Get rid of stubborn fat through Lipobodysculpting: Dr Nilesh Goyal

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Ever wondered how to get rid of your love handles or have slim waist? Do you have problems with your thighs rubbing against each other when you walk? Are you embarrassed with bulky arms that make you look much older? Then have no worry. Lipobodysculpting is now available at your door step to take care of such areas of excess fat collection.

Lipobodysculpting is a safe and effective modality to get rid of excess fat deposition on body and limbs. It aims to remove fat under the skin and give a slim body shape.

Fat once formed around limbs and waist cannot be lost with diet and exercise. The adipose cells shrink following reduction in body weight. Once the stimulus to loose weight is taken away, the cells grow back in size. This often leads to feeling of frustration with weight loss measures.

Are people who sweat more are healthier? Thanks

Sweating is the body’s way of cooling itself off and maintaining a healthy temperature. People are born with sweat glands. Fit people sweat more efficiently by sweating sooner during workouts, when their body temperature is lower. However, a sedentary person working at the same intensity will heat up a lot faster and possibly sweat more. Also, overweight people sweat more profusely than normal weight individuals because fat acts as an insulator that raises core temperature. So, its not that people who sweat more are healthier.

Types of milk and their benefits

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

You are never too old to drink milk. Milk is full of vitamins and nutrients. Earlier, there were just two types of milk that we knew of – raw milk and boiled milk. However, with changing times and keeping the health conscious people in mind, markets are being bombarded with different kinds of milk. Today, we will tell you more about the kinds of milk and their benefit in the following paragraphs.

Milk is packed with calcium and phosphorous which is needed for development of bones in children, protein required for muscle repair and nutrients that provide energy. While milk is a must for kids, health conscious folk think twice before gulping down a glass. However, there is the low fat milk/skimmed/toned milk available for the calorie conscious.

Tips to get flatter stomach revealed

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Getting rid of belly fat is simpler than you might have thought.

With the right plan, it’s actually easier to lose that stubborn lower-body fat or the seemingly impossible to tone back-of-the-arm flab.

Stick to a healthy diet and exercise guidelines, and you’ll be slimmer and healthier by summer.

Obviously, you want to keep your calories in a healthy range and avoid meals that are high in saturated fat.

But research has also shown that eating more of certain foods can help you burn excess visceral fat and pave the way to a smaller middle, the Huffington Post reported.

In addition to helping maintain heart health and keep inflammation levels under control, monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs, may stop belly fat before it starts.

Research in the journal Diabetes Care found that people who got roughly 25 percent of their total daily calories from MUFAs gained no visceral fat over the course of the study, while those who ate less MUFAs and more carbs added fat to their midsections.

Canola oil can reduce abdominal fat

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Canola oil and high-oleic canola oils can lower abdominal fat when used in place of other selected oil blends, a new study suggest.

The researchers also found that consuming certain vegetable oils may be a simple way of reducing the risk of metabolic syndrome, which affects about one in three US adults and one in five Canadian adults.

“The monounsaturated fats in these vegetable oils appear to reduce abdominal fat, which in turn may decrease metabolic syndrome risk factors,” Penny Kris-Etherton, Distinguished Professor of Nutrition, Penn State said.

In the randomized, controlled trial, 121 participants at risk for metabolic syndrome received a daily smoothie containing 40 grams (1.42 ounces) of one of five oils as part of a weight maintenance, heart-healthy, 2000-calorie per day diet.

Large lunch and small dinner ‘key to slim body’

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Researchers have claimed that if a person wants to keep his body slim then his lunch should be the biggest meal of the day while dinner should be the lightest.

According to research, the body’s ability to make use of the sugar in food fluctuates throughout the day, in tune with the body’s own clock.

And if this is disturbed then it is easy to put on weight.

The US researchers studied mice but they believe that people can benefit from timing their meals to be in tune their body clock.

Professor Carl Johnson, of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, carefully measured levels of insulin – a hormone which plays a key role in the conversion of the sugar in our food into energy – and found that rather than amounts of insulin staying relatively constant over time, there was a clear pattern, with the animals finding it harder to deal with sugar when they’d usually be asleep.

Fat transplant could help combat obesity and prevent diabetes

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

A transplant of brown fat, which burns calories and regulates the metabolism, could combat obesity, a study has revealed.

Scientists have discovered that transplanting fat could hold key to weight loss.

It sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s thought adding the right type of fat to the body could speed up calorie burning and improve conditions such as diabetes, the Daily Mail reported.

The theory is that there are two types of fat in the body. One is the much-dreaded white fat, which sits under the skin and gives us that beer belly or wobbly thighs. It’s caused by eating too much.

But we also have a smaller amount of brown fat, which generates heat. It does this by boosting the metabolism, burning large amounts of energy so the body starts to burn up the “white fat.”

DNA, not just fast food, to be blamed for obesity

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

It’s not just what you eat that makes those pants tighter — it’s also genetics, researchers have claimed.

In a new study, scientists discovered that body-fat responses to a typical fast-food diet are determined in large part by genetic factors, and they have identified several genes they say may control those responses.

The study is the first of its kind to detail metabolic responses to a high-fat, high-sugar diet in a large and diverse mouse population under defined environmental conditions, modeling closely what is likely to occur in human populations.

The researchers found that the amount of food consumed contributed only modestly to the degree of obesity.

“Our research demonstrates that body-fat responses to high-fat, high-sugar diets have a very strong genetic component, and we have identified several genetic factors potentially regulating these responses,” first author Dr. Brian Parks, a postdoctoral researcher at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA said.

Scent of raspberries could help you lose weight

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Fragrant compounds that occur naturally in raspberries and a number of other fruits are the brand new get-slim-quick fix on the market.

Raspberry ketones are normally used to give a fruity smell to cosmetics and foodstuffs and, as only one to four milligrams can be extracted from every kilo of fresh fruit, a synthetic version is often used to get the same result.

Now, these ketones are being sold online, in supplement form, as a slimming agent, the Daily Mail reported.

The key lies in the fact that the ketones appear to boost levels of a hormone called adiponectin, which regulates metabolism. Higher levels of this hormone are associated with lesser fat stores.
