The average BBQ meal contains 3,500 calories, but don’t let that stop you from hitting up a slew of BBQs, backyard cookouts, and pool parties this summer.

If You Snooze, Will You Lose (Weight)?

The word has been out for a while that lack of sleep can mess with weight loss and weight management, but get this: According to a small study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, when dieters in the study got a full night's sleep, they lost the same amount of weight as when they slept less. When dieters got adequate sleep, however, more than one half of the weight they lost was fat. When they cut back on their sleep, only one fourth of their weight loss came from fat.  Participants…See More

Make Your Child’s Weight Loss a Family Affair

 While they might not realize it, parents play a huge role in their children’s eating and exercise habits. Kids are still spending most of their time at home and eating most meals at home. Parents buy and prepare food, and decide what and how much kids can eat. They are responsible for providing opportunities for children to be active and can set rules for TV and video game use. With obesity increasingly becoming a critical medical problem in children, parents need to step up to the plate. In…See More

Strokes

When you think of a stroke survivor, you likely imagine an older person with lots of previous health problems.  These days, however, that picture is changing.  The mounting obesity epidemic in the United States has contributed to an increase in the number of strokes occurring among younger Americans, according to the American Stroke Association .  The biggest increase was among men ages 15-34; stokes increased in this group by 51%!  Strokes rose among woman in this age group as well, but not as…See More

Friends Share Obesity With Each Other

“Weight can be inherited, but it can also be contagious.” -Brian Wansink author or “Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think”

 

Brian Wansink, an author of over 100 academic articles and books on eating behavior, has found that when we are with people we enjoy, such as friends, we often lose track of how much, how fast, and how long we are eating for. It seems when we are with others we tend to mimic the speed at which they eat and how much…

Homework, late workdays, long commutes, after-school activities -- it's no wonder few families eat dinner together. Yet studies show that the family dinner hour is an important part of healthy living. In fact, a recent study published in the journal Pediatrics found that children and adolescents who share meals with their families at least three times per week are less likely to be overweight, be at risk for eating disorders, or eat unhealthy foods, such as soda, fast food, fried food…
