#5) The Svelte Gourmet gives sweets a skinny makeover
Often, one of the first things to get axed when you're trying to lose weight is dessert. Most typical desserts are loaded with sugar, calories and fat. A modest piece of cheesecake comes in around 500 calories at the least! That's enough to sabotage any attempt at cutting calories and fat. Don't despair! Quick, easy, and impressive enough for a dinner party, these svelte desserts will satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt.

#4) Laurel wants to help you break your diet soda addiction
There was a time when I drank diet sodas all the time. My friends and I were happy we had something to drink besides water that wouldn't make us gain weight (supposedly).

#2) Belly up to the bar for some great ab-toning advice
Many people don't realize how much of a difference abdominal fitness equipment can help them get the abs they want. Don't be one of those people. Many people simply don't know that a couple simple abdominal muscle exercises aren't going to give you the toned abs your looking for.

I suggest that if your serious about toning your abs you set up a routine and stay consistent. Also do not just do sit-ups and crunches...

In the morning, drink water, tea, or coffee to keep hydrated, not bloated!
