It is official!! Losing weight is no piece of cake

We all find it difficult to meet our weight loss resolutions, and now a new study has made it official that it is indeed tough to shed those extra kilos.

New studies by McMaster University researchers reviewed hundreds of recent studies published in the past decade about the prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity among children, among adults and about keeping lost weight off.

There were small improvements in weight outcomes. The programs that work best targeted school-aged children and youth, were delivered in educational settings, included both diet and exercise and lasted 12 weeks to a year.
Regarding treating overweight/obesity among children and youth, a review of 31 studies found: Evidence showed that enrolment in a program that focuses on changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle can help reduce weight and, more importantly, enrolment in such a program also improves health and quality of life in children and adolescents. However, the permanence of this weight loss has not been well studied.

Almost no trials have been conducted to investigate programs that help normal-weight adults maintain their normal weight. A single small study conducted in the U.S. in the 1980s showed benefits from a 12-month education and incentive-based program.

Doing some activity is better than doing nothing. Adults who took part in some form of treatment had, on aver age, a three kilogram (or seven pound) greater weight loss than adults who did not.

The current study included 21,000 people, who were aged 30, 40 or 50 between 1991-1997. None of the participants then showed signs of alcohol dependency. A quarter of the men, 25 percent, and slightly less than 4 percent of the women used snus upon the first examination. Men showed slightly higher figures for alcohol dependency than women. In total, 499 men and 257 women developed alcohol dependency.

Those who, upon the first investigation, who were aged 50, had a lower risk than those aged 30. That there is a connection association between smoking and alcohol dependency has been known for a long time, says a study that appeared in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence.

New treatment for muscle cramp found effective

A very new treatment being found by the US researches has been found very effective in lessening the intensity of muscle cramps by as much as thrice. The new treatment would prove to be beneficial for them who suffer from muscle cramps due to neuromuscular disorders from nighttime leg cramps that could hamper sleep.

"These leg cramps can cause distress, interrupted sleep, reduced quality of life and interference with activities of daily living," said study author Rod MacKinnon, a Nobel laureate and co-founder of Flex Pharma in Boston.

Currently, there are no approved treatments for nocturnal leg cramps, MacKinnon said. The new treatment is based on research that shows cramps are caused by excessive firing of neurons in the spinal cord that control muscle contractions.

The treatment is designed to stop the firing of the neurons by stimulating the transient receptor potential (TRP) on channels. For the study, the researchers used an electrical neurostimulator to induce muscle cramps in the feet of 37 healthy people. While half of the participants received the treatment other half received a placebo. When participants received the treatment, which was taken by mouth, their cramps were three times less intense than when they received the placebo. The treatment showed the effect within minutes and lasted up to six to eight hours.
