For all the perfectionists out there . . .

I believe this with all my heart.

If you never fail, you aren't living.

New research study

If you struggle with binge eating disorder and live in the Boston area, this study might be of interest. You've got to be between 18 and 50 years old and a non-smoker, at least for the last six months. For more details, see the study posting.

I'm a fan of taking part in research studies-IF they offer you something useful.

Just when you think you've seen it all . . .

comes this appalling cookbook, Hungry Girl, which touts itself as offering 200 recipes under 200 calories each.

The title says it all, to my mind: Hungry girl. Is that what we're aiming for here? To make sure girls stay hungry? Not to mention malnourished, obsessed, and generally distracted from more important matters?

Just think of all that women could achieve--women, not girls--if they weren't hungry all the time, or thinking about food, or worrying about what they're eating or not eating.
