Some diet and exercise programs can be dangerous as we plan for bikini season. Dallas Morning News columnist Leslie Barker is talking with us today to shed some light on the dos and don'ts of summer fitness.

It's that time of year again. The prospect of appearing in public wearing strapless sundresses and bathing suits has people researching diets and dashing to the gym. But not all fitness plans were created equal. Today at noon, Krys Boyd speaks to Leslie Barker, health and fitness columnist with the Dallas Morning News, about what's healthy and what's as we get ready for swimsuit season. 

As a fitness columnist, Barker has written about everything from women's health to the benefits and risks of alcohol consumption. Did you know that decluttering your home can help your mental health, or that there is such a thing as thighs that are too skinny?

Join us today on Think from noon to 2 p.m. on KERA 90.1 or stream the program live.
