Focusing on Weight Loss, Health and Nutrition from the Wasteland of Post-Katrina New Orleans, home of some of the best, unhealthiest food on the planet.

Is it any wonder young girls have distorted body images? Who are their role models? According to the latest issue of Newsweek, it's the "prostitots," Britney and Lindsay and Paris. Bleccchh! (Caution: showing age now!)
And then add Beyonce to that trio. Wait, you say. Beyonce is a nice clean-cut girl.
She's also having to back-pedal as she gets raked over the coals by nutritionists for the diet she followed to lose 20 pounds in 10 days for the filming of "Dream Girls."
It's the infamous Maple Syrup Diet--maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Drink it before meals, you ask? Nope, that's it. That's the meals. Three times a day. Sugar and diuretics.
Understandably, the nutrition community has had a cow over this dearth of nutrition, leading Beyonce to issue statements that she would never recommend it to anyone else and that she gained the weight back as soon as she began eating again. Meanwhile, people are stampeding to the stores for syrup worldwide.
