Ebook RMRDiet Diet/Weight/Exercise Tracking Program

RMRDiet ‘Diet/Weight/Exercise’ Tracker is a user-friendly but powerful program that will aid you in tracking your food and calorie intake, your exercise and calorie expenditure, and your overall weight loss or healthy eating program. In all the screens, the lower button bar has 3 icons to switch between the diet, Weight, Exercise screens, then a User button (set through the Edit > Preferences menu option), an Add button and a Meal button (in the Diet screen) or Default button (in the Exercise screen).

Then in the Diet and Exercise screens the date is on the right and defaults to 'today' but can be changed with a popup calendar if you tap on it (or use the menu option Edit > Jump to date) if you need to make entries or view data for other dates. Two adjacent 'arrow' icons allow you to easily go back or forward by days.

Nutrition & Prostate Cancer

Scientific evidence suggests that differences in diet and lifestyle may account in large part for the variability of prostate cancer rates in different countries. Good nutrition may reduce the incidence of prostate cancer and help reduce the risk of prostate cancer progression. There are many studies currently being conducted to help further understand how diet and prostate cancer are related.

We do know, however, that improved nutrition reduces risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, and usually improves overall quality of life. It is estimated that one-third of cancer deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to diet in adulthood, including diet’s effect on obesity. Additionally, a healthy diet helps to increase energy levels, facilitate recovery, and enhance the immune system.

Ebook The Total Wellbeing Diet

The CSIRO has spent the past few years exploring the healthiest, most successful ways to lose weight. It now gives me great pleasure to join forces with The Australian Women’s Weekly and Meat and Livestock Australia to bring you, for the first time, a strategy to lose weight that has been clinically tested to maximise fat loss as well as improve your health and wellbeing. Although there are many ways to lose weight, this new strategy – an eating plan that provides more protein and less refined carbohydrate – has been shown to result in significant fat loss, as well as improvement in overall good health.

We know that eating protein foods means less hunger after meals and eating fewer refined carbohydrates helps us to sustain our energy levels throughout the day. For these reasons, and many others, this exciting new diet plan provides an edge that makes successful weight loss a reality. When it comes to your health, you can’t afford to compromise.

Ebook vegetarian foods: powerful tools for health

A vegetarian menu is a powerful and pleasurable way to achieve good health. The vegetarian eating pattern is based on a wide variety of foods that are satisfying, delicious, and healthful. Vegetarians avoid meat, fish, and poultry.

Those who include dairy products and eggs in their diets are called lacto-ovo vegetarians. Vegans eat no meat, fish, poultry, eggs, or dairy products. While there is a considerable advantage to a lacto-ovo vegetarian pattern, vegan diets are the most healthful of all,reducing risk of a broad range of health concerns.

Ebook Diet, Energy, and Global Warming

As world population rises (2.5, 4.1, and 6.5 billion individuals in 1950,1975, and 2005, respectively; United Nations 2005), human-induced environmental pressures mount. By some measures, one of the most pressing environmental issues is global climate change related to rising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs). The link between observed rising atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and other GHGs, and observed rising global mean temperature and other climatic changes, is not unequivocally established. Nevertheless, the accumulating evidence makes the putative link harder to dismiss.

As early as 2000, the United Nations–sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Houghton et al.2001) found the evidence sufficiently strong to state that “there is new and stronger evidence that most of the warming observed over the last 50 years is attributable to human activities” and that “[t]he balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate.” If one views anthropogenic climate change as an undesirable eventuality, it follows that modifying the ways we conduct various aspects of our lives is required in order to reduce GHG emissions. Many changes can realistically only occur following policy changes (e.g.,switching some transportation volume to less CO2-intensive modes). However, in addition to policy-level issues, energy consumption is strongly affected by individual personal, daily-life choices.

Menopause Handbook

About the SOGC Established in 1944, The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) is one of North America’s oldest national organizations devoted to the specialty of obstetrics and gynaecology. The mission of the SOGC is to promote optimal women’s health through leadership, collaboration, education, research and advocacy in the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology.

2006 Menopause Consensus Report The Society welcomes all specialists in obstetrics and gynaecology, general practitioners, researchers, nurses, midwives and other healthcare providers in Canada and internationally. English and French are the official languages of the SOGC.

Ebook The Effect Of Diet/Supplement Intake And Competitive Swimming/Gymnastics Upon Bone Mineral Density Of Collegiate Females

The key to osteoporosis prevention is maximal accrual of peak bone mass (11,14,19). Most of the skeletal mass is accrued during the first twenty years of life (20). Because peak bone mass is achieved at such a young age this study will examine the influence of modifiable factors (diet and exercise) on bone mineral density in young women, age 18 to 21 years.

The rate of bone accrual during puberty is second only to the rapid accumulation of bone that occurs in-utero (21). Up to 60% of bone mass is achieved during adolescence (7). Bone growth is nearly complete by the age of 18, with greater than 90% of peak bone mass (7,22). In girls, approximately one third of their total skeletal mineral is accumulated in the three to four years following onset of puberty. It has been shown that by the age of sixteen years that daughters have accumulated 90 to 97% of their premenopausal mothers’ bone mass (11). The skeleton will reach full size and density in the first three decades of life; generally peak bone mass is achieved between the age of 18 and 30 years (11,23).

Ebook The Potential for Dietary Supplements to Reduce Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) Symptoms

The term premenstrual syndrome (PMS) refers to a cluster of mood, physical and cognitive symptoms that occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and subside with the onset of menstruation. As many as 80% of women of reproductive age may experience premenstrual emotional and physical changes. Up to 40% of women of reproductive age experience premenstrual symptoms sufficient to affect their daily lives to some degree, and 3% to 5% experience severe impairment in a disease state known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder [2]. Symptoms vary among individuals; the most common symptoms include fatigue, irritability, abdominal bloating, breast tenderness, labile mood with alternating sadness and anger, and moodiness/depression.

A wide variety of strategies for PMS have been proposed.For women with mild symptoms, education, supportive counseling and general self-care measures such as increased exercise and adoption of a healthful diet are sometimes sufficient. For those with severe symptoms, a variety of drugs may be helpful. These include fluoxetine (Prozac) or other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, the anxiolytic drug alprazolam (Xanax), oral contraceptives, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, the diuretic spironolactone, and (in extreme cases) gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists that temporarily obliterate the menstrual cycle.

Ebook Modulation of Aberrant Crypt Foci and Apoptosis by Dietary Herbal Supplements (Quercetin, Curcumin, Silymarin, Ginseng and Rutin)

Colon cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. It has been estimated that this cancer will develop in over 147,000 people and 56,000 will die from this disease [1]. Colon cancer is a well-studied cancer but the progress in the field of preventing or curing this disease has not been significant. While there are chemotherapeutic drugs available for the treatment of this disease the majority of the patients do not respond to these drugs and side effects remain problematic. Therefore, emphasis has been focused upon variety of clinical and basic studies of chemoprevention using naturally occurring dietary substances, since they might provide useful strategies to inhibit colon cancer with minimal toxicity [2].

The use of herbs as medicines dates back to the origins of civilized man. The
earliest know written records of herbal medicines written by Sumerians on the medicinal use of opium poppy, thyme, licorice and mustard plant. Moreover, the Asian cultures have a long recorded history of herbal use dating back more than three thousand years.The United States has a much shorter history of medicinal herbal use. However, it is interesting to note that the use of herbs and alternative medicine is more popular now then ever before. Recent estimates from National Institute of Health-Office of Dietary Supplements (NIH-ODS) suggest that 40–55% of Americans (>100 million people) use supplements on a regular basis, and 24% (> 24 million people) of these people use herbal supplements.

Ebook Dietary Supplements and Military Divers A Synopsis for Undersea Medical Officers

The variety, availability, sales and use of dietary supplements (DS) remain poorly understood by the mainstream medical community, but the potential for use and abuse of DS cannot be taken lightly by undersea medical officers (UMO). Despite the indisputable pharmacologic effects many of these over-the-counter (OTC) products exert, the use of DS is generally overlooked by clinicians. DS information is not covered in much depth, if at all, in medical education, and physicians are not trained in this area. As such, many may feel uncomfortable with their lack of familiarity regarding the ever-increasing supplement pharmacopoeia.

Peer-reviewed scientific research and evidenced-based information are often limited.Moreover, because the general public and active duty community perceive these natural substances as harmless, the products often do not come to the attention of physicians at all. Less than half of all users of DS consult a physician or a practitioner about alternative products (Aeromed).
