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
Relationship weight gain
In the 2011 comedy "What's Your Number," Ally (Anna Faris) decides to revisit ex-boyfriends in hopes that one of them will turn out to be "the one." In one scene, she runs into an ex, Donald, and flashes back to their less-than-healthy relationship. Both were overweight. Ally suggests cooking, but Donald wants to go out to eat. Back in the present, both are clearly impressed by one another's newly acquired fit physiques. Relationship-related weight gain seems to be an accepted fact these days. The theory is, as we get comfortable with our partner, we stop caring as much about how we look, our nutrition, and our exercise level. But a new study looked at more than 2,000 people who were in a marriage or long-term relationship and found that a truly supportive relationship was associated with lower body weight in middle age. If you've both been gaining weight, take the time to assess how you can be more supportive to one another, not just about nutrition and exercise (vitally important) … [Read more...] about Don’t Put on Relationship Pounds
Abstract BackgroundThe role of dairy products in obesity treatment for adolescents is unclear. The study purpose was to assess the association between dairy intake and changes in BMI z-score (zBMI) during adolescent obesity treatment.MethodsObservational study nested within a randomized control trial. Linear mixed-effects regression models were adjusted for important non-lifestyle factors then further adjusted for dietary and physical activity variables. In total, 91 adolescents were studied.ResultsEach serving of total dairy (β = −0.0054, P < 0.01), unflavored milk (β = −0.012, P < 0.01), reduced fat (β = −0.0078, P < 0.05), and low fat/fat-free products (β = −0.0149, P < 0.01) was associated with a decrease in zBMI over 12 months. These associations were no longer significant after adjustment for other dietary and physical activity factors. Sugar-sweetened beverage intake was inversely associated with intake of total dairy … [Read more...] about Association of dairy intake with weight change in adolescents undergoing obesity treatment

Abstract BackgroundPrevious research has examined the role of early-life risk factors on childhood weight gain.The extent to which these factors drive socioeconomic differences in weight is unclear. We aimed to quantify the influence of early-life risk factors on the development of socioeconomic inequalities in children’s body mass index (BMI) z-score at 10–11 years.MethodsOverall, 2186 children from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children were examined. Socioeconomic position (SEP) was measured as a continuous composite of parent’s education, occupation and income. The Product of Coefficients mediation method was used to quantify the contribution of maternal smoking during pregnancy, gestational diabetes, prematurity, caesarean section, birthweight, not being breastfed, early introduction of solid food, maternal BMI and paternal BMI to the relationship between SEP and BMI z-score.ResultsEach increasing decile of SEP (higher SEP) was associated with a 0.05 unit … [Read more...] about Influence of early-life risk factors on socioeconomic inequalities in weight gain
