Fitness Trainers Gain 60 Lbs. and Drop it Again to Show How Hard it is to Lose Weight – Everyday Diabetes

Fitness Trainers Gain 60 Lbs. and Drop it Again to Show How Hard it is to Lose Weight

SHARE

Fitness trainers, and husband and wife, Sharny and Julius Kieser, wanted to show that after gaining weight that they could gain it back and lost it again. So they purposely gained 60 lbs.

Sound strange?

According to the Queensland, Australia-based fitness experts had already packed on a couple of pounds after the birth of their fifth child, “We just let go with our eating. Let the food take us wherever it wanted to go,” said Sharny, 36, told People Magazine.

According to the article:

By May, about three months after Magnus’ birth, the couple had started the slow process of losing the weight they’d gained, but had a late-night revelation.

“We were scrolling through Facebook and looking at all the fitness people and thinking, ‘What do they know about being fat, about being parents, about being addicted to food.’ ” she says. “We were just about to start losing weight quietly again, so our followers didn’t know we’d gotten to this state. Then we remembered why we had gotten into fitness in the first place. We wanted to be completely transparent.”

“We are not fitness models, we are just a mum and a dad who use fitness as a way to connect with each other and spend time with our kids. By hiding the fact that we were getting fat, we were being dishonest. We were perpetrating a myth that fitness is a permanent state and is easy.”

Eating Fresh Fruits Daily may Lower Diabetes Risk Says Study – Everyday Diabetes

Eating Fresh Fruits Daily may Lower Diabetes Risk Says Study

SHARE

An apple a day truly keeps the doctor away. And true to its promise, a recent study shows that eating fresh fruits daily may help lower your risk for diabetes. A study of half a million people in China found those who ate fruit daily were 12% less likely to get type 2 diabetes than those who never or rarely ate it.

The team found that people who did not have diabetes at the beginning of the study and consumed fresh fruit in high amounts had a significantly lower risk of diabetes. Additionally, those who had diabetes at the beginning of the study and consumed high amounts of fruit had a significantly lower risk of dying from any cause, as well as a lower risk of developing cardiovascular complications.

NHS UK reports:

It was also found that people with diabetes at the start of the study who ate fruit regularly were slightly less likely to die or to get complications of diabetes, such as eye problems (diabetic retinopathy), during the study than those who ate fruit rarely or never.

The study was carried out by researchers from the University of Oxford, and Peking University, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment, Non-communicable Disease Prevention and Control Department, and Pengzhou Center for Disease Control and Prevention, all in China. It was funded by the Kadoorie Charitable Foundation.

Dietary Supplements for Diabetics: Yay or Nay? – Everyday Diabetes

Dietary Supplements for Diabetics: Yay or Nay?

SHARE

There is a myriad of supplements available in your nearest drugstore claiming that they’re diabetes-friendly, but the question is, should you take these?  More than 50 percent of people with diabetes say they’ve used dietary supplements, according to one 2011 study—and at least one in four has given herbal remedies a try.

Some studies have been done on consumption of specific supplements, like omega-3 and probiotic, as a treatment for diabetes and risk reduction, respectfully. Vitamin D, omega-3, magnesium, psyllium, cinnamon, and alpha-lipoic acid, may have some potential benefits for diabetics according to an article published by Reader’s Digest. They also added that fenugreek, chromium, and bitter melon should be avoided.

RD.com reports:

In consulting the latest research as well as supplement experts for this report on the best-studied and most widely used supplements, we found that some popular pills—chromium, we’re talking about you—aren’t living up to their reputations. Others, such as vitamin D or psyllium, may be more promising. Still others should be avoided because they make false claims (supplements that promote weight loss tend to be a red flag).
