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…

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.

5 weight loss exercises you can do in 30 minutes – most calories burned to shed fat – The Mirror

Diet will always remain the ultimate factor when it comes to weight loss, but exercise can also be an important addition. With this in mind, what are five of the best 30 minutes exercises known to help torch body fat? In order to shred body fat there are a number of factors at play. A good way to work off excess calories is to exercise regularly. How much weight you lose depends on the amount of exercise you’re willing to commit to and how closely you stick to your diet. When combined with a healthy diet plan, exercise can help slimmers achieve their dream body more quickly. If you really want to see results reflected on the scale and continue to make progress over time, you need to commit to working out at least four to five days a week.Exercises burning the most calories for 30 minutes include:Running burns through calories at a fast rate. “To begin with, slow low-intensity runs, generally over 30 minutes in duration, are likely to send your body into burning fat stores as fuel rather than carbohydrates,” says Runners World.“Running floods your body with adrenaline, stimulating the release of fat from your cells, which is…

Growing pains?: How to stop yourself getting injured while gardening – The Gua…

Bending to dig, twisting to prune and carrying heavy loads can all mean gardeners end up with unnecessary aches. Here are some expert tips to keep you healthy as your garden blooms One of the reasons gardening is such good exercise is that the sheer joy of it disguises how hard you’re working, so you end up exerting yourself more than you would at the gym. Scientific studies demonstrate this – not that I need proof. When I manage to steal a moment to prune a tangle of triffids, I have trouble stopping. Before I know it, I’ve been waving a chainsaw aloft on a pole for four hours. The only downside is that the endless yanking, pushing, lifting and bending can lead to, or exacerbate, aches and pains. NHS Digital figures for 2020-21 (AKA the great lockdown gardening and DIY boom) record 12,355 admissions to hospital in England with injuries related to “overexertion and strenuous or repetitive movements”. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Madeline Hooper, a retired PR executive who lives in the Hudson Valley north of New York, reached a point where she could no longer ignore her sore neck. “I love gardening,” she says,…

I’m a fitness expert – I used to guzzle blue WKD and kebabs, then I became a bikini model… – The Scottish Sun

A HR worker has told how she ditched her diet of blue WKD and kebabs to get her dream bikini body. Carly Taylor, 34, admits her habits were too inconsistent to maintain a healthy lifestyle and that she realised she had to make changes. She tried various diets but found them to be short-term fixes that ended up taking her even further away from her health goals. The final straw came at a Christmas party when a rude man commented “you can tell you enjoy your food” which devastated her. Carly explains: “I was utterly devastated. I wasn’t by any means overweight, however the comment coupled with my insecurity and lack of body confidence was extremely hurtful.  “It was the catalyst for me to make and sustain a change.  “I had no idea what to do or where to start so I found a personal trainer and started to go to them once a week, then I added in circuit training a few times a week and quickly I began to see changes.  “When I established the routine of exercise, I quickly went from feeling like I had to go to looking forward to exercising and trying to improve my physical performance…

Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts

Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts – The Independent

Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts.  Findings in mice shed more light on physiological processes involved in exercise and hunger. Scientists have identified a molecule in mice that they say reduces food intake and obesity, an advance that may one day provide some of the benefits of exercise in the form of a pill. In the research, scientists, including those from Baylor College of Medicine in the US, conducted comprehensive analyses of blood plasma compounds from mice following intense treadmill running. Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts in a study.  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,” Dr Xu said. The Lac-Phe molecule, scientists say, is…
