You can enjoy your favorite foods, including goodies, and still lose weight with exercise and diet tips in Herald-Guide Weight Watch.

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control, today’s women consume 335 more calories per day than they did in 1970. Men chow down on 168 more calories.

You can burn off YOUR extras by wetting a line at your favorite fishing spot or firing off a long letter to a friend.

Fishing for the burns 286 calories per hour - writing takes off 70 calories per hour. - Heather R. Breaux
