(CNN) — Should you eat before or after exercise in the morning? The debate has raged for years. The eat-first camp says food before exercise boosts blood sugars, giving the body fuel to increase the intensity and length of a workout. It also keeps you from being fatigued or dizzy. The eat-after camp says you burn more fat if you fast before exercise. A small UK study published Friday supports the latter point of view: In 30 obese or overweight men, those who exercised before breakfast burned twice the fat as men who ate breakfast before they worked out. That’s because exercising with no fuel forces the body to ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Body mass index (BMI) is linked to Type 2 diabetes (T2D). Although romantic partners influence each other's health outcomes, it is unclear if partner's BMI is related to the development of T2D. PURPOSE: To test prospective, dyadic associations between BMI and the development of T2D in middle-aged and older adult couples over 8 years. METHODS: Data came from 950 couples in the Health and Retirement Study. Neither partner had diabetes at baseline (2006). The actor-partner interdependence model was used to examine dyadic associations between BMI at baseline and the development of T2D du...

(CNN) — Sitting is the new smoking, we’re told, and suddenly sit-stand desks are everywhere. But do we know just how healthy they are and the best ways to use them? Science is just now catching up to the trend, and you might be surprised at what research has uncovered. “When they first came out, sit-stand desks were marketed as a way to lose weight, right? The next kind of cure to obesity,” said April Chambers, assistant professor of bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh. “And they just don’t do that.” Chambers and colleagues from Tufts University and the Office Ergonomics...

Surely, some things can never be forgiven, should never be forgiven? Susie was 48 years old, and came for counseling for burnout in her highly responsible job. It took three sessions before she trusted me enough to tell me her story. Thirty years before, a man had brutally raped her. She’d spent three weeks in hospital, and has physical handicaps from it to this day. The court hearing was even more traumatizing. He showed no remorse. His story was that she’d initiated contact, invited sex, then backed out at the last minute, hitting him and scratching his face, so he defended himself, and “um… went...

Weight gain has many underlying causes but one of the most common is something we all experience: stress. Whether it’s the, mild temporary kind caused by a traffic jam or major and chronic, triggered by a traumatic life event — stress is no friend to your waistline. It can set off physical and emotional changes that drive you to eat more, crave less nutritious, fattening comfort foods — and even gain weight much more easily. Stress-eating and cortisol “Stress drives up levels of a hormone called cortisol in the blood,” says Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical...
