Intermittent Fasting Benefits – Weight Loss, Immunity, Longevity –

Maybe youve tried intermittent fasting (IF) to shed a few (pandemic!) pounds, since the hope and potential for weight loss is what this eating plan is best known for. And yes, scientists are looking into whether or not it really is effective at helping people slim down. But some studies show that IFin which you only eat during a specified time periodmay have other possible long-term health benefits as well.

The goal with IF is improving metabolic health, reducing the risk of certain conditions such as diabetes, and increasing longevity, says Laura Kelly, C.N.S., L.D.N., an advanced genomic nutritionist at Nutritional Genomics Institute. One theory as to why fasting may be beneficial is that during the fasting period, the bodys cells are under mild stress, similar to exercise. The cells respond to this stress adaptively by enhancing their ability to cope with stress and to resist disease.

Intermittent fasting doesnt have a standard definition or regimen, says Deborah Cohen, D.C.N., R.D.N., associate professor in the department of clinical and preventive nutrition sciences at Rutgers School of Health Professions. Because of the number of different methods, its difficult to study and compare them, and we have limited evidence beyond six months about its benefits. Many of the studies also involve a very small number of participants.

Because of this, there's a lot we don't know yet about IFbut heres what researchers have found out about the emerging science behind the potential health benefits of intermittent fasting, and answers to your top questions about it:

For most healthy individuals, its fine to follow a fasting regimen. Theres nothing really harmful in trying it if you have no underlying health issues, such as diabetes, says Cohen. And if it promotes weight loss, that can have great psychological benefits, which may spur you on to other healthy behaviors such as making regular exercise part of your life, too.

Still, most experts agree that some people should steer clear of IF altogether. That includes kids and adolescents because they have higher calorie needs due to ongoing growth and development; women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; people with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes; and anyone with a history of eating disorders, says Cohen.

Intermittent fasting isnt a free pass to eat anything you want, contrary to what you may have heard (or wish were true!). You still should avoid processed foods, eat more whole foods from plants and animals, and get moving for at least 150 minutes per week. Your eating plan should be something you can follow the rest of your life to promote good health, says Cohen.

Heres what the science says about the ways IF might help you get healthier.

One study with 150 participants for 50 weeks showed IF to be as effective as (though not more effective than) a diet that restricts calories; other small studies have shown that IF will help you lose weight in the short-term. A review of 27 trials found that weight loss from .8 percent to 13 percent of baseline body weight occurred with IF, though the researchers pointed out that larger studies of longer duration are needed. In 16 of the studies that measured BMI, the participants BMI decreased by 4.3 percent, says Kelly. Reducing the daily eating window may also decrease caloric intake for the whole day, resulting in weight loss without restrictive calorie counting.

Theres some research showing potential benefits to heart health. Short-term studies show IF may be beneficial for regulating blood glucose levels and lipid panels (meaning cholesterol and other blood fats), though those effects may be partially related to the weight loss itself. A small 12-week study showed a decrease in waist circumference and visceral fat in people with metabolic syndrome. In addition, a small short-term study found that following an 8-hour time restricted feeding resulted in a slight reduction in systolic blood pressure (decrease of 7mmHg) over a 12-week period in obese subjects. However, its important to remember that while short-term gains are good, if youre trying to prevent complications with conditions such as blood pressure, its important that those gains stick around long term, says Cohen.

Chronic inflammation is associated with a long list of health conditions, including dementia, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease, says Cohen. While mice studies have demonstrated that short periods of fasting (24 hours) show a reduction in inflammatory markers, a small human study showed IF reduced the levels of pro-inflammatory factors such as homocysteine and C reactive protein, which contribute to the development of plaque in the arteries. Another small eight-week study in overweight patients showed an improvement of asthma symptoms including better pulmonary function.

Some research has shown that IF induces a process called autophagy, which plays a role in the functions of your immune system, including cell survival, cell defense, and regulation of immune responses, says Kelly. For example, autophagy is necessary for T cell production and survival in fighting off bacterial and viral infections. Preliminary research is exploring how to harness this process as a strategy for treating diseases such as Long COVID.

Decades of research has shown that rodents on fasting diets live longer. Human research also is exploring how fasting may influence circadian rhythms to increase longevity, says Kelly. Circadian rhythms, which affect physiological functions such as sleep and metabolism, are regulated by clock genes. These genes may become disrupted by age, illness, and environmental factors such as poor diet and stress. Studies have shown that fasting may optimize and reset these clock genes.

All of these studies show that scientists are on the hunt to figure out the real benefits of IF, whether the potential benefits last long-term, and which people would get the most out of trying out this way of eating. As the research continues, well learn more about how IF may be one more useful tool for helping us live longer, healthier lives.

Adele’s 100-Plus-Pound Weight Loss: What a Body Positivity Expert Wants You to Know – Everyday Health

Adele has a huge fan base, has sold more than 120 million records, has won 15 Grammy Awards, and has a new album coming out. But none of these achievements has garnered the singer quite as much attention as her recent weight loss and she wants people to know shes not okay with that.

In May 2020, the "Rolling in the Deep" singer posted a photo to her Instagram account that revealed a much slimmer physique, and unleashed an onslaught of headlines celebrating her visible weight loss something she had never spoken about publicly. It wasnt until her November 2021 interview with British Vogue that Adele opened up about her weight loss, and the public's reaction to it, for the first time.

It turns out that Adeles silence on the subject of her weight was entirely intentional.

My bodys been objectified my entire career, she said in the British Vogue article. The most brutal conversations were being had by other women about my body. I was very f***ing disappointed with that.

RELATED: Why Fitness Is Way More Than Hitting the Gym

Now that she is finally breaking her silence about her weight loss journey, Adele is taking a nontraditional approach by challenging the public reaction to her changing body rather than celebrating her newfound slimness. I did it for myself and not anyone else, Adele told British Vogue. So why would I ever share it? I dont find it fascinating. Its my body.

Frankly, thats a healthy choice for her, and pretty refreshing for the rest of us, too, says Paula Atkinson, LICSW, a psychotherapist who specializes in eating disorders. So often, Atkinson says, celebrity weight loss stories are meticulously documented, and this can be extremely triggering and send the unrealistic message that, "If I can do it, you can, too!"

Here are some real lessons Atkinson says we can glean from Adeles experience ones that have nothing to do with counting calories or fitting into a smaller size.

Adele told British Vogue that she didnt start exercising as a way to lose weight, but rather as a way to manage her mental health. It was because of my anxiety, the singer said. Working out, I would just feel better.

There is evidence that exercise can help decrease anxiety, Atkinson says. A systematic review and meta-analysis published in 2018 in BMC Health Services Research analyzed data from 15 previous studies and found that both high-intensity and low-intensity exercise reduced anxiety among participants (although high-intensity exercise had a greater effect).

Its also important to note that you dont need to lose weight to reap these benefits. In fact, a review published in September 2021 in iScience found that increased physical activity and fitness significantly improved the health and longevity of adults classified as obese, even when they didn't lose weight (which many people do not). On the other hand, weight loss alone isn't consistently associated with these benefits.

RELATED: 8 Ways Strength Training Boosts Your Health and Fitness

Although the rest of the world is talking about Adeles weight loss, she herself is focused on other changes. It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone, she told British Vogue. She explained later in the interview that she didnt follow a diet, and that the weight loss happened over the course of two years through exercise.

I appreciate that Adele wanted to move her body more thats so rad, Atkinson says. In addition to helping with anxiety, carving out time to exercise can be a great way to feel connected to your body without distraction. Exercising to feel good can help bolster this sense of connection with your body, whereas exercising for the sole purpose of losing weight might undermine it. Since so much of the messaging about fitness focuses on weight loss, Atkinson says that it can be hard to separate the two. But finding other motivations for moving your body to gain strength and flexibility, to de-stress, or to keep up with your kids, for example is hugely beneficial.

Atkinson warns that praising someones weight loss, even if you mean well, can be harmful. To say that weight loss is positively reinforced is the understatement of the century, she says. Our culture is obsessed with the idea that people in small bodies are superior to people in large bodies. Celebrating Adeles weight, rather than any other aspect of her fitness journey, such as her increased strength or stamina or mental health gains, sends the message that the only attribute that matters is how much a person weighs.

The truth is that most people who lose weight will gain it back. Past research has found that although most people who diet slim down in the short-term, the average amount of weight lost after two years was just two pounds. A review published in the BMJ in February 2020looked at data from 121 trials, with a total of 21,942 participants, and found that although most dieters lost weight in the first six months, that weight loss, and any health benefits that accompanied it, had disappeared by the one-year mark.

When someone regains weight, which is inevitable for most people, theyll remember all the praise they got when they were thinner. And this, Atkinson says, will just make them feel worse about their larger body.

RELATED: Fitness Pros Who Have a Balanced Approach to Wellness

Celebrities, it turns out, arenot just like us. In her interview with British Vogue, Adele readily admits that she had a lot of help in her fitness journey. 'I was basically unemployed when I was doing it,' she told the magazine. "'And I do it with trainers.' She very much gets that its a rich persons game. Its not doable for a lot of people, she says, a bit embarrassed, the article states.

Because of her wealth, Adele was able to spend much of her time and energy on improving her health. Most people arent able to hire a team of people to help them that way, nor are they able to carve huge chunks of time out of their day to devote to exercise. Most people who are able to keep weight off, its because their lives are devoted to that. They typically have to exercise for at least an hour a day, every day, and keep [eating very few calories], Atkinson says. Their number-one priority has to be keeping their body small.

People are shocked because I didnt share my journey. Theyre used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand, Adele told British Vogue, adding that people have been talking about her body since the start of her career, long before she lost weight.

Many people are, understandably, upset that Adele has lost this weight. Its just like when Lizzo was on her juice cleanse and people got upset, Atkinson says. It feels like a betrayal, because we have so few celebrities who are not participating in the body hierarchy that we have.

Ultimately, Adele (or Lizzo, or any other celebrity) doesnt owe her body to us. Fundamentally I believe in body autonomy, Atkinson says. "If Adele wants to make lifestyle changes to improve her health, thats great. And if she wants to make her body smaller, thats also just fine. She doesnt need to explain her motivations to anyone."

Atkinson hopes that celebrities in larger bodies who lose weight will use their platform to speak out against the oppression and the marginalization that they experienced before weight loss. But whether or not they want to do that is completely up to them, she says.

Know ‘negetive calorie’ food that help lose weight – Sambad English

New Delhi: Negative calorie food refers to those items that consume more energy during their digestion, in comparison to the amount of energy they give to the body. We can say that the calorie cost of digesting the food would be greater than its energy content.

These foods are typically high in fibre and have a low glycaemic index. Calories are an important component of food and everything we eat has calories. Calories are of two types. One is empty calories which dont have much nutritive value but just has calories and promotes weight gain. Foods with high fibre and water content usually have fewer calories and we need more energy to digest them, these are called negative calorie foods. These foods help to lose weight as they are not only low in calories but also help to burn out more calories than others. Most negative calorie foods are plant-based.

Soumita Biswas, Chief Nutritionist, Aster RV Hospital, shares the following 10 negative calorie foods:

* Celery: It contains 16 kcal/100g. It is rich in fibre, vitamin A, C and Folate. It is one of the most popular negative food items as most of its calorie value is stored in cellulose. Our body receives very few calories from celery as it is full of undigested fibre.

* Berries: Colourful berries such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries typically contain just 32 kcal for a half-cup quantity. Berries are called negative calorie foods because of their low glycaemic index and their protein content. It also contains antioxidants, which protects us from various cancers.

* Tomatoes: It has 19kcal/100g. Apart from its water content, it is an excellent source of fibre, potassium and vitamin C. Tomatoes also contain lycopene, an antioxidant known to protect us from skin cancer.

* Carrots: They contain 41 kcal/100g. Its vitamin A content is good for the eyes. Carrot fibre content keeps the stomach full for a longer time thus helps in weight loss.

* Cucumber: It contains 15 kcal/100g. This vegetable has high water content which is great to satisfy thirst along with providing all the necessary vitamins and minerals. The water content present in cucumbers is great for hydration. Along with quenching thirst, this fruit provides dietary fibre and is good for irritable bowel syndrome and diabetic patients.

* Watermelon: It has 30 kcal/100g. Some of the benefits of watermelon rind include a healthy heart, provide hydration and regulation of blood pressure. Additionally, watermelon seeds also have many health benefits starting from the prevention of anaemia to immune-boosting properties. The water content present in watermelon and vitamins A, B6, C along with lycopene act as an immune-boosting food.

* Apple: It provides 52 kcal/100g. Apple contains a good amount of antioxidants, vitamin C and fibres. Apples high fibre content helps in weight loss and it also helps to boost cognitive performance. Quercetin, an antioxidant present in apples, is also associated with lowering the risk of type 2 Diabetes.

* Broccoli: It contains 34 kcal/100g. Its vitamin A content improves vision. Calcium, Phosphorus, vitamin K content is essential for healthy bone development. Iron and folic acid help to prevent anaemia. Kaempferol, a flavonoid present in broccoli, has anti-inflammatory properties. Broccoli is also rich in Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) which is crucial for brain growth and development.

* Zucchini: It contains about 17 kcal/100g. It is packed with many important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This has a high fibre content and a low-calorie count. Fibre plays an important role in digestion. Zeaxanthin, present in Zucchini, plays an important role in preventing oxidative stress and improves eye health.

* Lettuce: It provides about 15 kcal/100g. Its vitamin C, Calcium, vitamin K, vitamin A content helps in boosting immunity. The fibre content of lettuce helps in weight loss. It is also associated with a healthy heart and maintaining eye health.

Are there any side effects?

There is no evidence that eating negative calorie foods leads to side effects. However, directly eating low amounts of calories is not advised if you are not under the supervision of a dietician. The calorie requirement to reduce weight is individualised. The requirement varies depending on the persons height, weight, BMI, BMR, and physical activity.

These foods can be added to our daily diet as snacks or cooking ingredients. Cucumber, tomatoes, carrots and lettuce can be used in various salads. Berries, apple or watermelon fruit can be used as a mid-morning or evening snack. Broccoli, zucchini or lettuce can be used in various preparations during cooking.

This Is The #1 Underrated Tip for Weight Loss, According to Meghan Markle’s Trainer | Eat This Not That – Eat This, Not That

If you've tried to lose weight through fasting, cutting carbs, or going hard on cardio it may be time to try something way simpler. A U.K. source is sharing a slick fitness tip from one ofMeghan Markle's trainers, who's come forward with major weight loss wisdom: If you're trying to look slimmer, there's one best-kept secret among some pros that's reportedly shown to deliver major physiological results.

This week, Hello! has reported that back in 2018, Meghan Markle's former trainer, Craig McNamee, revealed that when Meghan was acting on TV, he and the royal took"a full-body approach" to her workouts. McNamee added that "since Meghan was on screen, we really focused on posture," which included lots of core work, as well as exercises focused on the body's posterior sidelike the back, glutes, and hamstrings.

RELATED:15 Underrated Weight Loss Tips That Actually Work

Eleanor Burt, a sports massage therapist with certification in postural alignment, told Hello! that focusing on posture can indeed be a weight loss game-changer. "[G]ood posture helps with weight loss is because it aids the efficiency of practically all of the systems within the body," Burt explained. "The body works as a unit, so your musculoskeletal system's function (or lack thereof) will impact how well you can think, breathe, shift lymph, digest food and expel waste."

She went on to explain that "If you are stuck in a heavily flexed posture (a.k.a. a slumped, sitting position) without the muscular function to pull yourself out of it when you stand up, you will find that excess pressure on the internal organs will impact digestion, breathing patterns, and your general vitality."

Simple and Nutritious Breakfast Ideas That Will Help You Lose Weight Bike Hacks – Bicycle Times Magazine

Eating breakfast is important because it helps keep your metabolism going for hours after eating, so if youre not eating breakfast, then your body will start storing fat instead of burning it off.

Many different breakfast ideas can help you lose weight. Some of them are easy to make and others take a little more time, but they all have the same result.

The nutritious breakfast ideas listed below will help you get started on your journey to losing weight.

Smoothies are considered to be one of the best breakfast ideas for weight loss because they are a great way to get essential nutrients from fruit and vegetables.

However, there is also another reason why smoothies should be one of the first things you think about when it comes to healthy breakfasts.

Fruits that have been blended into a drink or put in a blender with other ingredients do not require as much chewing as solid fruits do, so the natural process of digestion begins in your mouth.

The saliva that is produced when you start to chew food works with enzymes in your stomach to break down foods and make them easier for the intestines to absorb nutrients from.

There are several types of smoothies, even keto-friendly ones such as a blueberry smoothie bowl. This filling keto smoothie will help you have the perfect breakfast because it is full of healthy fats and fiber, but low in carbohydrates.

All you need to do is add all of your ingredients into a blender and process until they reach a smooth consistency. Then, pour them in a bowl or cup, put any extra toppings such as coconut flakes, berries, or chia seeds and enjoy.

If you are looking for a simple breakfast idea that takes less than five minutes to prepare then look no further. Avocados have become popular in recent years because they are full of healthy fats which can help you lose weight faster.

They also contain fiber which will keep you full for longer, and potassium which can lower blood pressure.

Eating a slice of avocado toast in the morning will not only give you all the health benefits that this fruit has to offer but will also help speed up your metabolism because they contain B vitamins.

If you want an extra kick then add some cayenne pepper or black pepper for a bit more spice that can also help with weight loss.

One of the most nutritious breakfast ideas is eggs and vegetables, especially when you go for spinach because it contains choline, which can boost your metabolism and burn fat faster. The best part about this recipe is how easy it is to make.

You simply need to fry some onions in a pan, add spinach, fry it for a few more minutes and then scramble in your eggs.

You can choose to have one or two whole eggs with the yolk because both are good sources of protein that will keep you full until lunchtime.

Baked sweet potatoes are another great breakfast idea to help lose weight because they are full of healthy carbs that will keep you energized for hours.

They are also fat-free and contain potassium which helps lower blood pressure, not to mention theyre easy to prepare by simply baking them in the oven until soft.

Most people skip breakfast because they do not have enough time in the morning to prepare a healthy meal, but oatmeal is one of the easiest things you can make.

You simply need to add water or milk into oats and heat them for three minutes on the stovetop or microwave them until soft.

Then, top with berries and cinnamon which are both excellent additions that will speed up your metabolism and lower blood pressure.

If you want a simple breakfast idea but do not like any of the foods mentioned above, then rice cakes with peanut butter are an excellent choice.

They are full of healthy carbs and protein which can help you lose weight faster because they make you feel fuller for longer.

Just be careful not to go overboard on portion sizes as it could lead to unwanted calories that will prevent your body from losing fat.

The goal of a healthy breakfast is to give you the energy and nutrients needed for your day while fostering your weight loss goals. For some people, that means an oatmeal dish with fruit.

Others might need a protein shake after their workout in the morning or a banana and peanut butter toast later on in the day when theyre feeling hungry again.

No matter what type of breakfast you prefer, theres something for everyone who wants to shed off some pounds.

When trying to lose weight, it is important that you watch what you eat, but if you want a healthy breakfast then the options above are simply too good to pass up on.

Obesity May Increase Risk Off Breast Cancer By Almost 40%: Lose Weight Before It Is Too Late – TheHealthSite

It is important to understand why and how breast cancer and obesity are related. Read on to know it all.

Written by Editorial Team | Updated : October 15, 2021 8:29 AM IST

Managing weight is indeed becoming a challenge for most people in the modern world. Hectic lifestyles are increasingly forcing people to eat out or choose junk food. A sedentary lifestyle has also become the norm for many people. All this leads to weight gain and hence, it is no wonder that obesity is rampant in the world today. This is dangerous because being overweight puts us at a high risk for a variety of diseases including cancer. There is a lot of evidence now that proves that being overweight or obese after menopause increases the risk of breast cancer .

Post menopausal obese women have a 20-40 per cent increase in the risk of developing the disease. This is, however, not true for younger women. Numerous studies have found a link between a higher BMI (body mass index ) and breast cancer incidence. In fact , obesity and weight gain also increase the risk of death from the disease by affecting breast cancer growth and metastasis or spread. So, it is important to understand why and how breast cancer and obesity are related.

Obesity can trigger some changes in your body that can increase your risk of breast cancer.

This association between obesity and breast cancer is not simple. All studies point to the fact that the risk is more in women who have put on more weight in adulthood and not those who have been overweight since childhood. Also the risk is more in those who have extra fat in the waist area and not in the thighs or hips.

Also, another very important observation is that being overweight increases the incidence of breast cancer recurrence as well in those who have been previously treated for the disease.

The American Cancer Society says that exercise is a "breast healthy habit'. Around 150 minutes of brisk walking each week lowers one's risk of getting breast cancer. Ramping up your exercise routine is of utmost importance. Also eating healthy and eating mindfully helps in controlling weight and reducing the risk in turn. Obesity is an important but completely preventable cause of not only breast cancer, but a variety of other diseases.

So, this breast cancer awareness month, let each one of us take the campaign of reducing the disease in our own hands . Exercise regularly and eat right to maintain a perfect BMI . Stay fit, stay breast cancer free.

How Losing Weight Can Increase Your Life Expectancy – Articles and Videos, Featured, Health Topics, Weight Loss – Hackensack Meridian Health

October 15, 2021

There are quite a few consequences of obesity, including conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease. But did you know that being obese could also shorten your life expectancy?

According to a 2014 study by the Intramural Research Programa subsidiary of the National Institutes of Healthextreme obesity may shorten life expectancy by up to 14 years.

The effects of obesity on life expectancy have been very well studied, says Hans Schmidt, M.D., bariatric surgeon at Hackensack University Medical Center. Theres no question that it can shorten your lifespan, and by large numbers. If you can get the weight off before theres major damage done to your organs, that will tremendously prolong your life.

Worldwide, obesity has nearly tripled since 1975, and at least2.8 million people die each year due to being overweight or obese, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). WHO also found that39 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2020.

Globally, 44 percent of diabetes, 23 percent of ischemic heart disease and as much as 41 percent of certain cancers can be attributed to being overweight or obese, according to the WHO.

Whats devastating about numbers like this is that obesity is treatable, Dr. Schmidt says. It doesnt have to be this way.

Losing weight, even just 5 to 10 percent of excess weight, can add years to your life. Not only will you live longer, but also youll feel better and deal with fewer health complications.

Though its entirely possible to lose weight on your own, losing 100 pounds or more can be extremely difficult, says Dr. Schmidt.

Losing that much weight doesnt just require a few changes to your diet and routine, he says. It requires you to overhaul your entire life and way of doing things. Its not easy to do it without help.

Its proven that help, in the form of bariatric surgery, can extend your lifespan.

A study, published in the Lancet in May 2021, found that bariatric surgery was associated with increases in life expectancy among severely obese patients. If metabolic-bariatric surgery rates were increased worldwide to 3.5 percent among patients with diabetes and 2 percent among those without diabetes, more than 19 million life-years could be gained, the study states.

Whether you lose weight with the help of surgery or on your own, its never too late to start the weight loss journey.

A lot of people wait until theyre over 60 years old to lose weight, and by then, youve already done so much damage to your body and bones, Dr. Schmidt says. If you wait until your body is damaged, its hard to put it back together again. Start now.
