Losing weight is difficult. If it was easy, a £586billion global industry (2014 figures) selling you things to help you lose weight couldn’t exist. However, it is certainly achievable, regardless of how many times you may have tried and failed. It is also within reach of anyone, even if you feel you are too far gone. At Diets Don’t Work PT we have had cases of clients who were hardly able to walk they were so heavy. Not only did they successfully lose weight but they also ended up enjoying sport and exercise as a way of life. People talk about eating less than you need to in order to lose weight. This is of course a pre-requisite of success. But they seldom talk about failure. Weight loss is never linear. That is to say, even if you consistently eat the correct amount of calories to lose 2lb a week, you still won’t lose 2lbs a week, every week. Some weeks it may be more; some weeks it may be less. Some weeks you may even put on weight! Why? The reason for weight … [Read more...] about Diets don’t work: Be prepared for failure to succeed

Health Milk dairy vegan The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is set to crack down on non-dairy products that are marketed as milk. The agency will publish new guidance on what can be described as milk, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Tuesday. He told the audience at the Politico Pro Summit: “An almond doesn’t lactate, I will confess." Gottlieb's comments were in reference to the FDA’s current standards on milk, which state: "Milk is the lacteal secretion, practically free from colostrum, obtained by the complete milking of one or more healthy cows."

Health Cancer Carcinogens Recently, Californians began noticing signs in their local coffee shops: “Chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity, including acrylamide, are present in coffee, baked goods, and other foods or beverages sold here.”Really? Is nothing sacred? Not even our caffeine fix?The apparent culprit is acrylamide, which occurs naturally during the brewing process. At high doses, the chemical has been known to cause cancer in mice. The real culprit, experts say, is overzealous signage.Warning signs can often be more harmful than the supposed carcinogens, says David Spiegelhalter, professor of public understanding of risk in the Statistical Laboratory at the Center for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.

Health Cancer Cellphones Tiffany Frantz got her first cellphone when she was 16.She loved that flip phone. Every morning, on her way out the door, she’d slip it into the left cup of her bra. When she was 21, while watching television one night with her parents in their Lancaster, Pennsylvania, living room, she felt a lump the size of a pea in her left breast, just beneath her phone. Tests later showed four cancerous tumors. “How in the world did this happen?” her mother asked.Dr. John West believes he knows. In 2013, the Southern California breast cancer surgeon and five other doctors wrote in the journal Case Reports in Medicine about Frantz’s tumors and those of three other young women. Each of them regularly carried a cellphone in her bra. “I am absolutely convinced,” West tells Newsweek, “that there is a relationship between exposure to cellphones and breast cancer in young women who are frequent users.”West has no proof, however. His … [Read more...] about Do Cellphones Cause Cancer? Government Study Reveals ‘Stunningly Important’ Findings
