I am shocked that this article giving health advice got published. It is supposed to be correcting myths, not creating them. The article claims to "separate the science from the silliness." Unfortunately, one needs to be a little bit better at researching in order to make such an arrogant statement that sort of looks down on the readers, as if they don't know anything about health. One of the reasons that HFCS is possibly more harmful to health is due to the problems with mercury, which was not addressed by the author at all. Here's just one very recent reference (from the Washington Post) entitled "Study Finds High-Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Mercury" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/01/26/AR2009012601831.html) I could offer other insights about this article, but this article is just one example about why one should not just trust information from one source. Do your own research, folks. -- J. Waldron

I enjoy reading the articles in Eating Well and I really appreciate the listing of nutrients for each recipe; however, I notice that potassium is never listed when I know that some of the recipes have potassium because of the ingredients. My husband has to calculate his potassium in his foods as well as the ingredients that you list. I'm sure there are more people who would appreciate having the potassium listed also. Another thing that concerns me is I am gluten free and I am also sure that there are many people out there who are also gluten free and would like to see some gluten free recipes in each issue. Thank you, Marliss Newberry

Please get to the point you are trying to make. Why do I have to read 3 pages before the message you promise appears. You are losing trust with the reader. As a performer myself, it's boring and makes me change the channel. I'm tired of stay tune we will be right back with.....

I was excited to see a 7 day meal plan. Then I got to looking and within the seven days there are two recipes for Shrimp dishes. I am allergic to shrimp as are many people. Shrimp is a common allergen. When you have recipes in a meal plan like this that are common allergens or commonly unliked food (I hate all seafood) it would be nice to have an alternate recipe for a substitute of that meal.

The Thai shrimp dish would be okay if I could use chicken instead. Is that a possibility? If so, it would be nice to have that in the notes at the bottom of the recipe (Grilled chicken can be substituted for the shrimp)

Also, it would be good to be able to select a daily calorie count, then select items to add to your daily menu and include found recipes and have the site calculate if you need to add or remove calories and by the time you add and subtract here an there you would have a menu of food you like, within your dietary (diabetic) and caloric restrictions. I find recipes all over the web and would love to have an option to plug them into a menu plan so I can do my shopping for the week and know I am making food that is good, good for me and helpful to my weight loss goals.

Thank you
