Every day, nine women are diagnosed with breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and many local stores are showing their support.

When it comes to dieting, the conventional wisdom holds that losing weight gradually is more sustainable in the long run than losing weight quickly. But new results from a long-term clinical trial show that this is just another dieting myth.
