Can a big breakfast and a small dinner help you lose weight? – Times of India

Both the groups lost weight, however, the people who ate a large breakfast lost more weight and lost more inches from their waists as compared to the group who ate a large dinner.

But wait before you start planning a heavy breakfast. This study was conducted only for 12 weeks and the number of people involved was less. The scientists looked only at the women with metabolic syndrome and not women who just wanted to lose weight. Moreover, eating only 1400 calories will in all probability lead to weight loss as it's much less than what people usually consume.

Before we start following this diet pattern, we need to understand that for the study, everything was controlled but that is tough to follow in real life.

Have more fruits, green vegetables and remember skipping meals is never a healthy option to lose weight.

Woman Missing for 2 Weeks Found Safe in Zion National Park –

SPRINGDALE, Utah A California woman who was missing for about two weeks in Zion National Park in Utah has been found and left the park with her family who had feared the worst, authorities said.

Holly Suzanne Courtier, 38, of Los Angeles, was found Sunday by search and rescue crews in a thickly vegetated area along the Virgin River after park rangers received a tip that she had been seen in the park, Zion National Park officials said in a news release Monday. They didnt say anything about her condition or what had happened.

Courtiers daughter, Kailey Chambers, told CNN that her mother hurt her head early in her hike and became disoriented.

She injured her head on a tree, Chambers said in a text exchange. She was very disoriented as a result and thankfully ended up near a water source a river bed. She thought her best chance of survival was to stay next to a water source.

Chambers said Courtier was so weak she was unable to take more than a step or two without collapsing.

This prevented her from being able to seek out help. She told me she was so dehydrated she couldnt open her mouth, Chambers said.

Crews began searching for Courtier after she didnt show up for her scheduled pickup in the park by a private shuttle on Oct. 6, authorities said. The park and nearby town of Springdale were filled with missing person signs featuring pictures of Courtier and the clothes she was wearing.

Her sister, Jillian Courtier-Oliver, told ABCs Good Morning America that her sister is recovering after being found with bruises all over her body and losing weight.

Courtier-Oliver said she had started losing hope her sister was alive in a park known for its towering red rock cliffs that has several hikes that take people along narrow trails with steep drops nearby.

It wasnt until two days ago I actually said, Im starting to lose hope, she said. They had a lot of cadaver dogs out, and I knew what they were looking for was a body, not a person. It was the first time I actually started losing hope. And I went with up with so much help knowing that we needed to find her.

The park released a statement attributed to the family.

We would like to thank the rangers and search teams who relentlessly looked for her day and night and never gave up hope. We are also so grateful to the countless volunteers who were generous with their time, resources and support, her family said in statement.

76% of rural Indians cant afford a nutritious diet: study – The Hindu

Three out of four rural Indians cannot afford a nutritious diet, according to a paper recently published in journal Food Policy. Even if they spent their entire income on food, almost two out of three of them would not have the money to pay for the cheapest possible diet that meets the requirements set by the governments premier nutrition body, it says.

Also read: India fares poorly in hunger index

Unlike the Economic Surveys Thalinomics, which provided a rosier picture of meal costs, this study uses the wages of unskilled workers who make up a larger proportion of the population than industrial workers, and includes items such as dairy, fruit and dark green leafy vegetables that are essential as per Indias official dietary guidelines.

Also read: The Hindu Explains | How did the National Institute of Nutrition arrive at the ideal weight of Indian men and women?

The paper, titled Affordability of nutritious diets in rural India, is authored by International Food Policy Research Institute economist Kalyani Raghunathan and others, and uses the latest available food price and wage information from the National Sample Surveys 2011 dataset.

The findings are significant in the light of the fact that India performs abysmally on many nutrition indicators even while the country claims to have achieved food security. On Friday, the Global Hunger Index showed that India has the worlds highest prevalence of child wasting, reflecting acute undernutrition. On indicators that simply measure calorie intake, India performs relatively better, but they do not account for the nutrition value of those calories.

The National Institute for Nutritions guidelines for a nutritionally adequate diet call for adult women to eat 330 gm of cereals and 75 gm of pulses a day, along with 300 gm of dairy, 100 gm of fruit, and 300 gm of vegetables, which should include at least 100 gm of dark green leafy vegetables. Selecting the cheapest options from actual Indian diets -- wheat, rice, bajra, milk, curd, onions, radish, spinach, bananas -- the study calculated that a days meals would cost 45 (or 51 for an adult man).

Also read:

Even if they spent all their income on food, 63.3% of the rural population or more than 52 crore Indians would not be able to afford that nutritious meal. If they set aside just a third of their income for non-food expenses, 76% of rural Indians would not be able to afford the recommended diet. This does not even account for the meals of non-earning members of a household, such as children or older adults.

Also read:

These numbers are somewhat speculative, but they do reveal the scale of the dietary affordability problem in rural India: nutritious diets are too expensive, and incomes far too low, says the paper.

Although their data ended in 2011, since when both food prices and wages have risen, the studys authors recommended that the government develop a similar tool to monitor dietary costs and affordability of nutritious meals. Currently, food costs are measured through consumer price indices (CPIs) which weight foods by expenditure shares. In poor countries such as India, CPIs are heavily weighted towards nutrient-sparse starchy staples, meaning that trends in the food CPI can be misleading from a nutritional standpoint, said the paper.

Boxing Nutrition: The benefits of seaweed in the diet Part 2 – WBN – World Boxing News

By Dr. Philip Goglia, WBC Nutrition Committee Chairman airs part two of his Benefits of Seaweed in a boxers diet.

Anti-Coagulant: Laboratory research has made it evident that seaweed possesses antioxidant and anti-coagulant properties. Anti-coagulants, also known as blood thinners, prevent the formation of blood clots and decrease the threat of stroke, cardiac failure, and obstruction in the veins and arteries. The polysaccharides called fucoidans, which are present in brown algae, such as Turbinaria ornate, kelp, and bladderwrack exert this beneficial effect.

Detoxification: Seaweed possesses the ability to detoxify and cleanse the body and facilitates the excretion of toxic waste. The binding property of the natural absorbent, alginate, which is present in seaweed, makes toxic materials, including heavy metals like lead, mercury, and other pollutants indigestible and eliminated them from the body through bowel movements.

Influenza: Seaweed possesses anti-viral properties that have been proven promising in providing a protective effect against Influenza B virus. Seaweed extracts obstruct the absorption of harmful viral particles in the cells and prevents the body from getting infected.

Cardiovascular Health: Seaweed has been useful in sustaining lower levels of triglycerides and cholesterol in the body. This helps in maintaining a healthy heart, smooth circulation in the blood vessels, and prevents fatal conditions like heart failure, atherosclerosis, and peripheral artery ailments.

Radiation Poisoning: Seaweed has the ability to protect the skin from damage caused by exposure to ultraviolet B radiation from sunlight. This defensive effect can be attributed to the presence of fucoxanthin in the seaweed, which aids in preventing cell damage and enhancing the survival rate of the pre-treated cells. The antioxidant effect of fucoxanthin protects the skin from photo-aging, pigmentation, and wrinkle formation, while also making it an effective component to be used in the cosmetic industry for the manufacturing of sunscreens. Various research studies conducted to investigate the radio-protective effect of seaweed extracts against the exposure to gamma radiations have shown positive results.

Protects Your Eyes: The anti-ocular inflammatory effect exerted by fucoxanthin, present in seaweed, has shown promising results in the prevention of after-cataract. This complication is also known as posterior capsule opacification which can occur after cataract surgery. Fucoxanthin is utilized in the formulation of products used in ocular implants in the cataract surgery to avoid the risk of after-cataract.

Healthier Skin: The wealth of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants in seaweed helps in keeping the skin revitalized, moisturized, and youthful. These elements guard the skin against the harmful effects of environmental pollutants and helps to slow down the skins aging process. Scientific research has made it evident that seaweed extracts contain anti-aging properties and are a useful ingredient in the manufacturing of skin care cosmetics. The anti-inflammatory properties present in seaweed are useful in treating skin rashes and wounds. The phytonutrients elevate blood flow and bring a healthy glow to the face. Seaweed wraps detoxify and cleanse the skin by expelling toxins out of the pores. Seaweed baths have also been admired among British and Irish people for ages due to their therapeutic effects.

Hair Care: The high mineral content of seaweed also aids in maintaining healthy hair. They help in strengthening the roots and shafts of hair follicles and make them thick and lustrous. Due to this beneficial effect, it has been proven valuable in the manufacturing of shampoos and hair creams.

Culinary Usage: Some seaweed has a nice flavor and is served as a delicacy in many Asian countries such as Japan, China, and Korea. Nori, Kombu, and wakame are some of the most commonly grown and used species in these countries. Famous Japanese sushi roll uses seaweed called nori as an ingredient with rice and raw fish. Seaweed such as agars and carrageenans are used in many processed food items like yogurt, health drinks, non-vegetarian dishes, and even high-quality German beer. The harvesting of seaweed is done to extract phycocolloids such as agar, carrageenan, and alginate to use them as food additives or preservatives for fish, meat dishes, and baked items.

Mother of the Groom on Zoom | Dear Annie | – Gillette News Record

Dear Annie: My son and his fiancee are getting married next month at the courthouse in the city where they live. Due to their feelings about COVID-19 and the travel involved (they live in another state), family is not invited and they will only have their two attendants.

They plan on having another ceremony for family and friends in 2022.

How are other families handling situations like these? I never thought I wouldn't be invited to my son's wedding. He is acting like it's not a big deal, and I'm trying to respect that. But I'm a little hurt. We would've traveled there even if it is just at the courthouse.

Do we give them their wedding gift now or wait, or do both? Sad Mom

Dear Sad Mom: My congratulations on your son's marriage and my sympathies that you can't be there in person to see it officiated. Perhaps your son could set up his phone to stream a live video from the courthouse that you and other friends and family members can watch to feel more part of the ceremony. As for the wedding present, it's entirely up to you to give one now or wait until the friends-and-family ceremony. Both options are equally thoughtful.

As hard as it will be not to be there in person that day, keep in mind that your son doesn't want you to be there precisely because he cares about you. And he's wise to be cautious. There are many instances of weddings, even relatively small ones, becoming hotspots for COVID-19 transmission. Take the Texas wedding in June at which at least 12 people were infected, including the 76-year-old grandfather of the groom, who ended up in the emergency room with double pneumonia, and the stepmother of the groom, who missed the births of two grandchildren because she was sick and quarantining.

Then in August, there was the Maine wedding that resulted in at least 170 cases and eight deaths. (None of the people who died had attended the wedding, but they had each been in contact with someone who did.)

While a handful of people at the courthouse would pose less risk than a large reception, it's still a risk. Plus, small guest lists have a way of multiplying: If they invited you, then they'd have to invite the bride's parents, too. Then the grandparents and siblings might want to come. And so on.

Of course, it's a huge disappointment that you won't be there when your son is legally married. Looking at the big picture, though, you've raised a conscientious young man who has found the love of his life. In a bleak year, that is blissful news.

Dear Annie: As a man nearing 40, my wife and I hit a stretch of low to no intimacy. I was always tired and had little interest. Finally, I got the nerve to visit a hormone specialist and discovered I had low testosterone. Testosterone replacement therapy has saved our marriage and turned the clock back in the bedroom. I feel like I'm in my mid-20s. It has helped tremendously with my overall mood and everyday life. If done correctly by the specialist, there are no ill effects on fertility, so having children will still be possible. Revitalized

Dear Revitalized: Thanks for the tip. I encourage anyone experiencing low sex drive to talk to their doctors to suss out the underlying issue. It can sometimes signal serious health problems.

"Ask Me Anything: A Year of Advice From Dear Annie" is out now! Annie Lane's debut book featuring favorite columns on love, friendship, family and etiquette is available as a paperback and e-book. Visit for more information. Send your questions for Annie Lane to

Should females be treated differently by male law enforcement officers? – The Record

During the George Floyd protests in New York City, a 20-year-old woman, Dounya Zayer, was left with a concussion after being aggressively pushed to the cement by a male officer, Vincent DAndraia, who was eventually charged with misdemeanor assault, criminal mischief, harassment and menacing.

Are males stronger than females, and if so, should women get treated differently by male law enforcement officers?

You might be surprised, but males are generally stronger than females due to their larger size, says Dr. Carol DeNysschen, a professor and the chair of Buffalo State College Department of Health, Nutrition, and Dietetics.

Pound for pound, there is a very small difference in muscle strength between genders. Males generally have more muscle fibers and a bigger cross sectional muscle mass.

Muscle mass is tied to testosterone levels.

In general, elevated testosterone in males produces increased muscle mass and strength compared to females, says Dr. Randal Snyder, a biology professor at Buffalo State College.

Are police officers trained to treat female and male offenders or suspects differently because of these physiological differences? According to John Reinholz, a current lecturer of criminal justice and sociology at Buffalo State College, this isnt the case.As police officers, we dont think about size or strength. Its not part of the training that we receive when making an arrest, the retired criminal investigator says.

However, there is an exception for pregnant females. Law enforcement would make sure that the person being taken into custody is treated with the utmost care. This wasnt the case in Missouri when a Kansas City police officer was caught kneeling on a pregnant woman.

When a male officer handles a female offender or suspect, and because males are generally stronger than females, what defines excessive force?

Police officers are generally allowed to use whatever force is necessary to make an arrest or defend themselves, according to Nolo.

In most jurisdictions, when a jury must decide if an officer used excessive force, it is the judge who instructs it to consider what a reasonable person with the officers knowledge would have deemed necessary under the circumstances.

The last thing in the world that I would want as a trooper or as a supervisor investigator is for force to be used, Reinholz says. We try to treat everybody with dignity and respect. Thats something that were taught from day one.

Is there a link between aggressive behavior and males and if so, is this why male officers are caught using excessive force?

Up front Ill say that there are really no anatomical things that impact aggression differences, says Dr. Dwight Hennessy, a professor and the chair of Buffalo State College Department of Psychology. Much of this is traceable to socialization differences because aggression is evident in both boys and girls early on and begin to diverge as they are socialized differently.

The different types of aggression that are deemed acceptable, according to Hennessy, vary by gender. In children, it is more socially accepted for boys to be more physically aggressive while social and relational aggression is modeled for girls.

A number of differences can account as to why male officers are more likely to be caught using excessive force. One variable could be, according to Reinholz, is that there are far more males than females in law enforcement.

As of 2018, women make up just 12.6 percent of law enforcement in the United States.How does the New York State Police Department ensure that females are treated with dignity and respect upon arrest? The use of body cameras have certainly helped, according to Reinholz, as well as the presence of female officers. However, when he was a trooper, they didnt have body cameras.

When a male trooper is arresting a female offender we will always try to make sure that somebody is with us to observe to make sure that there are no allegations of impropriety later.

In reality, males are generally stronger than females, but the question remains, what force is exactly deemed necessary when male law enforcement officers handle females?

Amy Duggar Claps Back at Troll Who Told Her to Have More Kids, Lose Weight – Us Weekly

Amy Duggar hit back at a fan who sent her a direct message telling her she needed to stop being selfish, lose weight and have more children.

Hello Amy I would just like to say your a good mom but arent you a little behind some other famous people who are having 4 babies by the time they are 20? the troll wrote in the message that Duggar, 34, shared on her Instagram account on Sunday, October 18. You only have one. Hes so cute. I think your body is fine to have more. I like you tou have a fun life but dont be selfish with your life. Pick up the pace you should have been pregnant again like yesterday. Ok gurl well if you need help losing weight I can help you. Just dm.. so much love.

Duggar posted a length response on the post, writing, Whew! Ok..Im just going to leave this here I tried so hard not to post this . But . I literally had to speak my mind! ( when have I not?) This is a message I received yesterday. I think what really got to me was the fact that this total stranger apparently knows my body so well!? and literally tells me that my body is ok to produce more childen. Ready for my rant!? Of course you are!! First off Im flabbergasted that someone would have the audacity to type these words to anyone!! I mean. Who in their right mind says I think your body is ready to pop out more kids to a total stranger?!

The singer, who welcomed son Daxton with husband Dillon King in October 2019, then continued her message to all the Karens out there.

My body has been through alot and it gave me the sweetest boy ever. Yes of course it was worth it. But I still need to heal. C- sections are no joke and vertigo is/ was very hard on me. I still get dizzy sometimes but Im getting stronger everyday, she wrote. Also. I AM TIRED. Anyone else!? This pandemic has been so rough on so many people and my business has taken a hit just like so many others. I need to be on my A game. I need to give it my all . I need to stay creative and focus on 3130 [her online clothing store]. Children are such a blessing, but I cant imagine being pregnant again right now. Id be unmotivated, emotional, stressed out and not in a good head space and thats ok to admit.

Duggar added that as a very hands on mom, she also wants to give her 12-month-old my full attention, adding, This toddler stage is so amazing and I dont want to miss a thing!

A womens body is not a factory!! Yes our bodies can do miraculous things! But I hate that phrase pop out umm. No. Its WORK. And our bodies go through alot! she continued.

The mom of one, who is the daughter of Jim Bob Duggars sister Deanna, pointed out that she is an only child, and I think I grew up just fine. So cheers to the mamas who decide to have one child!

While her reality TV star cousins from 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On might be growing their broods, Duggar wrote in conclusion that Some women are designed not to have large families. I am one of them. Too much noise, chaos, its just not for me. But kudos to those mamas who do! God gave you super human strength. Deep down even though in a way it terrifies me Id love to foster or adopt.

She ended her post by admitting that Its exhausting always being compared to other people. Im in my thirties now, away from that show and Im so over it. It just has to stop.

Amy received support from her followers, with one writing, Could not agree with you more, Amy! You do you!!

How frustrating that someone feels its okay to send you that, another wrote. We all are different and have different views and reasons for why we want more kids or if we decide we dont want any or just one. You owe no one on ounce of a explanation but I do understand that you felt you wanted to address it. I am so sorry you received that message.
