To supply locavores with food grown closer to home, urban farms are springing up in back yards and abandoned lots all across the country.

Ava Cowan's Chocolate French toast is a favorite among bodybuilding and figure competitors, but you do not have to be a bodybuilder to enjoy this French toast recipe.

Both South Beach and Atkins diets are the creation of medical doctors. The father of The South Beach Diet is cardiologist Arthur Agatston, MD, director of the Mount Sinai Cardiac Prevention Center in Miami Beach, Fl.

Some weight loss programs exclude fruits and veggies, which leaves the skeleton of a monotonous food regimen, and an even more difficult time dieting. On the other hand, there are low glycemic fruits and veggies worth their weight on your plate, and should not go to waste.

These low glycemic foods offer an abundance of healthy benefits.
