Juice Cleanses Not for Healthy Weight Loss
MYTH: Juice Cleanses Help You Eliminate Toxins"People think juice cleanses are a good way to detox the body," says McDaniel. "But I remind my clients that you have a built-in detox organ, the liver, and it''s very good at what it does." It probably won''t harm you if you go on a juice cleanse for a day or so, but as a way to lose weight, it''s not such a good idea since it deprives you of proteins and fats and may lead to muscle loss.

Losing Your Hair?
Hair LossWhen you don''t get the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs from your diet, it can cause your hair to fall out. For instance, too little protein in your diet can damage healthy hair, and inhibit your body''s ability to build new hair follicles, which can cause noticeable hair loss after about two to three months of a protein-deficient diet. Very strict weight-loss diets can also cause noticeable hair loss, which commonly occurs about three months after losing 15 pounds or more of body weight.

Nuts & Chocolate = Mental Longevity?
Compounds called plant sterols may help protect against Alzheimer''s, German research reveals.  Mice on a diet enriched with stigmasterol - a plant sterol found in dark chocolate and many tree nuts, had 62% fewer Alzheimer''s-related brain proteins than mice that consumed no stigmasterol.

Step Away from the White Stuff
Loading up on sugar may strain your heart, a study in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests.  People who took in about 20% of their calories from added sugars were 38% more likely to die of heart disease than those who ate less than 10%.

Which Foods Are Giving You Wrinkles?
What you put in your grocery cart can  put you on the fast track to fine lines, says Harold Lancer, M.D., author of the book Younger.  High-glycemic foods (sweets, white starches like rice, pasta, and potatoes) can attack and destroy proteins - including collagen and elastin - that keep the skin plump and young-looking.  Instead, pick whole grains, cucumbers, cherries, asparagus, broccoli, and grapefruit.

Bowtie Pasta with Roasted Fennel and Sausage

  • 4 small fennel bulbs, (white part) cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 C. olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 lb Bowtie (or favorite pasta)
  • 12 oz Italian sausage (spicy, optional) casings removed
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 C dry white wine
  • 8 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped (or, substitute regular tomato)
  • 1/4 C. chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 C. grated Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Toss the fennel with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and spread into an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 30 minutes, until golden brown and tender. 2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente. Drain the pasta and reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid. 3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and onion and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, breaking up the sausage with the back of a spoon, until cooked through. Add the garlic and wine and cook for about 1 minute, until the wine is evaporated. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, pasta, roasted fennel, and Parmesan cheese and toss to combine. If needed, add some of the reserved cooking liquid to create a sauce for the pasta.
