To train for athletic competition, you have to exercise hard enough to make your muscles burn and hurt. But pain can also be a sign that you've injured yourself. In order to tell the difference, you must listen carefully to your body.All training for competition -- to become stronger and faster and improve endurance -- involves (1) stressing your muscles, (2) allowing enough time for them to recover and then (3) stressing them again. When you exercise vigorously, your muscles become damaged; they will feel sore anywhere from eight to 24 hours afterward.

Q. Several years ago my husband was suffering from psoriasis on his arms and legs. Medicine from the dermatologist was not very helpful. I bought some flaxseed oil capsules in the health food store. My husband was skeptical, but by the time he finished the first bottle, we could see improvement. He has continued with flaxseed oil and is still free of scabs. I don't know why it works, but others might want to know about it. A. Thanks for sharing your husband's experience. This oil, similar to fish oil, is rich in essential fatty acids, especially alpha linolenic and linoleic.

Before Aiesha Eddins got pregnant, she didn't give much thought to her diet. "I ate whatever," said the 27-year-old Owings Mills woman. "We ordered take-out. " But when she weighed in at 220 pounds during her initial prenatal visit, she quickly earned a spot at the Johns Hopkins Hospital's Nutrition in Pregnancy Clinic, launched in December to counsel and treat obese women. The clinic has around a dozen patients but already is expanding. An estimated one in five pregnant women are obese, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an epidemic according to some doctors who have begun to buck conventional ideas about "eating for two. " They now recommend healthy diets, little or no weight gain and even bariatric surgery for obese women before they get pregnant.

The adult obesity rate inched up to 24.5 percent from 23.7 percent in 2003, a new report says. More than a quarter of adults in 10 states are obese, and seven of those 10 states are in the Southeast. Colorado had the lowest adult obesity rate, at 16.8 percent. Maryland ranked 29th with rate of 21.7 percent. Co-written by former Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening, the report was the second such annual report released by the Trust for America's Health, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, nonpartisan health advocacy organization.

Women are less able to suppress hunger Faced with their favorite foods, women are less able than men to suppress their hunger, a discovery that may help explain the higher obesity rate for females, a new study suggests. Gene-Jack Wang of Brookhaven National Laboratory and his colleagues were trying to figure out why some people overeat and gain weight while others don't. They performed brain scans on 13 women and 10 men who had fasted overnight to determine how their brains responded to the sight of their favorite foods.

As a young man watches his slim fiancee approvingly from a distance, an old man shatters his reverie. "Better look now," he warns. "After the first kid, she's gonna blow up like a balloon."Thus did the 1989 movie "True Love" immortalize the stereotype that after marriage, and especially after having children, only women, not men, gain weight. But a new study suggests that exactly the opposite may be true: Marriage, pure and simple, causes men to put on weight.When researchers at Cornell University analyzed weight and marriage data from 3,025 men and women, they found that both married men and women tend to be heavier than their single counterparts.
