Lipoic Acid and ALC Rejuvenate Muscle and Liver Energy Production

Wednesday, July 13, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

R-Alpha lipoic Acid and Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) show synergistic activity towards boosting the energy production in cells.  This information can be used to improve your ability to exercise or to help correct serious metabolic problems such as type 2 diabetes.  Several recent studies illustrate how these nutrients work to enhance your production of energy.

Supplemental use of R-alpha Lipoic Acid has the therapeutic potential to correct abnormal insulin signaling and insulin resistance, key factors to correct in individuals stuck at a higher-than-normal body weight.


Are Food Cravings and Excess Food Consumption a Sign of Brain Damage?

Tuesday, July 12, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

The problem with sliding down the slippery slope of slow and progressive weight gain over the years is that you may have a lot of trouble pulling yourself up and out of the hole.  In fact, new science says you most likely caused brain damage by eating too much food.  Such damage causes you to keep on craving and keep on eating what you know you shouldn’t.  A variety of new studies shed light on the complex and fascinating subject of food cravings and your mind.


Grape Seed Extract Boosts Muscle Energy & Calorie Burning

Friday, July 08, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

Several new studies are demonstrating a potent energetic improvement in muscles following supplementation with grape seed extract.  These animal studies are unique as they are able to document which genes are getting activated, helping to prove the molecular function of grape seed extract to enhance energy production and exercise ability.


Diet Soda Proves Fattening When Put to the Test

Tuesday, July 05, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

I have explained for many years that there are sweet-related leptin receptors on your tongue. When you eat something sweet this system of communication goes directly to your brain and activates metabolism to help deal with calories coming in. When the calories are absent your metabolism gets confused and you eat more food later.


Is Gut Bacteria More Important than Calories When it Comes to Body Weight?

Sunday, July 03, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

A new Harvard study published in the New England Journal of Medicine is helping to clarify which foods contribute to weight gain – with some surprising results.  The study includes 120,000 men and women from three large cohorts followed for 12-20 years. The study shows that inactivity is not a good thing and then sleeping less than 6 hours or more than 8 is also trouble. But the news-generating headlines have come from the foods that either did or didn’t cause weight gain. Regular consumption of yogurt turned out to the most helpful of all foods – not because of calories but because of friendly flora in the yogurt.


Is a Starvation Diet the Remedy for the Diabetes Epidemic?

Saturday, July 02, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

Global health authorities were recently shocked to find that cases of type 2 diabetes have doubled across the world in the past three decades. Drugs to treat the problem are proving an utter failure. And a 600 calorie-per-day starvation diet was proven to reverse the problem in patients diagnosed within the past four years.


USDA Proves Whey Protein Helps Weight Loss

Thursday, June 23, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

Researchers at the United States Department of Agriculture have published the results of a double-blind, randomized clinical trial showing that whey protein—but not soy protein—is a powerful tool to help weight-loss efforts.


High Protein Breakfast Dampens Hunger Drive Later in the Day

Saturday, June 04, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

Those of you familiar with the Five Rules of the Leptin Diet, know that Rule #4 is; Eat a Breakfast Containing Protein.  I have long explained that a high protein breakfast can boost the metabolic rate up to 30% for as long as 12 hours and provide lower insulin release, while assisting with food cravings. New research at the University of Missouri agrees with my preference for the high protein breakfast.


Get Rid of Your Cravings to Help Make Healthier Fat

Wednesday, May 25, 2011  -  Byron J Richards

One of my key themes for improving your metabolism is improving the fitness of your fat. This means making healthier white adipose tissue cells and reducing the inflammation coming from white adipose tissue. It also means restoring the proper balance of brown fat cells which are very handy for disposing of calories as heat. A new animal study demonstrates that when the primary food craving signal in your brain, NPY, is blunted then you start making more brown adipose tissue cells – a rather novel discovery.
