But not many have linked it to the amount of food taken in during lunch and dinner. A recent study has shed light on the relationship of food intake during lunch and dinner. The findings of this study could help people who want to lose weight. Researchers found that subjects who took a heavy lunch and a small dinner (the LM group) lost more weight and body mass than those who consumed more food during dinner and less at lunch (DM group). The LM group also had lower insulin resistance and therefore showed improved health compared to the DM group. Experiment design Eighty overweight and obese women aged 18 to 45 were asked to take either a main meal at lunch … [Read more...] about Eat a big lunch but small dinner to lose weight faster and not feel cranky

ByAaron E. Carroll March 26, 2018 Leer en español The endless array of diets that claim to help you shed pounds tend to fall into two camps: low fat or low carbohydrate. Some companies even claim that genetics can tell us which diet is better for which people. A rigorous recent study sought to settle the debate, and it had results to disappoint both camps. On the hopeful side, as The New York Times noted, people managed to lose weight no matter which of the two diets they followed. The study is worth a closer look to see what it did and did not prove. Researchers at Stanford University took more than 600 people (which is huge for a nutrition study) aged 18 to 50 who had a body mass index of 28 to 40 (25-30 is … [Read more...] about What We Know (and Don’t Know) About How to Lose Weight
A new study will convince you to ditch your chair for a standing desk as soon as possible. Simply standing for 6 hours per day instead of sitting down can help you to lose weight, research suggests. Studies are increasingly pointing out the various ways in which excessive sedentary time is bad for our health. One such study showed that too much sitting may speed up biological aging, as a sedentary lifestyle may shorten our telomeres, which are the protective caps at the end of chromosomes. The link between obesity and sedentarism is also well-known. Adding depth to this link is another study that we recently reported on, which suggested that too much sitting can contribute to fat buildup around our internal organs. We all know that exercising more is the key to countering the negative effects of sitting down, but finding the time and the willpower to head to the gym is sometimes challenging. Could something as simple as standing instead of sitting also help us to lose weight? A new … [Read more...] about Can simply standing help you to lose weight?
When you want to lose weight, one of the first pieces of advice you’ll hear is “eat less.” But according to a new study from Penn State University, simply choosing to eat more of your favorite healthy foods may be a better approach to weight loss than reducing your portion sizes.In the study of about 100 women, two groups — one of which had prior training on weight loss strategies like portion control — came into a lab once a week for four weeks to eat lunch. Their meals consisted of seven foods with different calorie loads, and the portion sizes they were served varied each week.The researchers discovered that both groups ate more food when their plates contained more food, lead study author Faris Zuraikat, a graduate student in Penn State’s department of nutritional sciences, told Men’s Health. This was surprising, because even though the trained group should have eaten less, they couldn’t resist the amount of food that was put in front … [Read more...] about No, You Don’t Have to Eat Less to Lose Weight
New research, published in the journal Appetite, suggests that, when it comes to dieting, it's not how much you eat — but rather, what you eat — that influences calorie intake the most. Faris Zuraikat, a graduate student in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at Pennsylvania State University, led the new study, which follows up from a previous 1-year randomized controlled trial that investigated how different food portions influenced weight loss. The former trial aimed to explore the so-called "portion size effect," which occurs when people are served bigger portions than what they originally wanted but end up eating more nonetheless. To this end, the previous trial trained the participants to gain more control over their portions, presenting them with useful strategies for portion size management. In this new trial study, the researchers wanted to see if people who had been previously trained to manage their portions would respond differently to increasing portion … [Read more...] about Eating less may not the best way to lose weight, study shows
