Weight loss: Cut THIS from your diet plan now to lose over a stone in SIX WEEKS

Scientists wrote: “A very low carbohydrate diet is more effective than a low fat diet for short-term weight loss and, over 6 months, is not associated with deleterious effects on important cardiovascular risk factors in healthy women.”

A graph from the study showed that in on week they lost 10 lbs.

In six weeks they has lost an impressive 18 lbs, or 1st 2 lbs.

This is down to the fact that eating less sugars and status, or carbs, lowered insulin.

New Diet For Health Ad Campaign From Atkins Appeals To Women To Cut The Sugars

Atkins Nutritionals launches a new ad campaign series this month that targets both the classic Atkins Program weight loss seeker (who typically wants to lose 40 plus pounds) and is a female 35-54 years of age. Scott Parker, Atkins’ chief marketing officer says the bigger opportunity is to reach those who want to eat healthier and consume fewer sugars and carbs – men and women 25-44 years old and want to drop ten pounds. A group he estimates is four times larger than the classic Atkins customer.

Robert Atkins MD and Cardiologist first appeared on my WOR Radio program on in the late eighties; a sole voice in the nutrition space preaching the benefits of a high-protein, low-carb diet. His first book, Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution: The High Calorie Way to Stay Thin Forever published in 1972, spent five years on the New York Times best seller list and in various editions according to his biography sold greater than 15 million copies and put him on a path to publish a plethora of books and cookbooks all touting his high-protein regimen. Atkins came under severe criticism from other researchers and physicians for not having research studies to support his claims; including Dean Ornish MD and nutrition researcher who touted the opposite – that a low-protein high-carb diet could reverse heart disease.

I interviewed Atkins and Ornish on another WOR Radio program together and they debated the issue – it was like a Jerry Springer match-up about nutrition and heart disease and both left the program declaring victory and calling into question the others’ diet scheme. Atkins died on April 17, 2003.

Parker told me by phone this morning that “there are over 80 studies supporting Atkins’ claims” with the most recent published on August 23, 2017 by the University of Florida, UF Health and The Institute on Aging, Department of Aging an Geriatric Research which reviewed 38 popular diets, then whittled down the number to seven which had been evaluated in clinical trials that met strict criteria set by researchers, and then found two that had three or more trials: Atkins and The Zone. The Atkins Diet had the most number of trials – ten, and nine out of the ten according to the research report “demonstrated clinically meaningful short-term weight loss, and six of eight long-term Atkins clinical trials demonstrated long-term weight loss”.

Parker told me that registered dietitians have told him that Atkins’ program is now vindicated, although they are a bit slower than he would like to embrace the diet plan.

The ad campaign, which will play on national cable and syndicated networks has a budget of over $10 million; and focuses on a single message. His goal is to drop a “sugar bomb” and educate people that they consume way too many sugars and carbs. He estimates the average American eats around 300 grams of carbs a day and Atkins Nutritionals says that number should be about a third of that: just 100 grams. Parker says that Atkins’ mission is to change the arc of health care today by lowering the growing incidence of diabetes. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines recommends that Americans get 45 to 65 percent of calories from carbs; about 130 grams per day based on a 2,000 calories per day intake.

Science says eating six meals a day will help you lose weight and …

We’ve long believed the secret to weight loss is limiting our intake of food, but it’s time to crack out the champers and celebrate because new research has revealed a way you can double the number of times you eat in a day, and still lose weight.

According to a new study carried out by the Agricultural University of Athens, eating six meals a day as opposed to three can help you maintain your healthy eating plan by quashing your hunger and stabilising your blood sugar levels. Music. To. Our. Ears.

Researchers on the study assessed 47 clinically obese people who either had pre-diabetes or type two diabetes, and split the participants into two groups. The first group was asked to follow a special six-month diet which involved eating six smaller meals a day for the first three months, and then eating three standard-sized meals a day for the remaining three months. The other group did the same but the other way round.

What the researchers were able to discover was that during their period of eating smaller but more frequent meals, participants had significantly better blood sugar control (so lower blood sugar levels) than the ones who ate three more substantial meals per day.

But the secret is, according to lead researcher Dr Emilia Papakonstantinou, to ensure your intake of calories remains the same as your three-meals-per-day diet. “These results suggest that increased frequency of meals, consumed at regular times, may be a useful tool for… those who are reluctant or unsuccessful dieters,” she said.

By eating more regularly, the participants in the study reported feeling less hungry when eating six meals a day, preventing them from snacking on foods that could throw off their healthy eating plans.

Six meals a day it is, then. Just, you know, make sure they’re relatively healthy ones.

Weight loss: How to lose weight fast in three simple steps and NEVER feel hungry

Losing weight fast can seem like a question of luck, but there are in fact scientifically proven ways to shed the pounds quickly.

And even better, these three methods won’t leave dieters feeling hungry, as they are designed to reduce appetite and keep dieters full.

The first, and most important trick is to cut back on sugars and starches, as these foods stimulate secretion of insulin – insulting is the main fat storage hormone in the body.

When insulin levels are reduced, the body starts burning more fat instead of carbs.

Diet Doc’s ‘JumpStart Diet’ Leads Patients to Rapid Weight Loss and Reduced Blood Pressure Levels

Jackson, MS, Sept. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to the National Institute of Health, high blood pressure or hypertension is a major health problem in the U.S., that affects more than 50 million people. Although high blood pressure is highly common, steps taken to manage blood pressure levels are often insufficient. Researchers agree that while blood pressure can be lowered in hypertensive individuals, medications such as statins and atenolol are inconsistent with regards to their effectiveness, can be very expensive, and in some cases, they may induce unfortunate side effects which create additional health problems.

Experts note that the most effective blood pressure lowering method is through behavioral interventions such as changes in diet, exercise and weight loss. For overweight individuals, losing excess pounds is highly recommended in order to make significant progress. Physical activity is equally as important, “Exercise alone is associated with reductions of approximately 3.5 and 2.0mm Hg in systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP), respectively,” reports NIH. Given that managing weight is so important in fighting hypertension, many people will attempt to adhere to fad diets. However, these diets typically do not offer much by way of nutrition, nor do they ultimately produce long-lasting weight loss that will help blood pressure levels stabilize over time. Adopting a medically supervised, low-sodium, low fat diet (see: JumpStart Diet) for fast weight loss that will set the stage for long-term weight maintenance is the best approach to keeping blood pressure under control.

If you’re suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension) and are looking for a way to safely and quickly lose weight, Diet Doc’s JumpStart diet will eliminate the frustrating waiting period to generate rapid results. The JumpStart diet is doctor-supervised and tailored to your unique health needs and personal goals.

Healthy Diet, Exercise Improve Asthma Control in Non-Obese Patients

MILAN — Eating a healthy diet and engaging in regular exercise are lifestyle interventions commonly recommended to obese asthma patients to keep their asthma under control. Now research presented here suggests that they can also help normal-weight patients breathe easier.

Non-obese asthma patients who engaged in eight weeks of both supervised exercise and dietary intervention in the randomized, controlled trial scored 50% better than participants randomized to no intervention in the study for self-reported asthma control and quality of life.

Participants randomized to the individual exercise or dietary interventions scored, on average, about 30% better than controls, but these differences did not reach statistical significance.

Study lead author Louise L. Toennesen, MD, PhD, of Bispebjerg University Hospital in Copenhagen, told MedPage Today that only patients in the combined diet-and-exercise intervention group showed statistically significant differences in asthma control and quality of life compared to the control group.

“Neither exercise nor diet seemed to be more important than the other,” she said.

The study included 149 non-obese, adult patients randomized to one of four groups: an exercise group, a diet group, an exercise and diet group, and controls (usual care).

Toennesen explained that the exercise training component consisted of three supervised spinning classes a week for eight weeks, combining high-intensity activity interspersed with lower-intensity exercise.

Participants who took part in the dietary intervention ate a high protein, low glycemic index diet during the eight-week trial, that included at least six portions of fruits and vegetables per day.

A total of 125 patients remained in the study for the full eight weeks.

Pre- and post-intervention, asthma control, asthma-related quality of life, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), and fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) levels were measured.

Participants in the exercise plus diet group showed significant reductions in asthma control and a significant improvement in asthma-related quality of life, compared to control patients (mean change -0.6, 95% CI -0.1 to -0.2, P0.01 and 0.5, 95% CI 0.1-0.9, P0.01, respectively)

No significant changes were observed between the two groups in the objective measures of asthma control, FEV1 airway responsiveness and FeNO.

There were no adverse events related to the high-low intensity training, suggesting that this type of cardiovascular exercise is safe in this setting, Toennesen said.

The researchers concluded that clinicians caring for adult patients with asthma should include discussions about the benefits of diet and exercise in their patient consultations.

“We know that many patients are interested in whether they can improve their asthma control with exercise and a healthy diet,” she said. “Our research suggests that people with asthma should be encouraged to eat a healthy diet and take part in physical activity.”
