Does shopping for a bathing suit really have to induce dread? Not if you go about it with the right attitude.
We’ve got six tips to make bathing suit shopping not only enjoyable, but even empowering.
1. Start With the Right Attitude
If you begin your shopping trip with a pep talk, a game plan, and a commitment to have a great time, you’ll be more likely to wind up with a suit you love than if you go in with a negative attitude.
- Pick a shopping day when you’re feeling good and have plenty of time and energy.
- Focus on your favorite body parts. Do you have great hips and legs and a pretty bust line? Then who cares if you have a little extra around the middle? Don’t let your minor flaws hog the attention. Chances are, no one notices them as much as you do.
Celebrate all the good things your bathing suit reveals. Then, cover up, camouflage, or ignore the bits and pieces you’re not thrilled with.

Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), improve lipid metabolism and contribute to the prevention of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. However, EPA in the diet is easily oxidized at room temperature and several types of oxidized EPA (OEPA) derivatives are generated. To compare the efficiencies of OEPAs on lipid metabolism with EPA, human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line (HepG2) was treated with EPA or OEPAs and their effects on lipid metabolism related genes were studied. OEPAs more potently suppressed the expression of sterol-responsive element-binding protein (SREBP)-1c, a major transcription factor that activates the expression of lipogenic genes, and its downstream target genes than did EPA under conditions of lipid synthesis enhanced by T0901317, a synthetic liver X receptor (LXR) agonist. Furthermore, PGC-1beta, a coactivator of both LXRalpha and SREBP-1, was markedly down-regulated by OEPAs compared with EPA.

According to statistics and surveys cosmetic treatment is more popular than ever—but what happens when the treatment that you believe will make you look and feel a million dollars goes wrong?
Mary Catchpole is one of the thousands of brides across the world who decides to treat themselves to cosmetic treatment in the run-up to their wedding. Mary, 41 years old, decided to give fillers a try to boost the appearance of her skin and roll back the years.
It was her understanding that fillers were a safe, quick and painless alternative to cosmetic surgery. So, when Mary saw a great deal at a local clinic, she decided to have the treatment. Unfortunately, her dream wedding preparations turned into a nightmare and she was left with swelling and pain, not to mention blurred vision, bruising, insomnia, nerve damage and depression.
The complications were caused by an injection which was supposed to tackle crow’s feet and lines around the eye. Unf

When the Senate voted Tuesday to make Marilyn Tavenner the official administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, it was the first time the world’s greatest deliberative body had approved someone to head the huge health agency since 2004.
That’s right, you have to go way back to the Bush administration to find Dr. Mark McClellan, the last person to be officially put in the post.
Tavenner, who has been running the agency in an acting capacity since late 2011, has a big job. CMS oversees Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Plan, which together serve north of 100 million Americans and have a combined budget larger than the Defense Department’s.
CMS is also playing a major role in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Salt Levels In Processed & Restaurant Foods Still Dangerously High
Patient / Public:
The dangerously high levels of salt in processed food and restaurant food remain the same despite many efforts from several public and private health agencies to change them, according to new research performed by Northwestern Medicine and the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
The finding, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, established that although overall sodium levels of processed foods decreased from 2005 to 2011, the decrease was just 3.5%. Restaurants did not perform well at all, documenting that sodium levels actually rose by 2.6% over the same time frame.
The results suggest that food manufacturers have not made much progress between 2005 and 2011 in decreasing sodium levels in restaurant and packaged foods. The authors suggest that now significant action is required by the Food and Drug Administration in order to decrease sodium content of restaurant and packaged foods. Read more…

It was just two years ago that Ryder Robinson debuted a shorter, spikier cut.
And now it looks like Kate Hudsons growing boy is taking his coif to the next level with a fun rainbow dye job.
On Saturday, the 9-year-old showed off his new do while shopping in Malibu with his grandparents Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

But surprisingly, the out there hairstyle doesnt really fit Ryders more laid-back personality according to his mom.

The eBoost Natural Energy supplement line is packed with kits, shots and various flavors. The selling point of the formula is that it helps boost energy and improve mood with premium ingredients that don’t cause that caffeine crash. We love when supplement companies like eBoost Natural Energy make claims that simply do not make sense and, moreover, claims that are directly negated by the ingredient list.
Glucuronolactone is a naturally produced in the liver and it can be found in certain plants. The majority of companies that use this ingredient claim it can detox the body by inhibiting toxin production and improve focus and concentration. We were unable to find a peer-reviewed study into the effects of Glucuronolactone.
Green tea leaf extract is listed twice on the ingredient list. The first time it is standardized for 110 mg of caffeine and the second time it is standardized for EGCG. Caffeine is a stimulant – the stimulant –that causes the crash associated with many energy supplements. If eB
