Speaking of resolutions, how about the seemingly universal goal to drop a few pounds and/or exercise more? How's that going for you? I've stopped making it a yearly resolution and am resigned to the fact that it is instead a daily, year-round battle!
But I've got good news in my battle: I can combat my 5 pm craving with a brisk 15 minute walk. The New York Times recently reported: "As far as weight-loss strategies go, it is not the most glamorous, but studies have found that a brisk walk around the block can significantly dampen cravings, whether the urge for junk food or the desire to light up a cigarette."
