Wednesday, February 3, 2010
It's time for you to make a breakthrough in weight-loss program. Breakthrough that I mean eating the right foods/nutrient so that the weight-loss program can be achieved without torturing yourself.

Some research says, eating certain foods will increase the burning of calories in your body, but also reduces food addiction.

Here are 9 types of foods that can help you reduce your weight.

1. Oat
Oatmeal is ranked top in terms of filling in between other foods. Unlike most carbohydrates, oats-even though that type of instant-be digested slowly. Thus, these foods little effect on blood sugar.

2. Beef
Contrary to popular perception, eating beef steak was able to reduce your weight. Research published The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says, the woman in his diet includes red meat recorded more weight than those who ate the same amount of calories with a little beef. Protein content in the steak, the researchers say, can maintain the muscle during a weight-loss program.

3. Eggs
Egg will not break your heart, but it helps you several inches thinner. Research experts at Louisiana State University Baton Rouge show, women who undergo low-calorie diet and ate eggs, bread and jelly each morning lost weight two times more than those who breakfast bagel with the same amount of calories but no eggs. According to the researchers, eggs make full, so you eat less.

4. Apple
An apple a day can prevent weight gain, according to research by scientists at Penn State University. Those who ate an apple before eating pasta listed eat fewer calories than those who ate other snacks. Apples have a high fiber -4 to 5 grams, which makes a full stomach. Remarkably again, antioxidants in apples may prevent metabolic syndrome, characterized by accumulation of fat in the abdominal circumference.

5. Yogurt
Dieters called plain yogurt as the perfect food. With a combination of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, yogurt can suppress hunger by keeping blood sugar levels remain stable. Study the experts at the University of Tennessee, said they are low-calorie diet by adding fat yogurt decreased the total 61 percent larger and 81 percent abdominal fat than those who diet without the yogurt.

6. Avocado
Do not let the fat content in an avocado (29 grams) makes you worry. That's what makes this food into the best weight-lowering. Content of monounsaturated fat contained in them can increase satiety.

7. Olive oil
Like avocados, olive oil has a fat content that increases satiety, and stop the appetite. Research also shows olive oil as a potent anti-inflammatory.

8. Lentils
Lentils are the best foods to streamline the stomach. They are high in protein and soluble fiber, two nutrients that can stabilize blood sugar levels. Eating lentils can prevent the insulin spike that makes your body to form fat, especially in the abdominal area.

9. Parmesan
Women who drink whole milk or eat cheese every day tend to be not too experienced weight gain, according to a study published the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. -Lowfat dairy fans just do not get the same benefits. Whole milk products have linoleic acid, which can help your body burn fat.

Prevent Fatigue With Coffee

Physical exercise is drained of energy. But, let us not be weary before practice. Therefore, intake of coffee can make our minds up so that the body does not quickly get tired.

This was confirmed by the results of the study from The Australian Institute of Sport. According to the researchers, caffeine in coffee can "push" muscles to burn fat (instead of carbohydrate) as a source of energy.

Research conducted on cycling athletes showed that athletes who drank a cup of coffee before exercise, was able to practice longer than those who drank only water.

The puzzle of HIV AIDS Drugs Began to Lift

Since the beginning of AIDS epidemic nearly 60 million people have been infected with HIV and 25 million people died related to HIV. Although the combination of several drugs can make patients still look healthy, but until now there is no vaccine or medicine that can cure this disease. Data of the United Nations in the year 2008 there were 33.4 million people infected with HIV and 2 million of whom died of AIDS.

Scientists began to solve an important puzzle about HIV / AIDS. Research over the past 20 years has led to the discovery of better treatments for people living with HIV.

British researchers and the United States has managed to grow a crystal that allows researchers to see the structure of an enzyme called integrase. This enzyme is found in retroviruses such as HIV and is a target for a new HIV drug.

Scientists from Imperial and Harvard announced that it has successfully had the structure of the integrase of the virus. This means that researchers can begin to understand how the work of the integrase inhibitor drugs and how to stop the development of HIV / AIDS.

In the Nature journal, Cherepanov explains when human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected a person, virus uses the integrase enzyme to insert copies of genetic information in DNA of that person.

Some new drugs like Isentress for HIV from Merck & Co. and Elvitegravir (experimental drug from Gilead Sciences) works by blocking integrase. But the scientists do not know exactly how the work of the integrase and how to fix it. The only way to know is to get high-quality crystals.

It takes more than 40,000 tests in order to obtain a high-quality crystals that allows researchers to view three-dimensional structure. Researchers made crystals by using loans from the retroviral integrase similar to HIV. Researchers examining crystals from Merck medicines and Gilead in order to see how these drugs bind and inhibit integrase work.
