          There are several ways to deal with stress. They are called lifestyle changes:
          *Develop more healthful and positive dietary habits. Avoid fatty foods and increase your carbohydrate intake. Also reduce your consumption of alcohol and caffeine, which can have negative effects, including an increase in stress and anxiety and disturbance of sleep patterns."

          Gah. CW crap.

          And I'm supposed to be rescuing people?

            It makes me sad that people are trying hard to do the right thing but failing because they have the wrong information.
            Without question, bacon is the most interesting meat in the world, and if it were capable of original thought, we wouldn't even be having an election this November in America. We would simply appoint bacon as our forever leader and live dutifully under its rule.

                Omg! Exciting!!!! If WebMD is on board, we can expect everyone else to follow suit pretty soon.

                Although,
                Levels of the stress hormone cortisol and C-reactive protein -- an indicator of inflammation in the body -- were higher during the low-carb phase of the study.

                "The metabolic benefits of this diet may be undermined by more inflammation and higher cortisol, both of which can increase heart disease and stroke risk over time," Ludwig says.
                I wonder what the diet consisted of. It was probably pretty high in O6 and vegetable oil. So the results weren't as good as they could have been.

                But hell, it's a step in the right direction (away from calories-in-calories-out) and they note that more study is warranted. I'm pleased!

                • Random thought:

                  In the "All I need to know about life I learned from Star Trek" department, it makes perfect sense what happened to the tribbles. They gorged on grain and were stuffed to the gills, and died of starvation. Now on the show they posited that the grain was poisoned, but I like to think that the grain itself WAS poison.

                  Like I said, random thought, but makes sense, doesn't it? After all, CW proves that one can be overweight and malnourished.

                    This is great but, as with most studies, I seem to find holes in the outcomes. Ok so cortisol levels and C-reactive proteins were higher during the low-carb phase of the study probably because the body was adjusting to burning fat instead of glucose. Also, because it was slightly higher for ONE MONTH doesn't mean it would continue that way UNLESS it was like that over a long stretch of time. Of course a lot of stress is bad for your health! I don't know about you guys but since I started eating primally, stress has been a thing of the past.

                    Now let's do a study on why those levels were elevated for that month and see how they are in the long-term!

                    CW: 171 7/27/12 (33lbs!)
                    GW: 145ish? Who cares. I just want to look good naked

                      Yeah, there are definitely problems with the study. But it's still encouraging that they intend to do follow-ups, as opposed to the findings being "inconclusive" because they don't match up with the lipid hypothesis, with no intended future studies.

                      And the fact that WebMD even published something that doesn't sync up in lockstep with "calories in, calories out" / "saturated fat clogs your arteries, duh" is, to me, a great victory.

                      • FDA approves drug to treat some obese, overweight adults (Belviq)

                        FDA approves drug to treat some obese, overweight adults – - CNN.com Blogs

                        According to the article:
                        The most common side effects of Belviq in non-diabetic patients include headache, dizziness and fatigue; and in diabetic patients low blood sugar and pain, according to the FDA.

                        WHY OH WHY DO WE REJOICE IN YET ANOTHER "PILL" TO CURE OUR OBESITY PROBLEM... AND WHY WOULD PEOPLE PUT THESE CHEMICALS IN THEIR BODIES AND PUT UP WITH THESE SIDE EFFECTS? JUST EAT RIGHT, ALREADY!!
                        It makes me sad that people are trying hard to do the right thing but failing because they have the wrong information.

                        • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Wednesday approved Belviq, or lorcaserin hydrochloride, to be combined with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise, for treatment of chronic weight problems.
                          I thought that according to CW, this was all that was needed to lose weight in the first place? But then again, the drug companies don't make any money off of that.

                            The problem is that the national diet guidelines are so frakked up that people think they already are eating right. People have been trained to think that the reason their "healthy" diet isn't working is because they are just personally flawed in some way, whether biologically, or because of insufficient willpower.

                            Don't worry. Conventional wisdom will hopefully change in the next few years. The ball is already rolling. And with the new scientific knowledge out there that people eat constantly BECAUSE they are fat, not the other way around, I have a feeling that a lot of fat people will latch onto that. Because anyone who has dieted knows about the insatiable hunger, and knows (if only deep down) that it can't possibly be their fault that they buckled in the face of urges that strong. (And, frankly, no one wants to take personal responsibility for anything, whether it's their fault or not. In this case, it's not, so I expect it to be even more exciting news to people.)

                            That being said, *headdesk at that pill*

                            • Yeah.... you know, at least it is better than the pill that caused weightloss via anal leakage.
