New weight control strategy urges ‘maintain, don’t gain’ approach

You only need to reduce 100 to 200 calories a day to prevent weight gain, whereas if you want to lose, you have to reduce by 500 calories a day. Each week, women received an automated phone call asking them to rate their progress. Based on that feedback, they would then receive counseling from registered dieticians. After a year in the program, 62 percent of women in the weight maintenance program were at or below their weight at the start of the program, compared to 45 percent of the women in the normal care group. Furthermore, after 18 months, women in the maintenance program continued to maintain their weight while women in the normal care group continued to gain weight. While researchers didnt notice any immediate indicators of improved health, they suspect health benefits for the weight maintenance group will become more apparent over time. I think well see these women will maintain weight for quite a long time, and if we can prevent (weight gain) for long enough we will see changes in cardio metabolic primers, Bennett said.

Focusing on weight loss may not be effective

Primary care doctors just dont have the time or resources to adequately address the myriad of factors involved in moving an individual towards successful weight loss or maintenance. Brown-Riggs, who is also author of The African American Guide To Living Well With Diabetes and Eating Soulfully and Healthfully with Diabetes , adds: The cookie cutter approach will not help individuals work through barrierssuch aspurchasing and preparinghealthier foods or incorporating physical activity into their day. Bennett says that his team plans to reexamine the weight gain or loss at the 18-month mark and consider these interventions as a first-line treatment intervention. Were also going to look at this in men. Black men have a similar pattern of lower health risks with obesity. But, once men enter their mid to late 30s, they gain a lot of weight. Were going to look at this strategy, he says. Dr. Tyeese Gaines is a physician-journalist with over 10 years of print and broadcast experience, now serving as health editor for MSNBCs theGrio.com .

Dan Uggla’s vision at 20/15 after LASIK eye surgery

More Braves coverage: Talking Chop Uggla underwent the procedure after long struggles through the 2013 season and an astigmatism in his eye putting his vision around 20/30 or 20/35. Uggla’s current visual acuity of 20/15 means that he can see as well from 20 feet as a person with normal 20/20 vision would from 15 feet. Though Uggla wanted to hit off a tee Saturday afternoon, the Braves did not allow him to in fear that he may get dust particles or dirt in his eyes. Instead, Uggla will begin hitting again when Atlanta travels to play the Mets on Tuesday. Uggla, who says his vision is still blurry at times, is hopeful he can return from the disabled list not long after being first eligible on Aug. 28. He will take a brief minor league rehab appearance before his return to test out his vision in a game situation.

Fitness tonic for Arsenal

Famous Fitness Instructor Hired at Apple, Likely for iWatch Development

There had been fears over the fitness of those individuals, especially full-back Sagna who landed awkwardly towards the end of the game on Saturday, but they could all play some part in Turkey as Arsenal look to seal a place in the lucrative group stages of the Champions League. England’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a certainty to miss out after suffering a serious knee injury in the defeat to Villa, with some reports suggesting the 20-year-old could be ruled out for up to six months. Qualification to Europe’s elite club competition is seen as a must for a club like Arsenal, and having as strong a squad as possible for the match at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium on Wednesday night gives Arsene Wenger’s side the best chance of getting a positive result ahead of the second leg at the Emirates next Tuesday. If Arsenal do reach the group stages there will be even more calls for new faces in north London, after a bid for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye was rejected on Monday.

Planet Fitness joins at Magna’s Sheraton in Tribeca

Having helped out with the development of Nikes popular fitness products, such as the Nike+ Kinect Training and Nike+ FuelBand, Blahnik indirectly confirmed in a series of tweets that he had taken up a job at Apple. Moreover, the renowned fitness instructor and consultant has since deleted details about his career from his public website, in what seems to suggest hes taken up an important project at Apple. Which bodes pretty well with rumors about the Cupertino giant developing a sensor-packed iWatch that puts a miniaturized computer on your wrist. The bad news is Apples iWatch probably wont be released until next year, as there havent been any solid leaks to suggest an unveiling by the end of 2013. The good news is that with a guy like Jay Blahnik aboard, Apple will probably make the best wearable gadget ever. FILED UNDER:

However, its doors will not open until next summer, Kenji Ota of NGKF, who represented Magna, told The Real Deal. Asking rent for the space was $35 per square foot. The 21-story, 360-room building will position Planet Fitness just east of the lobby, with direct street access to the ground-floor entrance. The owner intends for the gym to serve as a hotel amenity, but the brokers said they did not know whether guests will have free access. We could not divide the space because it only had one street level entrance.

Back in July, there was a rumor that Apple had was assembling a team of hardware and software engineering, medical sensor, manufacturing, and fitness experts to work on its as-yet-unconfirmed iWatch. This, coupled with Tim Cook’s praise for Nike’s execution of the FuelBand (which he has been spotted wearing, by the way), lent weight to the theory that Apple’s iWatch would offer fitness and exercise monitoring capabilities. Keeping that fire burning is confirmation from Jay Blahnik that he’s now working at Apple. The fitness instructor and consultant has been working with Nike for almost two decades and played a key role in the development of the Nike+ FuelBand, Nike+ Kinect Training as well as the Nike Training Club application. 9to5Mac reports that Blahnik confirmed his new position at Apple via Twitter.
