One Portion-Controlled Meal Per Day May Lead To Weight Loss

A diet does not have to involve a drastic overhaul of eating habits, as new research reveals that just one portion-controlled meal daily can make a big difference in weight loss over a year.

Gut Viruses Highly Influenced By Diet

The medical community remains unsure how the host of viruses present in the human gut contributes to health and disease, but recent research suggests that diet has a lot to do with viral populations in the intestine.

Cholesterol-Lowering Food Tops Low-Fat

People counseled to eat cholesterol-lowering food such as soy and nuts had lower cholesterol than those on a low-fat diet, researchers in Canada say. The study says those who ate the cholesterol-lowering diet had a greater drop in their LDL, “bad,” cholesterol levels.

Moderate Drinking Reduces Dementia Risk

Moderate drinking — no more than two drinks a day for men and one for women — reduces risk of dementia and cognitive impairment, U.S. researchers say. Wine was more beneficial than beer or spirits.

The USDA Food Safety Joke On Us

The United States Department of Agriculture knew a dangerous form of salmonella was present at a Cargill, Inc. turkey plant but did not inform the company until after one person died and 77 others were sickened by the bacteria. Cargill and the USDA announced the recall of ground turkey from the Cargill plant in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 3. It was the third-largest meat recall in history and involved 36 million pounds of ground turkey.

Easy Ways To Cut Calories

Dieters may not need as much willpower as they think if they change their eating environment and how they eat, a U.S. researcher says. One myth, he says, is that people know when they are full and stop before they overeat.

Storing and using dried eggs and powdered milk

Fresh eggs and fresh dairy products are hard to store and highly perishable. My husband and I have chickens and gather fresh eggs every day.
