Women Crave For Food More Than Men

By Margarita Nahapetyan According to a new research on the brain, women unconsciously find it much harder to suppress their cravings for food and resist their favorite meals than men, and are more likely to give in to temptation. Brain scans of hungry volunteers have been performed and scientists were able to compare the brain ability of men and women to check if gender was the reason that influenced the ability to resist hunger. 23 h

Something from the Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America

Excerpted from Something from the Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America By Laura Shapiro In the end, it took both a cook and a feminist to liberate the American kitchen. By liberation I don't mean freedom from cooking, though the women's movement is often construed in those terms. I mean that cooking itself has been freed, or at least notably loosened, from the grip of the food industry and the constraints of gender. There was nothing inevitable about these developm

The Best Diet To Keep Your Weight Off

By Margarita Nahapetyan Each person is different. No matter how thoroughly you search, you will not find a universal diet that will be suitable for everyone when it comes to losing weight.

This way you will end up with up and down weight loss and gain, which is not good for your health. The best way
