Former Rams C John Sullivan, who started Super Bowl last year, is latest lineman to lose massive amount of weight – Yahoo Sports

Less than a year after starting Super Bowl LIII, former Los Angeles Rams center John Sullivan looks nothing like an NFL lineman.

A NFL safety, maybe.

Sullivan said he has lost about 70 pounds in less than a year. He posted a picture to his Instagram account of his new physique this week, and its pretty astonishing.

Sullivan posted a post-workout picture and said hes down to 240 pounds. It seems like he might be even lighter than that. Sullivan was listed on at 312 pounds. Hes on the left:

Former teammates might not even recognize him.

Other offensive linemen have dropped a ton of weight immediately upon leaving the game. The most prominent example is former Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas, who is on NFL Network now and is much thinner. Former Carolina Panthers tackle Jordan Gross and San Diego Chargers center Nick Hardwick also had a shocking amount of weight loss right after leaving the game.

Linemen have to maintain a high weight to survive in the NFL, and that often includes unhealthy eating habits. Some of the players who have lost weight after leaving the game cite concerns about their long-term health as a reason for slimming way down.

Sullivan played nine seasons with the Vikings and Rams, starting 125 games. The Rams declined his 2019 option and like many players, the 34-year-old Sullivan faded out of our consciousness. He didnt hold a retirement press conference or anything, but its clear from the current picture above that he is retired.

Playing in the NFL isnt good for anyones health, and especially linemen who are 300-plus pounds. Sullivan wont play again, but he probably feels a bit better.

Experts Weigh In on the Best Diets for 2020 – Medical Bag

The Mediterranean Diet was picked as the best diet overall for 2020, according to new rankings released by US News and World Report.

An expert panel assessed 35 diets to come up with the final results, examining the evidence behind each diets claims. Specifically, they evaluated the likelihood of short-term and long-term weight loss, how easy the diet was to follow, how well it conformed to current nutrition standards, and whether it could be an effective tool for diabetes and cardiovascular disease prevention.

Diets that rounded out the top spots for best overall included the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) Diet (#2), the Flexitarian Diet (a mostly vegetarian diet; tied for #2), the WW (formerly Weight Watchers) Diet (#4), the Mayo Clinic Diet (#5), the MIND (Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay) Diet (tied for #5), and the Volumetrics Diet (food is divided into categories based on energy density; tied for #5).

The Keto Diet, which focuses on strict carbohydrate limitations and high-fat intake, was ranked at #34, with some experts noting that it could lead to nutritional imbalances and that there was insufficient evidence to suggest long-term weight loss. Other diets that made the bottom of the list included the Raw Food Diet (#31), the Atkins Diet (#32), the Whole30 Diet (#33) and the Dukan Diet (#35), which the experts thought was too restrictive, difficult to follow, and unlikely to result in long-term success.

As for diabetes prevention and management, the Mediterranean Diet (#1), DASH Diet (tied for #2), Flexitarian Diet (tied for #2), Mayo Clinic Diet (tied for #2), and Vegan Diet (tied for #2) were at the top of the list, while the Ornish Diet (#1), Mediterranean Diet (#2) and DASH Diet (#3) were voted best heart-healthy diets.

For those looking for a quick way to drop the extra holiday pounds, the experts chose the HMR (Health Maintenance Resources) Program (delivered meal replacement; #1), the Optavia Diet (similar to Medifast products; #2), the Atkins Diet (tied #3), the Jenny Craig Diet (tied for #3), the Keto Diet (tied for #3), and the WW Diet (tied for #3).

The diet pills that may help you lose weight and are backed by scientific research – Insider – INSIDER

Just about anyone who's tried it knows that losing weight is hard. When calorie restriction and cardio workouts leave you tired and hungry, anything that could hurry progress seems worth a try especially something as easy as a pill.

Americans invested $2 billion dollars on weight loss supplements in 2015, despite the industry's complicated history. When it comes to diet pills, there are two different types: prescription drugs and over-the-counter supplements. And they are not created or regulated, equally.

Here's what you need to know about each and whether they can help you lose weight.

The FDA has approved five prescription drugs for long-term overweight and obesity treatment based on research proving their safety and effectiveness:

A few other medications, most commonly Phentermine, are approved for short-term use. But prescription weight loss medication isn't for everyone. Doctors often reserve these treatments for patients with a BMI over 30 kg/m or those who have obesity-related health complications, like high blood pressure or diabetes.

These pills aren't a magic bullet for obesity. Weight-loss medications are used along with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, which needs to be continued following treatment with prescription diet drugs. Also, side effects are common and can be severe.

There is a much larger selection of diet pills available that are neither FDA approved or regulated. In fact, "Federal law does not require dietary supplements to be proven safe to FDA's satisfaction before they are marketed," according to the FDA website.

Since over-the-counter diet pills don't have to be vetted for safety or efficacy, it's much easier to get them onto shelves and into your medicine cabinet. In fact, most manufacturers of weight loss supplements don't test their products in humans before taking them to market. So, if you're considering a diet pill supplement, there are a few things you might want to know first.

These types of diet pills often contain ingredients like vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and herbs. The most common ingredients can be found in a database from National Institutes of Health. It will tell you everything that researchers know about an ingredient so far. Is it safe? Does it work? That's where you'll find out.

For instance, there's Garcinia Cambogia, which comes in products like HydroxyCut and Plexus Slim. It's supposed to suppress appetite and decrease the number of fat cells your body makes. Though its considered "fairly safe", there's no evidence that it actually helps with weight loss, and excessive use has been linked to liver problems.

Other diet pills may contain chitosan, from the shells of crabs, lobsters, and shrimp. In theory, it's supposed to bind fat in your digestive tract so your body can't absorb it. In reality, the NIH states that the amount of fat it binds is probably not enough to help you lose a significant amount of weight.

However, the most common group of ingredients is stimulants like caffeine, Yerba mate, bitter orange, or Guarana. And when it comes to the data on these ingredients, there's not a lot to suggest they help in any way with weight loss, says Kathering Zeredsky, a registered dietician at Mayo Clinic.

For example, a 2019 study showed that rats given caffeine burned more calories than rats doing the same amount of exercise without a stimulant. But there is no evidence that the effect carries over to humans.

Theoretically, all of these ingredients should help with weight loss, but it's extremely difficult to figure out if they work in practice, Zeredsky says. That's because most diet pills are made up of multiple ingredients and the directions suggest you take them with a diet that's restrictive in calories. So, it's hard to tell if you lost weight because of the product or because you simply ate fewer calories.

No matter what diet pill ingredient or program you're considering, it's critical that you talk to your pharmacist first, Zeredsky says, especially if you take other medications.

Though many of the long-standing ingredients are considered safe, they can have toxic effects at high doses. And it's possible that they could interfere with your other medications. Your pharmacist can walk you through the cryptic ingredient list, and point out any red flags.

Losing weight can help you lose the pain, too – Harvard Health

Many health conditions are worsened by excess weight, and the stress of extra weight on joints can lead to painful conditions, particularly of the knees and feet. It makes sense, then, that losing weight often helps to relieve some kinds of pain.

Finding an eating plan that is healthful and enjoyable will help you stick with your weight loss goals for the long term and maintain any weight loss you manage to achieve.

To manage your weight, follow these simple rules to cut back on calories:

As for physical activity, you'll find that many forms of exercise are more difficult for people with hip or knee pain. Exercises that are easy on the joints include swimming and water aerobics. Talk with your doctor or physical therapist, who can recommend other ways to incorporate physical activity without making your joint pain worse.

There is no magic answer as to how much weight you need to lose in order to make a difference. As few as 10 pounds or 10% of your overall weight might help, but this can vary from one individual to another.

Diet Demand Finds Flaws in the Military Diet Says There Are Much Better Options for Weight Loss – Yahoo Finance

Greenwood, MS, Jan. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The popular Military Diet has been around for a few years now and doesnt appear to have any chances of slowing down despite having no connection to the actual military. The high protein, low-calorie diet is used to help people lose weight within a few weeks under a restricted meal plan three days per week. Dieters will eat three low-calorie meals per day to ramp up metabolism, while the other four days are free to consume a little bit more. Meals include hard boiled eggs, toast, some fruit, crackers, coffee or tea, and yes ice cream. Despite its claims of 10 lbs. per week of weight loss, there have been very few studies conducted on the military diet to show its efficacy. Dr. Tom Burns of the nationally recognized Diet Demand says that This style of dieting never gets past the glycogen use phase and into the extended fast loss phase. Meaning, people may see a drop in weight on the scale, but fat loss will most likely be minimal and unsustainable. This is due to the use of glycogen stores which will shed more water than fat. People might enjoy the benefits initially, butwater weight regain is likely as soon as they start eating normally again.Given the calories in vs calories out model, cutting calories three times a week can potentially generate some weight loss, but again the diet itself simply is not sustainable in for any long-term period.

Furthermore, the Military Diet does not emphasize healthy whole foods that support long-term weight loss and maintenance. Instead, Diet Demand recommends a well-balanced diet of vegetables, proteins and healthy fats for both initial and long-term fat loss. For anyone looking for quick and encouraging weight loss results that are sustainable and also encourage improved health markers, Dr. Burns recommends a much better option Diet Demands Jumpstart Diet. This combination of doctor-supervised diet planning and potent prescription aids to control appetite and discourage bad eating habits, is currently helping patients quickly lose up to 20 pounds per month.

Dear Dietitian What are the worst diets? – Kiowa County Press

Dear Readers,

Last week we discussed U.S. News' rankings of the top 3 diets for overall health, so it seems only balanced to discuss the bottom 3 this week. A panel of nutrition experts evaluated the diets based on seven categories:how easy it is to follow, its ability to produce short-term and long-term weight loss, its nutritional completeness, its safety and its potential for preventing and managing diabetes and heart disease (1).

Coming in at #33 is the Whole 30 Diet. Its claim, although lacking scientific evidence, is that our modern, industrialized food production is the cause of many health problems. In this diet, alcohol, grains, dairy, legumes, and sugar are eliminated for 30 days. On the 31stday, you begin adding foods back to your diet so you can identify the ones that cause digestive distress (2).

#34 is the Keto Diet, a high-fat, low carbohydrate diet. This diet provides quick weight loss in the beginning, and many claim they don't feel hungry because they are filling up on fat, which stays in the stomach longer than carbs. Since you are taking in very few carbs, your body's preferred energy source, your body goes into a state of ketosis where it relies on fat for energy. The fat isn't broken down efficiently in the absence of carbohydrates, producing ketones in the process. Hence, the name Keto.

Bringing up the rear is yet another low carb diet, the Dukan Diet at #35. This diet was created by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French physician who specializes in weight management. Its premise is that eating protein helps people lose weight, so on this diet you basically eat a lot of meat with non-starchy vegetables. It promises fast weight loss in the beginning and once you've reached your goal, you slowly add bread, cheese and fruit back to your meal plan (3).

The one thing all these diets have in common is that they are all low carbohydrate diets. As I've stated in the past, these diets produce fast weight loss in the beginning by depleting the body's glycogen stores. Glycogen is a form of carbohydrate stored in the muscles and liver that is used for energy in between meals. Water is released when glycogen stores are depleted, resulting in a quick 3-to-5-pound weight loss.

The vast majority of research on nutrition and disease prevention shows that a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, i.e., healthy carbohydrates, is the key to preventing chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease. Therefore, we need more of these foods in our diets to provide better health.

Dear Dietitian does not recommend any of the above diets for weight loss or better health. These diets restrict healthy foods and may result in nutrient deficiencies. Please talk to your doctor or dietitian before beginning a new diet.

Until next time, be healthy!

Dear Dietitian

New Study from JumpstartMD Finds the Most Effective Commercial Weight Loss Programs Are Medically Supervised with Real Science and Real Food – Yahoo…

Study is the most comprehensive review of commercial weight loss offerings ever published in the medical literature

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --JumpstartMD, a medical weight loss company focused on using real science and real food for personalized long-term weight loss success, today announced new study results that were published in The Journal of Obesity. The study, Effect of JumpstartMD, a Commercial Low-Calorie Low-Carbohydrate Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Program, looked at commercial weight loss programs across the country and found JumpstartMD produced the most significant weight loss outcomes out of all nationally-available real food offerings through a 1:1 medically supervised program that emphasizes real, low-carb foods alongside an individualized clinical assessment. The most comprehensive review of commercial weight loss offerings ever published in the medical literature, this study's findings draw compelling conclusions about ways for individuals to reach their wellness goals.

The study examines outcomes from 22,407 JumpstartMD members, seen over the course of a decade from 2007 - 2017. Bay Area-based JumpstartMD's results were far superior to any other real food based commercial weight loss programs, and in just one month on the JumpstartMD program, members lost nearly 10 lbs, or five percent weight loss, whereas The Institute of Medicine defines clinically significant weight loss over the course of one year as five percent. Further, JumpstartMD clients who attended 75 percent or more of their weekly in-person appointments lost two times the amount of weight after six months relative to those who attended 50 percent or less of their visits. Weight loss is an intimately personal journey, but, despite the digital age, there is something special and effective about in-person, consistent accountability and support.

"Obesity continues to be a growing epidemic in the United States, and we know that Americans are looking for help in their sustainable weight loss journey," said Dr. Sean Bourke, founder and CEO, JumpstartMD. "After seeing over 70,000 patients at JumpstartMD, we've created a successful roadmap for patients seeking long-term weight loss. Each client starts our program with a robust clinical assessment (biometric tests, body composition analysis and more) and from there, we create an individualized plan focused on fresh, low carbohydrate foods. We hope the study offers actionable advice and tools for people looking to accomplish clinically significant, long-term weight loss."

By focusing on a low-carbohydrate, personalized diet plan informed by serial body composition analyses and laboratory studies, JumpstartMD success rates confirm that:

Founded in 2007, JumpstartMD has 12 offices in the Bay Area including: Marin, Piedmont, Walnut Creek, San Francisco, Redwood City, Burlingame and more, with four new Bay Area centers coming soon.

About JumpstartMDJumpstartMD is a medical practice dedicated to preemptive medicine through lifestyle changes and healthy, sustainable, clinically significant weight loss. Informed by cutting edge research, quantified biometrics and medical supervision, JumpstartMD tailors weight loss plans to help members through a low-carbohydrate, real food based, personalized wellness approach.

This Harvard study might put the end to the carbohydrates war – Ladders

Modern diet science is much more charitable towards carbs than fads of old. New data assures us thatcarbohydrates areessential to a balanced dieteven when weight loss is an immediate objective.

But a new study published by Harvard researchers in the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal found that not all carbs are equal.

The study, which featured more than 35,000 Ameican adults aged 20 and older, found that the quality of a food group impacted longevity significantly more than the presence of a food group in a given regimen. Despite past studies, a low-fat diet isnt indicative of an effect, sustainable diet.

In this study, overall low-carbohydrate-diet and low-fat-diet scores were not associated with total mortality, researchers said. Unhealthy low-carbohydrate-diet and low-fat-diet scores were associated with higher total mortality, whereas healthy low-carbohydrate-diet and low-fat-diet scores were associated with lower total mortality.

These findings suggest that the associations of low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets with mortality may depend on the quality and food sources of macronutrients.

Since the weight loss market is such a lucrative industry and the medias obsession with diets, it has been argued by some that the market makes a point to blur the line between personal objectives and dietary guidelines. If someone needs to lose weight for health reasons or even for cosmetic purposes, there are healthyand expedient ways to do so.

While carbohydrates give us energy, if the energy isnt used after consumption then theyre stored in our muscles and liver for later. Eventually, if unused, the carbohydrates will turn into fat. Low-carb diets, if adhered to correctly, promote weight loss by limiting the number of carbs we need to use before they become stored as fat. This method works for about six months but fails to be a sustainable system in the long term.

Relying on meats for energy at the expense of carbs is linked toa higher risk for cancer and early death.Restricting carbohydrates is the quickest way to drop weight as long as you apply this restriction to a considered timeline.The Dietary Guidelines for Americas recommend that carbohydrates make up between 45% to 65% of your daily calories. Thats about225 grams for women and to 325 grams for men.

Unlike previous studies, the researchers not only took the number of carbs into account but also the source of carbs consumed. This prerequisite provided an important insight into the role balance plays into longevity and dietary guidelines. When accounting for the total number of person-years (297,768), 4,866 total deaths occurred. Researchers said low-carbohydrate-diet and low-fat-diet scores were not associated with total mortality, but a healthy low-carbohydrate diet and a healthy low-fat diet were associated with lower total mortality.

Our findings show clearly that the quality rather than the quantity of macronutrients in our diet has an important impact on our health, said Zhilei Shan, a postdoctoral researcher at Harvards Department of Nutrition, in a press release. The debate on the health consequences of low-fat or low-carbohydrate diets is largely moot unless the food sources of fats or carbohydrates are clearly defined.

The recommended carb intake can be obtained in three different ways: sugars, starches, and fibers. Each has its own set of health benefits. In addition, fruits, vegetables, milk, grains, seeds, and nuts are a good varied placed as well. When it comes to addressing mortality statistics, there are confounding factors to consider. Carbs, for instance, primarily provide our bodies with energy. If fibers are consumed in your daily carb intake, you lower your risk for cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes.

One recent study found that people who ate at least five fruits a day lived roughly three-years longer than those who didnt. Earlier this week, a new report about habitually consuming skim milk reversed the aging process by an average of four-and-a-half-years.
