🏃‍♀️ The Warm-Up

Recent Health & Fitness Research

Weight loss puts T2 diabetes in remission, but there’s a catch. Based on a study of of 35,000 people, weight loss can cure type 2 diabetes. The problem is, only a tiny percentage of people keep weight off after they lose it. But that’s more a factor of how they lose and try to keep weight off than it is an issue of their genetics or body type. Here’s the deal: A high-protein diet, based on research and my experience with clients, consistently helps people lose excess weight, and it keeps the weight off after they lose it, without needing to count calories or feel like they’re on a restricted diet. If you want to accelerate your results, add the GBX Burn and Fit supplements to your plan, too. The bottom line is that if you want to be diabetes-free, you have to keep your body fat in check.

What’s the best diet for cognitive function? I’m sure your mind goes straight to vegetables or maybe a vegetarian diet when you think about the answer to that question. That’s not an accurate picture of the best diet for cognitive function. As Dr. Doug Kalman explains in this article, higher protein intake is a must, but in addition to eating a high-protein diet, you also want a variety of plant and vegetables, and some high-quality carbs. As he points out in the article, people can lose weight with both a low-fat and a low-carb diet, but those who stick with low-carb don’t turn out so good when it comes to mental health. The following comes straight from the article:

“While there’s no such thing as an essential carbohydrate and you won’t die without them, you’ll be moody,” Kalman said. In a study on 106 people with obesity who were prescribed either a low-fat or low-carbohydrate diet for weight loss, the reductions in weight were comparable between the two groups, “but those people on the low-carb diet were miserable—their mood states were negative, and they had a negative affect.”

Caffeine causes dehydration, right? Wrong! This is one of those nutrition myths that gets repeated so often people think it’s a fact. It’s not. A new study showed that ingestion of a whopping 400 mg of caffeine didn’t even affect hydration levels. If someone feel dehydrated after they’ve consumed a caffeinated beverage, the issue is that they didn’t drink enough fluids, not that they consumed caffeine.

Eat eggs. Lots of them. Your brain will appreciate it. A recent study has shown some interesting findings about eggs and brain health. For men, eating more eggs was linked to slightly better memory, especially in long-term recall. This benefit was seen regardless of factors like age, smoking, or heart health. Women didn't show the same link, but the study suggests this could be because they generally ate fewer eggs. Eggs have nutrients like choline and carotenoids, which are crucial for our brain function and memory. This study adds to the growing evidence that eggs aren't just good for our muscles but could also keep our minds sharp as we age!

Two Americas: One for U.S. citizens is heavily regulated and monitored, the other for illegals is free of mandates, regulations and bureaucratic harassment (Leo’s Newsletter). Joe Biden’s Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, is working with Customs and Border Protection to allow illegal aliens to fly without proper identification. This is in contrast to the treatment of U.S. citizens, who are required to show identification at airports before they are allowed to board a flight. The New York Post reported that while U.S. citizens are required to show a passport or a valid form of identification to travel by plane both domestically and internationally, signs at various airports claim that the TSA and CBP are collaborating to enable illegal immigrants to travel without any ID.
