Weight Loss with Lifestyle Changes in Eating Patterns

Some doctors are finding out what others like Dr. Daniel Amen have known for years. If a person eats sufficient amounts of fruits and vegetable this slowly decreases obesity and decreases or eliminated some health issues all together. 

A grossly obese 10-year old child in New York, found herself admitted to Harlem Hospital Center in New York, where she found an innovative program weight reduction program to increase fruits and vegetables in her diet. 

The weight has come off very slowly, a few pounds every year, which is the way people are slowly eliminating the national obesity problem making significant lifestyle changes and through teaching nutritious eating patterns makes sense and shows positive results. 
The parents said that their child’s doctor did not just say, “You are overweight, now go home and lose the weight.” The doctor offered a successful solution focused on a lifestyle change. This child’s mother reported to have high blood pressure, but when she started to eliminate fried foods and harmful snack foods, changing to fruits and vegetables she eliminated the high blood pressure. 

This program shows promise, as doctors are finding successful results. Instead of using drugs to lose weight, lifestyle changes show people a better way to eat and prepare healthy food choices shows amazing results. 

Our nation’s obesity epidemic is being eradicated through common sense and by eating the right kinds of foods prepared the right way. Doctors in New York are meeting the obesity epidemic in this one small way.

Weighing The Options

It’s not the fault of a beverage that people in a country are obese. A Mexican ad is evidently claiming that the reason people are overweight is because they like to drink Coke. While drinking sodas is a way that people will gain weight, especially if they continue to drink one after another through the day, this isn’t the only cause.

There are people who have medical issues that prevent them from losing weight or that make them gain weight. Some people don’t exercise, and there are those who just don’t care if they gain weight or not. Blaming a drink for a country being obese makes no sense because people have a choice.

Christian Broda says the drink is sitting on the shelf, and you can either pick it up or leave it alone. It’s a simple process of willpower. Some have it, and others don’t have the willpower to say no.

A Possible Cure For Diabetes

Researchers at the Indiana University and German researchers have found a hormone that can possibly cure diabetes and obesity according to my friend Darius Fisher.  This has been tested on lab mice and the results of the hormone have been very surprising and promising. They showed that the hormone was able to decrease glucose sensitivity, increase calorie burn, and lower appetite. This hormone could really be a wonder for many adults who have experienced adult onset diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease of the endocrine system and it occurs when a person’s body cannot regulate insulin in the correct fashion. There are two types of diabetes type one diabetes which occurs in childhood and type two adult onset diabetes which is usually a diabetes that can be controlled by things such as diet and exercise.

it is great to see that researchers are continuously looking for ways to cure diabetes, because it really is a disease that has wrecked havoc on a lot of people. At the same time each and every individual is responsible for their own bodies, and since early adult onset diabetes is really a disease that can be well managed by eating well, exercising, and taking good care of health, before person looks to be cured by a magic pill, they should try to take care of their own bodies the best way that they can.

The Greeker The Better

Everyone has heard of the health benefits found in Greek yogurt to include high protein and probiotics. Daniel Amen is always stressing the importance of vitamin intake and many key vitamins can be found in Greek yogurt. In fact, Greek yogurt has become a billion dollar money maker in the USA alone. The strange thing is that many people do not like it, but, there is one person who is very fond of it and she is Maria Loi. Maria Loi is a author and chef, as well as a host for several television programs, which have aired in her homeland of Greece, as well as in the USA on PBS. In Ms. Loi’s opinion, Greek yogurt is much more than a breakfast choice. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/12/05/greek-yogurt-recipes/?src=me. For Ms. Loi, this delicious find is a gold mine and it can be used in a variety of different ways from being a substitute for mayo and sour cream, as well as keeping her pie crusts super moist when used in place of butter.

In her most recent cookbook, the galloping gourmet promotes healthy recipes that are rich in Greek yogurt, olive oil and nuts. To much surprise, she even thinks Greek yogurt can be used as a beauty treatment. Now how is that for getting your money’s worth?

Rage Against the Vaccines

A recent study claims that more than 40 percent of U.S. adults that participated in their survey believe that the flu shot gives you the flu. Where does this distrust stem from?

Some cite religious belief when arguing against vaccines. However, very few mainstream religions actually claim anti-vaccine rhetoric as doctrine.

Holistic health believers and practitioners feel that anything your body needs to heal and thrive can be found in food, plants, herbs, essential oils, and other naturally based health practices. That is why Dave and Brit Morin try to eat as healthy as possible.

Then there are those who distrust anything to do with Big Pharma. The belief that the pharmaceutical corporations are only out to make money and will manipulate the masses to the non-existence of side effects is a pervasive opinion touted by many.

Not many people understand what exactly a vaccine is and how it works. A little research shows that it’s unlikely to get sick from a vaccine. A study in 2013 showed 1,080 vaccine related deaths, as opposed to the 30,000 Americans killed every year by the flu itself, according to the article.

The reality of the situation is that most of those were infected by someone who was not vaccinated, making these deaths avoidable.

New Checklight is Helpful for Concussion Sufferers

Concussions are extremely dangerous. A series of repeated concussions could cause irreparable harm to the brain. Walking around with a concussion is very troubling because you must have the condition checked out and treated as soon as humanly possible. Why do so many choose not to see a doctor when they have suffered a concussion. Simply put, they do not know they have suffered one.

Now, there is a way to check your head, so to speak. The Reebok Checklight is a new apparatus designed to be worn under a helmet. The light illuminates when you have suffered enormous impact to the cranium.

Hockey players, cyclists, skateboarders, and other athletes definitely can benefit from wearing this seemingly simple device.

No one is suggested that just because the light goes off that this would automatically indicate a concussion. Similarly, just because the light is not engaged does not mean no harm has befallen the person wearing it. According to Laurene Powell Jobs, what is actually being said, is that having access to a warning light allows you to at least take more action that you otherwise would without the equipment.

As previously mentioned, when someone suffered a brain injury, the person might not take the time to visit a doctor. He or she might not take the impact serious. When a major warning light goes off, this would be an extreme indicator that seeing a doctor is a smart move. The indicator light is not going to go off for no reason.

Running to Reverse Time

Not only can running slow aging, it might even reverse it. As people get older, they lose some agility. Navigating a curb, for instance, becomes more difficult. There are a couple of reasons for this. One factor contributing to is something psychologists call “attentional demands.” As humans age, brain plasticity and the speed of connections slows.Plasticity refers to the brain’s ability to make new neural connections and repair itself from damage. Though the brain is complex and scientists are just beginning to figure out certain aspects of its intricacies, one thing they are certain of: exercise increases brain plasticity and improves its overall health. Experts suggest that any type of exercise helps. As humans reach middle age other factors impact health as well and exercise can slow these processes too.


Aging causes blood vessels to stiffen, blood pressure to rise, muscles to wear away, bones to weaken, and hormone levels to drop. Exercise has been shown to slow all of these symptoms of age. That is why Keith Mann tries so much to stay active. However, the type of exercise also matters. Though walking is beneficial for many things, running actually has been shown to reverse aging. Researchers at the University of Boulder also found that older runners could walk with the agility of a younger person. As opposed to walkers, who showed no better walking ability than someone who didn’t exercise at all. So for muscle coordination, on top of many other health benefits, run for your health.

Common Knee Surgery May Increase the Risk of Arthritis

A recent study shows a certain type of knee surgery might increase the chance of developing arthritis. The procedure repairs the tears in the meniscus, a part of the cartilage that functions as a shock absorber. Each knee has two meniscus and these help stabilize the knee joints. One known common knee injury is the meniscal tear. According to many researchers, a surgery is typically performed to help reduce pain as well as improve the joint function.

In their study, the researchers used MRI scans to check 355 knees with arthritis. After which, they compared them to the same number of knees without arthritis.

Keith Mann reports that within a year, all 31 knees that have gone through surgery to repair the meniscal tears have developed arthritis. On the other hand, 59 percent of those with meniscal damage and did not have surgery did not develop arthritis. The study found that cartilage loss occurred to almost 81 percent of knees that have gone through meniscal surgery compared to about 40 percent of knees that did not go through the surgery.

In a news release, Dr. Frank Roemer of University School of Medicine in Boston said that although the meniscal surgery is common, there is increasing evidence that it may damage the knee joint.

Jared Haftel Advises on the Ways College Degrees Help Investment Banking

Investing can be a difficult field to get down right. There are hundreds of different investment opportunities out there for the intrigued investor, any number of which could suddenly take off or completely collapse. Thankfully, investment bankers like Jared Haftel exist to help guide you through this difficult process. Haftel is a young, dynamic and exciting investment banker with several years of experience under his belt.

What does it take to become a great investment banker? First of all, one should have a solid education in fields related to the subject. Honestly, there’s no “investment banker” degree, so individual bankers may have wildly different education backgrounds. Jared Haftel is a 2009 graduate of Duke University with a Bachelor degrees in Science, Mathematics and Economics.

This background has given Jared a wide range of skills, all of which are appropriate for investment banking. First of all, his science degree gives him the patience to try new things and experiment with new approaches until it works. Jared will work hard until he finds an investment that fits your portfolio and which looks like it could turn a decent profit.

Mathematics is an essential skill for any investment specialist. After all, they will be staring at wildly vacillating numbers all day, trying to make sense of seemingly incomprehensible raw data. A mathematics degree gives Jared the ability to sort this data, make sense of it, and present it to you in a way that makes sense. It also makes his investment banking advice among the best in the country.

The benefit of an economics degree in investment banking is obvious. It gives Jared an understanding of the flow and flux of the market. Investment bankers without economic degrees are often left trying to make sense of information that they can’t possibly understand. Jared has no such problem: he understands the market, investments, and maximizing your portfolio.

And it’s obviously been working for him: in the five years since his graduation, Jared has already worked as an analyst for the Global Industrials Group at BofA Merrill Lynch, CONSOL Energy, Huntsman Corporation, GeoEye and EMS Technologies. He has analyzed a wide variety of investment and commodities, including metal, mining, chemicals, and even defense. These commodities are notoriously difficult to analyze and feature wildly different ebb and flow cycles.

Jared’s experience in these commodities have given him a uniquely diverse base of knowledge. And it has led to even bigger and better things: Jared moved on to become an associate at the prestigious Vector Capital firm and as an investment banking analyst for Bank of America. These are two of the top banking and investment firms in the world.

Anybody interested in pursuing investment banking as a career can look to Jared’s fine example as guidance. It’s also a good reminder of how different, yet related, degrees and education backgrounds can lead to major success in your chosen field. If you’re interested in getting multiple degrees, make sure they are at least tangentially related. This should give you the leg up you need to get the job of your dream.Also make sure to check out what Jared has to say on Facebook.  Every once in a while you get some really intuitive insight into what makes someone successful in these industries.

A Natural Diet

What’s the secret to a longer life? Some might say that it’s exercise, and others might say that it’s making sure you do what the doctor says. Others would say that you need to follow a diet of specific foods. These foods include your typical vegetables and fruits as well as fish and grains. Throw in a little olive oil and you have just about everything that you can grow on your own.


There is a benefit to this diet in that you won’t have to pay the exuberant prices that you would find in a grocery store, and you won’t have to worry about what is put on your food because you tend to it yourself. This diet seems to be something that rabbits or wild animals would eat, and Gianfrancesco Genoso has personally tried it. There might be a benefit to eating natural substances, but is it really something that’s going to make you live longer if you have none of the other vitamins and minerals.
