• Is It Harder to Lose Weight When You Have a Cold or the Flu?

    You may consider the scale your friend after dealing with a cold or flu. Between your loss of appetite and fever, you may notice that you’ve lost a few pounds after your week of being sick. However, you may have a hard time keeping the weight off when you start to feel better. Consult your doctor to discuss your illness and diet.

    Sickness and Weight Loss

    Although the duration of your cold or flu may vary, it usually lasts a week or less. If you’ve lost a noticeable amount of weight during that time, it’s more than likely you haven’t lost much, if any, unwanted fat. FamilyDoctor.org says if you lose more than 2 pounds in a week, you’re losing more water and muscle than fat.

    Eating and Drinking When You’re Sick

    You may not feel like eating when you’re sick, but it’s important to try to eat, or at least drink, for nutrition and hydration. Good choices include clear juices, sport drinks, broth and water.

    Soup, such as chicken noodle soup, makes a good choice when you’re sick because the fluids and sodium help you stay hydrated, while the chicken provides protein. If you’re feeling nauseous, try to nibble on crackers, toast or plain pasta or rice.

    Eating During Recovery

    One sign you’re feeling better is the return of your appetite. However, after eating poorly for a few days, you may be ravenous, which may make it hard for you to control your eating to keep the weight off. While it might be difficult to prevent some of those pounds from returning, filling your diet with low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods during your recovery phase may help limit some of the weight gain and help reduce your risk of gaining more weight than you started with.

    Eating for Immune Health

    While you can’t fight off every cold or flu bug, making the right food choices may help keep your immune system healthy and strong, which may improve your body’s fight against these bugs. Immune-boosting foods include fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

    Eating more of these filling, low-calorie foods may also make it easier for you to get to and maintain a healthy weight, which is also good for immune health.

    Season 3 Trailer

    So what do you guys think? Did you enjoy season 2 like i did? Are you pumped for season 3?  Leave you interesting comments below and lets have a chat 😀

  • Madhouse Isn’t Doing One Punch Man Season 2

    When hit anime One Punch Man comes back for its second season, the studio that handled it the first time around won’t be returning.

    Madhouse did season one, which debuted in 2015. That studio has an impressive resume, animating some of the most iconic modern anime, such as Perfect Blue, Death Note, and Paprika.

    Season two, however, will be animated by J.C. Staff. Also, season one’s original director Shingo Natsume won’t be returning, and Chikara Sakurai will instead be taking the helm.

    Below is an interview with Natsume that was uploaded this past summer in which he talks about One Punch Man.

    One Punch Man season 2 is currently in production, but it doesn’t yet have a broadcast date.

  • How genes impact our appetites

    How much can we control our own weight?

    A faulty gene affecting our brain’s circuits can impact on appetite making us feel hungry when we shouldn’t be, researchers have found.

    Professor Sadaf Farooqi, Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Fellow and Professor of Metabolism and Medicine at the University of Cambridge, has looked at the impact genes have on the regulation of our appetite and body weight.


    How Do Genes Control Weight?

    Our body weight is determined by the amount of energy or calories that we eat and the number of calories we burn up doing whatever we do in our everyday lives. Rather like these scales, if we eat more calories than we burn, we tip the balance the wrong way and put on weight.

    In today’s world, we all have easy access to high fat and high calorie foods and many of us have a reduced need for physical exertion during our working and home lives. This can lead over a period of time to a gain in weight. So is it simply about eating too much food and taking too little exercise? And why do some people put on weight more easily than others?

    We know that not everyone in the same environment will put on weight, so there must be something else involved? There is a lot of evidence to show that genes play a major role in determining our weight in the same way as they control the colour of our hair and eyes. We also know that weight problems can run in families.

    Here in Cambridge, we have gone on to discover that sometimes being overweight from a very young age can be due to a faulty gene. This faulty gene may cause someone to always feel hungry, especially as a child. It may also affect the way calories are used up from the food we eat and cause excess calories to be stored as fat


    Learn About Genes

    I’m sure you have heard people say “it’s in your genes” as this is often how we explain the many different characteristics which make each and everyone one of us unique.

    In fact, we all inherit two copies of every gene, one from our mother and one from our father.  This means that members of the same family tend to be similar, as they are likely to have fewer differences in their genes.


    How do genes work?

    Our bodies are made up of many tiny units called cells each containing a complete copy of a person’s genes. We all have many thousands of genes and they contain the “genetic instructions” that we inherit from our parents. These “instructions” make us have blonde or dark hair, blue or brown eyes and even determine our body shape. They also control the way every cell in our body develops and grows and what it will do in our body, so they are very important!

     

    Genes are made from a “chemical” called “DNA” (deoxyribonucleic acid) and are arranged in a specific sequence along very long thread-like structures of DNA called chromosomes, rather like a string of beads.

    We all have approximately 30 to 40,000 genes stretched out along our DNA. Scientists have discovered what some of these genes do and how changes in these genes can cause particular disorders or diseases. There are however many genes which we still don’t know much about.

    The genetic information in the DNA of our genes is in the form of a code and this is known as the “genetic code”.


    How does the genetic code work?

    It is all rather complicated. You need to think of the DNA being made of 2 strands of a mix of 4 different chemicals called “bases” which face each other and connect as pairs rather like the rungs of a ladder.

    We use the first letter of each chemical as our code, so there is: Adenine, Thiamine, Cytosine and Guanine (ATCG). These 4 letters we will call “the DNA alphabet” and in the same way that letters of the alphabet combine to form words and sentences that mean something when we read them, the order of these chemicals are the “letters” which spell out the genetic code and the instructions to our bodies.

    A single gene may be many thousands of letters long rather like the MC4R gene shown here.

     


    What do these letters mean?

    This is where it gets even more complicated. To be able to understand the code it needs to be read as “3 letter words” called “codons” and each set of 3 letters correspond to another chemical called an “amino acid”.

    There are 20 different amino acids that can be made from the different word combinations and our bodies use them to make proteins, often referred to as the “building blocks” of our body. Many different proteins can be made such as keratin in our hair or haemoglobin in our blood to carry the oxygen that we breathe-in to all parts of our body.

    So, genes are pieces of DNA that give instructions using chemically coded “messages” that can make proteins for our bodies to use. There may be hundreds, or even thousands, of three letter words in each gene message and sometimes things can go wrong.


    What happens when there are changes in the genetic code?

    If a single letter (base) in the sequence is out of place, a “spelling mistake” can occur. This can result in different “messages” that our bodies can’t understand, or a protein that doesn’t work properly or at all.

    Individual letters or one or more whole words can be missing or even extra to what is required. In fact, even a whole gene can be missing!

    As DNA passes from one generation to another through our genes, changes can happen to the code and these changes are known as “mutations”.


    What is a mutation?

    A mutation or faulty gene is a permanent change in a gene which may cause a problem with the development and functioning of many different parts of our body. Not all mutations cause problems.

    A mutation can occur in several ways. Some faulty genes are inherited from our parents and may run in the family. Others can occur spontaneously and are called “de novo” mutations and may explain why a child can have a particular condition or disease even if there is no history of anyone else having the disease in the family.

    The DNA code can also be changed by errors in the chromosomes.


    What Genes Have We Found?

    The first gene we found was the leptin gene in 1997. Children with a problem in the leptin gene put on weight very quickly and at a very early age.

    The children are always hungry, never feel full and will seek out and ask for food even after they have just eaten. The reason for this continual drive to eat is because the children are lacking the hormone leptin which sends messages to the brain to tell us to stop eating because we are full.  For these children, it has been possible to treat them with daily injections of the hormone leptin. The children are now normal weight, and it has also reversed a number of other problems that can be caused by the lack of leptin.

    Leptin deficiency is very rare. We have now identified 11 other genes that can cause severe weight gain and we expect to find more with the new technologies that are now available to us.

    We would, however, like to tell you a little bit about one of these genes called Melanocortin-4-Receptor (MC4R) because it is the commonest cause of severe weight problems in children. Many families with MC4R gene problems have very kindly come to Cambridge to help us with our studies and with their help we have learnt a lot about this gene. We know that the MC4R gene is involved in the same pathway in the brain as leptin, so children often feel hungry all the time. Children (and adults) are often very tall, and tests of body composition show an increase in bone and muscle mass compared to patients without this gene problem. We have also found that patients with an MC4R problem do not burn up the calories from food efficiently.   One of the most important findings was that the MC4R gene is also involved in controlling blood pressure, something that will often be high in people that are overweight. We found that many of our MC4R patients had relatively normal blood pressures and we are looking into what this means for the heart.

    For many of the gene problems that we have identified, including MC4R, there is no obvious treatment available immediately. In fact, finding the gene is the first step to understanding why someone is gaining weight and therefore finding the right treatment.

    So do you guys think? how do you feel like genetics play a role in our appetite and obesity? Leave you interesting comments below and lets have a discussion.

  • Fit to FaT to Fit

    Hey guys its Danny from from Smart & Fit, as you guys know i’m a personal fitness trainer, and i spent most my life as an obese person. I have now spent several years as a fit person (abs, muscle and all).

    To help me remember what challenges the average person goes through to get to fit i’ll be undertake the an extreme weight-loss experiment: by forcing myself to gain weight, that’s right. I’ll be putting on 10 KG of pure fat and not exercising at all so that i can once again understand the struggles of my clients and the average person.During the weight gain process, i will document the radical effects of watching my healthy body deteriorate. Everything from my mental stability and physical energy to my personal relationships will be challenged. After four weeks of gaining weight under medical supervision, i’ll show you guys how to lose all the fat and get back to fit again!


    So let’s get this so on the road!!

    #fit2fat2fit
    #smartandfit

    #transformation

    Week 8

    Just finished week 7 training,  and we are down 1 kg of fat!! Finally broke though that fat loss plateau!! The changes we made work 🙂 So lets keep it going!!

    Week 7

    Just finished week 6 training,  and it seems like the body is still in a  fat loss plateau!! Ok lets not panic, remember it just means that the body has adapted to the demand placed on it.  Meaning its time to makes a few new changes to  shock the body back into growth and access the fat stores. Don’t give up !! we can do it 🙂

    Week 6

    Just finished week 5 training,  and we have hit a fat loss plateau!! Ok guys  lets not panic, all it means is that the body has adapted to the demand placed on it.  Meaning its time to makes a few changes to  shock the body back into growth and access the fat stores.

    Don’t give up !! we can do it 🙂

    Week 5

    Just finished week 4 training,  and we are down 1.7 kg of fat, thats a massive fat loss!! meaning the changes worked, but will the body adapt next week to compensate for this fat loss! well shall find out soon!

    Week 4

    Just finished week 3 training,  and we are down 0.7 kg of fat, so the fat loss has slowed down a bit. its time to make some changes! 🙂

    Week 3

    Just finished 2 week of Training! Just weighed in, and I’m down 1.2kg!!  Excellent!!! lets keep this momentum going and  beat week 3!

    Week 2

    Just finished 1 week of Training! Weigh went well, I’m down 3.6kg!! A Great start and already feeling the difference! so happy to be training again!

    Week 1 Start

    OK its time to begin our transformation. So we went from Fit to Fat, putting on 10 kg of Fat with out any exercise, so we gain a better understanding what alot of people go though, when life throws us a curve ball. SO IT’S TIME TO TRANSFORMATION!

    Now its time to transform, so lets get this show on the road!!!

  • Breakthrough Device Heals Organs with a Single Touch

    Tissue Nanotransfection

    Device instantly delivers new DNA or RNA into living skin cells to change their function

    Device instantly delivers new DNA or RNA into living skin cells to change their function

    (COLUMBUS, Ohio) – Researchers have developed a device that can switch cell function to rescue failing body functions with a single touch. The technology, known as Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions.

       “It takes just a fraction of a second. You simply touch the chip to the wounded area, then remove it,” said Chandan Sen, PhD, director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. “At that point, the cell reprogramming begins.”

       In a series of lab tests, researchers applied the chip to the injured legs of mice that vascular scans showed had little to no blood flow. “We reprogrammed their skin cells to become vascular cells,” Sen said. “Within a week we began noticing the transformation.”

       By the second week, active blood vessels had formed, and by the third week, the legs of the mice were saved—with no other form of treatment.

       “It extends the concept known as gene therapy, and it has been around for quite some time,” said study collaborator James Lee, PhD, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Ohio State. “The difference with our technology is how we deliver the DNA into the cells.”

       The chip, loaded with specific genetic code or certain proteins, is placed on the skin, and a small electrical current creates channels in the tissue. The DNA or RNA is injected into those channels where it takes root and begins to reprogram the cells.

       In a new study published in Nature Nanotechnology, first author Daniel Gallego-Perez of Ohio State demonstrated that the technique worked with up to 98 percent efficiently.

       “What’s even more exciting is that it not only works on the skin, but on any type of tissue,” Sen said. In fact, researchers were able to grow brain cells on the skin surface of a mouse, harvest them, then inject them into the mouse’s injured brain. Just a few weeks after having a stroke, brain function in the mouse was restored, and it was healed.

       Because the technique uses a patient’s own cells and does not rely on medication, researchers expect it to be approved for human trials within a year.

    So what do you guys think? Is this something that can be transferred of to the human body or will it takes years before we able to utilise this technology for the masses? Leave you interesting comments below and lets have a discussion!

  • ‘Significant’ levels of Poo bacteria found in ice at McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King

    More poo in your drinks!

    • Ice samples from KFC, Burger King and McDonald’s shown to be contaminated
    • The ice was sampled at 10 branches of each of the chains – 30 outlets in total
    • Caused by staff not washing their hands thoroughly after going to the toilet

    FFS again  I hear you say! Yes that’s right, after BBC exposed our coffee gains for having Faecal bacteria, now they have examined the 3 most popular fast food restaurant.

    Would you like poo-ice with that? Or some shitty water with that cheat meal?

    We’re sorry to inform you all that the BBC’s Watchdog show has found traces of faecal matter in the ice of randomly-selected branches of KFC, Burger King and McDonald’s.

    The show’s investigators checked for coliforms in the drinking water and ice at three branches of McDonald’s, six samples from Burger King, and seven branches of KFC.

    There should be zero levels of the bacteria in drinking water.

    But – disgustingly – four of the samples of ice from Burger King and five from KFC were found to have ‘significant’ levels of coliforms.

    An expert described the revelation as ‘extremely worrying’. Remember that the acceptable levels are ZERO!!!!

    As you can imagine, each of the fast food giants involved were quick to respond to Watchdog’s findings.

    KFC shut down the ice machines in question in order to conduct its own inspection, and said it had ‘reinforced the importance of adhering to our strict procedures to all employees’.

    A spokesman said: ‘We are awaiting the results of independent testing of the ice that will confirm they are back up to the standards we expect.’

    ‘To reassure customers we have also inspected and cleaned the ice machines in all other restaurants across the UK.’

    Similarly, Burger King promised to emphasise standards and training procedures for employees.

    And McDonald’s said they would be ‘happy to work with relevant industry bodies on ensuring a standard for ice contamination’.

    So guys, what do you think? Not only are theses places making our population fatter with food containing “shit” load of empty calories from fat to sugars and now people have to worry about drink Poo bacteria in their iced drink! So much for that cheat meal!!

  • Killing Floor 2 just got a lot harder with this weekly challenge mode

    With last week’s ludicrous big-head mode still on our minds, the new Killing Floor 2 Weekly Outbreak is a little less lighthearted. You’ll fight an insane amount of Fleshpounds in the “Poundemonium” Outbreak, but they’re not all created equal.

    Via Tripwire: “The mode has two new zeds—a Quarter Pound which is a mini Fleshpound, which behaves differently than a regular Fleshpound. They have less health, are in much higher numbers, and move much faster than a regular Fleshpound. The other is a King Fleshpound, which is the ‘big daddy’ of all Fleshpounds. He has a new attack and is the boss for this mode. The chest beam attack is something he uses when he gets really pissed and the player is too far for his melee to hit his target. The beam attack does a lot of damage, the best way to dodge is to get behind cover or crouch, which will have the beam fly over your head.”

    Tripwire says to expect “a lot, and I mean a lot of both Quarter Pounds and regular Fleshpounds mixed with lower level supporting zeds,” with the King Fleshpound replacing KF2’s standard bosses. No problem, right?

    On top of that, Weekly Outbreaks have to be completed on ‘Suicidal’ difficulty, so good luck surviving wave after wave of KF2’s toughest zed. Complete the ‘Poundemonium’ challenge, and you’ll earn a unique cosmetic item called the Fleshpound Visor.

    This is one of several time-limited challenges running until August, as Tripwire creative director Bill Munk announced at the PC Gaming Show last month at E3.

    Here’s the rest of the schedule:

    July 18 – Up, Up and Decay – Try to make ninety-nine Zed balloons.

    Shooting Zeds in this outbreak will cause them to inflate like balloons, even to the point of floating away and popping!

    July 25 – Zed Time – All the Zed Time in the world.

    Ever think that life is passing you by? Not in this outbreak! You’ll be in Zed Time any time you’re near a Zed.

    August 1 – Beefcake – Bigger they are, harder you fall.

    In this outbreak, Zeds increase their health, size, and reach when they hit players or are affected by certain Zed abilities.

    August 8 – Boom – Zeds under pressure; may explode.

    Maybe it was something they ate? Bad gas? Whatever it was, Zeds explode when killed in this outbreak.

  • Drinking coffee reduces risk of death from all causes and increase life span? New study findings

    People who drink around three cups of coffee a day may live longer than non-coffee drinkers, a landmark study has found.

    The findings come from the largest study of its kind, in which scientists analysed data from more than half a million people across 10 European countries, including the UK, to explore the effect of coffee consumption on risk of mortality.

    Researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Imperial College London found that higher levels of coffee consumption were associated with a reduced risk of death from all causes, particularly from circulatory diseases and diseases related to the digestive tract.

    Coffee is one of the world’s most commonly consumed beverages, with an estimated 2.25 billion cups drank around the world each day. It contains a number of compounds which can interact with the body, including caffeine, diterpenes and antioxidants, and the ratios of these compounds can be affected by the variety of methods used to prepare coffee.

    Previous studies looking for a link between coffee consumption and health outcomes have revealed conflicting results, however, large studies in both the US and Japan have since revealed a potential beneficial effect of drinking coffee on risk of death from all causes.

    In the latest study, published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers have carried out the largest analysis of the effects of coffee-drinking in a European population – where coffee consumption and preparation methods vary, from an espresso in Italy, to a cappuccino in the UK – finding a similar association between consumption and mortality.

    “We found that higher coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, and specifically for circulatory diseases, and digestive diseases,” said lead author Dr Marc Gunter of the IARC and formerly at Imperial’s School of Public Health. “Importantly, these results were similar across all of the 10 European countries, with variable coffee drinking habits and customs. Our study also offers important insights into the possible mechanisms for the beneficial health effects of coffee.”

    Coffee consumption

    Using data from the EPIC study (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition), the group analysed data from 521,330 people from over the age of 35 from 10 EU countries, including the UK, France, Denmark and Italy. People’s diets were assessed using questionnaires and interviews, with the highest level of coffee consumption (by volume) reported in Denmark (900 mL per day) and lowest in Italy (approximately 92 mL per day). Those who drank more coffee were also more likely to be younger, to be smokers, drinkers, eat more meat and less fruit and veg.

    An estimated 2.25 billion cups of coffee are drank around the world each day

    After 16 years of follow up, almost 42,000 people in the study had died from a range of conditions including cancer, circulatory diseases, heart failure and stroke. Following careful statistical adjustments for lifestyle factors such as diet and smoking, the researchers found that the group with the highest consumption of coffee had a lower risk for all-causes of death, compared to those who did not drink coffee.

    They found that decaffeinated coffee had a similar effect. However, consumption of caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee is not simple to separate, as they could not exclude that decaffeinated coffee drinkers may have been consuming caffeinated coffee as well in different periods of their life.

    In a subset of 14,000 people, they also analysed metabolic biomarkers, and found that coffee drinkers may have healthier livers overall and better glucose control than non-coffee drinkers.

    “We found that drinking more coffee was associated with a more favourable liver function profile and immune response,” explained Dr Gunter. “This, along with the consistency of the results with other studies in the U.S. and Japan gives us greater confidence that coffee may have beneficial health effects.”

    According to the group, more research is needed to find out which of the compounds in coffee may be giving a protective effect or potentially benefiting health. Other avenues of research to explore could include intervention studies, looking at the effect of coffee drinking on health outcomes.

    Professor Elio Riboli, head of the School of Public Health at Imperial, who established the EPIC study, said: “These findings add to a growing body of evidence which indicates that drinking coffee not only is safe, but it may actually have a protective health effect for people. While further research is needed, we can be confident that the results from a large European study confirm previous findings seen around the world.”

    Dr Gunter added: “Due to the limitations of observational research, we are not at the stage of recommending people to drink more or less coffee. That said, our results suggest that moderate coffee drinking – up to around three cups per day – is not detrimental to your health, and that incorporating coffee into your diet could have health benefits.”

    The study was funded by the European Commission Directorate General for Health and Consumers and the IARC.

    ‘Coffee drinking and mortality in 10 European countries’ by Gunter, M.J. et al, is published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

  • Overwatch: Doomfist Origin Story Trailer and abilites

    Biography

    DOOMFIST

    BIOGRAPHY
    Real Name: Akande Ogundimu, Age: 45
    Occupation: Mercenary
    Base of Operations: Oyo, Nigeria
    Affiliation: Talon
    “Only through conflict do we evolve.”

    Recently freed from imprisonment, Doomfist is determined to plunge the world into a new conflict that he believes will make humanity stronger.
    Akande Ogundimu was born into a well-regarded Nigerian family, heir to its prosthetic-technology company. A highly intelligent and charismatic figure, Ogundimu helped to expand his family’s business and position it for the future while dedicating his free time to his first love: competitive martial arts. He trained in traditional African fighting styles, including Dambe and Gidigbo, as well as in wrestling and other modern combat systems, incorporating the most effective techniques into his repertoire. Ogundimu competed in tournaments all over the continent, utilizing his intuition and ability to read opponents alongside his tremendous speed and strength.
    But when he lost his right arm in the aftermath of the Omnic Crisis, it seemed his martial arts career was finished before he had reached his prime. His company’s cybernetic prosthetics allowed him to recover from his injuries, even making him stronger, but these enhancements rendered him ineligible for competition. He tried to devote himself to his business with the same zeal that he had for fighting, but he found nothing that could fill the void… until he was given a new opportunity by Akinjide Adeyemi, better known to the world as the second Doomfist, the Scourge of Numbani.
    Adeyemi offered Ogundimu the chance to fight with him as a mercenary. Initially wary, Ogundimu accepted, and discovered that he now had an arena in which he could unleash his enhanced capabilities. Eventually, Adeyemi brought him into the Talon organization. Talon’s belief that humanity would be made stronger through conflict resonated with Ogundimu’s personal experiences. Moreover, Talon’s power struggles presented a new challenge that allowed him to use his talent in the boardroom along with his cunning as a combatant.
    Adeyemi was a useful asset to Talon, but the organization saw far greater potential in Ogundimu, with his intelligence and his ability to inspire as a commander. While Adeyemi was content to profit from raids on Numbani, Ogundimu had a grander vision. This difference in aspiration would lead Ogundimu to kill his teacher and take on the mantle of Doomfist, along with the eponymous gauntlet.
    As the new Doomfist, Ogundimu rose high in Talon and helped to orchestrate a conflict that the organization hoped would someday engulf the world. However, before their plan came to fruition, Ogundimu was defeated and captured by an Overwatch strike team that included Tracer, Winston, and Genji. He was imprisoned in a maximum-security facility for years, where he waited patiently for events he had incited to play out.
    Finally, he sensed that the time had come for him to return. He broke out of his prison and recovered Doomfist’s gauntlet in a one-sided battle with Numbani’s newly unveiled OR15 defense robots. Now, he has retaken his place in Talon’s inner council, ready to spark a war that will consume the world once again.
