Change eating schedule to lose your weight

first_imgSimply changing your eating schedule like taking the last meal of the day by the mid-afternoon can help burn fat and lose weight, suggests new research.The study that tested early time-restricted feeding (eTRF) on humans found that this meal-timing strategy reduced swings in hunger and altered fat and carbohydrate burning patterns, which may help with losing weight.With eTRF, people eat their last meal by the mid-afternoon and do not eat again until breakfast the next morning. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf“Eating only during a much smaller window of time than people are typically used to may help with weight loss,” said one of the researchers Courtney Peterson, Associate Professor at University of Alabama at Birmingham in the US.The human body has an internal clock, and many aspects of metabolism are at their optimal functioning in the morning.Therefore, eating in alignment with the body’s circadian clock by eating earlier in the day may positively influence health. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsivePrevious animal studies showed that early time-restricted feeding helped rodents burn more fat.During the current study, Peterson and her colleagues followed a small group of men and women with excess weight over four days of eating between 8 am and 2 pm, and four days of eating between 8 am and 8 pm.Researchers then tested the impact of the meal timing strategy on calories burned, fat burned and appetite.Participants tried both eating schedules, ate the same number of calories both times and completed all testing under supervision. Researchers found that, although eTRF did not affect how many total calories participants burned, it reduced daily hunger swings and increased fat burning during several hours at night.It also improved metabolic flexibility, which is the body’s ability to switch between burning carbohydrates and burning fats.Whether early time-restricted feeding helps with long-term weight loss or improves other aspects of health is still unknown.last_img read more

Baker Mayfield Rips Texas and Sam Ehlinger In Oklahoma Radio Interview

first_img Advertisement Baker Mayfield recently got it in hot water in the Cleveland locker room for publicly commenting on Duke Johnson’s contract situation, but his slap on the wrist hasn’t stopped him from letting opinions fly when the mic is on.Mayfield recently hopped on for an interview with Sports Talk 1400 in Norman and used the opportunity to talk some trash about Sooner rival Texas and Longhorn QB Sam Ehlinger. Mayfield made it clear that he doesn’t think Texas is “back,” and added that Ehlinger is a distant third among quarterbacks to come out of Dallas’ renowned Westlake High School quarterback factory – behind Drew Brees and Nick Foles – and that he doesn’t like the guy.It’s mostly harmless college rivalry smack talk, but it does kind of feel like punching down coming from an NFL QB..@bakermayfield made it clear that Texas is NOT back. And, he had some thoughts on the Longhorns’ starting QB, Sam Ehlinger, with @TedLehman11 and @Tyler_McComas. #Sooners pic.twitter.com/7BZ9wS5Vjw— SportsTalk1400 (@Sportstalk1400) June 19, 2019last_img read more

SXSW Declared a DroneFree Zone

first_img Register Now » 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.center_img We know you love your drone. We know you two are inseparable. But please don’t bring your drone to SXSW.In a press statement this week, the organizers behind the Austin, Texas-based conference set out a no-drones policy, citing a city ordinance. The group stressed concerns for safety should “airwaves and/or frequency spectrums generally used in the remote control of drones are too congested during the SXSW event to ensure operation safe from interference.”Related: Beyond Comfy Shoes and Extra Chargers: The Advanced Guide to Surviving SXSWAccording to the statement, drones flown in crowded or public areas could be seized, with the owners subject to fines or arrest. Drones flown with certain safety measures in mind, such as tethering to the ground, can still be flown at the festival, such as during the annual trade show.What this means, of course, is that there’s one less place you and your drone can go together, including national parks, Coachella, Spring Training in Arizona, the Super Bowl and the Idaho Falls Nuclear Training Facility.This will make special trips together more difficult. Maybe wait to tell your drone.Related: Phone Low on Battery? At SXSW, You Can Have a Dog Bring You a Charger.  March 13, 2015last_img read more

Samsung to Show Off Smart Glasses and Directional Speaker at CES

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Samsung today offered a peek at three new projects brewing inside its in-house idea incubator Creative Lab (C-Lab).The tech giant plans to show off the projects — a portable directional speaker dubbed Sound Ray (S-Ray), a device called GoBreath that can help people with lung damage, and a pair of smart eyeglasses with an accompanying app called Relúmino — at CES in Las Vegas next week.Samsung first showed off its Relúmino app at Mobile World Congress last year, and now the team behind it has developed a pair of smart eyeglasses that can “help people with vision challenges see images clearer when they are reading a book or viewing an object,” the company wrote in a news release.”The glasses work in conjunction with a smartphone, utilizing its processors and batteries, which makes Relúmino glasses light and comfortable to wear,” Samsung explained. “The smartphone processes images from videos projected through the camera of the glasses, and the processed images are floated into the display of the Relúmino glasses to help the wearer see things better.”Meanwhile, the GoBreath recovery solution is for those suffering from postoperative pulmonary complications. Developed by a doctor at the Samsung Medical Center, the portable device and mobile app aim to teach patients techniques such as inhalation, coughing and deep breathing.”Patients can refer to exercise guidelines and check how well their lungs have recovered through the app,” Samsung wrote. “GoBreath even offers a web and cloud service for doctors to help them monitor their patients’ recovery progress as well as provide reminders to practice.”Finally, S-Ray aims to let you listen to music or podcasts without having to wear uncomfortable earphones, or annoying others around you by playing music over a Bluetooth speaker. Existing directional speakers are “primarily stationary due to their size and price,” Samsung says, but S-Ray is “much smaller, lighter and portable…while maintaining the advantages of conventional directional speakers and/or earphones.”Besides those three projects, seven startups that have spun out of C-Lab will showcase newly released products that are hitting the market. Those startups include Linkflow, Kitten Planet, lululab, Kidsoft, Mangoslab, Innomdle lab and analogue plus.”Since launching five years ago, our C-Lab program has gained exciting momentum across Samsung, helping foster an innovation culture, and providing avenue for our creative, talented employees to pursue innovative new projects,” Vice President and Head of Samsung’s Creativity & Innovation Center Jaiil Lee said in a statement. “We will continuously introduce innovative projects through our C-Lab program.” Register Now » This story originally appeared on PCMag January 3, 2018 3 min readlast_img read more
