Exercise or diet, what's better for weight loss?Especially in January, we are asked whether it is better to lose weight by exercise or by diet.
The response I mostly give is that diet is the more efficient method but makes you grumpy and if you overdo it, will lose muscle, while exercise can make you happy, fit and strong.
A few years ago the discovery how in general, exercise doesn't make you lose weight made headlines.
In my former life as a long-distance cyclist I'd have shaken my head in disbelief.. after all, every single spring, fat would almost literally melt away once the cycling season started.
Anyhow, as counterintuitive as it seems to mile-eating cardio-junkies, exercising more is not the best solution to weight loss mostly because the weight piles on off-season.
True enough , once the season was over, the fat would pile on equally fast. Why?
Quite simply, unlike many of my cycling buddies who were also passionate about (marathon) skating, I didn't practice any other sport. Some others refused to skate indoor and only wanted to skate on natural ice, which has become a rarity in the the past 30 years!
Of course I knew exercise burns calories, but somehow it is very difficult to adjust to diet upwards or downwards as appetite lags behind so much!
Is Alzheimer’s Disease the same as type 3 diabetes?Alzheimer starves your brain, tangles and twists vital cells, and for decades it has been misrepresented as an untreatable, genetically determined disease. Alzheimer's disease is already an important cause of death in Western Europe and is expected to rise to the top. This devastating illness shares a strong link with another sickness that wreaks havoc on millions of people too: diabetes.
Why coconut oil is being demonized by the American Heart AssociationYou may have heard the news last week about new guidelines from on dietary fats from the American Heart Association (AHA). The part that made the most news around the globe is that coconut oil is unhealthy. It led to flashy newspaper articles as “Coconut Oil is as Bad as Butter”, “Coconut Oil is Unhealthy and Has Never Been Healthy”. Not only do these types of headlines cause increased confusion for the general population, for those of us who understand the nuances and politics behind the AHA’s statement it’s absolutely infuriating.
Keto diets for endurance athletesMany of us will have heard of the advantages of very low carb diets for obese patients and more specifically for diabetics. Going very low carb results in not having as much hunger and much healthier blood glucose levels. Another group that often goes on a keto diet are those who want to prevent tumour growth.
Indigestion and fatsAfter having been vilified for years as useful but tasty nutrient, fats have been embraced again. Contrary to carbohydrates, fats are not just an energy source, but building blocks for the entire body and of utmost importance for immunity and a proper working brains.
