The Health Lie You're Telling Yourself

Posted by on Dec 14, 2013 in Health & Fitness | 0 comments

The numbers just don’t add up. Four in 10 people with at least one risk factor for type 2 diabetes–including obesity or high blood pressure–think they have no risk at all, finds a new survey by the American Diabetes Association. Even worse: 80 percent say they’re in good or excellent health. Hiding our weaknesses sometimes comes naturally. “We as human beings try to protect ourselves,” says diabetes educator Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, R.N., who was involved in the research. “We say, ‘I don’t have it that bad. I’m not that overweight.’ ” But in this case, denial can stand in the way of …read...

4 Ways to Outsmart Your Stomach

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Health & Fitness | 0 comments

Your stomach knows what time it is. That’s the new finding from Australian researchers, who discovered that your gut has its own circadian rhythm, much like the one that governs sleep and wake times. When you eat, your stomach stretches out, which activates nerves in your tummy. And how these nerves respond depends on the time of day, says study coauthor Amanda Page, Ph.D. During the day, the nerves are less sensitive, so you can eat more. “The stomach needs to be much fuller before these nerves send signals to the brain that you’re done eating,” says Page. At …read...

Mary J. Blige is 42—nearly 43!—and still looks amazing in a bikini. Her chiseled bod isn’t just the product of good genes, either: In a recent interview with Shape, the hip-hop legend revealed that she’s struggled to maintain her weight loss over the years, especially as she’s gotten older. But with the help of a physical trainer, Blige was able to regain her enviable physique—and intends to keep it that way. Want to do the same? Blige cut out alcohol as part of her plan, but a new study in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine reveals three other key strategies for staying svelte—for good.  Read...

An Easy New Way to Eat Less | Women’s Health Magazine

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Health & Fitness | 0 comments

You already have quite a few tricks up your sleeve that may help you eat less—chewing more, sleeping more, and drinking more water, to name a few.  Well, the latest trick may be the boldest one of all: Eat off of bright red plates, and you could eat less overall. That’s the conclusion from a new study published in the journal Appetite. For the study, researchers gave 240 participants snacks of popcorn and chocolate chips served on either red, white, or blue plates.  And it turns out that those who munched popcorn or chocolate chips off of red plates ate less overall than those who ate the snacks off of white or blue. Why? While previous studies have suggested that having a color contrast between your food and your dishes is key this study suggests something else may be at play...

Your Natural Winter Energy Boost

Need a spark? Leave the dark. Daylight exposure will perk you up, concludes a new study from the Netherlands. Researchers asked people to go about their business wearing something called a “Daysimeter,” which straps to your head and measures natural light exposure. (We’re picturing Geordi from Star Trek.) Turns out, the more daylight a person soaked up, the more energetic and alert he felt. Also illuminating: Those who suffered from the lowest levels of chronic fatigue tended to soak up nearly twice as much daylight as people who were perpetually worn out, the study shows. Cells in the retinas of your eyes respond to bright light by sending a signal to the alertness centers of your brain, explains study coauthor Yvonne de Kort, Ph.D …read...

Spring-Mounted Bike Pedals That Go Easy On Your Joints

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Health & Fitness | 0 comments

Biking to and from work every day can do wonders for your health and physique, but it’s not all a bed of roses. Using pedals that clip to your shoes and hold your feet firmly in place can cause wear and tear on your legs and joints. So a German company called BioConform has created a set of spring-mounted pedals that let riders lock in while still enjoying some freedom of movement in their limbs. Competitive cyclists might decry the design of the BIUS1 pedals as absorbing and wasting some of the energy transferred from their limbs to a bike’s drivetrain. But anyone who’s only racing being late for work should appreciate the pedals’ unique design, … …read more...
