char answered question what is the best website for medical information?

I think the best site is WebMD. I like how the information is laid out and I find it is written in  way that is easy to understand, You don't have to worry about too much medical jargon. WebMD is also really good because it provides detailed iformation about both prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs and many herbs used in supplements.

Other great sites are the Mayo Clinic and Drugs.com, which are very good for prescription drugs.  If you're looking for information about herbs, you can also check out HerbMD. Links-Herbs sites by the Herb Research Foundation is also good because it has a list of sites that contain herb information.

Essentially, no matter the site you find, just make sure it provides unbiased information.

tara answered question Is drinking coffee helping with my weight loss?

It may help you a little bit depending on when you drink it and what you do after you drink it.  Essentailly, as you may or may not know, there are two theories about caffeine and how it may help with weight loss.

The first is that it may cause appetite suppression. Some researchers believe that caffeine may decrease your desre to eat for a short period of time.

The second is that it can help you burn more calories. Research has shown that caffeine may stimulate thermogenesis, which is one way in which the body generates heat and energy from digesting food. It also tends to work at it's best as a fat burner when it is combined with physical activity.

That said, there is no clinical evidence that shows consuming caffeine or coffee over the long-term leads to significant weight loss.

If you already drink coffee and you like it, go ahead and keep drinking it but I don't think it's actually going to help you lose weight, especially if you've been drinking it for years and you're asking this question hahaha.  Plus, if you are going to try to get the most out of coffee, be sure to drink it black (adding cream and sugar isn't going to help with your desire to burn calories and fat) and follow it up with some sort of cardio exercise.
