Left to Right: WireImage, WireImage, FilmMagic, WireImage Last night's Emmys brought out the silliness (our obsession with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is still in full swing, Will Ferrell and his sons were just too cute, Merritt Weaver's hilarious G2G), the sadness (Edie Falco on Jimmy G, Jane Lynch on Cory Monteith), and the oh-so-exciting upsets (Jeff Daniels?! The Voice?!).
And as much as we love gabbing about the above, let's talk eye candy. TV's best didn't let a little red carpet dress code keep them from showing off some serious skin.
Our body crushes of the night? Claire Danes, Rose Byrne, Taylor Schilling and Sofia Vergara. More on them and the moves we're maybe doing right now at our desks to get their looks...after the jump.

Claire Danes brought some sexy back (no, we will never get tired of that joke) in a nude Armani Prive. To get the Homeland winner's glow, Claire's makeup artist, Matin Maulawizada, used Leonor Greyl's Huile Secret de Beaute. But we all know

Chris GentileUnprocessed and uncooked organic produce has earned status as the gold standard in health food, but when it comes to vegetables, less (cooking time) isn't always more. In fact, several varieties actually pack a bigger nutritional punch once they've been heated up above 115 degrees.
Compared to their raw counterparts, cooked tomatoes deliver more lycopene, an antioxidant that can lower the risk of prostate cancer, heart disease, and lung cancer. Likewise, heated carrots deliver a bigger dose of beta-carotene, a source of vitamin A. Spinach, mushrooms, asparagus, and cabbage also supply maximum antioxidants and nutrients when cooked, says Bonnie Taub-Dix, RD, author of Read It Before You Eat It and nutrition expert in New York. To lock in peak nutritional value, Taub-Dix recommends steaming vegetables to avoid overcooking, and adding flavor with fresh herbs and spices, rather than drowning them in rich sauces or fat-loaded batters. That means tempura is out andRead More »from Is Raw Food Really Better for You?

Courtesy of Q by EquinoxGeraint Thomas is the double Olympic gold medal-winning cyclist who, in the summer of 2013, astonished the world with his performance at the 100th Tour de France. He didn't win, but in an event that's renowned as the ultimate test of endurance (and suffering), the 27-year-old Welshman pushed his body-broken bones and all-to new extremes.
On the first day of the Tour, he crashed. Thomas was stiff and sore but got up, re-mounted, and finished the stage. The following day he was in such pain that he had to be helped onto his bike, and as such, he struggled to keep up at the back of the peloton all day. After stage two, when a scan revealed a broken bone in his pelvis, he asked his team doctor if he could continue in the race. The doctor replied that if he was careful, and the injury was managed, he could, but he would have to use pain as his guide.
Like many hell-bent endurance athletes, Thomas listened to his doctor, but ignored the pain.Read More »from 5 Indoor Cycling Tips from a Double-Gold Medalist

Back by popular demand is the assay I wrote about the "oppositional conversational style." This post really seems to strike a chord with people.
Which surprised, me at first, because when I identified OCS, I thought I was the only person who had ever noticed it. Turns out that many people have noticed it! From both sides of the OCS-dominated conversation.
A person with oppositional conversational style is a person who, in conversation, disagrees with and corrects whatever you say. He or she may do this in a friendly way, or a belligerent way, but this person frames remarks in opposition to whatever you venture.
I noticed this for the first time in a conversation with a guy a few months ago. We were talking about social media, and before long, I realized that whatever I'd say, he'd disagree with me. If I said, "X is important," he'd say, "No, actually, Y is important." For two hours. And I could tell that if I'd said, "Y is important," he would've argued for X.

Check Your NeckWho know how when you go to the doctor one of the first things he or she does is put their hands under your chin and around the surface of your neck? Though you may have thought the doctor was looking for sign of a common cold or flu, in actuality swollen glands may lead to something much more complicated. Your doctor may be looking for symptoms of thyroid cancer.Read More »from Check Your Neck: The Self-Exam More Women Should Be Doing

Thyroid cancer is a quiet cancer, in that we do not hear about it often in the media. Though it can strike anyone at any age, three in four of those newly diagnosed are women. And for reasons that are still unknown, the incidence of thyroid cancer in women is rising faster than any other cancer in the United States. In 2013 a record of approximately 60,220 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
Thyroid cancer jumped onto my radar when I had not one or two, but three friends who were diagnosed with this cancer while pregnant or just after delivering

Ever since I was 6 years old and was moved from the girls' reading table to instead read with two boys (both of whom were mainly covered in snot), I discovered the power of girl cliques. Jealous that I was now in the top reading group, they promptly stopped speaking to me. I felt the icy cold shoulder as I was left by myself at break time and over lunch. I remember wondering, "What have I done wrong?" Hasn't it always been this way? When I watched Grease at 8 years old, I may not have quite understood what was going on between Rizzo and Kenickie, but I was aware of just how COOL the pink ladies were and how Sandy longed to belong. Personally, I think girl cliques should be abolished! Yet, I'm still facing them myself, most recently at the school gates. Being a working mom, I can't help but feel slightly excluded by the moms who stay at home and are able to meet daily for coffee. They don't mean to be aloof, but sometimes they come across that way. I wonder, is the best way to deal withRead More »from She Doesn't Even Go Here: The 7 Most Memorable Girl Cliques in Movie History

I've spent years handpicking a posse of Spinning instructors, yoga teachers, and cross-trainers I can trust. They're smart; they're certified. They know the ins and outs of asanas, ab crunches, and aerobic conditioning. But how much stock should I put in the health information and advice some of them dole out during sessions? You know, like what I should be eating or how certain exercises might benefit my brain.
Organizations that train and certify trainers warn their members not to cross the line that separates fitness tips from health advice. "The line is thin, but trainers still have to respect it," says Grace DeSimone, editor of the American College of Sports Medicine's Resources for the Group Exercise Instructor. "For example, it's OK to talk about the basics of good nutrition. But it is absolutely not OK to tell someone to avoid a specific food group, like dairy, unless the trainer also happens to be a registered dietitian." Likewise, if something hurts while
What is your pee trying to tell you?You know that you've had your share of water/beer/coffee by the frequency in which you need to use the bathroom, but what else can pee tell you about your health and habits? A lot, it turns out. We asked R. Mark Ellerkmann, M.D., director for the Center of Urogynecology at the Weinberg Center for Women's Health and Medicine in Baltimore, MD, for some of the specific health and lifestyle issues your urine's odor, color, and frequency can indicate.
1. You're Pregnant.
The reason you have to pee on a stick after your first missed period is that shortly after conception (when a fertilized egg implants into the lining of the uterus), the fetus begins to secrete the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, which is what is detected by home pregnancy tests, Dr. Ellerkmann says. Some women also notice a strong, pungent odor early on, even before they're aware they're pregnant.

1. Diet pitfall: You order takeout so often, the delivery guy knows you by name
Solution: Failing to plan can easily lead to diet downfalls: unhealthy menu selections or the lack of nutritious options. Prioritize your diet and make meal-planning part of your routine, not a chore, says Manuel Villacorta, RD, and author of Eating Free. "Schedule a date with your supermarket once a week, followed by a date with your kitchen, where you can pre-make a lot of healthy foods," he says. Boil rice and quinoa, cook beans, whip up a soup or stew, grill chicken, and roast veggies, so you will have basics ready to pack for lunch or warm up for dinner.
If you know you're going to dine out, read the menu and pick a diet-friendly option before you go. Watch out for terms like "braised"
