By night-time 'f pets round as a "butter-ball." (That's my dear father's expression.) 1 just cannot hoH in, and I try. I am not fat in any other spot. The Answer begins with 3 questions: Do you slouch at your desk chair when you are in school, or when you watch TV at home? How may soft drinks do you consume during the day? Are you sure you are not overweight? Overweight can settle in one spot — tummy, hips, or waist, for instance. In the tummy region a bulge seems to increase during waking hours from poor silting or standing posture. And from overages of food and liquid. Six to eignt glasses of liquid — 8-ounce' glasses — are sufficient. That quantity includes three glasses of milk and four glasses of water Obviously the allowance for pops is scant. A smart r;ir! uses it for fruit and vegetable juices. Now for posture. You must learn to "hold in"; to stand and sit erect — held in Here's an exercise thai teaches how: Lie back down on floor and stretch tall; press spine io floor and contract, abdomen. Place palms of hands across center abdomen so that middle fingers touch; rest elbows on floor. Inhale deeply for 10 slow counts, holding abdominal muscles taut and The Telegraph will send bridal questionnaires on request.

I,AMB-r hope you can help our family with an important .decision. Our daughter, who is 13. has been wearing glasses for many years. The lenses arc quite thick. She wants the soft, contact lenses so badly she is willing to save half of her babysitting money. If she wears the contact lenses will her eyes get so accustomed to them and their strength that she will not be able to go back wearing ordinary glasses? 1 understand you cannot wear the contacts all the time, so will she also need other glasses? DEAR READER — To obtain the soft contact lenses she'll have to be examined and fitted by an eye specialist. Although there arc differences in professional opinions on I he use of contact lenses, the general picture reported thus far on the soft contact lenses is very bright. They have been worn for long periods of times as a sort of bandage over the front of the eye when it has been irritated. They do not cause the irritation and problems "* : ,B :'fl 'B <!

Lamb noticed with hard contact lenses. Studies have been done with the lenses being worn for hours and hours without irritating the eyes, but f would prefer that you rely on the eye dnctor who examines your daughter for adivce on this point. I only want to reassure you that it's possible tha.t ?he might be able to wear them for long periods of time without the kind of difficulty normally attributed to hard contact, lenses. If she is able to wear them a sufficient length of time each day, it's poss"ile sh3 might not need other glares. Some test subjects hate worn them day and nigh;, withour. experiencing difficulty. DEAR DR. LAMB-Our son has gone on a haelth food diet, eating mostly mixed nuts, seeds, wheat germ and lots of milk. Every time he gets up from a sitting position, his bones in his legs and hips pop like they were breaking. Could this be from too much calcium? Please give us your opinion of this diet?. DEAR READER — No, the joint popping that you describe is not too uncommon in young growing people and it can be caused by a number of factors, but not from too much calcium in the diet. As far as the "health diet" that you're describing, I take a relatively dim view of it. Food fads of this type often result In diets deficient in essential nutrients. If he insists on following this diet, he should take one of the daily vitamin tablets that can be obtained at any supermarket and take one each day just to cover him for a possible vitamin deficiency. A person also needs a variety of different tyoes of protein and he will be getting a variety from the milk, which is a good source of protein, and the seeds, particularly if the seeds happen to be soybean seeds. I >vould still be happier .if he were getting more protein from animal sources. His diet probably wouldn't forbid him using egg whiites, for example.
