My husband and I were fed up with a few of our trouble areas that just wouldnt seem to melt away like the other areas of concern when we would be working out and dieting. For me those areas are my upper arm fat and my saddle bags, which Ive always struggled with pretty much since I hit puberty and got a womans figure.
I even noticed a little bit of a waddle creeping up on me, which is that fat that gathers underneath your chin, so I wanted a way that we could potentially get rid of fat in targeted trouble areas in our own home. After a lot of reading, I decided to buy us a home fat cavitation device.
What is Fat Cavitation?
Fat cavitation is the use of ultrasound technology to liquify and break up fat cells so that they dump the contents of the fat cell out. They dont get rid of the fat cell, but they essentially shrink it by use of these ultrasonic waves which help break them up and turn them into an irregular shape. Its essentially the same thing that happens when you lose weight your fat cells dont go away, theyre still there, but you shrink them down.
We got our device for under $400 and Im pretty happy with it. I
Of all of the drug related causes of obesity out there perhaps none is more powerful than the gain associated with anti-psychotics In adults gains of literally dozens of pounds are regularly seen A recent story by Postmedia’s Sharon Kirkey on a new study out of BC to be published in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry reports that in Canada, despite a total lack of evidence suggesting their safety in children and moreover an almost total lack of studies involving children at all, since just 1996 second generation child anti-psychotic use has quadrupled While there’s no singular cause for obesity, for children prescribed these meds obesity may come close to an inevitability If your young child is currently on anti-psychotic meds, especially if they’re on them for sleep, please consider making an appointment with your prescriber to discuss if there aren’t in fact alternatives available
The findings which appear in the February 2013 issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine used a laboratory animal model of NAFLD to demonstrate that isocaloric substitution of a mixture of MCT rich saturated fats for of dietary polyunsaturated fats prevented liver fat accumulation. In addition progression of injury was blocked as a result of reduced susceptibility of lipids to radical attack and increased basal metabolic rate produced by activation of PPAR signaling.
“There is a real shortage of potential therapies for NAFLD short of weight loss and increased exercise” states Dr. Ronis. “In this study, we show that even if total dietary fat content remains high and excess calories continue to be consumed, the metabolic effects of MCT to change liver lipid profiles and increase respiration can prevent the development of liver pathology.” Although complete substitution of MCT oil for vegetable oils in cooking is not feasible as a result of its low smoking point, the studies demonstrated that the protective effects of MCT were dose-dependent.
Did you know the average person spends more time per day sitting than they do sleeping? That a slew of recent studies show a strong correlation between sitting and weight gain, sitting and overall mortality, sitting and heart disease, and sitting and loss of bone density?
As a writer, my work keeps me sitting in front a computer for hours a day. I sit while I research and write blog posts. I sit while I write books. I sit while I teach online courses and provide customer support. I sit while I promote my work on Facebook. And then, when Im all done working for the day, I sit while I watch TV and movies, sit while I surf the net, and sit while I read books.
Sitting too much will kill you.
There, I said it.
Despite my sedentary work and leisure, I still thought of myself as mildly active. After all, I home school three young kids. I take them to play dates at the park. We go on walks to the library or park or river.
A new clinical trial begins this week to see if an engineered virus can be used to heal damaged and struggling hearts. The Imperial College, London trial involves some 200 participants, where the virus will be injected into the heart to evaluate its effectiveness in strengthening the heart after someone experiences a heart attack.
Diets high in omega-3 fatty acids are linked to better memory and cognitive function, according to new research from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The study found that a diet with plenty of fish, chicken and salad dressing – all high in omega-3s – can be important for thinking abilities.
