Hollywood’s new diets are all about the science

Hollywood’s new diets are all about the science | weigth loss | Scoop.it

Forget counting calories, says KatePorter, a new wave of high-tech dieting is sweeping Tinseltown.

This is a fairly in-depth mass media article from the Irish newspaper The Independent. The slant is that it discusses diets that are supposedly backed by "science". (As opposed to what kind of diet? The kind that's backed by sorcery?) The three diets the author discusses are the Schwarzbein Principle, the Rosedale Diet, and the O2 Diet. The first two are basically low carb/high fat diets (with some differences) but that's the basics. The O2 Diet is focused on anti-oxidants. I'm not sold on this because anti-oxidants aren't important if you don't eat sugar (carbs). Oxidation in the blood is done in the presence of oxygen which is supplied by the sugar. If you don't eat sugar, you don't need the anti-oxidants. And your body's weight is controlled by insulin, and anti-oxidants don't have anything to do with that.

All in all, this is a pretty reasonable article, but the author is basically parrotting what the diet "experts" are telling her. She has no idea how to evaluate their diets at all.

Read the article and see if you can see the problems (and benefits) of each.

Turmeric is one of nature's greatest gifts

Turmeric is one of nature's greatest gifts

 

(NaturalNews) Turmeric has enjoyed a great reputation within India for many generations now. Best known as one of the ingredients used in curry dishes, it's also responsible for ballpark mustard's yellow color. It's been utilized for quite some time in Indian and Chinese societies for the anti-inflammatory results it provides when dealing with a wide array of medical conditions. Turmeric also shows great promise when faced with the task of fighting various forms of cancer or other illnesses such as cystic fibrosis.

Turmeric, also known as curcuma longa, naturally grows in the very warm regions of South Asia. It requires a lot of rain and constant temperatures ranging between 20°C and 30°C in order to bloom and prosper. Its main active component is called curcumin, which has a somewhat bitter, peppery taste combined with a mustard smell.

Acute and subchronic toxicity as well as mutagenic evaluation of essential oil from turmeric (Curcuma longa L). [Food Chem Toxicol. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI | weigth loss | Scoop.it

The present study investigated the acute, subchronic and genotoxicity of turmeric essential oil (TEO) from Curcuma longa L. Acute administration of TEO was done as single dose up to 5 g of TEO per kg body weight and subchronic toxicity study for thirteen weeks was done by daily oral administration of TEO at doses 0.1, 0.25 and 0.5 g/kg b.wt. in Wistar rats. There were no mortality, adverse clinical signs or changes in body weight; water and food consumption during acute as well as subchronic toxicity studies. Indicators of hepatic function such as aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine amino transferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) were unchanged in treated animals compared to untreated animals. Oral administration of TEO for 13 weeks did not alter total cholesterol, triglycerides, markers of renal function, serum electrolyte parameters and histopathology of tissues. TEO did not produce any mutagenicity to Salmonella typhimurium TA-98, TA-100, TA-102 and TA-1535 with or without metabolic activation. Administration of TEO to rats (1 g/kg b.wt.) for 14 days did not produce any chromosome aberration or micronuclei in rat bone marrow cells and did not produce any DNA damage as seen by comet assay confirming the non toxicity of TEO.

How To Lose Weight Naturally

How To Lose Weight Naturally | weigth loss | Scoop.it

The most common topic for discussion in most gatherings these days is usually: how to lose weight naturally. Obesity is an ever growing problem in most modern societies, but people are so scared of the side effects caused by weight loss pills that they keep looking for ways of how to lose weight naturally. In this present era of television and internet one comes across countless products claiming to help you shed your excess fat, but most of these products are just too fantastic and their claims are unsubstantiated, unauthentic. The good old formula of regular exercise and healthy eating habits still holds value, no doubt. If you can sweat it out in a gym five times a week, or jog a few kilometers on a jogging track or the never-ending black roads; if you can follow a strict diet routine, including more fibers and proteins and avoid fatty, unhealthy stuff, you can maintain a slim and trim body your friends would envy. However, modern day strenuous lifestyle often doesn’t permit you the luxury of time to spend those long hours in the gym or on the jogging track, and the unavoidable late-night parties and all the garbage being served there don’t help either.

It still is important to find an effective way of how to lose weight naturally, and a slim tea can be an excellent tool. It is based on scientific principles and there is nothing mystical about it. A slim tea is rich in antioxidants that boost metabolism and speed up the process of fat burning, thus helping you shed that obstinate fat. Modern research shows that a weight loss brew like green tea has high levels of polyphenols and caffeine that induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation. Its regular consumption can help you lose up to a whopping seventy calories a day.

Several ayurveda slimming teas are also available in the market now. Ayurveda is a very old system of medicine and ancient ayurvedic scriptures have described several herbs that are very useful in treating obesity. A weight loss tea like Dr. Tea is made from natural herbs like Nagarmotha (Cyperus Rotundus), Baibidang (Embelia Ribes), Tagar (Valeriana Wallichii), and Triphala (literally meaning mixture of three different fruits in Sanskrit) etc. Herbs like Nagarmotha are excellent corrective and remover of endo-toxins and have a lipolytic action to mobilize fats from the Adipose tissues helping you shed fat. These herbs are natural and cause little or no side effects.

Obesity brings the threat of many life-threatening and debilitating diseases and it’s imperative to keep a slim and fit body. A slimming tea is definitely one of the options to lose weight naturally without the risk of any harmful side-effects.

What are processed meats?
Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and nearly all meat found in prepared frozen meals. Processed meats are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic (linked to promote and cause cancer) ingredient known as sodium nitrate. Sodium nitrate is primarily used as a colour fixer by meat companies to make the packaged meats look bright red and fresh. Monosodium glutamate is also added on a regular basis to enhance the savoury flavour.

Cocoa may help aging brain function

Cocoa may help aging brain function | weigth loss | Scoop.it
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 23 (UPI) -- People who ate high or moderate levels of cocoa flavanols for two months improved significantly in some thinking assessment tests, a U.S. food expert says.

"A study in the journal Hypertension found elderly people with mild cognitive impairment given dietary flavanols from chocolate did better on cognition tests," Phil Lempert, a food industry analyst, trend watcher and creator of supermarketguru.com, said in a statement. "They also experienced a decrease in insulin resistance, which helps regulate blood sugar, as well as improvements in blood pressure, compared with those who consumed only small amounts."

Flavanols are a type of flavonoid -- the phytochemical associated with the many health benefits of cocoa, Lempert said.

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Health Benefits of Turmeric | weigth loss | Scoop.it

Turmeric, known in the western world for its use in Indian cooking, is usually referred to as the “Queen of Spices”. It comes down from the dry ground cause of Curcuma longa, typically found in India and Indonesia. It features a deep yellow-orange tinge, from which it earns certainly one of its nicknames, “Indian saffron”. Health benefits of turmeric include antiinflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, and antioxidants. In India and China it's been used medicinally for centuries. In the Western world, however, turmeric is better known for its culinary prowess. Turmeric´s health advantages are well-known and documented.

 

1. Turmeric and Liver Diseases

 

The liver helps by detoxifying your blood with the production of enzymes. These enzymes break up and eliminate the toxins found the body. Taking a turmeric supplement or using turmeric recipes boost the production of these vital enzymes, thus increasing liver function. Studies conducted on rats says enzyme production increases by 14% within a fortnight of taking turmeric.

 

2. Turmeric For Arthritis

 

Turmeric isn’t something many people think of when dealing with arthritis or pain. Recent studies show sufferers should think about turmeric for arthritis because it is a powerful anti-oxidant. Like other anti-oxidants, turmeric activly works to destroy free radicals in your body that are responsible for damaging body cells.

 

3. Turmeric and Wounds

 

Being an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, turmeric activly works to heal wounds, cuts along with other skin injuries. Using a saucepan, boil coconut oil and give a small amount of turmeric to it. Mix the 2 together, turn the stove off. When it's no longer too hot to the touch, use a cotton swab to apply a few of the mixture to the wound. Saving the additional oil in an airtight container enables you to use it in the future without needing to feel the boiling process again.

 

4. Turmeric and Alzheimers

 

Brain inflation is suspected to become one of the leading causes of Alzheimer’s disease. Studies completed with turmeric have shown that one from the major turmeric health benefits is helpings to avoid Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can help to prevent or delay the start of this ruthless disease. It's believed that turmeric blocks producing IL-2 protein, which is known to destroy the protective sheath found round the nerves.

 

5. Turmeric and Coronary disease

 

Unhealthy cholesterol levels are the responsible for most cardiovascular disease. When cholesterol oxidizes, it accumulates on the walls of cells. Turmeric contains vitamin B6, which regulates homo-cysteine levels. Homo-cysteine is directly accountable for damaging body cells. Through interaction using the liver, turmeric lowers the levels of cholesterol in the body, which aides in preventing most heart diseases.

 

6. Turmeric as an Anti-Inflammatory

 

Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties don’t just help against deadly diseases. Turmeric also keeps your defense mechanisms strong against colds, flu and coughs.These are merely the benefits that studies have revealed there are undoubtedly many more turmeric health advantages yet to be discovered.

 

7. Turmeric and Diabetes

 

Turmeric, together with many other spices, helps to overcome your insulin levels. If you consume a heavy sugary or white bread snack or meal, including turmeric will reduce how extreme your insulin response is going to be. Turmeric will by no means totally get rid of the sudden sugar intake shock in your body. Limiting sugar consumption and eating whole grain products is the best approach to maintaining balanced levels.

 

8. Health advantages of Turmeric

 

The health benefits of turmeric are plenty of. If you’re considering using a turmeric supplement to attain those benefits you need to know things to look for in a supplement. A turmeric supplement ought to be standardized turmeric curcumin 95%. This means 95% from the supplement consists of curcumin. This is the a part of turmeric which provides its health advantages.

9. Turmeric Side Effects

 

Turmeric is spicy and therefore can cause heartburn and improve your body temperature. Nausea, dizziness and stomach cramps are possible negative effects. These turmeric side effects are more inclined if you don’t consume turmeric with food.

 

10. Turmeric Supplement Dosage

 

Knowing all of the turmeric health benefits is useless should you don’t know what is the correct turmeric dosage to make use of. Using the correct turmeric dosage is important to maximizing its benefits.
