The brain-changing benefits of exercise

What’s the most transformative thing that you can do for your brain today? Exercise! says neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki. Get inspired to go to the gym as Suzuki discusses the science of how working out boosts your mood and memory — and protects your brain against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Consumption of Whole Eggs Promotes Greater Stimulation of Postexercise Muscle

Protein in the diet is commonly ingested from whole foods that contain various macro- and micronutrients. However, the effect of consuming protein within its natural whole-food matrix on postprandial protein metabolism remains understudied in humans. OWe aimed to compare the whole-body and muscle protein metabolic responses after the consumption of whole eggs with egg whites […]

Circadian Hormonal Inputs to Regulate Fat Cell Differentiation

Circadian adipogenic stimuli are rejected by the adipocyte differentiation system This circadian filtering requires fast and slow positive feedback to PPARG Loss of circadian glucocorticoid oscillations in mice increases fat mass Glucocorticoid and other adipogenic hormones are secreted in mammals in circadian oscillations. Loss of this circadian oscillation pattern correlates with obesity in humans, raising […]

Timing of food intake is more potent than habitual voluntary exercise to prevent diet-induced obesity in mice

Inappropriate eating habits such as eating late at night are associated with risk for abnormal weight-gain and adiposity. We previously reported that time-imposed feeding during the daytime (inactive phase) induces obesity and metabolic disorders accompanied by physical inactivity in mice. The present study compares metabolic changes induced in mice by time-imposed feeding under voluntary wheel-running […]

Genetic Susceptibility for Childhood BMI has no Impact on Weight Loss Following Lifestyle Intervention

This study aimed to investigate the effect of a genetic risk score (GRS) comprising 15 single‐nucleotide polymorphisms, previously shown to associate with childhood BMI, on the baseline cardiometabolic traits and the response to a lifestyle intervention in Danish children and adolescents. Methods Children and adolescents with overweight or obesity (n = 920) and a population‐based control sample […]

Sitting Is The New Smoking

An alien visitor to our planet would be perplexed by modern human life, not least our relationship with physical exertion. After 6 million years of hunter-gatherer existence, humans can be observed sheltering in warm rooms, counteracting the tiresome effects of earth’s gravity by slouching on comfortable seats in front of glowing screens, being whisked effortlessly […]
