They didn't hear the 'once a day' part, so they were giving me rice all the time, and ended up having me gain a ton of weight.” Hunter's weight gain started when he was young and continued into his teenage years. … [Read more...] about This Guy Got Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Surgery, and Went on to Lose 170 Pounds in 8 Months

Humans have been trying to lose weight since as far back as the third century B.C., when Hippocrates advised patients to stay slim by eating light foods, using seawater enemas and wrestling. Diet crazes, exercise fads and other dubious practices in the name of weight loss have been going strong ever since. In the 11th century, William the Conqueror invented the all-liquid diet after he got too fat to ride his horse. (The diet failed and some time later he fell off his horse — a tumble attributed to his corpulence — and died.) Nineteenth-century poet Lord Byron was famously afraid of gaining weight. He spent days eating nothing but red cabbage and apple cider vinegar — and exercising while wearing as many as six coats, to better sweat out water weight. Recent decades have been no different. We’ve cycled through the grapefruit diet, cabbage soup, cookies crammed full of wheat germ and low-fat everything. Today, you’re apt to hear that the only path to … [Read more...] about The new frontiers of weight loss

The study, conducted by a team of researchers from Cornell University and Nature’s Bounty Co., evaluated three top-reviewed weight loss diet books on Amazon.com. The chosen plans in the diet analysis were Eat to Live-Vegan, Aggressive Weight Loss; Fast Metabolism Diet; and Eat, Drink and Be Healthy. The first two titles were chosen to represent two genres of commercial weight loss diets, hypocaloric vegan, and high-animal-protein low-carbohydrate diets. The third diet plan, meanwhile, represented weight maintenance diets. Researchers then examined seven single-day menus of every diet to represent a week of menus on … [Read more...] about Does dieting always mean eating healthier?

DEAR MAYO CLINIC: I've read some research that indicates one possible contributing factor to obesity is the balance of bacteria in a person's gut. In someone who is obese, is it possible to right that balance by taking a probiotic supplement, such as Lactobacillus gasseri, in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise?ANSWER: It is true that the gut bacterial population in people who are obese is different from the population in people who are lean. Whether this difference contributed to obesity, however, or is a consequence of obesity is unknown. The research on this subject so far hasn't yielded clear answers. Although taking a probiotic is unlikely to cause harm, it may not help fight obesity.First and foremost, it's important to understand that weight gain is essentially a function of energy imbalance. You gain weight when you take in more calories than your body burns. And there is some evidence that bacteria in the gut play a role in how efficiently the body extracts energy … [Read more...] about Data murky when it comes to probiotics and weight loss
