This childhood obesity test is quick, free and doesn’t require any medical lab testing…
Contrary to popular belief, certain foods — especially high glycemic index foods and dairy products — may aggravate acne.
With the increase in childhood obesity, researchers at Penn State University and Johns Hopkins University decided to study whether a child’s response to stress could lead to obesity.
The foods that help you sleep can determine your sleep pattern… which has an important effect on your weight and health.
People who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to be obese, to gain weight and to develop heart disease and diabetes. Getting too much sleep can also be bad for your health.
But people who routinely get seven to eight hours of sleep a night generally have better health. New research shows they also eat differently from the short sleepers and the long sleepers.
If you’re too busy for a fitness plan, try HIT (High Intensity Interval Training) or SIT (Sprint Interval Training). HIT supposedly works for any age or fitness level. Exercise scientists came up with those names; that’s why they sound harder than they are.
I’ll explain how they work in a moment. But here’s the benefit for busy people:
You can reduce your exercise time by 70% and still achieve the same health benefits as 5 hours of endurance training per week.
To help with weight loss, researchers experimented with injecting botox into the stomachs of 60 people with mild or moderate obesity. Botox is a protein that comes from the botulism toxin. It relaxes or paralyzes muscles and has been used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles.
The researchers tried different doses of botox. In this study, they were hoping to slow the movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine (also known as gastric emptying), increase feelings of fullness and promote weight loss.
Here’s what happened:
This is kinda crazy… but apparently, if you physically throw away your negative thoughts about body image and diet, you’re more likely to truly get rid of them.
Here’s how to influence the effect of your thoughts…
Risk factors for early death such as having high blood pressure or a high body mass index are now joined by the risk factor of low muscle strength. Early death means dying before 55 years old.
For young people with an average age of 20, eating certain foods may make them feel happier, calmer and more energetic.
The timing of your large meals may affect how much weight you lose, how quickly you lose that weight and even how likely you are to develop diabetes…
