  • Diabetes surgery named top medical innovation for 2013
    Cleveland Clinic physicians and researchers named bariatric surgery for diabetes as the top medical innovation for 2013, according to a survey.

  • Teaching weight-maintenance skills may help diets succeed
    Stanford University researchers said people who worked on weight-loss maintenance skills before they started a diet were more likely to sustain their weight loss for one year. The study on the website of the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology focused on "stability first" skills such as learning to find low-fat and low-calorie foods, daily weighing and experimenting with losing weight before vacations and holidays.

  • "The Biggest Loser" may negatively impact views on exercise
    College students who watched a seven-minute clip of the TV show "The Biggest Loser" showed worse attitudes toward exercise compared with those who watched an "American Idol" clip, results that were consistent regardless of the students' exercise levels, a study found. The findings suggest that shows such as "The Biggest Loser" may discourage people from exercising, rather than motivate them, researchers said. The results will appear in the American Journal of Health Behavior. HealthDay News (10/30) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Drinking thick beverages may bolster satiety
    A study in the journal Flavour revealed drinks with thicker viscosity may help boost satiety and sustain it for longer periods compared with thinner drinks. Drinks with creamy consistency also appeared to increase the participants' expectations about satiety, but not as much as thicker beverages, researchers noted.

  • Obesity researchers focus on sense of smell
    Scientists who study obesity are turning their attention to the olfactory bulb, which relays smell information and is dense with insulin receptors. Research indicates that mice bred to have a better sense of smell are resistant to obesity, but they lose that resistance if the olfactory bulb is removed.
