Body Blog: What is Brown Fat?

Brown fat – everybody’s talking about it. You’ve probably seen it floating around in the headlines, because it’s been a major part of a lot of the latest health research. But what exactly is it?

We Love You, Lauren Zizes

As I sat down to revel in their renditions of Michael Jackson and Katy Perry’s greatest hits I was glad to see that the writers had kept Lauren Zizes around even after sectionals. And even more so, I was glad to see that she had a pretty large part in this past Tuesday’s episode.

We’ve All Been There: Sweat Pant Weight Gain

Somehow you ended up with four 9am classes this semester. WTF? You can barely get up for your kickboxing class at noon on Fridays, and someone expects you to make it to class (ready to learn!?) by 8:50am the rest of the week?

The Jessica Simpson Epidemic

After years of slipping through the media cracks, Jessica Simpson is more famous now than ever. And why? The girl <gasp!> gained weight. I mean, think about it: what has J. Simps really been doing with herself, career-wise? Not a whole lot. Instead, the poor girl has been a victim of heartbreak, failed endeavors, and more media scrutiny than any person deserves.

I Remember: My Journey through Fatness, Skinniness, and Healthiness

People can be monsters, and I don’t mean in the Lady Gaga sense. They can be downright vicious to others without even realizing the irreversible damage they cause in the process. Though I keep it hidden away in a corner of my mind, I have a lot of memories of this kind of often subtle ruthlessness. I spent most of my young life as “the fat girl.” This is what I remember.

Body Blog: Stay Healthy… Even During Finals!

Pulling all-nighters, running on coffee and 5-hour-energy shots, and making the library your new permanent residence? College is already hard enough! Then, at the end of every semester, we have to deal with EXAMS.

World’s Largest Woman: The Worst Goal of All Time

With all the fuss lately surrounding healthy body images and the perfect abs, it seems a bit surprising that Donna Simpson, a 42 year old New Jersey woman has actually made it her goal t be the world's fattest woman. She's even said it would be "a fantasy" to reach 1,000 pounds!

National Eating Disorders Awareness Week: Do I? Am I?

Ladies, in honor of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, it's time to ask ourselves, "Do I?" and "Am I?" It's about looking at our own lives, and figuring out what's healthy and what's not.

Down With Coed Bathrooms!

There’s an unspoken rule that makes it allowable for you see your best friend's (or guy friend’s) bare ass in certain situations: a dare, a (drunken) hookup, a music festival, or on amateur night at a strip bar. But in the shower? That might be going a little too far, and one Green Mountain College student agrees.

The Weekly Ten: Why You’re Fat

This week I've been inspired by ThisIsWhyYou'reFat.com... or my own personal struggle with winter weight. Between the Christmas cookies, Starbucks peppermint mochas and, oh yeah, lifting my drinking ban, these have all caused me to pack on the weight over the past three months. I could not be more annoyed with the term "winter weight," or having to rationalize that I'm not getting fat, just fluffy.

The Fat Camp Chronicles

All my life, I've been heavy. When I was younger I was ridiculed and bullied constantly about my weight problem, so I was always fairly depressed. Sure, I ate a lot (...of pastries), but my eating never warranted the amount of weight I would actually gain.

Why You Can’t Stop Eating…Literally

I have an obsession with cupcakes that is so intense, sometimes, I think that it borders on addiction. If someone offers me an adorable little sugary cake of pure bliss, there's just no way I can refuse. And, whenever I have a craving for one, I won't be able to stop thinking about it until I satisfy my inner voice screaming, "feed me cupcake!"

The Best Thing My Mother Ever Gave Me

My mom does a lot of really annoying things: She calls me really early in the morning, or really late at night. To talk about reality TV shows. Whenever I'm on the phone with her, she hangs up abruptly to get another call...without saying goodbye. She pees with the door open in the powder room on the main floor of our house.

Just Say No to Hydroxycut!

If you are considering taking diet pills, more specifically, Hydroxycut, it's time to get rid of those thoughts once and for all. The FDA recently linked their products to severe liver damage and death (yes, death!), so the makers pulled 14 of its products from shelves.

Yahoo Question of the Week: Why Are My Jeans Tight?

What would we do without the internet? Seriously, we use it to shop, to study, to communicate, to be entertained…and to get answers to the questions we just need answered, but aren’t quite sure how to ask. To someone’s face. Who can laugh at us. And then tell everyone about it. Because we know deep down that the question was dumb, but we still just needed to know.

Fit Finds: You Bet Your Fat On It

A little friendly competition never hurt anyone...And when it comes to shaping up, sometimes it helps to have the motivation of others spurring you on. For me, the most dedicated I have ever been to regular gym-going and eating right was when I either had a goal in mind (running a half-marathon last summer) or when I had others keeping me accountable.
