We examined the effects of the independent and combined effects of Zataria Multiflora supplementation and circuit resistance training (CRT) on selected adipokines among postmenopausal women. Forty-eight postmenopausal women were divided into four groups: Exercise (EG, n = 12), Zataria Multiflora (ZMG, n = 12), exercise and Zataria Multiflora (ZMEG, n = 12), and control (CG, n = 12). Participants in experimental groups either performed CRT (3 sessions per week with intensity at 55% of one-repetition maximum) or supplemented with Zataria Multiflora (500 mg every day after breakfast with 100 ml of water), or their combination...

You happen to be among the two-thirds of Americans with overweight and obesity (defined as a body mass index of 25 or greater), and you are just thrilled to go to your next doctor’s appointment, right? Wrong! Unfortunately, if you have a diagnosis of overweight or obesity, you might find the doctor’s office to be the least inviting place to be. Maybe you find that there are no chairs to accommodate you in the waiting room. When the medical staff takes your blood pressure, you might find that they struggle to find the right size cuff. You might feel as though you are weighed in a disrespectful fashion. Or maybe,...

ConclusionsIn this investigation, approximately half of the participants were able to lose a clinically significant amount of weight utilizing a minimally intensive intervention with little additional support. MISS-ABT participants were adherent to treatment and lost significantly more weight than participants eligible for stepped care but randomized to continue with SH. A number of psychological factors discriminated between those who were successful and unsuccessful at losing weight. The current preliminary research offers support to continue investigating ABT's potential beneficial effects in promoting weight loss outcomes.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The study objective was to empirically identify subgroups of patients with obesity and investigate their association with postoperative weight change. METHODS: A longitudinal analysis of 2,458 adults in the Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery (LABS) study was used. Baseline data were used to identify subgroups. The outcome was 3-year weight change after bariatric surgery. RESULTS: We identified four classes (subtypes) of obesity, which could be characterized as diabetes with low rates of high-density lipoprotein (Class 1), disordered eating (Class 2), mixed (Class 3), and ext...

ConclusionsBED and NES are common in adults with T2DM, and  BED is associated with higher BMI in patients with T2DM. However, only two studies reported important outcomes measures such as BMI and HbA1c in patients with T2DM. Hence, further well-designed studies are needed to assess the impact of BED and NES in patients with T2DM. Health Care Professionals should consider the diagnosis of BED and NES in patients with T2DM.

Prevalence of obesity (body mass index [BMI] ≥30 kg/m2) today has become a growing concern worldwide (WHO, 2016). In addition to the well-documented physical health risks, such as diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, hypertension and certain types of cancer (Mensink et al., 2013), obesity carries out several adverse effects on psycholo gical well-being. For instance, adults with obesity experience poorer quality of life and more mental distress compared to the general population (e.g., Abilés et al., 2010; Kolotkin et al., 2012; Luppino et al., 2010), and individuals diagnosed with binge eating disorder (BED) ar...

Conclusions: Examining BED, given the current obesity epidemic, is an important area of study. Findings suggest that BST is statistically and clinically more effective than CBT in treating BED, promoting weight loss, and improving global functioning among women with BED and comorbid obesity 1 year after treatment. Telemedicine may be instrumental in reducing attrition. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

CONCLUSION: We found a complex gender-related association between MS, psychosocial risk factors and occupational determinants. The use of these information in surveillance workplace programs might prevent the onset of MS and decrease the chance of negative long-term outcomes. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V, observational study.
