I'm always hungry. I crave bread and sweets morning, noon and night, even after a big pasta dinner. How can I make it to the next meal without snacking? We could reel off a list of tricks to help you stave off your cravings, but it sounds like you may simply be filling up on the wrong foods. Refined carbohydrates, which cause a blood sugar spike and crash, can actually leave you hungrier than you were before lifting a fork in the first place. Instead of white bread and sugar, choose foods that are high in fiber (vegetables, fruits)

My fiancee and I are active and rarely spend time cooped up inside. The last thing we need is a house full of expensive wedding gifts we'll never use. What sports stores offer wedding registry? Start with TheKnot.com. Register and you'll find everything from hammocks to snowshoes. The outdoor store REI is another good choice. Visit the store or register at REI.com. Rock-climbing gear, kayaks and canoes are just a few of the gifts you can choose from. Another unconventional option you could look into is registering with a charity.
