    Eating junk food can trigger aches or make people more sensitive to pain — even if they are healthy and slim, a study suggests. Certain fats in fast food can cause cholesterol to build up in the arteries leading to inflammation, which leads to joint ache and makes people more sensitive to pain. It is well documented that being obese or eating junk over a long time can lead to chronic pain, but now researchers say even just a few off meals may cause damage. A study of mice found saturated fat in the blood binds to nerve cell receptors that leads to inflammation and mimics the symptoms of nerve damage. The process was observed after just eight weeks on a high fat diet which did not have enough calories to make the rodents overweight.  Dr Michael Burton, assistant professor of neuroscience at UT Dallas, said: 'This study indicates you don’t need diabetes; you don't need need a pathology or injury at all. 'Eating a high-fat diet for a short period of time is enough — a diet similar to...

    Most of us do it every single day. And it’s one of the ultimate ways to stay fit and healthy without much effort – or cost. Putting one foot in front of the other and hitting your 10k steps really does do wonders for your wellbeing, but now power walking is in the spotlight. 5Power walking does wonders for your physical and mental wellbeingCredit: Getty Images New research claims that walking fast is the key to living longer – focusing on the pace and power of your steps, not just the number you rack up. The study, published in two medical journals, found walking with intensity reduces numerous major health concerns, from dementia, heart disease and cancer to premature death. Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Leicester have discovered power walkers have a life expectancy up to 20 years higher than slow walkers. The NHS also credits power walking with helping slash depression, burn calories and reduce obesity (depending on your speed, you can burn up to 400 calories per 30 minutes!) – and a brisk 10-minute daily...

    A new study has revealed one simple low-effort exercise can dramatically boost your metabolism and burn fat - while sitting at your desk.  Researchers from the University of Houston discovered doing 'soleus push ups' continuously, even while sitting, can speed up the metabolism and improve blood glucose regulation.  The study explained the soleus muscle is a large muscle that runs along the back of the lower leg and is essential for standing, walking and running.  Scientists recently discovered working out the soleus muscle simply by repeatedly lifting your heel while sitting down is more effective at regulating blood sugar levels than exercise, weight loss and intermittent fasting - which is good news for leg twitchers.  Researchers have discovered doing 'soleus push ups', working the powerful muscle along the back of the leg, can improve metabolic health and burn fat Popular neuroscientist Dr Andrew Huberman spoke about the study on his podcast Huberman Lab saying the research is 'very exciting' for those who want to improve their health but don't have time to move and exercise as much as they'd like.  How do...
    As COVID-era restrictions relax and shortstaffed airlines welcome back travelers, unforeseen flight mishaps can often lead to financial compensation - with DailyMail.com now revealing how exactly you can claim your cash.  The new comes days after an Australian-American political pundit who found herself 'sandwiched' between two overweight passengers on an American Airlines flight last week claimed a $150 voucher for her trouble, after complaining to flight staff. With that said, issues such as delays, cancellations, and lost baggage - which have been rife as airlines struggle to retain workers in their return to pre-pandemic operations - could yield vouchers and even actual green, if you know who to ask. Cancelled Flights    In the event of a cancellation, for instance, be sure to turn down a voucher, as under federal law you are entitled to a full cash refund. Unlike the European Union, the United States does not have any regulations that protect passengers if their flight is called off- however, if you are flying to any where in Europe, you could earn a voucher of up to $700 on top of your refunded ticket....
    Taking a dip in cold water may help cut ‘bad’ body fat in men and even decrease the risk of diabetes, according to a new study. The study was published in the International Journal of Circumpolar Health, a peer-reviewed journal. Source: SciShow/YouTube Many of the 104 studies that the authors analyzed show that there were significant effects from cold water swimming, including brown fat, also known as ‘good fat’, which can help burn calories. According to the study’s authors, being in cold water may help protect against obesity and cardiovascular disease. The review was not conclusive on the overall health benefits of cold-water bathing, say the team of review authors from UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and the University Hospital of North Norway. Most of the available research involved a small number of participants and mostly only male participants. It is still unclear if people who swim or take dips in cold water are healthier. “From this review, it is clear that there is increasing scientific support that voluntary exposure to cold water may have some beneficial...
    Even slim people with type 2 diabetes can reverse their condition through a soup and shakes diet, researchers revealed today. And they only need to lose 10 per cent of their body weight, experts believe.  This is the equivalent of someone with a 13st (83kg) frame losing 1st 4lbs (8kg).  Newcastle University scientists say the findings, presented at a medical conference in Sweden, support the idea that everyone has a 'personal fat threshold'.  Type 2 diabetes affects roughly 4.5million people in Britain and 37million in the US. Although heavily driven by obesity, roughly 15 per cent of all sufferers are of 'normal weight' (stock) Professor Roy Taylor, a world renowned diabetes expert and lead researcher, said: 'If you develop type 2 diabetes, you simply have more fat inside your body than you can cope with, even if apparently slim. 'This excess fat spills into your liver and pancreas stopping normal function and causing type 2 diabetes.  'You only need an extra half gram of fat in the pancreas to prevent normal insulin production.

Thousands of women are finding that a solution to weight gain can be achieved without restricting anything from their diet. By adding two capsules from the Better Body Co Provitalize Probiotics range into their morning routine, real people across America have found that weight that they’d previously tried to shift through diet and exercise drops off.  This is because a lot of weight gain after a certain age is caused by hormonal factors as women enter the menopause. Gut health changes as a result of a decrease in certain hormones  can lead to weight gain, bloating and even be a reason behind hot flashes. Better Body Co Provitalize Probiotic Supplements Provitalize was conceived after research indicated the root cause of unwanted menopause symptoms usually has to do with poor gut health – this includes sudden and unexpected weight gain, persistent bloating after meals, hot flashes, and sleep issues. ...
    TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly.'  The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking.  Many people began posting videos of themselves with and without the filter, as the song 1, 2, 3 by Sofia Reyes played in the background.

    JUST a few minutes of daily intense exercise can turn flabby adults into “fat-burning machines”, experts claim. A major analysis found short bursts of explosive activity are much better at ridding people of their excess lard than steady exercise. 1Just a few minutes of intense exercise daily is enough to supercharge fat burningCredit: Getty - Contributor Interval training was found to burn an extra 0.03g of fat per minute, compared to moderate workouts such as jogging, swimming or playing football. Experts claim a few weekly sessions can help turbocharge weight-loss. And it also further boosts fat loss during regular exercise by an extra 0.13g per minute. Lead researcher Professor Zeljko Pedisic from Victoria University in Melbourne, said: “If that stubborn body fat isn't going away, consider adding High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to your exercise routine. “A few minutes of intense exercise daily or several times a week, is enough to supercharge fat burning. “HIIT is among the most popular types of workouts.

    Nearly half a century has passed since Jaclyn Smith – aka Kelly Garrett in Charlie’s Angels – emerged from a swimming pool in a white bikini to pick up a ringing phone. ‘Hello?’ she answered huskily. ‘It’s Charlie, angel,’ boomed the baritone voice on the other end of the line. ‘Time to go to work.’  Smith’s face broke into a smile and in that moment her life changed. Today, everything about the opening clip of that first episode looks retro – from the clunky phone to the latticed poolside chair to the white bathing cap, which Smith removes to shake out her hair. Everything, except possibly Smith herself. She appears in the drawing room of her white hilltop mansion in Los Angeles looking like she’s just stepped off set.

    HOLIDAY season is well and truly here and you might have noticed many people are upping their fitness regimes. While it's key to love the skin you're in, some people feel more confident when they have lost weight. 1With many people planning for their summer holidays many people have upped their training regimes in order to feel confidentCredit: Getty For many, this means being in a calorie deficit and burning off more calories through activity than you consume through food. One personal trainer and nutritionist explained that the key to getting trim is an 80 per cent focus on food - and a 20 per cent focus on exercise. Which is good news for those who don't want to spend hours sweating it out in the gym.

    A high fat, low-carb, diet that has gained attention on social media in recent years may extend a person's lifespan, a new study finds. Researchers at Stanford University, in the Bay Area, found that the ketogenic diet, often referred to colloquially as the keto diet, can help muscle and stem cells survive stress and allow a person to live longer. Keto diets are extremely low-carb, but very high in fat. This trains the body to become efficient at burning fat and trains it to convert fat into energy. The rise of the diet in some communities has come with some controversy, with some warning that it could cause nutrient deficiencies and other long term problems - despite short term benefits. Researchers found that eating a high fat, low carb, keto diet can extend a person's life span in the same way that regular fasting dose (file photo) Researchers, who published their findings last week in Cell Metabolism, found that the keto diet provides many of the same positive effects to a person's cells that fasting does.

    A GAME-changing drug helps tubby adults shed up to 52lbs, according to a major study. The highest-dose of the weekly injection, known as tirzepatide, saw obese adults drop more than a fifth of their bodyweight in little over a year. 1Adults given tirzepatide dropped up to 52lbsCredit: PA:Press Association Such results are similar to those normally seen from stomach-stapling surgery. Experts claim the drug could help revolutionise obesity treatment and reverse the type 2 diabetes epidemic. But others fear it only helps to keep the pounds off while slimmer keep taking the jab.

    Exercise may be better for women in the morning if they want to burn fat, while men benefit more from working out at night. A fitness session in the morning is better for women looking to reduce fat and lose inches on their bellies, a small study suggests. They also see a greater reduction in blood pressure from exercising early in the day. But men’s blood pressure, levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol and their ability to burn fat all seem to benefit more from evening exercise. Men may also feel less tired exercising before dinner, rather than before breakfast. The results come from a study of 27 women and 20 men who worked out four times a week. Around half did so between 6am and 8am, while the rest did it between 6.30pm and 8.30pm. The small study suggested women looking to reduce fat would benefit most by exercising in the morning (file photo) Dr Paul Arciero, who led the study from Skidmore College in New York, said: ‘While both morning and evening exercise provide significant health and performance benefits for...
    It’s as if a diaphanous paper plane has suddenly shot across the stage. This is a ghost, the first ding of Hamlet in the fabric of James Ijames’ reimagining of that Shakespeare play, Fat Ham (Public Theater, to July 3), which recently won this year’s Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play, a co-production of the National Black Theatre and Public Theater, is set not in the Danish court of yore, but in the present day at a Southern backyard barbecue celebration of the wedding of Tedra (Nikki Crawford) and her dead husband’s brother, Rev (Billy Eugene Jones). But instead of the tragedy-and-then-some of Hamlet, this is a play that emphasizes life, and specifically Black queer joy, while interrogating all the things that conspire to negate the life and feelings of the central character of Juicy (Marcel Spears), who is Hamlet-ish rather than a direct transposition, resistant to following the iconic Shakespeare character’s full tragic trajectory. Echoing Shakespeare, Jones also plays Pap, Tedra’s dead husband, who has returned to chivvy and torment his son as a ghost, encouraging him...

    Americans are often advised to eat healthier, more nutritious foods in an effort to stifle the diabetes and obesity epidemic striking the nation. Researchers find that many can not identify healthy foods the grocery store aisle, though. A research team at Attest, a consumer research platform, found that when presented with multiple food options - all of varying levels of health and nutrition - only nine percent of people are able to correctly identify which was the healthiest. Even more worrying, 13 percent identified the least nutritious food option as the healthiest - more than the amount who properly identified the healthiest. Experts say that many are mislead by labels on the front of packaging like 'whole grain' and 'low calorie', and either do not bother to or cannot properly read the nutrition label on the back of the box.  A study found that only around 9% of Americans could accurately identify what product was the healthiest based on its packaging RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Highly deadly glioblastoma found among 100 former students... ...

    Poor sleeping habits may not just leave a person tired during the day, it could also pose a danger to their health, a new study finds. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, found that people who sleep for less than four hours per night are at an increased risk of developing harmful fat lining their organs. Sleep deprivation can cause people who are relatively healthy to develop 'visceral' fat in the belly, which can eventually cause issues for the heart and other organs in the body over time. The research has grave implications, as more and more people are spending less time sleeping as a result of the prevalence of smart phones, longer working hours, and other factors.   Researchers from the Mayo Clinic found that people who are getting four hours of sleep or less every night are developing dangerous 'visceral' fat that can lead to a variety of heart and organ conditions 'Our findings show that shortened sleep, even in young, healthy and relatively lean subjects, is associated with an increase in calorie intake, a very small...

    Most dieters would probably consider a healthy low-fat snack to be more appealing than no food at all. But it might in fact leave them feeling hungrier, experts say. This is because labels such as ‘healthy’ and ‘low fat’ can make people think they have been deprived of a more filling and satisfying meal. The psychological impact of that feeling of missing out can be so powerful it can increase a person’s appetite even more than if they had eaten nothing.

    Yellow-bellied marmots have been found to virtually stop the ageing process while hibernating for up to eight months of the year. Researchers from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) discovered that the biological ageing of the large ground squirrels was stalled during their dormant period.  The scientists tracked the 'epigenetic changes' - chemical modifications that occur to DNA - in blood samples taken from 73 female marmots over the age of two. During hibernation, the 13lbs (6kg) animals only burn a single gram of fat each day and turn themselves into 'fuzzy, cold rocks', according to Professor Daniel Blumstein, who advised on the study. Based on the findings, the researchers suggest that there may be biological advantages to humans adopting hibernation conditions, for example, during long-term space missions or when preserving organs for transplantation.  Blood samples taken from yellow-bellied marmots in Colorado found that the animals virtually halt the ageing process while hibernating, and is thought to be the secret to their long lifespan The scientists tracked the 'epigenetic changes' - chemical modifications that occur to DNA - in blood samples...
    OBESITY is a huge problem in the UK, including in children. Today, around two-thirds of adults are above a healthy weight, and of these, half are obese. 1Credit: Alamy One in three kids leave primary school overweight, and one in five are obese.  And the worry is that behaviours in childhood carry on into adult life. Obesity is worse in the most deprived areas of the UK, and people of some ethnic backgrounds are more at risk of disease, should they get obese.  What is the obesity crisis? The numbers speak for themselves. More adults in the UK are overweight than a healthy weight, and kids aren’t much better either.

    MOST of us aren’t the same size we were at 21 years of age. And now an expert has warned it could be putting your risk of a serious health condition, even if you are still a "healthy weight". 1Are your jeans from your early 20s a squeeze? This could mean you're at risk of diabetes Professor Roy Taylor from Newcastle University said: “As a rule of thumb, your waist size should be the same now as when you were 21. “If you can’t get into the same size trousers now, you are carrying too much fat and therefore at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, even if you aren’t overweight.” Obesity is a key driver of type 2 diabetes.  But it’s not just those who are obese who are at risk - those who are a larger dress size than their younger years could be too. For example, a female who is a dress size 14 compared to a previous 10 or 12, or a man whose waist size is 36 inches, compared to 32 previously.  Prof Taylor...
    A SIMPLE test you can do at home will reveal if you have tipped the scales too far - and all you need is a piece of string. Your results will give an idea if you are at risk of obesity related illnesses, such as heart disease or stroke. 2 You can use a piece of string that is half your height to determine if you are too fat 2 If you cannot make the ends of the folder piece of string meet then you have too much visceral fat Dr Margaret Ashwell demonstrated how to use the simple test on BBC's The Truth About Obesity, first aired in May 2018. She explained your waist measurement should be no more than half your height. All you need to do is take a piece of string and cut it to the same length as your height. Next you need to fold it in half, then wrap it around your waist. If the string meets or overlaps then you are a healthy weight, but if you can't make the ends meet then...
    ORIGINATING in Poland, Paczkis are delectable sweets commonly consumed before the Christian season of Lent. Here's everything we know about where to find the confections. 2Paczkis are a common treat on Fat Tuesday What is Paczki? Paczkis are deep-fried sphere-shaped doughnuts stuffed with a sweet filling.

    Each year Britons spend around £442 million on vitamin and mineral supplements, with nearly half of the population buying them regularly. While the consensus is that a healthy balanced diet should provide all your nutrient needs, the fact is many people regard supplements as a dietary safety net. Yet did you know that how and when you take them can undo their potential benefits?  For example, there is little point in taking vitamin D on an empty stomach because it needs fat in the gut in order for it to be properly absorbed. And taking too much of one B vitamin can leave you low in another. While the consensus is that a healthy balanced diet should provide all your nutrient needs, the fact is many people regard supplements as a dietary safety net ‘The vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy work together in a complex and delicate balance,’ says Lindsy Kass, a sports and nutrition scientist at the University of Hertfordshire.  ‘While some need each other to perform best, others can compete in the body for absorption.’...

    Being overweight not only can put a person at risk of debilitating diseases like obesity or diabetes, but it can affect their cognitive abilities as well, a new study finds. Researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, performed scans on people to detect levels of body fat and to detect potential brain injuries. Participants were also given cognitive exams to determine overall mental ability. They found a clear trend between people with more body fat and a higher likelihood of suffering a brain injury, and performed worse on the exams. The results have major implications for people who are overweight or obese, which makes a large portion of Americans according to official data. Researchers found a clear correlation between excess body fact, both across the body and around the stomach, and an increased likelihood of having brain lesions or testing poorly on cognitive tests  'It is well documented that increased adiposity is associated with several cardiovascular risk factors, and separately, large-scale epidemiologic studies confirm that cardiovascular risk factors are associated with cognitive impairment,' researchers wrote. 'Adiposity may affect cognitive...
    WITH one in three children overweight, it is hard to deny the UK has an obesity problem. And as every mum knows, it is tough keeping kids on the straight and narrow when it comes to healthy choices. 7The new NHS Food Scanner app scans barcodes and immediately tells you how much salt, sugar, saturated fat and calories are in anything you eatCredit: Alamy 7Samantha put the app to the test with her husband Scott and two sons, Max, 12, and Rufus, eightCredit: Glen Minikin Especially when supermarket shelves are filled with cheap, family-sized bags of chocolate, and adverts for fast food pop up between kids’ shows on YouTube.

    While diet and exercise are both important factors in regards to weight, hormones can actually play a significant role in weight fluctuation. If you’ve noticed that you’re experiencing hormonal changes and/or weight fluctuations, it’s always best to consult with your doctor about these issues first. Nonetheless, understanding how your body works, and how it functions is vitally important and can be helpful in your everyday life. According to U.S. News, “Your body relies on a complex network of glands, hormones and internal feedback loops to keep your weight in check. This weight-management system usually works on autopilot as you go about your day.” If you feel as though you already lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle, you may want to consider if your hormones are working properly, or if they are out of whack. Let’s take a look at which hormones could possibly be affecting your weight, and what you can do. Hormones that affect your weight Leptin and ghrelin Leptin is the primary body weight-regulating hormone made by fat tissue. Ghrelin is the hunger hormone that is released by the stomach to...

    By Jen Christensen | CNN In the holiday season, when the average American can easily pack on a few pounds, experts say there is another reason to pay attention to your weight: Covid-19. People who are overweight or obese are at a much higher risk of much more severe disease and even death from Covid-19, and one new study suggests that losing weight can reduce that risk. The obesity epidemic has been a threat to Americans’ health for years. It’s the second leading cause of preventable death, after smoking. With Covid-19, it becomes even more dangerous. One study found that 30% of Covid-19 hospitalizations were in people with obesity. The obesity clinic where Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford works in Boston has a 1,000-plus person wait list that grew a lot longer with the pandemic. Even with more than a dozen specialists on staff, it’s not enough to meet the demand. “We are overwhelmed with the volume of patients that have really made that connection between obesity and Covid and the need for them to get appropriate care,” said Cody Stanford,...

Were drowning in a sea of salt. The FDA says we have to help save ourselvesHowever, it's the type of fat, not the amount, that appears to be the culprit when it comes to stroke. Eating plant-based fats lowers stroke risk, according to a study presentation given Monday at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2021.The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, found people who ate the most vegetable-based fats were 12% less likely to experience a stroke compared to those who ate the least. On the flip side, people who ate the highest levels of animal-based saturated fat were 16% more likely to experience a stroke than those who ate the least fat of that kind."Our findings indicate the type of fat and different food sources of fat are more important than the total amount of dietary fat in the...
