    Most Americans get more than enough protein each day, so eating protein bars as snacks can add unnecessary sugar, fat, and calories to your diet. Instead of overloading on protein bars, you can opt for bean chips that are low in calories and sugar, and packed with fiber that’ll help tide you over...Read More

    1. Deborah Turnage Dr. Oz. I saw the entry for Shingles on how may times you can get them. I must be the exception to the case. I have had one really bad case in my arm that caused me a lot of pain. However I get small cluster on my right hip about the size of a 50 cent piece all of the time. They hurt but not as bad. I have been having shingles outbreaks like this for about 15 years. Sometimes I will go for a couple of months without an outbreak but right this moment I have had five outbreaks consistantly over the past five weeks. One doesn't go away before another one comes. What are your thoughts on this?

    2. Lisa Harkless My family has a history of heart trouble and a variety of different cancers. There its diabetes. I'm 52 and have shown no signs of those things yet. My doctor told me recently that I'm "in good shape for a woman my age." I do have degenerative disc disease, dive, rticulosis and radiculitis. I've had several ruptured disc and a bilateral discectomy and fusion. I've increased my calcium and vitamin D, take a multivitamin, I'm also on meds to help with controlling the pain. I try walk as often as I can. The weather does dictate some of what I can do now. I would love to have a life again. What can I do?
