My Friend Abby Normal – Learning to Walk Before You Can Zumba

Do you feel Abby Normal?

It seems I'm doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over. Maybe I'm being a bit melodramatic. I do usually learn from my mistakes. But sometimes I try something, look back to analyze it, and realize it's really not that different from the other things I've tried. “Hello Abby.

A Letter From Santa About Starting the Atkins Diet

Thank you very much for your thoughtful letter. After having checked my list (twice, even!), I see that you have been mostly good this year, despite that incident where you incited that riot.

Blessed Are The Children: Explaining Your Low-Carb Diet to a Child

I have recently come to the conclusion that my goddaughter, Brittany, is the devil. At the tender age of eight, it is already apparent to me that she is going to be one of those beautiful, rail-thin-yet-muscular "beach babes" that say things like, "I wish I could gain weight as easily as you do. I just eat, and I eat, and I eat, and I can never get those nice, childbearing hips like you have! It seems like the only place I ever do gain any weight is in my breasts!"
