When trying to lose weight, the specific diet plan you’re on might not matter much. What experts say gets you pound-shedding results is an equation called CICO or “calories in, calories out.” For weight loss to work, you have to restrict calories in some way, so it doesn’t quite make a difference if you’re eating keto, Whole30, Paleo, or gluten-free, so long as you’re making sure you take in less calories than you’re burning.

HealthLine / Dr. Youdim Drinking More? Blame Your Wine Glass January 8, 2018

glass-1502835_960_720Researchers say the increase in the size of wine glasses may be partly to blame for the increase in drinking. There’s also marketing and affordability, too.

The standard pour for a glass of wine is five ounces, or 150 milliliters.

That’s the number the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) uses. It’s also typically the one bars and restaurants use when they serve you a glass of vino with dinner. But when you’re home and left to your own devices, the pours may tip a bit taller than any official standard. And that may be because the wine glass you’re using just keeps getting bigger.

Live In The Now / Dr. Youdim Ingredient in Cinnamon Found to Promote Fat Burning December 7, 2017

Cinnamonum verumA study from the University of Michigan (UM) Life Sciences Institute (LSI) has found an essential oil in cinnamon stimulates fat burning. The discovery means the compound might be used in the future as a weight-loss treatment.

Earlier research has shown that the compound called cinnamaldehyde, which is the essential oil that imparts the distinctive flavor in the spice, can protect mice from obesity and high blood sugar levels. Because the mechanisms by which the compound works are poorly understood, researchers in the LSI lab undertook the investigation to learn more about its properties.

Frustrated with your weight loss progress (or lack thereof)? Your brain may be to blame. Shedding pounds and keeping them off has less to do with the food you eat and more to do with what’s going on in your mind, says Eliza Kingsford, author of Brain-Powered Weight Loss. “It starts with learning who you are in relation to your actions,” says the psychotherapist who specializes in weight management. “What are your triggers? How do you manage cravings? How do you handle situations after you’ve gone off track? What are the messages that you tell yourself?” (more…)

You might get sick less often

While it’s no replacement for a healthy diet loaded with all of the illness-fighting vitamins and nutrients you need, research has found that wine possesses immune system-boosting benefits. “The antioxidants in wine increases heart-healthy HDL cholesterol as well as keeping the immune system strong,” says Kristine Arthur, MD, internist at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. “HDL helps to prevent “bad” plaque build-up in the arteries, which can also help prevent heart attacks and strokes.” If you’re over age 21, these are the wine terms you need to memorize.
