Who is Debby Knox?

Debby Knox is a longtime news anchor at WISH-TV and WTTV in Indianapolis, Indiana. She joined the station as a noon news anchor in 1980 and was a longtime co-anchor with Mike Ahern on the station’s evening newscasts. After 33 years as a familiar personality in local broadcasting, Knox, 59, announced her retirement in 2013.

On January 1, 2015; Debby came out of retirement to co-anchor the new CBS affiliate WTTV’s new evening newscasts from 5:00-6:30 and 11:00 p.m. with longtime WXIN news anchor Bob Donaldson

Knox said she has been happy in her retirement, which allowed traveling, her involvement in a film documentary about nuns in Oldenburg, Ind., and even a powerlifting fitness regimen.

“It’s kind of a restart for me, obviously, because I was gone for a year,” Knox said. “But it also feels really comfortable. This is an exciting place to be. It’s on the upswing, moving forward and progressive. It makes me feel young and into it again.”

Toward the end of her time with WISH, Debby had a difficult time with image consultants. There is a certain expectation of how you look and dress. It’s a part of news that is so unimportant. Long-term it has a deleterious effect.

Debby says the secret to feeling young is exercise.Exercise makes you feel younger and relaxes you, and I think being curious and spending time around younger people helps keep you young too.

Debby Knox lost her weight very quickly, 45 pounds from the end of May, 2013 till now. Knox has been kind enough to share the weight loss diet recipes to answer so many letters she has received regarding her weight loss.

In 1987 Debby tried the weight watchers program with limited success

Back in 1987 Debby Knox started to find her clothes getting too tight so she joined into Weight Watcher weight loss program. Initial success of 20 pounds weight loss were achieved but ‘then pounds came back and then some.

Debby Knox’s successful weight loss in 2013

Debby Knox’s successful weight loss restarted again when her mother looked at her and said “I saw your cousin Gay Lynn the other day. She’s gained quite a bit of weight, but I told her you had too.” Debby was determined to lose weight by following these 4 simple steps below.

1. Hire a personal coach or find a “workout pal”

Debby hired the 27-year-old Jeremy Brost as her personal coach at the end of May of 2013. The accountability and honesty he demanded made me get on board.

Lessons learned: always find a workout pal or join groups with people who encourage each other and do workouts with each other.

2. Follow Workout routine

The next step for Debby was to follow a strict workout routine with her personal coach. First, they worked out in Debby’s basement for just an hour a week. Then they followed a straight forward 40 minute cardio workouts at the Health and Recreation Centre at Butler University. Debby also occasionally rode her bike during in this period.

The cardio workout in the Butler University centre included the following sessions:

        • Elliptical: 10 minutes
        • Run/walk: 10 minutes
        • Rowing: 10 minutes
        • Elliptical: 10 minutes

Debby’s plan was to lose 20 pounds, but the result was much better than she thought, so far she has lost 45 pounds and she is expecting to lose a further 5 pounds.

Lessons learned: strictly follow a 40 minute straight forward cardio workout

3. Change to healthy diet plan

Following Jeremy’s recommendations, Debby changed to a healthy diet plan. Here is Debby Knox’s healthy diet plan basics:

        • Ensure the amount of protein to close to 100 grams per day, essential to maintain the active cardio workouts. The benefits of taking 100 grams protein per day is to get necessary protein taken in according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention guideline, (amount of protein for women between the ages of 19 and 70 is 46 grams, take in more when actively doing workouts) another advantage is that proteins keep you from being hungry by decreasing sugar cravings.Take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2.2 to get your weight in kilograms. Then multiply that number by 1.3 (1.3 is the value for an active individual, 0.8 for not very active and 1.8 for extremely active). The number you get is the amount of protein grams you can take in a day.
        • No added sugar, high sugar content foods or pre prepared meals
        • Cut out breads, pasta and potatoes

Lessons learned: up your amount of protein, No sugar, bread, pasta, or potatoes

4. Use weight loss app

Debby Knox used MyFitnessPal, the weight loss app to track her calories kept her aware of number changes. It calculates how many calories you need to lose safely (1-2 pounds per week), gives me an accurate count of calories burned, and it has a splendid graph (which you should look at daily) to show progress.

          • Tracks steps, distance, calories burned and stairs climbed
          • Monitor how long and how well you sleep
          • Wakes you (and not your partner) with a silent alarm
          • Syncs automatically to your computer or select smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth 4.0
          • Set goals, view progress and earn badges

Lessons learned: Use weight loss app

Diet for your DNA: Novel nutrition plan sparks debate around data protection

Personalised diet plans will not be widely accepted by the public until regulations are in place to protect information about our DNA, new research has shown.

Led by Newcastle University, the Food4Me project is a EUR9 million EU project investigating the potential of nutrigenomics – a relatively new branch of nutrition which looks at how the food we eat affects the behaviour of our genes.

Using DNA, experts are able to look at not just the usual factors such as age, sex, BMI and , but also the way in which each individual’s genes interact with the food we eat. This in turn enables them to create a bespoke nutrition plan.

Research is on-going, but early indicators suggest the technology could offer a vital tool in the fight against various lifestyle-linked diseases such as obesity, heart and Type II diabetes.

However, a study by the Newcastle-led team and published today in the online journal PLOS ONE, suggests that despite the potential benefits of nutrigenomics, people’s reluctance to hand over personal data is likely to prevent widespread uptake of the system.

Study lead Professor Lynn Frewer, Professor of Food Society in the School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development at Newcastle University, explains: “There’s an assumption in many communities that people are risk averse to food technologies such as GM and nutrigenomics.

“But actually, we found the opposite. The people we questioned could really see the benefits of this approach but said they were yet to be convinced that it would be worth the risk of handing over data about their DNA.

“Nutrigenomics has the potential to be the next big thing in our fight against lifestyle-linked diseases, particularly if it becomes available on the NHS.”

Poor nutrition contributes to the incidence of many diseases. It has been estimated that approximately 80% of cases of cardiac disease, stroke, Type II diabetes and 40% of cancers could be avoided through improved lifestyle, including those related to diet.

Above and beyond this, an individual’s predisposition to certain diseases based on genetic variation will also play a major role and in turn influence what constitutes an ‘optimal diet’.

The mapping of the human genome in 2000 introduced the possibility of individualised medicine, including personalised nutrition and the field of “nutrigenomics” emerged – examining the relationship between and gene expression.

Questioning 9,381 participants from nine European countries (Germany, Greece, Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, Norway, and the UK) the team were able to investigate the psychological factors influencing people’s willingness to adopt a personalised diet plan.

They found protection of consumers’ genetic data was a key limiting factor, particularly as there are only a handful of companies currently offering the service and these are run on a commercial basis.

“Guidelines around fat, sugar, alcohol and other foods are based on averages and they work very well – but they are just a guide,” explains Professor Frewer.

“The problem is that we are all unique so, for example, one woman’s ability to metabolise sugar might be wildly different from another’s, even though on the outside they are both 50 years old, of similar height and weight and exercise regularly.

“The difference is in their genes and with we can start to delve down into these differences and tailor dietary plans for the individual. It’s incredibly exciting but we need to get the regulations in place first if it is going to make an impact on public health.”

Whole30 Diet: Could It Work For You?

By ABC News

ABC News’ Juju Chang and Matt Knox report:

The hottest new trend for shedding extra pounds quickly includes one surprising no: no stepping on the scale.

“So many people are so obsessed with that number on the scale,” said Melissa Hartwig, co-founder of Whole30.  “The scale will blind you to all the amazing progress that you’re seeing in your medical condition.”

Hartwig and her husband, Dallas Hartwig, both certified sports nutritionists, created the Whole30 program in 2009 and co-authored the New York Times bestselling book “It Starts With Food.”  The Whole30 program, they say, is aimed at resetting your body’s reaction to food.

On the 30-day plan, gone are any food that cannot be hunted or gathered, mimicking the Paleo diet or caveman diets that exclude post-agricultural foods.  So, gone are grains like rice and wheat, beans, soy, dairy, alcohol, sugar and processed foods. What you can eat on the plan are fruits, vegetables and protein.

The key to the diet is slowly reintroducing the banned foods to your diet to see how your body reacts to gluten or dairy or sugar.

“We’re not asking you to eat like this for the rest of your life 100 percent,” said Hartwig.  “We’re saying, take 30 days, learn about yourself, how you interact with food and then create a plan that works for you based on what you’ve learned for the rest of your life.”

Ashley Reeves, a 30-year-old mother of three from Utah, says she started the program when she didn’t have the time or energy to get back into shape.

“I had done a few healthy eating things and I just wasn’t, you know, losing the baby weight and I was getting pretty frustrated,” Reeves said.

When Reeves followed the program last year, she says, she lost 16 pounds in the first 30 days without even working out.

“The first week I’d say is pretty rough because your body is just kind of like purging all of these things you’ve been eating for years,” Reeves said.  “But more than anything, my results were measured in energy.

“I felt amazing,” Reeves added, saying she lost another 10 pounds when she tried the diet again more recently.

Reeves says she is able to “feel better” and be “more focused” after doing Whole30, although some dietitians have voiced concerns about eliminating food groups in one’s diet.

“When you start eliminating food groups like dairy, legumes and whole grains, you start to miss out on important nutrients like calcium and vitamin D, B vitamins, fiber and antioxidants,” New York City-based registered dietitian Lisa Drayer said.

Over 1000 UT students sign petition to stop mandatory meal plan – WBIR

(WBIR-Knoxville) An effort to stop meal plan changes at the University of Tennessee has gained momentum, with over 1,000 students signing an online petition.

Robert Naylor, a senior, started the petition after hearing the university will be requiring all freshman living on campus to purchase a meal plan. Under the changes, which are set to start in the fall of 2015, any other student taking six credit hours or more will be required to purchase $300 Dining Dollars.

“I knew there was this much outrage. I knew there was this many students who were already upset about the issue. So I’m glad the petition was able to reach that many people,” said Naylor.

As of Thursday evening, the petition on moveon.org had 1,023 signatures, including commuters and members of the Greek community.

One signer commented that her sorority already requires members to purchase a meal plan through the chapter house, adding that she can’t afford both.

“I started the petition as a way for students to voice their concerns. A lot of people have issues with being forced to pay for something they don’t want,”said Naylo. “And we have a lot of non-traditional students on campus.”

“It’s going to hurt a lot of students, like older students that have spouses or kids. It’s going to hurt people that are on some type of diet,” said Nadine Majaj, a senior. “This is our money and as a student we should have a say on what we want to spend it on, whether we want to spend it on Dining Dollars or food at the grocery store.”

Majaj said a lot of students are talking about the changes. While she will graduate this year, she says other students shouldn’t be forced to dish out cash for a mandatory meal plan.

“After freshman year you’re ready to be financially responsible and kind of make your own budget for your food, for your gas, for your fun, so it kind of takes one of the things of the college experience away, that kind of teaches you to be a grownup and be out in the real world on your own,” said Majaj.

“I’ve heard a lot of people talking about this. Most people are upset about it for sure,” said Alexandra Disterdick, a freshman. “I don’t see the point in doing that because honestly they’re going to give you the money back anyways if you don’t use it.”

The University of Tennessee said if students do not use the $300 Dining Dollars, it can be fully refunded via check, or rolled over to become “All Star” dollars, which can be used at Cumberland Avenue restaurants or vending facilities on campus that sell books, supplies, and apparel.

In an emailed statement Thursday, Karen Simens, Director of Media and Internal Relations, said: “Because the plan dollars are refundable, it will be up our Dining Services facilities to earn those dollars from our students every semester. They will strive to do this by having the most convenient locations and by offering the largest variety of dining and snack options that best fit our students’ lifestyles.”

Simens also reiterated the changes won’t take effect until fall 2015, when more dining options will be open, with more options to follow in 2016.

10News reached out the president of the Student Government Association, Kelsey Keny. She said she met with administrators Thursday and suggested compromises.

“We’ve been hearing concerns from some students who don’t agree with the concept of mandatory dining dollars. Overall, there are mixed opinions around campus, and administrators really are still listening to what students have are saying,” said Keny.

Simens said the changes do not need a vote to take effect, since they are part of the 2015 budget policy.
