So what if there was a way to move it from a necessity filled with equipment and time to something popped in the mouth? What if a person could theoretically consume exercise? A new study from Stanford University has brought the world one step closer to that reality. Publishing their results in the journal Nature, researchers from the United States have discovered the molecule behind exercise’s link to hunger.Their original intentions were to find out why exercise makes someone hungry.During the course of their investigation, they discovered the molecule, known as Lac-Phe, is produced during exercise.It is this molecule that contributes to reducing obesity and food intake.

'I was too shy to let anyone see me exercise – now I help others like me lose weight' – The Telegraph

From Midlife Fitness Files: The Telegraph’s health series, where we glean advice from midlifers as they talk us through their weekly regime Rachael Sacerdoti, 43, is a CEO and lives in LondonI had always struggled with weight. As a child, I was always the “bigger” one, but after my third child, I was just shy of 90 kilos (over 14 stone). I struggled to lift myself off the sofa, my back hurt and I had anxiety and depression. I wanted to change, but I didn’t know how.On holiday with my brother in September 2017, he noticed me eating three ice lollies in an hour and asked me what was up. He told me that I didn’t have to make a huge change all at once, I just needed to start walking a bit more. I realised he was totally right; I had to take responsibility.It was quite hard even to walk around the block, but after a few weeks, I progressed to walking to the park. Then I added in a few home workouts – doing them in my bedroom because I was too shy of even my family seeing me work out. After a couple of months, I joined…

An easy way to help prevent damaged joints

How to live longer: An easy way to help prevent damaged joints, and it’s not exercise – Express

And with more desk-based workers operating from home now, it can be easy to sit in positions that might not be the best for our bodies. An expert has advised that good posture could in fact increase your lifespan. Speaking to Express.co.uk, Julie Jennings – an occupational therapist for furniture company HSL – said: “It’s not just your diet that can impact your longevity, poor posture can also have a huge part to play in your life span. “As a nation, weight issues are becoming more common and as we get older, we tend to put on more weight through natural body and lifestyle changes; coupled with reduced activity this can result in long term health complications.” She explained: “Weight gain changes how our skeleton and muscles support themselves, which in turn affects our centre of gravity. “Poor posture will put extra strain and demand on your joints and muscles, leading to fatigue; coupled with poor circulation, where the body does not get enough oxygen, muscles and joints are more easily damaged and less likely to repair.” According to the NHS, common posture pitfalls include slouching in your chair, standing with a flat back and a hunched back – or “text…

The study, published in the journal Nature last week, found that a modified amino acid called Lac-Phe was the most significantly induced molecule in mice following the exercise.“Regular exercise has been proven to help weight loss, regulate appetite and improve the metabolic profile, especially for people who are overweight and obese,” Yong Xu, study co-author and professor of pediatrics- nutrition and molecular and cellular biology at Baylor, said in a statement. “If we can understand the mechanism by which exercise triggers these benefits, then we are closer to helping many people improve their health,”…
