    I found the liposuction story very strange. Anyone who REGAINS weight will have more fat. I've known several people who have had the procedure and they were thrilled with the results. Like the article pointed out, they still had thinner thighs. - 5/10/2011   1:59:51 AM
    I loved the liposuction article! Although the more I think of different variables, I still have many questions. However, my overall, initial reaction was, "Oh well, I no longer have to wish I could afford it," LOL! - 5/9/2011   5:26:11 PM

    In the Liposuction article, it was not mentioned how the women ate/exercised post liposuction procedure. Liposuction is not supposed to be for weight loss, but to remove fat from targeted areas areas that don't respond to diet and exercise. If these women eat cheeseburgers and fries all the time and don't exercise regularly, of course they are going to gain weight back. That really is an important factor in a study like this... - 5/9/2011   8:08:02 AM

    The liposuction article is fascinating!! I always felt that something like liposuction had to be too good to be true -- and the idea that the fat would come back in the LEAST healthy place is a good example of why. I feel so badly for women that feel like they need to have these procedures to feel good, especially when they do it at the price of their health. - 5/9/2011   7:03:40 AM
    I think I will stick to exercising - 5/8/2011   9:48:43 PM

    I found the liposuction story VERY interesting...especially that half the woman still had the procedure after knowing the results of the study. I also enjoyed the gluten-free grains article. I haven't even heard of some of these grains, but I have a couple of friends with celiacs disease. I've been wanted to have a dinner party but have been hesitant because I don't want to make them sick. This gives me some new cooking ideas. Thanks! - 5/8/2011   3:43:46 PM

    i found the article on liposuction very interesting. The fat never leaves but we can shrink those fat cells through diet and exercise - 5/8/2011   8:09:25 AM
