    I love how SparkPeople and I are checking out the same things! There's always a few gems that I haven't read yet though! Thanks for another great round-up! - 8/4/2010   6:56:47 PM
    Carrot Cake ANYTHING always piques my interest. Looooove carrot cake, it's my favorite! Definitely going to try that recipe out to satisfy my sweet tooth. - 8/3/2010   3:57:18 PM

    I particularly enjoyed Brunch Tips, Middle Age Benefits, Recipe rehab and the Magazine is not a Health Guide. Plus I plan to play with Lima beans. :-)
    Great selection!

    The article named 9 Hidden Benefits of Middle Age was interesting, especially that I have noticed a few mentioned to be true for me. Thanks! - 8/2/2010   6:10:50 PM

    I have to watch my sodium so the article See Ya, Sodium!(HG's Salt Slashed Product Round up was very helpful. - 8/2/2010   3:28:30 PM

    I enjoyed the artical about how going online can help with weight loss. The benefits that I get from SparkPeople are amazing. It is much easier making lifestyle changes with this program. I feel like I am connected to a community of like minded people who are also working on living healthier lifestyles, and that in turn, helps me stay on track with my goals of living healthier. - 8/2/2010   12:49:47 PM

    I loved the "9 Hidden Benefits of Middle Age!"
    I needed this reminder:D - 8/2/2010   11:09:40 AM
    I really enjoyed the "In Your Face Fitness"! My mother-in-law is always passing her Self and Women's Fitness magazines to me, I appreciate some of the other titles she gives to me, but I've tried to pass on the "health" ones. I have the same impression as the author of the article...a soap for cellulite, blueberries will magically shrink my belly ect. It all seems so absurd, and then to have a photo-shopped celebrity on the least show their cellulite. :) - 8/2/2010   10:16:42 AM

    Invest in your BONE BANK was of most interest to me since I'm 60. Thankfully as a child and teen I drank lots of milk growing up on a farm, so I made STRONG bones back when I could, but even though my scans now are good, I want to KEEP all the bone I have, so love these articles. I just read that taking calcium supplements didn't work, so NOW it is about EATING the right food to get my calcium. - 8/2/2010   9:42:31 AM

    The 9 hidden benefits of middle age. I had already noticed them. Youth is so over rated. I feel more comfortable in my own skin now than I ever did in my youth. - 8/2/2010   8:54:19 AM

    I also got a warning from McAfee on the Bone Bank blog - 8/1/2010   7:56:43 PM

    I didn't have any problems clicking on the bone bank one either.

    I already take the calcium supplements and the vitamin D, on the advice of my oncologist. I have osteopenia, and bone mets from breast cancer. And also some of my cancer treatments deplete my body of calcium. - 8/1/2010   5:58:57 PM

    Egrammy - I am able to click on that article with no issues, so I'm not able to replicate any security warnings for it. - 8/1/2010   5:51:29 PM

    My favorite is "See Ya, Sodium! (HG's Salt-Slashed Product Roundup!)". I have heart failure and fluid retention is a big problem, so I try to keep my sodium intake as low as possible. If I go above 1500 I can count on problems, and that's not an easy number to stay under since there is so much hidden sodium in foods. There was a lot of good information and I discovered some new low/no sodium products.
