Leftovers

Surprise! Your kids didn't finish their burgers.

Freeze! Actually, you're not at all surprised, since this is their usual MO -- just as it's yours to finish their food for them, particularly when you're at a restaurant and you've paid good money for their meals. The fix is to let experience, and not optimism, determine their portion sizes: If they've never finished a burger on their own, then they should split one. If you still have leftovers, toss them. "It's false economy to think you're saving money by cleaning their plates," says Schwartz. "All you're gaining are extra calories you don't want and probably won't enjoy."

we actually grow shorter and smaller in general, and we live longer because as science and technology advance we know figure out what's good and what's bad for our bodies. People used to use LEAD to whiten their complexions, for example...!!

jenisdog_crazy, c'mon, don't you think life evolves at some level? even if we've only been around for 3 thousand years, our bodies have changed drastically during that time. we live longer, and grow taller than our ancestors.
