Doing so decreases their risks of cardiovascular diseases and Type 2 diabetes, according to a new study. “The results are remarkable. Despite giving the women free reigns to an unlimited intake, the weight loss was stable after two years. A more significant fact than weight loss was the evident improvement in levels of fat in the blood, and signs of reduced inflammation,” said Caroline Blomquist, doctoral student at the Department of Public Health … [Read more...] about Overweight after menopause?

Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Well Subscribe Log In Subscribe Log In Today's Paper Advertisement Supported by Personal Health In the Paleo era, people ran around all day and rarely lived past 40, so their risk of developing the so-called diseases of civilization is unknown. ByJane E. Brody Aug. 6, 2018 It seems these days that every third person I meet is either already on the “Paleo” diet or planning to try it. Their goals are either weight loss or better health, but certainly not to save the planet. The main premise of the Paleo diet: If the cave men didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either. But is this sound nutritional advice? Let’s start with three basic facts: 1. There is no such thing as “a” Paleo diet. The Paleolithic era lasted 2.5 million years and involved different and continually evolving populations with a wide dietary range determined by climate, geography, … [Read more...] about Is the Paleo Diet Right for You?
Doug Michaels' weight loss journey started by accident, or, more precisely, with an accident. "I'm a village employee, and on a late September (2017) day, I was in a 6-foot-deep hole repairing a water main break when my worst fear came true," Michaels says. "I heard a couple of people yell, but it all happened so fast. A chunk of the street broke off and fell six feet -- straight onto my lower back. With extreme pain came extreme embarrassment. It took three men to help me out of the hole due to my size." At the time, Michaels, 31, was 5-feet, 9-inches tall and weighed 337 lbs."I was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital," says Michaels, who lives in Berkeley. "From that moment on, my life has never been the same. After a night full of X-rays, cat scans and MRIs, I was sent home with pain medication and the thought of back surgery in my near future."Instead of going the surgery route, Michaels wanted to try physical therapy. During the second session, he asked what he could do to improve his … [Read more...] about 84 pounds: How one man’s weight loss journey started by accident
Health Diet diet and nutrition Pasta Updated | Thanks to the popularity of low-carbohydrate diets such as keto and paleo, foods like pasta are widely seen as enemy number one when it comes to weight loss. But a study linking pasta to weight loss suggests the Italian staple has been wrongly vilified. It all comes down to pasta’s low glycemic index (GI), according to researchers at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Canada. GI is a system used to rate how quickly a food affects blood sugar levels. The sugar in high GI foods such as white rice, white bread and potatoes are digested and absorbed quickly by the body, while low GI foods such as green vegetables and lentils are burned slowly. Researchers investigated the supposed link between pasta and weight gain by assessing 30 randomized control trials with almost 2,500 participants who followed what was regarded as a healthy low GI diet, and ate pasta instead of other forms of carbohydrate. Study … [Read more...] about Eating Pasta Linked to Weight Loss in New Study
Wednesday, April 04, 2018 by: Michelle Simmons Tags: caveman diet, Diets, food science, nutrition, paleo diet, Paleo diet cons, Paleo diet pros, Paleolithic period, weight (Natural News) Like all types of diet, the Paleo diet – or the caveman diet – has its share of benefits and risks. Its moniker comes from the concept, which is based on what our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have consumed 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago, in a time known as the Paleolithic period. The diet encourages the intake of whole foods. These include seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, wild game, and eggs. Dairy products, however, as well as beans, grains, cereals, salt, alcohol, and processed foods are excluded. This stems from the belief that food items that were not available during the Paleolithic period could be dangerous to health. Some studies have shown that the Paleo diet can be a healthy way to lose weight. According to research, the diet takes approximately 30 percent … [Read more...] about The good, the bad and the ugly of eating like a caveman: Pros and cons of the Paleo diet
