3. Skipping breakfast

Raises your risk: 30 to 50 percent

How: Not having that a.m. meal increases levels of an appetite-stimulating hormone called gherlin, making you hungrier and likely to eat more -- which can lead to weight gain.

The fix: Have high-fiber cereal with low-fat milk and one-half cup of fruit in the morning, recommends Karen A. Chalmers, MS, RD, an advanced-practice diabetes specialist at the Joslin Diabetes Center at Harvard University. One study of people with prediabetes found that eating high-fiber cereals made their cells respond better to insulin. Consuming dairy products may also cut the risk for insulin resistance by 72 percent.

Hi folks! I am very excited to share with you a wonderful guide that helped me quit smoking for good - I have 9 months of smoke-free now, with the help of Allen Hudson's Quit Smoking Strategy. With Allen's guidance I managed to overcome my dependency, to fight the withdrawal symptoms and any temptations. I am so happy, my family and friends are so proud of me and most importantly, I feel healthy and full of energy! All thanks to Allen and his Quit Smoking Strategy: quitsmokingstrategy.com

Good story. I watch a lot of TV, so I bought a treadmill and an elliptical put them in front of the TV. I exercise everyday for about 1-1/2 hours. To me exercise is very boring, TV makes the time go faster.
