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.

How You Lose Weight Is Important for Success

How You Lose Weight Is Important for Success

Losing weight is important, but how you lose it is even more important. A lot of people go on diets where they get dramatic losses in weight over a short period of time. But those diets are often doomed to failure because the people who lost that weight will gain it relatively rapidly and that is a problem. One of the problems we have to deal with when it comes to dieting is people don’t always understand that the weight loss that they can have is actually one which is transient. It may last 6 months or 8 weeks, but it’s not going to last a lifetime. Changing life habits is the way to do it.

Are you having a struggle with weight loss? Well, now you have someone to blame.

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.

Unexplained Weight Loss in Teens

Unexplained Weight Loss in Teens

When you see an unexplained weight loss in a teenager you have to think about several things. First of all, you look at their mood. Are they depressed? Are they eating properly? Secondly, is it an intentional thing they’re not telling you about? Are they on a diet? Do they feel they’re overweight and they want to lose weight? Discuss it with them. Beyond that, you have to start thinking about other illnesses. Are there problems associated with it? One other thing…sometimes children go through growth spurts. They may not lose weight, but it looks like they lost weight because they’ve grown up so fast. You’ll also often find that in boys during adolescence.

Psychological Aspect of Anorexia

Psychological Aspect of Anorexia

Anorexia is a serious medical problem, but it’s a medical problem with a psychological overlie. People who have anorexia actually have a distorted body image. They feel that there is something wrong with them. That they weigh too much. As a result, they eat far less and can get into big trouble. Even when they are losing weight, they continue to think they weigh too much, and that’s part of the problem with anorexia. People who have anorexia nervosa have to have the psychological issues dealt with as well as the weight issues.
