When you think about weight loss, chances are beer doesn’t come to mind. But it turns out that beer, and more specifically, hops, contains a compound that promotes weight loss as well as has other weight- and health-related benefits.
You don’t need to be a dedicated beer drinker to appreciate what a group of researchers at Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute uncovered about how beer could help with weight loss.

The findings of a systematic review indicate that adolescent obesity could be a risk factor for multiple sclerosis. If future research supports this idea, it “would be of major significance,” according to experts at the University of British Columbia, especially given the rising number of children and adolescents who are overweight or obese.
Scientists around the world have been searching for the causes and risk factors for multiple scleros

A health expert in the United Kingdom has suggested one way to help fight overweight and obesity is to provide activity equivalent food labeling. For example, a box of cookies would tell you how long you would need to walk to burn off the calories in one serving.

Seitan is one of the most overlooked high-protein, low-calorie, vegetarian weight loss foods. Admittedly, if you have an intolerance for wheat gluten, this is not the food for you. However, if gluten is not an issue, definitely read on about how (and why) you can incorporate this vegetarian weight loss food into your menu.

Sugar has been called a substance that is more than or just as addictive as cocaine. Although not all experts agree there is such a thing as sugar addiction, the consensus is that the brain is hardwired for pleasure, and sugar is a major pleasure, associated with significant cravings. Here are some tips on how to beat the cravings.
One doctor who believes there is such a thing as sugar addiction is Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, author of Beat Sugar Addiction Now.

Every dieter has foods on his or her list that are a must, and the foods typically are on the list because they are associated with the “theme” of the diet, such as vegetarian/vegan, paleo, low-carb, high-protein, low-fat, and so on. I don’t want to put this one food into a category (although it could definitely fit into the first choice and several others) because it’s in a category of its own: seaweed.
Perhaps you have read about how a certain type of brown seaweed or kelp (e.g., wakame) has components that can contribute to weight loss.

You see it quite often: parents who give their young children food (cookies, candy, chips) as a reward, a treat, an incentive to stop bad behavior, or to ease a bruised knee or other pain. Researchers from several universities in the United Kingdom have found that parents who use food in stressful or emotional situations may be setting their children up for emotional eating later in life, a practice that can result in overweight or obesity.
Emotional eating has become commonplace in today’s society.

Among the many controversies surrounding GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and their use in our food is their possible impact on weight gain. It’s not a topic that has garnered much attention in the realm of GMOs, but it is one that is worth considering, especially given the high percentage of basic food crops (e.g., corn, soybeans, canola) that have been genetically modified and their presence in processed foods.
GM foods, or crops that have had their genetic material (DNA) altered so they can resist drought

It may be difficult to imagine how your plastic water bottle could make you fatter. However, new research has shown that the plastics component BPS (bisphenol S), which was designed to replace BPA (bisphenol A) in food and beverage packaging, enhances the development of fat cells in humans and seems to have as many health concerns as its predecessor.

Quiet and comfortable, room was clean, but was very disappointed that the hotel has no program for recycling. When I asked about it the front desk, the clerk was momentarily confused, then said the hotel did no recycling at all, not even in the offices.
