Bikram, right?? I have friends that SWEAR by it- they go 2 or 3 times a week. I cannot stand to be hot and sweaty, so I neither do hot yoga nor exercise... which is NOT a good thing. I gotta get busy on that or I won't be setting myself up for old age too successfully. Groupon sometimes runs deals on Bikram if there are studios near you, so that might be a good way to go about your first class- at a discount. Then you won't be out a ton of money if you find you hate it. Just a thought
I went a few times with a friend and didn't really enjoy it. The class was 90 minutes and the minimal benefit of being slightly more flexible in the heat didn't outweigh feeling faint and having to prepare ahead by eating very far in advance and bring clothes to wear on the way home.Also, I could do maybe 5 of the 26 poses and they are all done twice. I feel yoga in a normal temperature is equally beneficial but I have a friend that loves it.
I've tried it and it's got it's pros and cons. I suggest only going if you have already been active for a while. It's a lot of heat to put your body through so I also suggest the first few times that you go that you go for a shorter class and help your body buildup to the intensity. I enjoyed a milder heated class that was still heated but not at 90 degrees. Try different instructors and studios and you will probably find one you like.

Has anyone tried to eat according to the Eat Right 4 Your Type book or diet?I started reading this book a few days ago and am amazed at how much sense it makes. I was just wondering if anyone had tried to eat that way and what results they had if they did?

Have you tried the Lay's "Do us a flavor" chips?If so, which flavor do you like the best? Sriraccha, Cheesy Garlic Bread or the Chicken & Waffles flavor? I personally like the Chicken & Waffles....but that's because that's the only one I could get my hands on.

Has anyone tried apple cider vinegar for health?Have been reading about health benefits. Have to be careful because it is acidic, but can eat on salad, etc. Has anyone tried this and gotten good results? I am especially interested in blood sugar reduction as my morning blood sugar tends to run...
