HealthWatch: Low-Carb Vs. Low-Fat? Probably Doesn ’ t Matter
This study also looked specifically at the subjects’ genetics when it comes to metabolizing fat and carbohydrates, as well as, how their bodies secrete insulin and found that neither of those things seemed to matter when it came to weight loss with the two different diets. Scientists have wondered whether some diets fit a person’s biology better than others and this is an area which will continue to be studied. In the meantime, it’s probably best to find a meal plan that you can stick to. (Source: WBZ-TV - Breaking News, Weather and Sports for Boston, Worcester and New Hampshire)

Which Is Better for Weight Loss, a Low-Fat Diet or a Low-Carb Diet?
There’s long been debate over whether low-fat or low-carb diets are better for weight loss. Some dieters swear by plans that eliminate grains, fruits and other carbohydrates, while others defend diets that cut down on red meat, dairy and other fatty foods. So who’s right? Both — and neither, according to new research published in JAMA. In a 600-person, year-long study, the two eating styles helped dieters drop almost exactly the same number of pounds — and there didn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason as to who succeeded on which plan, explains study author Christopher Gardner, director of nut...

We live in a weight-obsessed world. Not only are we exposed to a constant barrage of images of the “perfect body,” but when it comes to attaining it we tend to focus on all the wrong things.

HealthWatch: Which Plant-Based Milk Is The Most Nutritious?
BOSTON (CBS) — Millions of Americans have turned to plant-based milk as an alternative to cow’s milk, but which variety is the healthiest? Researchers from McGill University found that while none of them proves as nutritious as cow’s milk, soy milk reigns supreme when compared to rice, almond and coconut milk. Soy milk is a better source of protein and contains phytonutrients which may have some anti-cancer properties. Almond milk has larger amounts of healthy fats but less protein. Coconut milk has virtually no protein, and rice milk has the weakest nutritional value. Rice milk is higher in calories and ...
