(Best Syndication News) - Researchers from Harvard Medical School have identified a third type of fat cell which is beige and has characteristics of brown fat.

Bruce Spiegelman of the Harvard Medical School explained that the new third type is found in most or all humans.

The beige fat discovery gives researchers a new avenue to investigate different ways to give these cells a boost to burn off more energy. This could lead to new ways for a person to shed excess body fat.

(Best Syndication News) - Both weight training and aerobic exercise combined was helpful for lowering A1c levels in Type 2 Diabetes patients when comparing those that do physical activities. The benefits of lowering glycemic levels wasn't as good with those that did only one type of exercise and not the other. The HART-D trial study was conducted by Timothy S. Church, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., of Louisiana State University System, Baton Rouge, Louisiana along with colleagues reported their findings in the November 24th issue of JAMA.

Most scientists will agree that exercise is important for people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. These researchers wanted to know which exercise, aerobic, resistance (weight training) or both types of exercise would be the most beneficial to a person with type 2 diabetes.

Church and his colleagues conducted the HART-D trial study which had 262 sedentary men and women diagnosed with type 2 diabetes participate either in an aerobic training, resistance weight training, or a combination of both types to see if there would be lower A1c levels. These official name is HbA1c and is a measurement that tells what a persons blood glucose levels averaged over time. The participants were 63 percent women, 47.3 percent were non-white, average age 56 years old, had a HbA1c level of 7.7 percent, had diabetes mellitus diagnosis for 7.1 years.

Energy Requirements to Maintain Body Weight

Tue, 18 Mar 2008 07:35:23 +0000

Determining adequate caloric intake to maintain body weight depends primarily on resting metabolic rate and activity level. Furthermore, energy cost also depends on the amount of lean body mass, intensity of exercise, and cardiorespiratory efficiency. Specifically, in two individuals with the same body weight, the individual with the greater proportion of lean body mass would possess a higher resting energy expenditure. Moreover, as intensity of exercise increases, energy cost does also. These factors must be considered before determining an appropriate caloric intake, training program, and macronutrient (carbohydrate, protein, and fat) ratio.

Ensuring proper nutrient intake should be reflected through optimal health and athletic performance, and maintenance of body mass and composition. An undesired gain or loss of body weight, adverse changes in body composition, or poor exercise or sports performance all indicate potentially inappropriate caloric intake.

Protein Requirements for Athletes

There still exists considerable confusion and controversy regarding the protein requirements for athletes­particularly for those who are involved in high-intensity training. Even scientists have disagreed on exact protein requirements, and thus many strength and conditioning professionals who desire muscular enhancement in their athletes have increased their protein intake well beyond the recommended daily allowance (RDA).

Much of the confusion arises from poorly designed research studies and a lack of understanding of protein metabolism, resulting in recommendations that are unnecessary and occasionally harmful. Proteins are complex molecules that have many enzymatic and structural functions related to the promotion of body growth, maintenance, and repair.

Weight Training For Looking Years Younger!

Women and weight training do not seem to go together in the same sentence purely and simply because of the images that are associated with women that weigh train. Many women believe that it involves lifting weight after weight and develop huge muscles but this is not the case. These myths need to be dispelled in order for women to see the health benefits of weight training.

Many women that do weight training do not have to actually lift weights to complete weight training exercises. It simply involves using your muscles. When you use your muscles, you burn more calories and can achieve a firmer and leaner body. This can actually result in you looking younger because the more toned you are, the better your body tends to look. Your arms, legs and stomach can become more defined and make you appear extremely fit! But how can you actually achieve this?

Body Building Requires The Right Food

Body building is a sport that, above everything, requires extreme dedication and willpower. To be the bulky athlete that you desire to be, you must consume the right kinds of body building food that will help you attain your goals. And you have to avoid junk food like a plague.

Whether you want to do a competition, or just want to grow your muscles, here's more information on what you need to eat.

Protein is the basic building block that your muscles use to grow in size. It can be found mostly in meat, dairy and nut products. This is also the most important part of body building food that you will need in order to succeed as a bodybuilder. Exercise stimulates your body into using protein to build muscle, and larger muscles burn more fat. Chicken, tuna, eggs, and lean red meat are the sources of protein that you'll be drawing on the most. While high in protein, these foods also are low in trans fats, which are not good for the cholesterol. Also be choosy when finding the right kinds of protein shakes for a morning or after work out meal. Many of the shakes out there are 90% less effective than what you'd think. Consult your trainer on what brand they recommend.

Big guns, pipes, or massive biceps, it really does not matter what you call them; the desire for big or bigger biceps probably started more young men on the bodybuilding road than anything else.

Trouble is you rarely see anyone, these days with truly impressive biceps.

Yet I don’t think that a month goes by, that somewhere in the world, in some magazine, there is not an article on how to build bigger biceps.

So what can the culprit be, it certainly should not be lack of information, and contrary to popular belief, just about everyone can increase the size of their biceps if they work at it correctly.

Weightlifters build more muscle mass drinking Milk compared to Soy Drinks

[Best Syndication] Milk protein showed to be more beneficial for building muscle mass in weightlifters than drinking a soy drink according to a new study. Researchers from McMaster University’s Department of Kinesiology reported their findings first in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The study researched how much muscle protein young men would gain after a heavy weightlifting workout. They had given equal amounts of protein after their workout. Either they would receive milk or a soy drink.

"Our thinking going into the study was that milk would be better than soy. We suspected this would be the case because of work done by French researchers. However, we were really impressed by how much greater the gains in muscle protein with milk were," said Sarah Wilkinson, lead researcher and a graduate student in the department of kinesiology.
