Why Skipping Breakfast Makes You Fat

Scientists have done some serious research on how the brain reacts when we skip breakfast and why fat accumulates in the body exactly when we try to lose weight.

If you are trying to lose weight you will probably find it easier to skip the first meal of the day. Being the first meal, the stomach isn’t asking for food yet, so you can trick your brain into skipping it more easily. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. The trick is on you and more specifically on your body.  Not having breakfast makes your brain believe that, in fact, your need is to eat foods with more calorie intake.
A team of researchers at Imperia College London, United Kingdom, has started studying the way that our eating behavior influences the reward zone situated in the brain. For this, being a preliminary study, they gathered a group of 20 volunteers. The volunteers were healthy people at a normal weight. The experiment lasted just two day.

The first day, the volunteers were asked to skip breakfast the day of the experiment. The testing consisted in viewing some photos of a series of foods, some fattening, like pizza, French fries, cakes and chocolate, some healthy, like salads, fish and vegetables. During the exercise, the researchers analyzed they way their brain responded to the photos. The reward zone was highly active.

The second day, they were asked to do the same thing, except this time they were asked to have breakfast before the exercise. Their reward zone was analyzed this day, too, and it was noticed that the reward zone wasn’t as active as the day before.

Prof. Tony Goldstone, the endocrinologist who led the research, said that their results sustain the advice nutritionists give in regard with breakfast habits. When people skip meals, and especially breakfast, their brain changes the way it responses to food and sabotages the weight loss. More than that, it creates a good path for weight gain.

Scientists say that not only photos can trigger the reward zone in the brain, but also smells. The reward zone in the brain is a neural area that gets triggered when we feel frustrated for not satisfying other needs. At this point we, more or less conscientious, feel the need to compensate/ reward ourselves. This being said, if you have skipped breakfast and, on your way to work, pass by a pastry shop, chances are you are going to buy and eat more calories than you would have eaten on breakfast at home.

Mary Tyler Moore Undergoes Tumor Removal Surgery

The actress Mary Tyler Moore is having a difficult time these days as she needs to undergo a medical procedure of removing a tumor located near the brain. Moore’s representative, Alla Plotkin, told People magazine of the surgery, but did not say when is it going to take place.

Mary Tyler Moore is now 74 years old and has been diagnosed with meningioma, a slow growing tumor in the meninges, a membrane that covers and protects the brain and the spinal cord. Meningiomas can occur in older people, but they are usually benign.

Plotkin said in the statement that the actress “went in for an elective surgery to remove a meningioma” and added that the tumor is benign and it is not, as many believe, a “brain tumor” as it is not located in the brain, but in the membrane that covers the brain. Plotkin stated that Moore made the choice at the recommendation of her neurologist. He has been monitoring her in the past few years. In addition, she was consulted by a neurosurgeon, who advised her to consider surgery as it is the best choice.

Moore debuted in show business in 1958, where she played a mysterious receptionist in the TV series Richard Diamond, Private Detective. She became famous for the housewife role in the ‘60s comedy series, “The Dick Van Dyke Show”. Then she gained more audience with her own show, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, which ran in the ‘70s. She also played in a number of movies, including “Ordinary People” in 1980, Six Weeks in 1982, Just Between friends in 1986, Flirting With Disaster and Blue Arrow in 1996, Keys To Tulsa in 1997 and Cheats in 2002.

Mary Tyler Moore’s personal life is a full agitated one. She got married for the first time when she was only 18 and an 19 years old she became mother for her only child, Richard Jr. She filed for a divorce in 1961 and one year later she married an NBC producer. Together they started MTM Enterprises which produced her show “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”. In 1980, her son accidentally shot himself in the head and died. In 1983 she married Dr. Robert Levine which remained by her side up to this moment. She was involved in charity work, as well.

Royal couple off on their honeymoon

On Tuesday, the Palace confirmed to People magazine that the Duke AND Duchess of Cambridge have left on their honeymoon. However, they wouldn’t give details regarding the destination as the two newly weds want to have their privacy. But that hasn’t stopped the British tabloids to make assumptions…

After their wedding on one of the last days of April, Kate and William delayed their honeymoon for a week. William has gone back to work the following Monday and Kate has spent her time shopping and keeping a low profile, stating that she will be a normal housewife, at least for now.

According to People .com, William has 2 weeks off from his duties with his RAF Search and Rescue squadron and has taken his wife to some exotic place. The British tabloids speculate that they might have gone to spend their honeymoon to the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean. Royal tradition says that the destination has to be kept a secret from the bride. In reality, there is no confirmed news regarding the exact location of the royal couple. The Palace spokesman stated that the couple had asked for their privacy during their 2 week romantic getaway.

The wedding of the century has taken place at Westminster Abbey on April 29 2011. Prince William, 28, married Kate Middleton, 29. The wedding made the headlines of all press publications for days in a row. Every little aspect of the wedding was mediatised, from the bride dress, to the brides’ maids, to Prince Harry’s date, to Princess Diana’s commemoration and a lot more. The wedding dress (and the designers of it) was news by itself. It was said that it looked incredibly similar to the one Grace Kelly worn at her wedding. The engagement ring that Kate received was Diana’s engagement ring from Prince Charles. In regard with the wedding ceremony, thousands and thousands of people spent the night before the ceremony outside the Abbey in otder to get a good spot where they can see the royal couple’s first public kiss from. Tradition says the couple cannot share the first kiss as husband and wife inside the Abbey, so the two made it public, just outside the Abbey.

Before the honeymoon and just after the wedding, Will and Kate had the weekend for themselves, before he got back to work. The destination of their weekend was again held from the press for means of privacy.

How Do Male Celebrities Stay in Shape – Kellan Lutz and Jason Statham

Find out how some of the most attractive male celebrities maintain their abs.

When it comes to looks Hollywood is like another planet. There, everyone has perfect abs, perfect hair, perfect outfits, everyone is a vegan and composts trash, their shoes are always shiny and their smile is sparkling white.

Some times we think it’s not fair and nature was way too good to them. But in reality, all the people that have a tone perfect looking body work for its maintenance daily. Sometimes it’s harder, other times it’s easier, depending on your goal and your determination.

What you should keep in mind is that those perfect abs you see on TV are the work of many hours in the gym an diet. They didn’t come out of nowhere on a celebrity’s fat belly and just called it home.
Another thing you should remember as well is that not only Hollywood is perfect looking, but any other celebrity place and even you can look like that. To get you started, some of the icons of hotness have shared with you some of their tricks and tips.

Kellan Lutz – the power of the abs
He was best known for his role in Twilight, where he played Emmet Cullen, Edward’s brother. Now, he is best known for his Apollo figure and guess what: until his eight grade graduation he didn’t even know of the power of his abs. In an interview for Men’s  Health magazine he admits: “Before then, I never knew abs were attractive.But when I took off my shirt, all the girls were, like, ‘Oh, look at your abs!’ And I was, like, ‘Yeah!” Lutz explains that although he was always in love with sports, he had to struggle to maintain his physique.

Now, to stay in shape, he begins every workout with 5 minutes of cardio exercises and then he does core work. After exercises that involve of the muscle groups he starts exercising separate groups of muscles. Then he returns to full-body movement.

Jason Statham – the commando body
His face and his acting inspire self awareness and a great individual inner strength. I wonder why I wrote “inner”, because it is out in the open: Statham has the perfect commando look.

Before he was an actor he was a professional sportsman, so in the matters of fitness he know what he is talking about. He claims that the first ingredient to a perfect body is a motivated mind. If you have that, you will get the results you hoped for. When he wanted to loose weight he worked out 6 days a week for 35 minutes. His training involved a lot of cardio. Plus, he stayed on a strict diet, eating just enough to keep him fed, but not full. He dropped 17 pounds in one and a half months.

I guess the path to a perfect body smells like a lot of sweat!

Royal Couple Postponed Honeymoon

The wedding of the century is not followed by the expected honeymoon. Prince William and his wife, duchess Catherine, will not be heading on their exotic destination honeymoon just yet, according to US Magazine.
The Palace issued a statement which said that William, 28, and Catherine, 29, will have spent a quiet and well deserved weekend together and are back to work on Sunday.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen not to depart for a honeymoon immediately. Instead, after spending the weekend privately in the United Kingdom, The Duke will return to work as a Search and Rescue pilot next week.” said a press release that as posted on the royal wedding site.
The newly weds wanted to keep the location of their first weekend together as a couple a secret. They didn’t give any details about their honeymoon location, either. The only thing the press knows is that it will be overseas. “The locations of both their private weekend before The Duke returns to work and their future honeymoon, which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance.

The Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon” adds the palace statement.
Speculations are that the honeymoon destination will be a luxurious island where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will send a lot of time in the sun, exposing their beautiful attractive figures in some sexy swimsuits. Kate Middleton already showed off her silhouette in a bikini during a vacation in Ibiza with William, in the summer of 2006.

Kate and William became husband and wife on April 30th. The royal wedding ceremony took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Both weds were hailed for their impeccable taste and common sense. Kate’s dress was very much discussed and praised. It was even compared to another royalty’s good taste wedding dress: Grace Kelly.
Hundreds of thousands of civilians from all over the world (even some from overseas) spent the night before the wedding in front of the Cathedral in order to get a good spot from which they can see the future of the British monarchy.

Since Queen Elizabeth II wed, no future weddings lasted. They all ended up in a divorce, including Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s. Every British citizen hopes that this wedding will break the chain of unfortunate marriages. And as they say, the honeymoon dictates the future of the marriage. Let’s hope that wherever they will be, they will take advantage of their privacy.

 

 

Kate Middleton and Mother Are Wardrobe Twins

Is Kate Middleton’s mother afraid she’s getting old? Or she just wants to draw attention to her legs? Judging by the way she dresses, you would say she wants to be considered Kate’s older sister. On different occasions the paparazzi caught her and her daughter, Kate wearing similar outfits, whether it was a jeans, ensembles, shoes, or hats. If you browse the internet, you will surely find more photos that sustain what I’m saying. Let’s take some examples:

The Kat in the Hat

Both Kate and mom Carol have the same type of white haute couture hat with blue rose. They both wore it with blue elegant jackets, event though Kate’s had a more complex model.

The Russian Furry Hat

The cold weather inspired both women to get the same type of fuzzy brown fur hat. Still, Carol seems to be more resistant to cold, as she didn’t feel the need to accessorize too much. On the contrary, Kate added a scarf around her neck.

The Cowgirls

What could be nicer than a nice day out with your mother? Well, it depends on what you call nice. At the Festival of British Eventing in 2005, Kate and her mother looked like real wardrobe twins. Shouldn’t that concern any of them? They had an identical pair of jeans, very similar boots (in length, color, heel height), almost identical belts, and the upper part of the outfit, even though a bit different, has the same style. The only notable difference is the act that Kate wears a cowboy hat and mom doesn’t.

The City March

One day, the paparazzi caught Carol and Kate’s sister, Pippa, making shopping trip on the streets of London. They were both wearing the same navy inspired jackets, nearly identical boots and short wavy skirts.

Now, it’s clear that mother Carol, who is 56, doesn’t want to loose her youth to her daughters and all in all, this is not a bad thing. A woman should try to look her best at any age. And sometimes this means cosmetic care, sometimes it means plastic surgery, sometimes it means wearing clothes that make you look young. So, I guess it’s not necessarily the clothes she wears that attracts criticism, but the fact that she doesn’t seem to differ in style from her daughters. The question that arises is who is copying who?
