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!
Why do elderly people suffer more easily from dehydration?
Normally, our summers tend to alternate between cooler and warmer days with plenty of rain, but at the moment we experience a prolonged period of unusually warm and dry weather. This is probably why it is not so common to warn against dehydration among elderly adults on hot summer days, which is a grave mistake.
While even healthy younger adults have a hard time staying properly hydrated in the heat, elderly citizens have an especially hard time because they don't even drink enough in cooler weather.
It’s important to prevent dehydration because it’s a common cause of hospitalization in people over 65 and can even cause death.
Dehydration can also cause other major health problems like kidney stones, blood clot complications, passing out, rapid but weak pulse, and lowered blood pressure. Being properly hydrated is also very important for certain medications to work.
Because water has numerous functions in the human body, it is one of the most important nutrients and is essential in every life stage. However, with aging, the body’s mechanisms of water balance are disturbed, increasing the risk of dehydration among the elderly.
There are high rates of dehydration in the elderly population and dehydration is one of the ten most frequent diagnoses reported for hospitalisations of persons over 65 in the United States.
Can you be addicted to cheese?
A few days ago, a friend challenged me to go vegan for a day! While I've been a lax vegetarian (lax as in sometimes eating fish) for well over 15 years, I've never ever gone further and banned all animal-derived products from my diet. The most obvious ones being dairy and honey.
Of the two, giving up honey makes the most sense, knowing how much work these hard working bees that are in fact, even an endangered species put into making honey. Given how important these adorable little insects are for nearly every plant species that needs pollination, it makes sense to think about building a so-called 'bee hotel' for them when you happen to have a lot of flowers and trees in your garden and aren't afraid of bees.
By chance, this weekend will be devoted to the first 'National Bee counting Day' on which Dutch citizens aree encouraged to count the amount of bees in your garden and if possible, specify which of the 100+ species it may be.
My response to giving up dairy was a lot more visceral! It was more like "you will need to pry it out of my cold dead fingers!"
With 'it' I am referring to most dairy products, with cheese, yoghurt and ice cream as the main comfort foods.
But is addiction to cheese a real thing? Or bread for that matter?
The unofficial history of sports supplements in the USA - Part IIIn Part I of this series, we traced the development of how supplements were designed and marketed. Since their very conception, supplements have always provided a pseudo panacea for virtually every health-related problem. Fatigue, slow muscle growth, even impotence can supposedly be cured with natural substances attempting to simulate the effects of drugs through "natural" pathways. Although it's true that various nutrients and herbal compounds have been proven to be quite effective, there was a period circa the early 1990s when the distinction between "natural" and "chemical" became blurred.
The unofficial history of sports supplements in the USA - Part IThis is a story that had to be told. As most everyone who's been involved with bodybuilding for any appreciable amount of time knows, the business of supplements has a history fraught with deceit and deception. The very term "snake oil," a colloquial expression used to describe any fraudulent product, stems from the days of the traveling salesman of the nineteenth century who sold "tonics" and "elixirs" to gullible townsfolk with the promise of increased vigor and vitality. The marketing strategies of today's hucksters may be more sophisticated, but the message is the same:
If you want more ___________ [fill in the blank...muscle, hair, stamina, sex], then buy this product!
Why should I care about meal frequency?Why should I care about eating several times a day? A straight answer is, because it works!
It works if you wish to burn fat and maintain a good muscular attractive physique when you are over 40. Back in 2009 I was pretty darn fit and strong and in the best shape of my life while eating small meals five to six times a day and working out right after work around 7pm.
