Dear Living Fuel Family,

You may remember from high school or perhaps from the television game show Jeopardy! that the liver is the largest internal organ in the human body.  However, body fat, also called adipose tissue, can be the largest organ in the growing numbers of those classified as overweight or obese.  Once thought to lie dormant and inactive, fat, particularly abdominal fat, is actually alive, energetic, and causing havoc and dis-ease.  What can we do about it?

Today on LivingFuelTV, join Monica and me as we discuss this topic.  We’ll explore excerpts from my most recent book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!  You’ll learn the hidden dangers of body fat that will challenge conventional wisdom and inspire you!

LivingFuel HealthAlert: Diet Soda Deceit

The Calorie Control Council recently released a new study with a remarkable finding – diet soda is a health food!

The study, which consisted of weight loss in extremely obese people, found that those people in the study that drank either water or diet soda lost 4 to 5 pounds on average, while the control group that received only dietary counseling (in other words, did nothing) did not lose as much weight.

So it’s final – diet soda is good for you!

Wait, not so fast.

I have addressed this topic in various ways throughout this book. Some researchers have found an association between snacking between meals and obesity. By contrast, other researchers found that increasing meal frequency was associated with lower body weight in men, but not in women. Other researchers have also suggested that larger, less frequent meals increase the risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. As noted before, there’s really no consensus on the research.

While proponents of frequent snacking have some positives to point to, the truth is, the more times a day you sit down to eat a meal or grab a quick snack, the more times the door swings open to overeating. And the human reality is that, when given the opportunity, most of us choose to overeat. I’ve seen it occur hundreds of times to those who increase the number of times they eat every day. Most of us find it almost impossible to eat a small amount at a meal or snack, and it’s almost a given that our snacks will load on the calories.

LivingFuel SuperHealth: Improve Your Health While You Sleep!

To have the health of your dreams, you need to spend more time dreaming. Research shows that one of the best ways to improve your health tomorrow is to get a good night’s sleep tonight – at least 7 – 8.5 hours. That may sound simple enough, but the fact is that Americans have racked up a huge “sleep debt” through the years. On average, people living in the United States get at least one hour less sleep per night than they did 20 years ago. After several days, weeks or months of sleep debt, we have trouble concentrating and making important decisions about everything from our job to homework and paying bills.

LivingFuel HealthAlert: Obesity Ups Cancer Risk, And Here’s How

Obesity comes with plenty of health risks, but there’s one that’s perhaps not so well known: an increased risk of developing cancer, and especially certain types of cancer like liver cancer. Now, a group of researchers reporting in a recent issue of the journal Cell, a Cell Press publication, have confirmed in mice that obesity does indeed act as a “bona fide tumor promoter.” They also have good evidence to explain how that happens.

Munich (dpa) – Obese people lose weight at high altitudes and keep it off for at least four weeks, according to a team of German scientists.

Independent of any other change in lifestyle, high altitudes appear to increase metabolism, decrease appetite and lower diastolic blood pressure, the researchers report in the journal Obesity.

Understanding the mechanisms behind this weight loss could provide a basis for new treatments for obesity, they say.

LivingFuel HealthAlert: Protective Effect of Physical Activity in Heart Failure Risk

Scientists found that being overweight was independently associated with an increased risk for heart failure. Abdominal waist circumference or waist-to-hip ratio was associated with the greatest risk for heart failure among both men and women. Moderate or high levels of physical activity were associated with a reduced risk of heart failure. The protective effect of physical activity on heart failure was consistent in subjects at all levels of body mass index.

CoQ10 may protect against obesity problems. A new study shows supplements of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) may protect or retard the development of fatty liver related to obesity. Mice fed a high fat and fructose diet and supplemented with CoQ10 had decreased levels of inflammatory and metabolic stress markers in their livers than mice just fed the high-fat diet, according to findings published in Biochemical Pharmacology.
