“We’ve had one, yes. But what about second breakfast?” – Pippin
Any diet that encourages me to eat more waffles sounds good in my book.
A new study out of Yale found that a key to losing weight could be eating TWO breakfasts every day: A small one early, then a bigger one a little later.
They say having two breakfasts kick starts your metabolism . . . it stops you from binging on food later in the day . . . it stops you from eating snacks in the morning . . . and it actually helps you lose weight in the long run.
I know that telling you to put down your phone is like telling you to chop off your left arm . . . but you REALLY should do it once in a while.
A new study found that the key to a successful relationship is putting down your phone and doing two things instead: Spending quality time face-to-face . . . and being affectionate.
The researchers say, quote, “No amount of texting can compensate for a lack of either of those factors.”
But here’s the problem. Most of us are tighter with our phones than our partners.
Another survey just found that 53% of people admit that they spend more time on their phone than with their significant other . . . and two-thirds of us get distracted by our phones in the middle of conversations.

It’s a good thing all the big things in your life peak at different times. If they all happened at once, the rest of your life would suck.
A new survey found when the average person has 10 different key milestones in their life. Check ’em out . . .
- Best dating life . . . age 24.
- Best health . . . age 30.
- Most confidence in your body . . . age 31.
- Best sex . . . age 32.
- Finding your “true love” . . . age 32.
- Happiest in your career . . . age 38.
- Happiest overall . . . age 39.
- Most content in your relationship . . . age 40.
- Best salary . . . age 42.
- And most total wealth . . . age 47.
We live in an era where people aren’t just celebrated for looking, acting, and being different . . . everyone’s so hardcore about embracing uniqueness that if you publicly criticize someone, the Internet BERATES you.
And that mentality has made the transition to dating too. A new study found the key to being attractive in dating today is . . . being WEIRD.
The researchers found that people who had their own sense of style, unique personalities, or offbeat careers or hobbies had MORE dating success than people who stuck to more traditional life choices . . . or who tried to hide their quirks.
They say your best move in online dating is to demonstrate your unique personality. And when you actually go out with someone, make sure you don’t hold back or try to act “normal.”
Key to Being Attractive
Just stop. Seriously. Just stop.
Dave Asprey is a, quote, “bio-hacker” who made the news a few years ago when he started promoting his weight loss plan: Drink coffee with BUTTER in it. Of course, he suggested you buy HIS extremely expensive coffee made of special, “toxin-free” beans.
He’s built an entire empire around his “Bulletproof Diet” plan . . . but it feels like NO ONE is a big enough SUCKER to fall for his latest product.
He’s now selling fat-infused BOTTLED WATER . . . that costs about $5 for a 16-ounce bottle. It’s gluten free . . . you know, just like regular, fat-free water!
Asprey’s big belief is that good fats, like coconut oil, are the absolute key to losing weight and feeling healthy. His “FATWater” has about two grams of coconut oil in it, and he says that makes your cells more receptive to water so you’ll rehydrate quicker.
FATWater is only available right now in Los Angeles but Asprey is planning to take it nationwide soon.
