The Little Thing in Your Head That's Keeping You Fat

I have no doubt that a scientist somewhere just read the title of this article and said, “YES! Venuto is right! That little thing in your head – the hypothalamus – it IS the thing keeping you fat! By George, that Venuto has been doing his research!” At which moment, I will be shaking my head and thinking, “you need to get out of the lab and into the real world, buddy.” Neuro-endocrine control of appetite and body fat really is quite fascinating. But today, I’m talking about PSYCH-ology, not PHYSI-ology. The little thing in your head that’s keeping you fat is actually just a...

Orthorexia and The New Rules of Clean Eating, Part 2

Some experts dislike the concept of "clean foods" because it implies that other foods are “dirty” or forbidden. Some psychologists even believe that an extreme fixation on healthy food qualifies as a new eating disorder called orthorexia. However, any behavior - washing your hands, cleaning your house, or even exercise or eating health food - can become dysfunctional if it takes over your life. The question is, where do we draw the line?

Orthorexia and the New Rules of Clean Eating

Clean eating has no official definition, but it’s usually described as avoiding processed foods, chemicals, preservatives and artificial ingredients. Instead, clean eaters choose natural foods, or as close to their natural form as possible. Clean eating appears to be a desirable, sensible, even noble goal, but more and more people today are asking, “is it possible to take clean eating too far?”

The poison in our food supply that most people are STILL eating every day

Most people are eating a poison every day without giving it a second thought. This substance can increase belly fat and consuming even small amounts (2% of total energy intake) is consistently linked to coronary heart disease.

What substance could possibly be so harmful?...

Beauty and the Bleccch! (The truth about parasites, toxins and icky stuff in your colon)

A few weeks back, one of the members of the “Bodybuilding Revealed” forum directed me to this 4-alarm advertisement from “Dr. Suzanne” Gudakunst. In his query, he gave a quick rundown of “facts” he learned from her site: how icky parasites and disgusting intestinal plaque are responsible for making us sick and fat – and how the powers-that-be are not only profiting from this situation, but are deliberately adding parasites to our food to make us worse! Apparently Dr. Suzanne has received death threats for revealing this information – but, as a noble martyr to the cause of YOUR health – she’s defiantly and bravely persisting, because she cares about you and wants to become “close friends starting YESTERDAY”...

Listen to Maintainers, Not to Losers: 5 secrets to keeping the weight off for good

I have very little interest in all the media-hyped stories of dramatic, rapid losses of body weight you hear about these days “Big losers” don’t impress me, for numerous reasons. For example, weight is not fat. “Weight” could be composed of mostly lean tissue, or it could be mostly water weight. In fact, I would go a step further and point out that rapid loss of bodyweight correlates very highly with a greater chance of relapse, weight re-gain and long term failure. So what does impress me? What gets my attention? I pay attention to maintainers - the people who have held a steaady ideal weight for over a year… preferably even 2-5 years or more. Here's why... ...

How Liquid Calories May Be Making You Fat!

So far, at least 7 studies have provided strong evidence that energy containing beverages (i.e., “liquid calories”) do not properly activate the satiety mechanisms in the body and brain and do not satisfy the appetite as well as food in solid form. Epidemiological research also supports a positive association between calorie-containing beverage consumption and increased body weight or body mass index. New research now suggests that soda may not be the only culprit… ...

The truth about fish oil and fat loss

Unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, you’ve probably heard about the health benefits of eating fatty fish or taking fish oil supplements. Well, it looks like you might be able to add fat loss to that list. The biologically active ingredients that make fatty fish so beneficial are are the long chain omega-3 (n-3) fatty acids, EPA and DHA. At least a half a dozen human studies suggest that these omega-3 fatty acids found in fish may help you lose more fat. However, the fat loss benefit is not as much as some people want you to believe… ...

Alcohol: Why Some People Can Drink Without Getting Fat

Whether alcohol is "fattening" has been a very controversial subject because technically speaking, alcohol is NOT stored as fat; it is oxidized ahead of other fuels. Whether moderate drinking is healthy has also been a subject of controversy. Many studies show that cardiovascular health benefits are associated with moderate beer or wine drinking (which has been of particular interest lately with reservatrol in the news so much), while other studies show improved insulin sensitivity. Some experts however, say that alcohol has no place in a fitness lifestyle. ...
