Another awesome theme park: Dickens World!

dickens12.jpgdickens32.jpgdickens23.jpg

Not only is there going to be a Harry Potter theme park, but there is already a Dickens World! Just opened in May 2007, it’s located in Kent, England. It’s like the Theme Park Gods are making my dreams come true. I wonder if there is a character actor walking around as the Artful Dodger!!??

Now if only there were a Louis Vuitton world… well actually you can visit the Louis Vuitton Museum in Asnieres, France, 25 minutes outside of Paris. Or you can just go to the Champs Elysees LV store, aka “The Mothership.”

Five Essential Tips to Losing Weight

Eat less and exercise more. It’s that simple. Trendy diets are a waste of time- your body needs carbs to function properly. Losing weight is hard work and takes time and energy, but these five tips will help you on your way:

1. EAT BREAKFAST. Numerous studies have shown that thinner people eat breakfast. Skipping meals only slows down your metabolism and this makes you overeat at your next meal.

2. Drink water– lots of it. If you feel hungry, drink a glass of water; often we mistake hunger for thirst. If you are still hungry, then eat. Drink 8 glasses of water throughout the day to keep your body functioning at its best.

3. Keep a food journal for one week. Write down every single thing that you eat. Most people underestimate how much they actually eat.

4. Weigh yourself once a day in the morning and record it on www.fitday.com. This is a great website; you can enter in your exercise for the day, say 30 minutes on the treadmill at 3mph, and it will tell you how many calories you burned. You can also enter exactly what you ate, and it will tell you how many calories, fats, protein, and carbs you ate.

5. Incorporate exercise into your daily life. Exercise should be fun- not feel like a chore. A little bit here and there adds up. Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator. In summer, go for a walk, rollerblade, or swim. In winter try skiing, try a workout video, or sign up for a dance class in your area.

Stay away from diet pills or herbal supplements of any kind (unless prescribed by a doctor). They are not approved by the FDA, and have been shown to cause a wide range of health problems, including heart attacks and can even kill you. Don’t go for the quick fix. The only tried and true way to lose weight and keep it off is by diet and exercise.

Good luck!
