Saving calories at the bar may not be a good thing.

Researchers gave college students vodka drinks with regular soda and with diet soda, and the diet soda group got more intoxicated, faster – about 20% more intoxicated than those who mixed regular soda with liquor, according to research published Tuesday in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research. Sugar in your mixed drink actually slows down the effects of alcohol, researchers say.

Chia seeds and 'Power Man' salads: ranking the Super Bowl diets

Finally, we’re down to two teams for Super Bowl XLVII, to be held February 3 in New Orleans. It’s the Baltimore Ravens up against the San Francisco 49ers. It’s the Harbaugh Bowl: Ravens coach John Harbaugh versus his brother, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.
 
Do you know what I want to know about Harbaugh v Harbaugh? Nothing. I’ve already heard enough. I also have more info than I can handle on Ravens superstar linebacker Ray Lewis playing his last NFL game.
 
I do have some questions about both Super Bowl-bound teams, though. Namely, what are they eating? Who has the most outrageous diet? I did a little research so I could pick my Super Bowl diet winner.

You can trust a skinny chef! How the pros stay slim

You don’t need me, or any chef in the world, to tell you the best ways to keep from gaining weight. They involve breakfast, balanced meals and exercise. Instead, I’ve become fascinated with the less obvious ways that chefs and other people who are constantly around food keep from packing on pounds.

The secret of the 'heaving bowl' – how jockeys make weight
October 23rd, 2012

Share this on:

From the moment the ancient Greeks held the first Olympics 2,700 years ago, our picture perfect image of elite sportsmen has revolved around the oiled, ripped, macho body.

But not all our leading sports stars fit the stereotypical bill of chest-thumping demigods.

Some, such as jockeys, instead go to extreme lengths to stunt their growth - sometimes down to the size of a pre-pubescent child.

In an industry where just a few extra pounds can rule you out of a multi-million dollar race, jockeys are put under enormous pressure to meet miniature weight requirements.

Juiciest trends in juicing

So, you think you’re a serious juicer? (I’m referring to fruit and vegetable juicing, and not the steroid kind that gets you suspended for 50 games in Major League Baseball, obviously.) Have you taken a juice vacation? Because that’s the new standard for real juicers.

Hotels from New York State’s Catskills to Southern California now offer long and short "juice vacations." A good pre-Labor Day example for anyone who’s been going too heavy on the burgers recently: the one-day Bikini Jumpstart Juice Package at Santa Monica’s Shore Hotel.

Real juicers, here are more trends to stay on top of:

5@5 - How to lose 40 pounds without giving up delicious food
July 25th, 2012
05:00 PM ET
Share this on:

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Editor's Note: Peter Kaminsky is the author of Culinary Intelligence: The Art Of Eating Healthy ( And Really Well)

Six years ago if you had wanted to pick a prime target for obesity it would have been me. And I was co-operating by staying right in the cross hairs. As a food critic and cookbook writer my job entailed a lot of eating. In ten years I went from 172 to 205. The doctor told me I had two choices: lose weight or get ready to meet my Maker.

Nothing against God, but I wasn’t ready for a rendezvous yet. I had to change my diet, but I could not and would not give up delicious food. Guess what? By eating the right stuff and avoiding the wrong stuff, I took off 40 pounds and kept them off.

It’s doable and it’s delicious. It just requires some not very difficult steps, so simple that although people keep telling us what they are we keep looking for magic diets. Forget about magic and use your noggin. Common sense will do the trick. My problem wasn’t unique, nearly 40 percent of Americans have the same issue and 100 percent of them can take the same simple actions I did.
