Keep up with your weight loss goals with daily weighing

According to research presented in the American Heart Association's 2018 scientific meeting, daily weighing may help with weight loss goals. People who don't weigh themselves at all or rarely were less likely to lose weight than those who weighed themselves often,Researchers examined the self-weighing patterns of 1,042 adults (78 percent male, 90 percent white, average age … Continue reading Keep up with your weight loss goals with daily weighing

Late night snack with cottage cheese has no major adverse metabolic effects

Associate Professor of Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences Michael Ormsbee and former Florida state university graduate student Samantha Leyh found that consuming 30 grams of protein about 30 minutes before bed appears to have a positive effect on muscle quality, metabolism, and overall health. They compared protein from whole food (cottage cheese) versus liquid protein … Continue reading Late night snack with cottage cheese has no major adverse metabolic effects

Amino acids link gut microbiome to obesity

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have discovered a new link between gut bacteria and obesity. They found that certain amino acids in our blood can be connected to both obesity and the composition of the gut microbiome.Increasing number of research studies indicate that our gut microbiome does play an important role in our health. … Continue reading Amino acids link gut microbiome to obesity

Animal studies show that naturally occurring peptide catestatin has potential as anti-obesity and type 2 diabetes treatment

Research by team from University of California San Diego School of Medicine shows that treating obese mice with catestatin (CST), a peptide naturally occurring in the body, showed significant improvement in glucose and insulin tolerance and reduced body weight.In a study published in journal Diabetes, researchers identified catestatins's role in the recruitment and function of … Continue reading Animal studies show that naturally occurring peptide catestatin has potential as anti-obesity and type 2 diabetes treatment

Obesity related Epigenetic changes in DNA

Obesity has been linked to "letter" changes at many different sites in the genome, yet these differences do not fully explain the variation in people's body mass index (BMI) or why some overweight people develop health complications while others don't. A large study from Boston Children's Hospital, the University of Edinburgh, the Harvard School of … Continue reading Obesity related Epigenetic changes in DNA

Vitamin E requirements increased in people suffering from metabolic syndrome

New research has shown that people with metabolic syndrome need significantly more vitamin E - which could be a serious public health concern, in light of the millions of people who have this condition that's often related to obesity. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition also made it clear that conventional … Continue reading Vitamin E requirements increased in people suffering from metabolic syndrome

Research shows red cabbage microgreens reduce weight gain and lower cholesterol in mice fed on high-fat diet

Microgreens are sprouting up everywhere from upscale restaurants to home gardens. They help spruce up old recipes with intense flavors and colors and are packed with nutrients. Now research has shown that for mice on a high-fat diet, red cabbage microgreens helped lower their risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease and reduce their weight gain. … Continue reading Research shows red cabbage microgreens reduce weight gain and lower cholesterol in mice fed on high-fat diet

New approach to treating Obesity with fat burning molecule ABX300

A small molecule ABX300 could provide valuable help in combating the global epidemic of obesity. When it was fed to obese mice, the animals' metabolism sped up and their excess weight was shed. It is doing so by recruiting the help of a body's own genes in countering the effects of a high-fat diet. The … Continue reading New approach to treating Obesity with fat burning molecule ABX300

Understanding signaling pathway that creates brown fat to help in fight against obesity and diabetes

A signaling pathway in fat cells may one day provide the key to better treatments for obesity, according to new research by scientists at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. They reported their findings in Genes & Development.This image shows adipose tissue, with fat droplets in greenand blood vessels in red. … Continue reading Understanding signaling pathway that creates brown fat to help in fight against obesity and diabetes
