Credit: kdshutterman Reviewed by Dr. Richard Foxx, MD What Is Garcinia Cambogia? Garcinia cambogia is a tropical fruit that’s also known as Malabar tamarind or brindleberry. It has become a popular weight loss supplement that is purported to promote weight loss through appetite suppression and the blocking of fat production. Other claims suggest it may reduce insulin and inflammation levels and improve digestion. Like many supplements, however, these claims may be a little more hype than truth. The tropical Garcinia gummi-gutta (as it’s also known) species is native to Indonesia and looks like a small pumpkin or tomato, varying in color from dark green to pale yellow. The extract used in supplements is made from the peel, which is high in hydroxycitric acid (HCA). HCA is the ingredient that is believed to aid in weight loss and the other benefits of garcinia cambogia supplementation. How Does Garcinia Cambogia Work for Weight Loss?

People who have fatty liver disease related to being overweight may get the disease under better control when they get lots of support to lose weight, a research review suggests. Most people have a little bit of fat in their liver, but fatty liver disease can be diagnosed when more than 5% of the liver is made up of fat. If the condition isn’t linked to liver damage from heavy drinking, it’s known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and is most often associated with obesity and certain eating habits. For the current analysis, researchers examined data on 2,588 patients who were participating in 22 clinical trials of various interventions to help them lose weight. Fifteen studies tested behavioral weight loss programs; six tested medications; one tested weight loss surgery. The trials also looked at whether those interventions would improve biomarkers for NAFLD that can help predict the likelihood of serious complications. Compared with little or no weight … [Read more...] about Weight loss support helps people with fatty liver disease
Intermittent fasting is one of the most talked about eating regimes, thanks in part to Dr Michael Mosley. Six years ago he published the 5.2, a diet under which you rapidly reduce your calorie intake to just 500-600 calories per day on two 'fasting' days and eat normally for the other five. It became very popular. We caught up with Mosley earlier this year following the launch of his latest rapid weight loss programme, Fast 800 (Short Books, £8.99). Here's how it differs to the 5:2. Part 1: 800 calories per day for at least two weeks The Fast 800 is a three-pronged attack for weight loss, according to Mosley. In the initial stage you eat only 800 calories each day for at least two weeks (in some cases longer), he explains, depending on how much weight you want to lose. Alongside his book, Mosley has created the Fast 800 digital lifestyle programme (£99), a 12-week online support plan which allows people to tailor the approach to their … [Read more...] about Fast 800: Dr Michael Mosley on his latest rapid weight loss diet

However, it doesn’t boost morale by instilling a sense of camaraderie among people who are trying to shed weight. Instead, it inspires participants through the achievements of top performers. One of the most popular goals for self-improvement happens to be losing weight. Many people start working on this during the winter season so that their ideal beach body is ready when summer comes. There are many ways to slim down, … [Read more...] about Does the “buddy system” really encourage weight loss?
Profoundly obese people are prone to an irregular heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation, but new research suggests weight-loss surgery can improve the odds a procedure to restore a normal heart rhythm will work. When atrial fibrillation, or a-fib, cannot be controlled by medications, a procedure called ablation can help. It targets the nerves in the heart where atrial fibrillation occurs. By electrically burning these areas, the heartbeat might return to normal. "Bariatric [weight-loss] surgery before ablation was associated with a threefold reduction in atrial fibrillation recurrence rates," said researcher Dr. Eoin Donnellan, a fellow in cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic. Both obesity and a-fib are at epidemic proportions in the United States, and both can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, the researchers said. As many as one in five cases of a-fib are related to obesity, and obesity has been identified as a risk factor for the heart condition, the researchers … [Read more...] about Weight-Loss Surgery Improves Heart Procedure
