  • From Women’s Health contributor and yoga expert Kathryn Budig—the essential, authoritative guide to yoga, for beginners and beyond.

    Approximately 16 millions Americans now practice yoga on a regular basis. Devotees can’t rave enough about this ancient art of meditation, breathing, and physical postures that calms the mind and slims the body.

    Unlike fitness fads, yoga is worth the hype. The postures stretch and tone lean muscle mass and sculpt a strong and slender physique—burning up to 400 calories in a 90-minute session. But yoga does something even better. It’s proven to reduce the biggest cause of weight gain—stress—which 43% of Americans say makes them overeat.

  • Health Notes talks with renowned cardiologist, Dr. William Davis about how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.

    Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.

    After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic. Health Notes Airs Mondays 6:30-7:30PM
