Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: If you're obsessed by your scale, give it away! Muscle weighs more than fat.

The goal is to drop the excess fat for your height and build. Scales are not a bad thing. They can be a big help in the process of getting healthy, but if you're basing your results solely on what those numbers are, you can see how misleading that can be.

Editor´s Note from Milan Perry: If we reflect upon our grandparents and how they endured illnesses it always brings me back to natural, safe home remedies. There is so much in our home that can be used as a life saver in a pinch. Without hesitation we should look to theses simple solutions in our home unless it is a lifesaving issue. Everything has it place!
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Get inspired. The salad is the basic, simple, and gorgeous summer staple. Enjoy!
