Exercising Might Help You Make Healthier Food Choices, Study Says

Getting healthy can be a daunting endeavor. It can seem impossible to get active, eat better, sleep more, stay hydrated and do the many other things your doctor says you should do, all at once. But recent research suggests there’s a single best place to begin. According to a study published in the International Journal of Obesity, starting an exercise regimen may also inspire you to eat more healthfully. “It’s hard to start a diet. Most people feel deprived from the get-go,” says study co-author Molly Bray, chair of the department of nutritional sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. “Instead of taking something away, you can add physical activity to your life, and the consequent changes may be significant changes in the way you eat.” For the study, researchers recruited more than 2,500 college students who said they didn’t diet and exercised for less than 30 minutes a week. The students were put on a 15-week aerobic exercise plan that involved doing guided cardio for 30-60 minutes, three times a week. Each person was asked to fill out a diet questionnaire at the beginning and end of the study. They were told not to change their eating habits. But many of them did anyway. About 2,000 stuck with the exercise plan, and they were more likely than those who didn’t to eat healthier without being told to, the researchers found. Many of the exercisers started eating more nutritious foods, like fruits, vegetables, lean meats, ...

[The sleep apnoea syndrome: Clinical characteristics of affected patients in the hospital population of Château-Thierry]. Rev Mal Respir. 2019 Mar 18;: Authors: Goddaert C, Jender A, Zulfiqar AA Abstract INTRODUCTION: The sleep apnoea syndrome (SAS) is a public health problem particularly due to its involvement in cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate the epidemiological characteristics of the affected population in order to facilitate screening for SAS.

(The Endocrine Society) When trying to lose weight by cutting calories, people who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in addition to obesity can lose more weight if they treat their sleep disorder with an overnight CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, machine. This finding of a new study will be presented Saturday at ENDO 2019, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in New Orleans, La.

ConclusionReducing overall use of screen technologies and displacing it with other active pursuits, increasing sleep duration, and promoting healthy lifestyle behaviors could be an effective approach to attenuate increased risks of overweight or obesity and improve health of children and adolescents.

Publication date: April 2019Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements, Volume 11, Issue 2Author(s): C. Calissi, M. Pesse, M. Détrait, E. Belaidi-Corsat, C. ArnaudBackgroundChronic intermittent hypoxia (IH) is the major feature of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA), well known to induce cardiac remodeling and contractile dysfunction as well as systemic insulin resistance. Currently, no studies have investigated the impact of IH on cardiac insulin signaling. Thus, we aimed to highlight the effects of chronic IH in both lean and obese mice on:– cardiac insulin signaling;– cardiac...

It’s no surprise to most of us that loneliness has become an epidemic. In fact, those with mental health issues experience loneliness at an alarming rate. The one group most affected, however, appears to be the elderly, with millions of older adults across the Unites States feeling lonely. Major health risks such as heart disease and dementia often come along with this loneliness. In October 2018, the University of Michigan National Poll on Healthy Aging asked a national sample of adults age 50-80 about their health, health behaviors, and experiences and feelings related to companionship and social isolation. The res...

Abstract Obesity is the only known modifiable risk factor for multiple myeloma (MM), an incurable cancer of bone marrow plasma cells. The mechanism linking the two is unknown. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of sleep apnea, which results in chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH), and drives solid tumor aggressiveness. Given the link between CIH and solid tumor progression, we tested the hypothesis that CIH drives the proliferation of MM cells in culture and their engraftment and progression in vivo. Malignant mouse 5TGM1 cells were cultured in CIH, static hypoxia (SH) or normoxia as a control in custom, g...
