    for American women currently is 39 inches? In 1950 it was 27.5 inches. Marilyn Monroe's waist was 22 inches- so there was only a gap of about 5 inches between celebrity and average women. Today celebrities are still around 22 inches in the waist sometimes, most times photo...

    I'm sick right now, and have lost a lot of

    weight. My sleeping patterns are attractions. My heart rate is constantly above where it should be. I occasionally have moments where breathing is difficult. I don't know how to solve it but I'm trying to figure it out.

    Vegetarian is a good way to keep healthy.

    There are too much toxin in meat such as hormones and antibiotics. Meat are potentially dangerous for mad cow disease, chicken flu, pig flu. Dead animal will revenge and hurt person who eat it's meat as wolves revenge person who kill wolves. be a vegetarian please.

    Just remember, eating healthy is more important

    than exercising a lot. I've done very well with my eating in the past week and I already feel better about myself. The easiest thing to do is cut out fast food. It's okay to have a cheat day, but try your best not to.
