How To Lose 40 Pounds
This story begins in the least likely place: McDonald's. I feel a bit ashamed writing this blog because I love McDonald's, especially their breakfast sandwiches. I teach healthy brain habits; I work with athletes: I'm not supposed to eat fast food. I stopped eating Micky D's breakfast sammies because they (yes, always plural) were the guilty pleasure I enjoyed way too often. Three years ago I weighed 259 pounds; today I weighed 218 and I will reach my fighting weight of 205 sometime next year. But recently McDonald's introduced the chicken sausage McMuffin with egg. I go once a week. It drops 110 calories per sandwich. T...

Book Review: Why Can’t I Stop?
What if you had a pint of ice cream for dinner last night and spent three hours on social media? You probably wouldn’t hear any judgment at work the next day. In fact, your colleagues might nod and smile because they’ve been there. But what if you drank a fifth of vodka and gambled away your mortgage? No one’s laughing now. Instead they’re judging you. “How could you do such a thing?” they would ask. “Why didn’t you control yourself?” Any number of behaviors, whether socially acceptable — like eating and being on the internet — or not quite as acceptable, can turn into an addiction.

8 Things People Who Quit Drinking Want You To Know
Alcohol is infamous for serving as a social lubricant or as a way to have a good time with others. But for some individuals, drinking loses its appeal or becomes a negative influence in their life -- and that can be a catalyst for kicking it altogether. Ditching alcohol can be a tough subject, that's why it's important to understand a person's rationale behind the decision in the first place. The bottom line? It's different for everyone. We asked our social communities to share a few of their own experiences with quitting drinking, whether they did it briefly, just stopped recently or are recovering from somethin...

Good — and bad — news about today’s teens
Follow me at @drClaire The results are in from the 2015 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). There is a lot to celebrate — but there are also some trends that parents, and everyone who spends time with or works with teens, should know about. The YRBS is a nationwide survey of high school students conducted every two years. More than 15,000 students participated in the 2015 survey. The point of the survey is to monitor behaviors that can put the health and safety of teens at risk. It’s a confidential survey that allows teens to admit to things they might not want to admit to their parents and teachers. The more w...

Most Ontario adults support government regulation over cannabis production and sale
(Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) Most Ontario adults support government-controlled options for producing and selling cannabis, according to new survey results from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. While public opinion continues to swing toward liberalizing recreational cannabis use control, Ontarians favour keeping cannabis production in the hands of either government agencies or regulated private businesses, and having regulated outlets for the sale of cannabis.

Delivering Alcohol IBA: Broadening the base from health to non-health contexts
Conclusion There is sufficient evidence to support current optimism about the potential for alcohol IBA to be delivered in a range of health and non-health settings beyond primary care and hospital departments. However, future attempts to broaden the base of IBA delivery need to address organisational, professional and context- specific challenges that impede implementation and, in particular, the sustainability of initiatives over the longer term. Evaluation and monitoring should be built in to new initiatives to increase the chances of appropriate allocation and use of resources and to promote a culture of learning from ...

Quitting Smoking? Expect a Lot of Failure Before You Succeed
Quitting smoking is so hard that most smokers kick themselves for even starting. Not everyone who smokes enjoys it, as evident by the nearly 7 out of 10 smokers who've said they want to quit completely. While many smokers have switched to e-cigarettes, those people shouldn't be considered nonsmokers. They're still slaves to nicotine. It's just delivered in a less flammable way. But quitting -- as in getting out of nicotine addiction once and for all -- takes way more than a little willpower. A study recently appearing in BMJ Open suggests the number of times it takes to quit smoking for good is much higher that experts...

While getting free lobster, Sriracha vanilla yogurt and crab artichoke ravioli at work may boost collaboration among employees, it also generates an unwanted byproduct -- plenty of food waste.  In Silicon Valley, where booming tech companies provide ample amounts of gratis grub, having hordes of perfectly edible leftovers has become the norm.

Pain expert: Judge the opioid treatment, not the patient
With medications that carry significant risks, such as opioids, appropriate prescribing practices are critical to patient safety.

Alford, MD, associate professor of medicine at the Boston University School of Medicine and director of the Safe and Competent Opioid Prescribing Education (SCOPE of Pain) program. “Acute pain is a symptom, and it’s life-sustaining—and you need to feel acute pain in order to survive,” Dr. Alford...

The 5 Most Dangerous Myths About Narcissism (Part 1)
Since publishing my book, Rethinking Narcissism, I've spent a lot of time educating the public through interviews and talks. And I've come to realize that a great many people still believe far too many outdated and dangerous ideas about narcissism. I want to set the record straight about some of the more damaging ones. So here are the first three of what, in my experience, are the top five myths that create the most confusion and grief. 1. The Myth: All narcissists are outgoing and charismatic.
