Could a very low calorie diet 'cure' type 2 diabetes?
Conclusion The study points to the possibility that some people with type 2 diabetes may be able to be treated with diet alone if they are able to lose enough excess weight – and keep it off. However, the results we have are from a small group of highly motivated volunteers, so we don't know how many people would be able to follow the diet and keep the weight off afterwards. An intake of 700 calories a day is around a third of the recommended intake for a woman (2,000 calories) and around a quarter of the intake for a man (2,500 calories). Even the most committed dieter may find it hard to stick to these limits.&nb...

Turns Out Diet Soda Appears To Be The Lesser Of Two Evils
If you’re trying to kick sugary sodas, some scientists and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention both recommend swapping them out with a diet soda. After all, the sugar from soda is strongly linked to obesity, type 2 diabetes and dental cavities, while diet soda has no sugar in it at all. But one strange thing about diet soda is that the people who drink it are actually more likely to have larger waist sizes (a measure of belly fat) than those who drink regular soda. Diet soda drinkers are also more likely to have type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome than people who didn’t drink diet soda a...

Mediterranean diet and treating diabetes and depression in old age may reduce dementia risk
The long 'preclinical' phase including mild cognitive impairment-stage (MCI) in the course of Alzheimer's disease (AD) provide the opportunity for preventive interventions to reduce the risk for conversion to dementia or rather slow disease progression.1 Currently, neither psychopharmacological nor non-pharmacological strategies turned out to prevent patients with MCI from converting to AD. There is increasing evidence that the risk for conversion from MCI to AD could be reduced by modifying life style and consequent treatment of especially the metabolic syndrome. Further,...

Don't Choose A Low-Carb Diet Just Because You Think It's 'Healthy'
Carbohydrates don’t have a very good reputation these days. Fans of popular low-carb diets like Atkins, Paleo, South Beach Diet and Whole30 are convinced that cutting them out of your diet is the key to dropping pounds and keeping the weight off for good. About 29 percent of Americans said they were “actively” avoiding carbs in a 2014 Gallup poll, and recent scientific studies that compare low-carb diets to low-fat diets show that -- at least in the short periods they’re part of the study -- participants have more success losing weight and improving their health if they restrict carbs, not fat. ...

The Importance of Detoxification for Health
Spring is upon us, a perfect time of year for detoxification. As the seasons change, many of us are motivated to do 'spring cleaning' in our homes and gardens. The same need applies to our bodies. When the body is detoxified, it can function more efficiently and gain resilience. Physicians have been seeing increasing symptoms of toxicity in their patients over the last few decades. Hormone imbalances, obesity, mental fog, memory loss, fatigue, lack of vitality, metabolic syndrome, sleep disturbances are all manifestations of a toxic body. Conventional medicine does not acknowledge toxicity as an important health issue, b...

Just one hour of sitting down may increase diabetes risk by a fifth
ConclusionThis study adds to existing evidence which suggests the amount of time we spend physically inactive, either sitting or lying down, could have a poor effect on our health. It does not, however, prove that sitting for long periods causes diabetes. The study has some strengths, including its size and the fact that activity levels were measured objectively. Activity levels in the Netherlands are likely to be similar to those in the UK, so these findings may also apply to us. However, the cross-sectional design of the study means it cannot show that sedentary behaviour is a cause of diabetes, even when taking account ...
