Doctor, Iím bingeing but I still canít loose weightWritten by Naweko San-Joyz
If you rely on bingeing as a means to shed extra pounds or stabilize your weight, let me impart some down-home farming facts to dissuade you from this habit. Six-time Ms. Olympia champion, Cory Everson, offers a simple explanation for why bingeing fails: Itís same method farmers use to fatten up their hogs for county fairs! Farmers do this by encouraging their hogs to overeat. For two to three days, farmers deny their hogs food. Then after this forced fast, farmers give hogs more food than they can possibly eat. And hogs, of course, eat like hogs. Much to content of farmer, hogs gain several pounds in process.
Obese Mothers make Obese kids!Written by Jasdeep Singh
A study published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition claims that doctors start giving attention to children of overweight parents very early- by age of 4 at latest. "We found dramatic increase in body fat between ages three and six", said Dr Robert Berkowitz, who led study. He was also quoted saying " We should be doing prevention and treatment programs at a much earlier age. Everyone knows how difficult it is to take weight off once you are overweight." As per US researchers, children of overweight mothers are 15 times more likely to be obese by age of 6 than children of lean mothers.
His team is now working on eating and exercise habits of families they studied but said genes undoubtly play an important role as per other studies which cant be ignored and biggest evidence is dramatic spike in weight between ages 3 and 6." this suggests that some genes controlling body weight may become active during this period", added Berkowitz. According to his study, one-third of children of over-weight women gained weight quickly after turning 3. Of 37 children of healthy weight women, only one became overweight. Now, all those overweight women, you have one great reason to lose weight and be healthy!
