WANT YOUR HONEY TO LOSE WEIGHT?


Then bag the chocolates and gift her some TLC: A study
published in the American Journal of Health Promotion
found almost half of participants said their partner regularly
encouraged (read: nagged) them to shed some pounds,
which then triggered episodes of overeating and quickie
weight-loss schemes such as skipping meals. Suggesting
that a partner should lose weight implies that he or she is
unattractive, says Marla E. Eisenberg, ScD, MPH, associate
professor at the University of Minnesota and lead researcher
on the study. What drove the subjects to extreme measures
wasnt so much being told they needed to lose; it was how
they were told. Rather than saying, Youll look better if you
drop a few, emphasize the idea of getting healthy together,
Eisenberg suggests. Below are more gentle reminders.

Derick Despite working in healthcare, Derick
didnt pay much attention to his own health until a close
friend died of a heart attack suddenly. The next day,
he signed up for WW At Work. I thought I could eat
whatever I wanted when I was obese, but it took a toll on
my body. I feel better now than I did in my 30s.
PROPELLING FORCE The weekly meetings changed his
outlook. He earned the respect of his peersand himself.

Melanie As a stage actress constantly cast as


the funny sidekick, Melanie felt sheer triumph when she
landed a role as the ingenue. That feeling vanished when
she couldnt squeeze into her costumes. So Melanie joined
the Program and made healthy changes immediately. She
did, however, have a few nonnegotiables: I ate cupcakes
and drank beerand I still reached my goal.

Ed Diagnosed with high blood pressure, high


cholesterol and an irregular heartbeat, Ed decided to
take his doctors advice: This single dad to three boys cut
out fatty foods and sweets. After disappointing results, I
woke up one Saturday morning and said, This is it. And
I joined WW. Ed focused on eating sensible portions
and started walkingthen runningoutside. Now, he
plans on competing in a half-Ironman this spring.
NEW HORIZONS Ed sets goals that are physically
challenging. I know I can work towards them.

Kristen For ve years straight, Kristen half-


heartedly joined WW every Januaryand quit by
February. But this time around, she fully committedand,
not surprisingly, saw progress. The numbers on the scale
went down, and my condence soared. I used to be shy,
but now Im much more outgoing.

the heave-hoand make this
the year you manage every mouthful.

Of all the battles you wage daily, the war with hunger may
be the most challenging when youre trying to lose weight, since
the concept of hunger can be a murky one. In fact, a growing body
of science reveals two types that you need to contend with: one
thats triggered by physical need, and another thats set o by the
reward center of the brain. You probably dont give much thought
to which type of hunger youre experiencingand, if you do, its
likely not until after youve nished that bag of cheese twists.
However, given that youre likely to make 200-plus decisions
about what and when to eat on any given day, the hunger-busting
techniques that follow can help you make better choices. PHOTOGRAPHY: YAY IMAGES.

SHOULD I GO FOR
A BALL OF STRING
INSTEAD OF THAT FISH?
Maybe. In new research from California Polytechnic State
University in San Luis Obispo, subjects ate fewer calories from
a bufet after exercising moderately for 60 minutes or more,
versus resting for the same amount of time. Exercise may
reduce brain activity in regions that regulate food intake,
decreasing motivation to eat, says lead author Todd
Hagobian, PhD. But more research is needed, since
other studies show that eating after working
out may stimulate hunger.

1 SNIFF IT OUT
The smell of cooked cauliower is a common
complaint. One major culprit: The veggie can

curds discolor. So snif a head deeply when
selecting at the supermarket; if theres an of-

Better yet, break of a tiny oret and taste it.
The avor should be nutty and mild with a
pleasing crumbly crunch.

The secret to great-tasting c-ower: The fresher Orange

veggie unwashed (moisture speeds decay) in

its cooking time by using a fork or the tip of
a knife. Other good ideas: Roast, zap in the
microwave or steam cauliower instead of

TIP Cauliower orets cook more quickly than
their stems, so cut a shallow X in the stem end
to ensure even cooking.
