Warming up to 'hot yoga'

http://centretownnewsonline.ca

All puns aside, the “hottest” new health and wellness trend to hit Preston Street in the last two months has been hot yoga. It’s just what it sounds like: a series of traditional yoga postures, but practiced in a room that is heated up to 38 degrees Celsius. Participants say they get a much deeper stretch than they would with regular yoga and generally feel invigorated after the routine. “It’s a great all-around physical workout.

Colon cleanser: Aids in weight loss programs

http://www.bestsyndication.com

Colon cleansers used in aiding weight loss are taken over a period of days during which the body undergoes cleansing as a result of the agents. As you are required to eat less during this time the cleanser works well by removing toxins from the body. Other wastes are equally removed such as harmful parasites and fecal matter that grows on the walls of the intestines. This works in two folds. Because of the elimination of the waste that had accumulated in the colon, the body experiences a considerable amount of weight loss.

Zone Diet Creator Dr. Barry Sears to Talk About Latest Book Toxic Fat

http://news.prnewswire.com

A turning point in his research occurred in 1982. That year, the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded for discoveries of the role that specialized hormones, known as eicosanoids, play in the development of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, auto-immune diseases, and cancer. Since eicosanoids are only generated from dietary fat, Dr. Sears reasoned that one could apply intravenous drug delivery principles to nutrition in order to control these exceptionally powerful hormonal responses with laser-like precision. In essence, his approach treats food as if it were a drug.

The benefits of fasting: more energy, a longer life

http://www.denverpost.com

Called intermittent fasting, this rather stark approach to weight control appears to be supported by science, not to mention various religious and cultural practices around the globe. The practice is a way to become more circumspect about food, its adherents say. But it also seems to yield the benefits of calorie restriction, which may ultimately reduce the risk of some diseases and even extend life. Some fasters, in fact, ultimately switch from regular, if comparatively rare, periods of hunger to permanent deprivation. They limit calories all the time.

Calories Count, Diets Fail

http://www.livescience.com

Health met physics in last week's New England Journal of Medicine with a study revealing that the type of diet doesn't matter so much for weight loss — be it low-fat, low-carb, 70-percent yak meat or whatever — as long as one simple requirement is met: Consume fewer calories than you burn. The discovery harkens back to the Age of Enlightenment and the law of conservation of energy, a concept lost in the fad-diet world for the last 200 years. That said, not all diets are created equal.

Genzyme's Lumizyme faces delay after FDA rejection

http://uk.reuters.com

U.S. regulators have declined to approve Genzyme Corp's new Lumizyme treatment for Pompe disease, a setback the drugmaker said could delay its approval for six months and crimp 2009 earnings. Genzyme, whose shares fell more than 5 percent in after-hours activity, currently sells Myozyme to treat the rare and often-fatal inherited disorder. But because Myozyme is made in relatively small 160-liter batches in the United States, the drug is only commercially available to children and infants. The biotechnology company had asked the U.S.

There's more to the equation than calories in versus calories out

http://www.examiner.com

Most of us have taken a basic health class in high school/grammar school/college/etc. One of the basic building blocks of the class was to record an average daily caloric intake. Then from these numbers you could break down your intake vs. what you "should" intake. Simple math equations have been posted on several well known websites (daily caloric needs calculator) . Basically the objective your teacher was trying to say was "based on your body type, you should be eating 'x' amount of calories to maintain your weight.
