Q. A tumor was discovered in my kidney how should I prepare myself to the future events?

Asorry to hear...there are all sorts of tumors in kidneys but generally i recommend first of all talking to your family and explain the situation. but only after you understand what it is and what that means. you will need a lot of support and you don't want to leave your loved ones in the darkness about it. believe me that is the basic in preparing yourself to any tumor therapy.
good luck!!
you'll be fine i'm sure!!

Q. Too many weddings with too many fatty food – any advice?

In the last few months I’ve been on a moderate diet, and already lost 10 pounds, but now I’m facing a threat – a series of weddings, all of them with lots of fatty food and cakes tempting me to “just taste them”… Any advice how to avoid these calorie-rich pitfalls? :-)
A1Try to pick the low-calorie food – a wedding doesn’t have to mean you must eat unhealthy food. For example drink water, eat salad etc.
A2You can try to skip the parts with the fatty-but-not-satiating parts to avoid eating cakes etc.
A3What I usually do when I go to a party (for instance a wedding), is eat whatever I want- only small portions of it. Try to eat the basic meal of the event (meat, etc.) and avoid the rest of the appetizers. As for deserts- I would take few small bites and not finish the entire dish. This way you don't feel guilty for enjoying the good food.
