Weight loss: THIS is how to find the perfect diet plan for you and lose weight fast

Weight loss is easier when you are following a diet plan that is specifically catered to your needs. Unfortunately not all diets suit every person.What helps one person shed some pounds could do the opposite for another, so what is the solution?Testing your gut ‘microbiome’ is one way you can find out exactly what your body needs, which can in turn help you lose weight.Diets based on assessing your microbiome have been recommended by various nutritionists, including Jeannette Hyde who claims her diet helps followers lose 13 lbs in four weeks.Her diet is based on cleansing your microbiome, however, there are other methods that can tell you exactly what you should be eating and what your stomach reacts badly to.Doctor Raphael Kellman claimed that the microbiome diet was the next paleo die

Response to a Low-Calorie Diet Linked to Different Gene Expression Patterns

A study identifies genes that may be involved in controlling BMI, insulin sensitivity, and glucose metabolism by comparing gene expression patterns in a group of overweight and obese, non-diabetic individuals after a low-calorie diet.We are all well aware of various low-calorie diet plans and perhaps have even tried to lose weight by adopting such diet plans. However, we also know that not all of us have the same capacity to lose and maintain weight. Furthermore, weight loss, in general, improves insulin sensitivity and reduces fasting glucose and insulin levels, but again, the degree of improvement varies from individual to individual.Previous studies have shown that only half the individuals with significant weight loss after being on a low-calorie diet had sustained improvements in g...

CLEVELAND, Ohio --The highest number ever of some sexually transmitted diseases were reported in the United States in 2016, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.That included more than 2 million new cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis, according to a recent CDC report. STDs are rapidly growing among women, infants and gay and bisexual men.The increase is a serious threat because sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth and increased risk for HIV transmission if left untreated, the agency warned."STDs are a persistent enemy, growing in number and outpacing our ability to respond," Dr. Jonathan Mermin of the CDC said in an emailed statement. Mermin is director of the CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hep...

Updated | Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, with an annual research budget of around $480 million, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. But the “holy grail” of contemporary dementia research is determining the risk factors that make people more likely to develop the disease, neurologist Ronald Petersen, who directs the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and Study of Aging at the Mayo Clinic, tells Newsweek.Risk factor research is just as important as treatment development, Petersen says, since the two work together: first detection and then prevention. Once viable pre-dementia medications are found, doctors can use them in the intervention stage, similar to how cholesterol drugs lower heart

Mother who refuses to follow court order to vaccinate son: 'Most likely, I'll be going to jail'

(iStock)A Michigan woman said she will “most likely” go to jail this week if she refuses a court order to vaccinate her 9-year-old son.And Rebecca Bredow, it seems, is willing to take that risk.“I can’t give in against my own religious belief,” she told The Washington Post on Saturday. “This is about choice. This is about having my choices as a mother to be able to make medical choices for my child.”Bredow, who lives in a Detroit suburb, has been embroiled in a custody battle with her ex-husband, James Horne. Last November, an Oakland County court sided with Horne, ordering Bredow to get their son vaccinated. But she has so far not done so. Bredow said the county judge had given her until Wednesday to get her son the medically allowed amount of vaccination, which wou
