That house that looked like intestines

I can't find anywhere in the show synopsis the PICTURES of what that "house" (or hotel or whatever it was) looked like that resembled an intestine, that you talked about in the beginning of the show (8/1/14). I googled it and couldn't find it either. Can anyone provide me with a link to it and info about it?  I want to show someone and don't think they'll believe me unless they see it! Thanks, Melissa.

Beginner to 17 Day Diet

Hi all!  I just started the 17 Day Diet on July 28.  It hasn't been too difficult so far.  I have not weighed since the morning of my first day.  I am afraid that I will be disappointed in my progress if I weigh too soon and too often.  I want to lose at least 10 lbs, and maybe even 15.  I have tried two of the recipes from the cookbook.  I really enjoyed both....

What If You Have Done All of It And Still have insomnia?

In today's show synopsis: It says: "About 50 percent of people who suffer from insomnia attribute it to stress,” Dr. Lewis-Hall explains. “Insomnia can indicate an underlying illness, like depression or anxiety. That’s why it’s really important to talk to your doctor about your insomnia, about your stressors, and any other symptom that you might be experiencing.” Dr. Lewis-Hall explains that if you’re suffering from insomnia, you need to become your own sleep detective...

Driving and Running (aka the Runs)

The story of the 90 year old woman having to make a decision between the bathroom and the emergency room after striking a jogger does in fact spark legal interest using the 'call of nature' versus 'the 911 call'.  While a judge in some courtroom will eventually decide the case, it was mentioned that the woman should have her license revoked. Under normal conditions, the police officer handling the case carries a form with him...

BMI vs % Body Fat

"There are 2 ways to measure health and fitness:  BMI and % body fat." (taken from first link below) Height and weight determine BMI.  However this isn't always accurate because 2 different people could weight the same but they could be in different size clothes, because of the amount of lean body mass on each of them (one having more than other). % body fat determines what % of fat is on your body.  This...

Using Sunblock Vs Sunscreen

From the show the other day, thank you for pointing out that sunblock and sunsceen are different and to use sunBLOCK, not the sun SCREEN (if you have the option). Sunblock has organic and inorganic ingredients that sit on the skin and block out the sun, and is thicker. Sunscreen has chemicals that absorb into the skin and block the sun that way, and can cause skin irritation. Melissa.

Bunion Sugery

I just watched a taped piece where a consultation with a foot doctor gave the impression that bunion surgery is not a very big deal.  I realize every case is different, and there are several types of bunion surgeries, but the taped consultation seemed to minimize how tramatic this can be.   I am glad that one of the doctors of the show added the fact that bunion surgery is serious! I hope the patient...

What cause ADHD

I would LOVE for you to have giving an answer even if it was just an idea to the question that was raised about why have we seen so many more cases. I would LOVE to have the doctors look into GMO foods and synthetically made vitamins and the fact that there may be a correlation between  the rise in ADHD and gut related problems. I'm not sure most Americans know that they are taking  synthetically...

Energy and Calorie

A lot of talk about ow-calorie diet these days for losing weight.  Well, this particular trend is not for everyone since everyone isn't a desk-jocky (who sits on a chair all day).  For those who are not desk-jockys, they need high-calorie meals to fill their needs: energy. (I got this information below from my old Chemistry Textbook) Energy is defined as the capacity to do work (W = F x D).  All forms of energy...
