One of the top health concerns today is weight gain and obesity. A leading causes of death today is obesity. Study after study has been conducted to try and find the reason for obesity. Studies have shown that even though children engage in physical exercises, they still gain weight and in many cases become obese. For older folks, lack of exercise, has been found as one of the reasons for weight gain in addition to other factors. In all of these studies, obesity and weight gain can be traced to the foods we eat. We have increased our food intake and we eat a higher percentage of sugar than we used to ingest about fifty years ago. The amount of fat that we eat has also increased. These two factors coupled with lack of exercise are the leading causes of weight gain. The solution to these problems is to change our eating habits. One way of preventing weight gain is by starting a low carbohydrate diet. A low carb diet allows you to control the amount of calories you ingest. The solution to these problems lies in the ability to change our eating habits. One way of controlling unnecessary weight gain is the eating low carb foods. This way, the amount of calories in the food is closely controlled and helps in making one healthier.

Carole Lombard was among the most commercially successfuly and admired film personalities in Hollywood in the 1930s. Carole Lombard includes a biography which brings to life this vivacious, unconventional woman, who showed fortitude in the face of personal hardships such as the automobile accident that scarred her face at age eighteen. The bibliography that follows is comprehensive in scope, the most ambitious to date; it contains citations for anonymous and attributed magazine articles, books, and films. Full text reprints of a revealing interview for Motion Picture magazine and her only published article provide interesting views of Lombard. The never before published Civil Aeronautics Board investigative report of the airplane crash in which she died, fifteen previously unpublished photographs, and detailed examination of many articles, biographies, and film history books that deal with some aspect of her life and/or career make this bio-bibliography an excellent resource.
