Immune system could hold key to weight loss

weighing scalesEating less to lose weight does not work for everyone. Now a team including Irish scientists  have discovered your immune system plays a major role in regulating body weight.

It could be responsible for as much as 40pc of your body’s ability to regulate weight.

The team of researchers who made this ground breaking discovery includes Prof Donal O’ Shea, consultant endocrinologist at St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin and Dr Lydia Lynch, associate professor at Trinity College Dublin.

Tips to maintain a healthy weight

weighing scalesRetrictive diets are avoided by people who consistently maintain a healthy weight.

They are, however, more likely to eat breakfast, exercise regularly and stick to high quality, non-processed food.

In a bid to shed light on how these people remain slim and healthy Cornell Food and Brand Lab researchers analysed the behavior of 147 adults.

Eggs have been found to improve glucose balance and have been linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes and lower blood glucose levels.

Men in the study who ate four eggs a week had a 37pc lower risk of type 2 diabetes than those who only ate one egg a week.

Pomegranate juice and a handful of sticky dates every day are a winning combination in the fight against heart disease.

Just half a glass of the red pomegranate juice with the dates is enough.

Researchers at the Technion –Israel Institute of Technology, led by Prof Michael Aviram have discovered that the combination provides maximum protection against atherosclerosis – the plaque build up which hardens the arteries – which can lead to heart attack or stroke.
