How to Make SMART Health Decisions in a HURRY!

Menu Matters
A Georgia restaurant has served up some controversy with its latest menu creation, “The Black and Bleu,” as the restaurant reportedly promoted the new item by saying: “Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with an R and ends with an A.”

The Doctors weigh in.

Fast or Slow?

The Doctors confirm if your everyday habits are best done with haste or patience.

• Eating: Scarf it down or graze throughout the day?

• Sex: Is a longer session of lovemaking really better?
• Bandages: Should you rip a bandage off swiftly or slowly?
• Number two: Why you shouldn’t rush to flush.
• Jumping in a cold pool: Ease in or take the plunge?

Some have commented that this inappropriately makes light of victims of domestic violence. Did the restaurant take it too far? Tell us what you think.

Locker Room Etiquette
Ladies: Have you ever removed your undergarments without taking off your clothes to avoid disrobing in front of others? A research paper from the University of Alberta found women are highly self-conscious in the gym locker room, which may be why some women steer clear of the gym altogether.

Eat Healthy on the Go
Do you skip meals because you don’t have the time? Nutritionist Christine Avanti shares tips for fast meals so you don’t skip the nourishment you need during the day.

“Fanny Pack” Fat Removal
Bathing suit season is just around the corner and Kristina turned to The Doctors in a hurry to lose the part of her backside that’s bothered her for years.

“I’ve been overweight all my life and recently lost 70 pounds,” Kristina says. “I feel amazing, but I still have a problem area, which I call my fanny pack.”

The “fanny pack” refers to a pad of fat on the lower back, just above the buttocks. Cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee removes Kristina’s fanny pack using Tickle Lipo.

Reading Prescription Inserts

While there are ways to take care of your health in a hurry, be sure to take your time when reading the package inserts that come with your medications. E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork and Chief Medical Officer of Pfizer, Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, explain the importance of understanding vital drug information.
