This really popular diet may not help you lose weight after all

This popular diet trend might not be the best option for weight loss.

Intermittent fasting is considered by some to be the most effective and natural method for improving health. For those looking to burn weight fast, intermittent fasting teaches you how to eat on a schedule, which makes it more about a lifestyle change rather than a diet. It balances mostly on an individual’s personal lifestyle, what their patterns of eating are, and how food is used throughout the day in one’s life.

While it might be beneficial to those looking to control the way they eat, it is not the best strategy for shedding a few pounds on the scale, according to a new study.

Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Hawaii Cancer Center recently published their findings in JAMA Internal Medicine, that suggested the popular time-based diet didn’t “confer weight loss

Significant weight loss has same metabolic effects on diabetics from surgery or diet alone, study finds

Gastric bypass surgery has been reportedly considered one of the most effective ways to treat type 2 diabetes in obese people. But a recent study questioned if the procedure truly has a unique metabolic effect in diabetics, or if is weight loss after the surgery that really causes the beneficial effects in people.

“It has been presumed that gastric bypass surgery has therapeutic, metabolic effects that result in better glucose control and even remission of diabetes beyond the effects expected from weight loss alone,” principal investigator Dr. Samuel Klein, director of Washington University’s Center for Human Nutrition, stated in the news release provided to Fox News.

DIETS HIGHER IN PROTEIN, PARTICULARLY PLANT PROTEIN, LINKED TO LOWER RATES OF EARLY DEATH: STUDY

However, Klein’s team of researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found in their recent study that it is not necessarily the surgery itself that drives

‘Diet’ soft drinks do not falsely advertise weight loss, appeals court in SF says

A soft drink label that includes the word “diet” — Diet Dr Pepper or Diet Coke, for example — isn’t a promise to help you lose weight or keep it under control.

Not according to a federal appeals court, anyway.

“The prevalent understanding of the term in (the marketplace) is that the ‘diet’ version of a soft drink has fewer calories than its ‘regular’ counterpart,” the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said Monday in a ruling refusing to reinstate a fraud suit against the makers of Diet Dr Pepper.

“Just because some consumers may unreasonably interpret the term differently does not render the use of ‘diet’ in a soda’s brand name false or deceptive,” the court said.

Last week, the same court tersely dismissed an appeal by the same plaintiff against the makers of Diet Coke. In June, the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in

Diet & Weight Loss – Harvard Health

A healthy weight is an important element of good health. How much you eat—and what you eat—play central roles in maintaining a healthy weight or losing weight. Exercise is the other key actor.

For years, low-fat diets were thought to be the best way to lose weight. A growing body of evidence shows that low-fat diets often don’t work, in part because these diets often replace fat with easily digested carbohydrates.

Hundreds of diets have been created, many promising fast and permanent weight loss. Remember the cabbage soup diet? The grapefruit diet? How about the Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle diet, the caveman diet, the Subway diet, the apple cider vinegar diet, and a host of forgettable celebrity diets?

The truth is, almost any diet will work if it helps you take in fewer calories. Diets do this in two main ways:

  • getting you to eat certain “good” foods and/or avoid

A healthy lifestyle involves many choices. Among them, choosing a balanced diet or healthy eating plan. So how do you choose a healthy eating plan? Let’s begin by defining what a healthy eating plan is.
