Ten New Year's Resolutions You've Already Broken

The resolution: This is the year you finally feed yourself like a grownup, complete with veggies and all.
The reality: Eat healthfully? With the hangover you have? Only greasy fast food and All the Bread will cure your ills. It's basically medicine.Next Page
