What was Megyn Kelly’s secret to staying thin in law school? Wait for it ― fat shaming. “Some of us want to be shamed,” the NBC personality said Thursday on “Megyn Kelly Today.” “When I was in law school, I was gaining weight. I said to my stepfather, ‘If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, “Where you going, fat ass?’” And it works!” The revelation triggered nervous laughter in the audience.

A national fitness chain is exercising its right to control what channels appear on its TVs, and that means no more cable news. Earlier this month, Life Time, a fitness chain with 128 locations in the U.S. and Canada, decreed that all national cable network news stations be eliminated from its TV screens. The ban extends to CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

In recent years, Dry January has become increasingly popular, with more and more people accepting the challenge to go booze-free for the entire month. It’s turned into something of a movement, with millions of participants worldwide every year. (There’s even an app to help people stay on track.) “Many people flock to dry January as part of this ‘new year, new me’ mentality,” Leigh Winters, a neuroscientist and holistic wellness expert, told HuffPost in an email. “I presume that some people are coming off a drinking bender — feeling like they enjoyed a little too much wine or beer over the holiday season. And for those who don’t abuse alcohol, it seems like an obtainable and easy New Year’s resolution that can put you on the path to better health.”  Making it through Dry January is
