This week the Wall Street Journal's health blog celebrated its five year anniversary. And not with cake. With the Michael Phelps diet. Or, rather, with the memories of it. In a post looking back at its five years in existence, the bloggers recalled some of their biggest hits. Near the top of the list was one about the Baltimore swimmer's famously fattening power meals. "With over 475 comments and counting," the Wall Street Journal writers said, "it's still one of the most trafficked posts 3 ½ years after it was written.

Nutritionists from the University of Maryland Medical System regularly contribute a guest post to the Sun's Picture of Health blog (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth). The latest post is from dietetic intern Janelle Schleicher. Emotional eating is when we use food as a way to cope with our feelings or if we eat in response to a feeling that we have, as opposed to in response to hunger. But not all emotional eating is created equal. It is something that each person encounters on a daily basis, and it is not always a negative thing.

Paula Deen, who has made a very good living touting rich, Southern foods, has disclosed that she has type 2 Diabetes, and folks may wonder whether there's a connection. Deen, author of a series of popular cookbooks and host of television cooking shows, has never been shy about cooking foods that are bacon- or cream-filled. In fact, "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible" was listed among the worst of 2011 by the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine, the Baltimore Sun's Picture of Health blog noted.

Nutritionists from the University of Maryland Medical System regularly contribute a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth). The latest post is from clinical nutritionist Christine Dobmeier. More and more establishments in the Baltimore area now offer outdoor seating, so you can dine al fresco and take in the balmy weather along with some good people-watching. Some of the more unusual outdoor dining spots I've spotted around town include the upstairs deck and street-level seating at Speakeasy and the misted outdoor tables at Mama's on the Half Shell, both in Canton.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth). This week, Christine Dobmeier offers nutrition lifestyle tips. The second leg of the Triple Crown, the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes, takes place this Saturday. With Memorial Day right around the corner, it's also the "home stretch" as you get yourself healthy for the summer season. When running the race to good health, look to the "Triple Crown" of nutrition tips: Include more vegetables and fruits, be mindful of portion sizes and become more active.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth). This week, Christine Dobmeier, RD CSR LDN, weighs in on the 1812 diet. Baltimore is embarking on the bicentennial celebration of the War of 1812. With the focus on history with the upcoming events around town, it's interesting to think about how people in 1812 lived their everyday lives, including what they ate. Were their diets similar to ours or drastically different?

The Center for the Science in the Public Interest, which has done more good for the health of Americans than its legion of detractors has released its annual Xtreme Eating Awards, the most egregious items on chain menus. Here's what they say about the Cold Stone Creamery PB&C Shake : Even people accustomed to 1,500-calorie burgers wouldn't expect 2,000-calorie shakes. A 24-oz. “Gotta Have It” size shake of peanut butter, chocolate ice cream and milk has a day's calories (2,010)

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, Faith Hicks weighs in on Super Bowl food. Imagine a typical Super Bowl party spread: fried chicken wings, meatballs, sour cream and cream cheese dips. This translates into a feast of meat and lots of fat, particularly saturated fat. It will probably be your dinner on gameday, but hardly a "Strive for Five" or "My Plate" meal.
