  • How to handle sleep deprivation, according to a Navy SEAL

    Everybody always says the same thing when you announce you’re expecting: “Better catch up on your rest!” Or, “Sleep in while you still can!” Or even worse, “I’m your carefree single friend who stays out until 2 AM and then goes to brunch!” All of them also think they’re sharing a secret, as if they’re frontline soldiers watching new recruits get rotated to the front.

  • A Catholic Nun Perfectly Explains the Hypocrisy of the "Pro-Life" Argument

    A Catholic nun's explanation of the term "pro-life" from 2004 is resurfacing after recent antiabortion events. On PBS's Now With Bill Moyers, Sister Joan Chittister explained why being against abortion doesn't mean you're pro-life. Here's the full quote: "I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't?

  • Got a Craving? Here's What Your Body Actually Wants You to Eat (9 photos)

    Ever find yourself rummaging through the fridge or kitchen cabinets for that delicious, satisfying something--except nothing seems to fill that void? Maybe you know what you're craving, but would actually have to leave the house to go and buy it (who wants to do that?), or your craving is so ambiguous that even browsing the supermarket aisles might leave you stuck. Turns out, there's more to your hankering than just hunger. "Often a food 'search' can arise when you're in need of a break from work or sitting, so by nature you get up and stir around," explains Lisa Cohn, RD, a New York City-based nutritionist. "Other times a quest can be triggered by an emotional or physical reaction that leaves us feeling frozen or out of control, and the act of searching for something to eat gives us a determination to take control." VIDEO: How to Make Banana Blueberry Overnight Oats While there are several other potential reasons for sudden cravings, including a nutrient deficiency, sleep deprivation, and low blood sugar, there are healthy and satisfying snack choices you can make to quench a craving until your next meal.
