The study, published in the Journal of Pain, revealed that even a small amount of weight loss eases pain all over the body, and not just the weight-bearing joints in obese patients. A team of researchers from the University of Michigan wanted to identify how obese patients experienced overall pain and chronic conditions, such as fatigue and depression. Thus, they carried out a study on 123 obese patients with these conditions and identified how weight loss could relieve their pain. People who suffer from obesity also tend to suffer from pain in the knees, hips, and lower back – all of the parts that are … [Read more...] about Relieve pain by losing weight: Research shows small reductions ease discomfort throughout the body, not just in weight-bearing joints

(Natural News) An easy way to lose weight is to stand instead of sitting. A new study discovered that standing rather than sitting for six hours each day could prevent weight gain as well as help lose weight.The study was carried out by a team of researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, New York that assessed the difference between calories burned when standing and when sitting.

Eat plenty of food—as much as you’re eating now, or even more—and still shed pounds. Seems like an unlikely weight-loss plan, right?Luckily, it’s not too good to be true: Developed by Barbara Rolls, Ph.D., a professor of nutritional sciences and obesity researcher at Penn State, the well-researched Volumetrics diet was named the number-two best diet for weight loss and tied for the number-five best diet overall (out of 40 diets) in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Diet Rankings. It received high scores from nutrition experts for being safe, effective, and sustainable in the long run.And, yes, it centers on one fairly simple idea: filling up on fewer calories. “The main claim, and premise by which the Volumetrics diet works, is the satiety claim,” says Lisa Davis, Ph.D., chief nutrition officer at Terra’s Kitchen.The primary focus is filling up on foods that are naturally low in calories and high in fiber or water—think … [Read more...] about What Is The Volumetrics Diet—And Can It Help You Lose Weight?
