Just got out of our afternoon editorial meeting and we are working on some interesting stories for tonight's newscasts.

Wouldn't you know it ? Just as many people are making resolutions to lose weight... the FDA raises serious questions about some popular diet pills on the market. It's fining companies for not having enough scientific proof to back up their claims. But guess what ? You can still buy them ! A local diet expert "weighs" in on this mixed message at five.

The City of Portland is also concerned about your health. At least one Commissioner wants to make sure you don't get any trans fats at your favorite restaurant ... or breath in any second hand smoke at your favorite park. It's an interesting debate and you'll hear all about it tonight on our six o'clock news.

No health tips from me...but I did finally throw out the last of the Christmas fudge! Hey it's a start. If you're planning on hitting the slopes for some exercise this weekend looks like you'll need to pack the chains. Our crews ran into some major snow in Sandy today on the way up the mountain. Plenty of pictures and Matt's forecast all coming up starting at five.

As always.. thanks for watching. Tracy Barry
