The Fattiest Foods in America!

YIKES!  Some of these meals really pack an unhealthy punch!  ~Erin

Sure, if you stuff enough cold, hard cash down your gullet, your belly will probably stick out like an overfed oil exec. Same with fat.

Whether you like yours with extra pickles or without onions, smothered in melted cheese or topped with bacon, you'll be excited to know May is National Hamburger Month.

National Hamburger Month isn't exactly a sanctioned event and greeted with the same fervor as, say, Memorial Day, but it does have roots. White Castle, which celebrates its 90th anniversary this month, reportedly created the gimmick in 1992.

Is Salt Actually Good for You?

A new development in the battle against salt is leading some scientists to question whether a low-sodium diet is actually healthy for you.

In a study published Wednesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association, Belgian researches "estimated sodium intake of nearly 3,700 participants, with an average age of about 40, by measuring sodium in their urine at the beginning and end of the study."

7 Shocking Eating Addictions From TLC’s ‘My Strange Addiction’ [VIDEOS]

Earlier this year, the TV show 'My Strange Addiction' (Wednesdays on TLC) featured a woman who has one of the strangest addictions we have ever seen.
