caption Ketogenic diets are high in fat and essentially cut a person’s sugar intake to nil. source Africa Studio/Shutterstock Six years ago, David Harper considered himself relatively healthy. The anatomy and physiology professor loved an occasional cookie, but he exercised often, cooked nutritious meals at home, and tried to stick to conventional nutrition advice: not too many calories, low amounts of fat. But Harper started to realize that saturated fat might not be so bad, and that maybe it was the carbohydrates he ate that were causing him to pile on extra pounds and increasing inflammation. “We’ve been telling people to eat the wrong diet for 40 years, and we’ve seen the results,” Harper told Business Insider.

Marilynn Marchione Associated Press Published 1:06 p.m. UTC Aug 26, 2018 For the first time, a drug has been shown to help people lose weight and keep it off for several years without raising their risk for heart problems – a safety milestone that may encourage wider use to help curb the obesity epidemic. The drug, Belviq, has been sold in the United States since 2013 and is the first of several new weight-loss medicines to complete a long-term heart safety study now required by federal regulators to stay on the market. “Patients and their doctors have been nervous about using drugs to treat obesity and for good reason.

Tech & Science Orangetheory Fitness, the fitness program that claims to help participants burn calories even after the workout ends, has gained popularity among the fitness and weight loss communities. However, the question remains for those wanting to reduce: Are trendy fitness programs like OTF the best path for a weight loss journey? The fitness franchise is quickly growing across the world.

Melia Robinson/Business Insider Silicon Valley's favorite diet is called intermittent fasting, and it involves abstaining from food for anywhere from 16 hours to several days. Although you can eat basically whatever you want on the diet, intermittent fasting has been linked with weight loss that's on par with traditional diets. Fasting may have health benefits that go beyond losing weight, however, according to a small new study: It could make for a healthier blood pressure and increased insulin sensitivity. intermittent fasting that frees its followers from calorie counting and carb cutting is quickly gaining traction in Silicon Valley. Scientific research suggests its followers are onto something big. Popularized by Bay Area health nuts who don't mind being guinea pigs for science, intermittent fasting (or simply "IF" among fans), involves limiting the time you eat to a specific time period each day.

David Prologo, Emory University (THE CONVERSATION) Imagine that you are running a company, but you cannot get to your goal because all of your good workers keep quitting. For 30 years, your response to this problem has been to criticize the workers and say they are stupid and weak for quitting. As a result, you never reach your goal. You don’t change your formula or alter your plan, just keep blaming and shaming the workers for quitting. If you did this, your failure rate would remain unchanged over time, of course, and you would never reach your goal.
