We all know the importance of eating right. Modern life, however, has a way of getting in the way and making it easy to grab whatever is at hand. That’s where Fit2Go Healthy Gourmet comes in. As a working parent, the founder was always conscious of making sure the kids ate right. That focus led to the creation of Fit2Go, which provides well-balanced gourmet lunches that taste great while at the same time being good for you. The first week is a promotional $35 with every week after that a mere $40, including tax and tip, making the plan a potential cost savings as well. Just like having a personal chef, ordering is simple. The customer simply lets the company know their favorite and least-favorite foods and Fit2Go takes care of keeping the menu interesting.

As we age, many people notice an increase in fat and skin in their lower lids. This puffy appearance can make a person look tired, with dark circles under the eyes. Surgery to correct this condition, called a blepharoplasty, has undergone some significant changes over the last decade. In the past, the fat pads and any excess skin were removed, resulting in a smoother look. However, use of this procedure frequently created hollowing of the lids. This hollowing could accentuate the dark circles, and often the person appeared even older due to the hollowing. Now we usually reposition the fat and move it down into the area of the dark circle. This is done with an incision made on the inside of the lower lid. Excess skin is sometimes still excised, or tightened, by resurfacing the skin with a laser. This results in a more rejuvenated look to the lid, with a smooth transition from the lid into the cheek with no hollowing.
