pounds in the last 20 years.
Whenever I go out to eat, I'm offered extra-large portions of fries or pop for just a little extra money. It this a good value?
Question: We were part of a community garden this year, and we will have a bumper crop of vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers, onions, corn, and green beans. We also grew watermelon and strawberries. We've been sharing with our friends and family, be we will have plenty left. Do you have any suggestions about how to preserve our produce safely?
We spend a lot of time outside, and the weather has been very hot lately. How do you know if you are dehydrated? How much water should we be drinking?
My children ask for watermelon all the time. Is it nutritious?
Summer is here! With warmer weather and fresh vegetables from local gardens, we can take steps to healthier habits.
I want to try grilling corn on the cob, but I am not sure how to do it. Can you help?
