Dairy Is A Must For Weight Loss

A lot of us do not get around to weight loss until the pounds we are packing start to take a toll on the joints and bones. But heads up, don’t put your bones in jeopardy in your effort to give them a break. There are a lot of approaches to dieting and losing weight, or should I say lifestyle adjustments, but one thing you should always do is drink your milk.  Hey Mom knew best!

Berries Fuel Brain Power & Prevent Memory Loss

I am trying to eat healthier, shed some weight, workout more…you know,  relive the New Year’s resolutions from the past 15 years…anyway, I spotted an interesting study about the power of berries!

“Eating berries at least once a week protects the brain from age related memory loss, according to a major Harvard Medical School study. Researchers focuses on the diets and health of 16,000 women and tracked them for more than 20 years.”

Sounds pretty comprehensive…I was wondering if the benefits were significant and if I would have to live the life of a forest creature to eat enough to do me any good…SURPRISE!  Read on! “Mental function tests were regularly administered during the final six years. The astonishing results: Those who ate the most blueberries and strawberries had a slower rate of memory loss than those who ate the least the difference was equal to about two and a half years of aging. Surprisingly, the biggest berry eaters consumed only a single half cup serving of blueberries or two half cup servings of strawberries each week.”

Older Mothers Deliver “Smarter” Babies!

 

Is this the fruits of maturity? A study found that the offspring of older women are less likely to have accidents or need hospital care and more likely to have been vaccinated early. They will also develop a broader vocabulary from a young age and achieve higher scores in IQ tests in a range of measures up to the age of five. A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all the older moms.  Chances are the cards and gifts you received were “smarter” because chances are your kids are smarter! Despite the many fears associated with older moms, children born to mothers over 40 are apparently healthier and smarter than those of younger women.

Teenage Sex Leads To Higher Divorce Rates

I was watching television the other day with my three-year-old daughter Katie in my lap, as usual, and a Subaru commercial came on. The dad was giving this little girl last minute safe driving instructions and then the keys, as she turns into a 16-year-old out for her first solo drive.

News Flash! Binge Drinking Causes Beer Bellies

You know what “they”  say about starting a weight loss program….talk about it…make it known that you are trying to shed a few so that others can watch your behavior and  help hold you to it…by way of encouragement or humiliation… depending upon the personality of your friends.  So I’m in…let the humiliation begin.  But as I prepare to say good-by to the beer belly, let’s at least acknowledge from whence it came. AskMen.com reports a beer belly comes from binging, not necessarily beer drinking. A study at University College London examined data from 28,594 middle-aged men and women, and found that beer drinkers aren't more likely to have abdominal fat than non-beer drinkers. (Good point…mine is clearly cheeseburger driven.)  People who drink 80 grams of alcohol in a single sitting once a month -- about a six-pack of beer or a bottle of wine -- average a half-inch bigger waistline than people who drink the same amount of alcohol spread over a week.
