    We are all unique. Yes, even you. Your mom was right!And you’re here because questions about your body type and genetics:What body type am I?How does it affect my training and diet?I have bad genetics, how screwed am I?I am a [body type]. Does that mean I shouldn’t do [activity]?We all have different bodies, genetics,reactions from certain foods, strengths, and weaknesses, and thus we each have different activities and behaviors that we’re predisposed to be good at (or struggle with!).The standard way of thinking tells us that we have three main “body types”: EndomorphEctomorphMesomorph (Don’t worry we’ll get into each...
  • Study reveals how a very low calorie diet can reverse type 2 diabetes

    11/19/2017 11:55:58 AM PST · by ConservativeMind · 50 replies
    In a new study, a Yale-led research team uncovers how a very low calorie diet can rapidly reverse type 2 diabetes in animal models. The research team investigated the effects of a very low calorie diet (VLCD), consisting of one-quarter the normal intake, on a rodent model of type 2 diabetes. Using this approach the researchers pinpointed three major mechanisms responsible for the VLCD's dramatic effect of rapidly lowering blood glucose concentrations in the diabetic animals. In the liver, the VLCD lowers glucose production by: 1) decreasing the conversion of lactate and amino acids into glucose; 2) decreasing the rate...

    According to Japanese public broadcaster NHK, police searched Shiraishi’s home as part of an investigation into the disappearance of a 23-year-old woman from Hachioji City, in the Tokyo suburbs.

Surveillance footage showed her walking with the suspect near the man’s apartment. When they searched Shiraishi’s apartment, police found the dismembered body parts of nine people, hidden around the apartment, NHK reported.

    I have been on a low carb diet for about 4 years and have lost at least 30 pounds...but lately I was feeling poorly.I work out daily (at least every cardio to a sweat for 30 minutes and weights every other day).Don't know how I stumbled upon it, but I started doing daily veggie and fruit smoothies (in my ancient Osterizer blender). Great burst in energy and "general feel good." Did a bike ride yesterday after a two month absence and, though I took it somewhat easily, I was loaded with energy.Curious about yous guys thinking about veggie and fruit...
  • Colon cancer deaths rise among younger adults, and no one knows why

    CNN ^ | Jacqueline Howard,
    Adults in the United States are dying from colon and rectal cancers at an increasing rate about age 50, when they should just be beginning screenings, according to a new study from the American Cancer Society. Since routine screening is generally not recommended for most adults under 50, the cancers found in younger adults are often in advanced stages and more deadly, said Dr. James Church, a colorectal surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Church, who was not involved in the new study, said he has seen this trend in death rates up close. Last year, on separate occasions,...

    As President of the United States, Donald Trump has an army of five personal chefs, ready and waiting to slave away in the kitchen to cater to his every dietary need. Instead, the POTUS’ favourite foods have been revealed – and it hasn’t left experts impressed. According to the Chicago Tribune, Trump eats “like a teenage boy”, indulging in fast food – he celebrated with a Big Mac and fries after he won the Republican presidential nomination - and knocking back cans of Diet Coke. By all accounts, he’s not a huge fan of breakfast, but if he does eat...

    Should we be moving towards a plant-based diet for our bodies and our consciences? It's a hotly contested issue and often an incredibly personal one. For some, it's a resounding 'yes' and many are working to reduce their animal intake – approaching Meat-free Monday with gusto. But now experts are warning that women could be putting themselves at risk of anaemia (iron deficiency) by shunning red meat. More than a quarter of women (27%) aged 19 to 64 don't get enough iron, according to the government's latest National Diet and Nutrition Survey. One in four people surveyed reported they have...

    A doctor has revealed the secrets behind the “world’s healthiest village”– and there it all comes down to eating less sugar. Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra – who describes himself as a former sugar addict – has spent years studying the reasons behind rocketing rates of heart disease and obesity in Britain. Key to his research were residents of the village of Pioppi, in southern Italy, where diabetes is unheard of and many live to over the age of 100.

    When Gillie Houston first tried the trendy, low-cal ice cream Halo Top, the experience was “life-changing.” An entire pint has as little as 240 calories — compared to about 1,000 in your average container of Ben & Jerry’s — and, some say, tastes as good as a non-diet dessert. “I think there’s some kind of witchcraft or sorcery involved in the making of it,” says Houston, 24, a writer who lives in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and has a food-centric Instagram account, @gilliehouston, with more than 101,000 followers.

    HeatStreet ^ | 5/6/2017
    The mayor of Seattle has altered the rules of his proposed soda tax — which would fund education for minorities–to include diet drinks because affluent white people tend to consume them more. Mayor Ed Murray of the staunchly liberal Seattle city originally proposed the soda tax during his state of the city address in February. Under his initial plan, distributors of sugary drinks would have to pay 2 cents per ounce. It would cover sodas such as Coke and Pepsi, energy drinks like Red Bull, fruit drinks, sweetened teas and bottled coffees such as those sold by Starbucks. The Mayor claimed the tax would bring $16 million in...

    A lot of the Silicon Valley elite are doing extreme experiments on their bodies in hopes of prolonging their lives and improving their health. The latest fad among this set is sticking to a so-called 'ketogenic' diet that's exceptionally high in fat and low in carbs and is considered an experimental treatment for diabetes. Think Atkins, but way more extreme. Ambar Bhattacharyya, a managing director with Maverick Ventures, initially embarked on a low-carb, high-fat "ketogenic" diet during the due diligence process for a startup called Virta Health. The diet was designed to transition his body from burning fat as its...

    The American Thinker ^ | 03/15/17 | Thomas Lifson
    The ideology of Progressivism rests on the notion that “experts” should be given free rein to guide the populace in proper behavior, by persuasion if possible, but by governmental law and regulation if necessary. These “experts” could inform the disinterested administrators of a state powerful enough to impose itself on the behavior of the masses too ignorant to chart a personal course for themselves. The folly of this view is nowhere exposed more nakedly than in the matter of personal eating habits. The advice of the “experts” has been so frequently wrong that the federal government’s dietary guidelines have repeatedly...
  • Fasting Diet May Help Regenerate a Diabetic Pancreas

    NHS News ^ | 2/24
    "The pancreas can be triggered to regenerate itself through a type of fasting diet, say US researchers," BBC News reports. Research in mice found a low-calorie diet may help in cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The pancreas is an organ that uses specialised cells known as beta cells to produce the hormone insulin, which the body uses to break down sugars in the blood (glucose). In type 1 diabetes the pancreas stops producing insulin. In type 2 diabetes either not enough insulin is produced or cells in the body fail to respond to insulin (insulin resistance). Mice...

    The first-ever cases of obesity have been recorded among nomadic Arctic reindeer herders, after they became exposed to instant noodles and other junk foods. Russian scientists are warning about the dramatic change in the Nenets and Khanty peoples on the icy Yamal peninsula in northern Siberia, who for centuries had eaten only traditional foods. A diet based on venison and fresh river fish meant that obesity was unknown among these indigenous peoples, but now outside influences are changing everything.

    To hear Brady tell it, his longevity is largely thanks to his eccentric eating habits. In late 2014, he explained his diet to Sports Illustrated as 80 percent alkaline and 20 percent acidic, which, he says, “maintain[s] balance and harmony through [his] metabolic system.”

    Michael White, the Michelin-starred chef behind acclaimed Italian restaurants such as Marea and Ai Fiori, has dropped 137 pounds over the past five years — but he’s still enjoying the pasta that made him famous. In 2010, the 6-foot-4-inch chef noticed his body was aching. He was uncomfortable, his feet hurt and he lacked energy. He stepped on the scale and was shocked by the number he saw: 374 — 100 pounds more than he weighed as a football player at Rock Valley College in Illinois.

    By now, you’ve likely heard of juicing. But what about “souping”? Essentially, instead of downing green juice all day long, this cleanse involves sipping on soup. In my opinion, souping is a better option than stricter cleanses. That said, you certainly don’t need to limit your entire diet to liquid meals in order to take advantage of soup’s health and weight loss benefits. Here, why and how to incorporate some healthful soup into your diet. A study published in the journal Appetite found that when people ate a low-calorie soup (about 130 calories for women and 170 for men) before...
