Are you having a struggle with weight loss?  Well, now you have someone to blame.  According to a study from the University of Minnesota, mothers of young children were heavier and ate more calories, fatty foods, and sugary drinks than women without children.  In addition, both parents were less active than those of the same age without children.  The study was not a small one.  There were over 1,500 adults with children younger than five and according to the report which is in the journal Pediatrics, mothers in this study with young children had a diet so poor, they’d have to walk three miles a day to not gain a pound.

There’s No Magic Pill for Weight Loss

Green Apples

Despite the fact that millions have been spent looking for one, and many an unethical marketer has promoted it, there is no magic pill for weight loss.  Many women are searching for this answer, but the bottom line is a harsh one.  Overweight people can achieve greater weight loss success with a combination of a low-calorie diet, increased physical activity, and behavioral changes.  The best case scenario is to allow people to learn about the foods to eat, how to choose them at restaurants and the store, as well as providing support for exercise.

Over-Consumption of Junk Food Can Trigger Addiction-Like Responses in the Brain

Doctors and researchers have suspected this for quite some time, but a study in rats reported in the journal Neuroscience has found that over-consumption of high-calorie food can trigger addiction-like responses in the brain, and that junk food can turn rats into compulsive eaters in a laboratory setting.  When the researchers regularly offered rats a choice of high-calorie foods such as bacon, sausage, cake, and chocolate in addition to their regular food choices, the animals over-consumed calories and gained weight rapidly.  The study gets even more interesting, the team trained their rats to expect painful foot shocks when seeing a light signal.  Although normal rats stop eating even the most delicious junk food when the light comes on, the obese rats used to the high-calorie diet just keep feeding.  The desire for junk food overcame the fear of pain.

Study Looks at Calories and Weight Gain

Study Looks at Calories and Weight Gain

It is a very simple concept: Calories in, calories out. The more calories you take in, the greater your chances you will gain weight. The problem is that many people, in fact, most of us, do not want to believe it. We’re always looking for an edge. We want some way that we can beat the system. So, if you’re looking for a way to beat the system, you will not be happy with the results of a study done at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Researchers followed a large group of healthy, middle-aged, U.S. women for more than a decade. The first step of the study confirmed the fact that too many calories leads to weight gain (that’s pretty obvious). In the second part of the study they found that for those who started off at a healthy weight, being successful at maintaining a normal weight meant participating in an average of 60 minutes a day of moderately intense exercise.

What Is The Key To Successful Dieting?

What Is The Key To Successful Dieting?

What do you do when you go on a diet? Well, many people actually just cut calories and they suffer. That really isn’t an effective way to diet. The problem with that is you can’t prolong it. People who are going to diet and do well have to do something they can do over time, to be proud of it, to prolong it, to make sure it’s something that lasts. If you’re going to be someone who is going to diet, make sure that you evaluate things on a regular basis. Look at your calories in, your calories out, and make sure you can sustain it over the long haul.
