It's November, and this is the time where many Americans begin to gain those extra holiday pounds. According to studies, most of these extra pounds tend to stay for the rest of the year. Over time, this can really add up, even at only 2 pounds a year. Next thing you know, you're 10 years older, and 20 pounds heavier with no idea how it "crept up" on you. It's not your age, it's not your metabolism and it's not your genetics. You can absolutely stop the cycle this year by following the four simple rules you are about to read.

I judge the downfall of American society by various benchmarks, events that I believe represent a marked new low in our failure spiral. And it took no real talent to notice the latest ignoble notch: Inhalable caffeine. That's right, inhalable caffeine. For when drinking a cup of coffee is just too much work. The product, known as AeroShot, came on the market last month. You can tell inhalable caffeine is new because it doesn't even have its own Wikipedia page yet. It's packaged in a thumb-sized tube that goes for $2.99, and to get an instant jolt, all one needs do is lift it to the mouth for a quick blow.

As a registered dietitian with the Washington County Health Department, Tammy Thornton has a simple rule at home for her children: No cola allowed. She also knows that sometimes kids don't always follow the rules when they're out of Mom's sight.  “I don't serve soda in my house, but, you know, when they're with friends, they have soda,” she said. “A lot of calories, especially for young people, come from what they drink.”  Statistics show that she's right when it comes to children and sweetened drinks.

It's a lesson many learned early in life: Drink your milk to build strong, healthy bones. Moms and dads recognize the importance of milk, which is rich in calcium and other nutrients, in their growing kids' diet. Unfortunately, that message often is lost later in life.    Milk is one of the best-recognized foods for building strong bones. It is a food that has the greatest number of nutrients, calcium, phosphorous, vitamin D and protein, packaged together to promote bone health.    The U.S. Department of Agriculture publishes a “Healthy Eating Index” to measure the overall quality of Americans' diets.

I have no problem with arming America, as outlined by the NRA last week. If you want to put guns in schools, churches and manned missions to Mars, I am all for it. Only one condition: If we require universal gun ownership, then we need to outlaw beer. Guns, fine. Beer, fine. Guns and beer together, what are you, nuts? Walking into a liquor store with a gun strapped to your belt just strikes me as a problem waiting to happen. The clerk is going to need some immediate clarification: Are you here to rob me or do you just want to enjoy a few pulls off a bottle of Schnapps while you pluck nuts off a hickory tree?

Wendy Crossland said she's always made it clear to her three kids that energy drinks were off-limits, and most importantly, never allowed in the house.

Crossland, 38, blames a caffeine energy drink for contributing to the death of her oldest daughter, Anais Fournier, just days before Christmas.
