  • How to Break a Food Habit

    What foods do you crave?If you're like Ryan, who, on today's show told Anderson about eating the same two meals for the past seven years of his life, or you can't can stop snacking while in front of the television, Behavior Expert Dr. Mike Dow has some tips for breaking a food habit and making healthier food choices...

    1. Baby Steps for Big Results

    The first thing you want to ask yourself when trying to change a food habit is: what is one small thing I can change in my routine? The key in changing a food ritual is to take baby steps, never go cold turkey. Research shows that when you deprive yourself of something, it may have short-term positive effects, but not long-term results. If you tell yourself you're never going to have chocolate chip cookies again, it increases the likely you will binge on that food at a later time.


    2. Create Healthier Rituals

    The human brain loves rituals - daily actions that become habit. However, if your ritual is unhealthy it can be disadvantageous. The key is to take baby

  • The Most Controversial Parenting Methods

    Anderson welcomes actress Mayim Bialik, who opens up about attachment parenting. In addition to this particular style of raising children, see what other parenting methods are creating controversy.

    How do you raise your kids?

    1. Attachment Parenting

    Attachment parenting is also called responsive parenting. Parents are responsive in every way to the needs of their child, and the child responds by forming a closer bond.

    2. Uninvolved Parenting

    Uninvolved parenting is close to complete neglect; these parents are neither demanding nor responsive, and they can even be rejecting in the most extreme situations, according to psychology professor Nancy Darling.

    Uninvolved parents don't set rules for children, or offer emotional support or otherwise get involved in their children's lives.

    Such parenting involves sometimes a complete surrender of discipline, in which case children have extreme freedom to govern themselves.

    3. Permissive Parenting

    Also known as indulgent parenting style, permissive

    Travel Security and Identity Theft Scams
    Guest blogger: Robert Siciliano

    Traveling for business or pleasure is hectic, unnerving, not at all glamorous and often draining. We often say we need a vacation after a vacation. And when traveling, the last thing you need is to be ripped off. Things to consider:

    Hotel Rooms

    Hotel rooms are not secure. Just last week I entered a hotel room with somebody else's stuff laid out on the dresser and on the bed. It's happened to me dozens of times. Sometimes the clerk assigns the same room to two people, or the keys work in multiple rooms. Never ever leave anything of value in your room.
