Eat meat – gain weight

A research team from my Alma Mater, Imperial College, London has performed a research on meat consumption and weight gain. The study tested 400,000 people from ten European countries and showed that those who consumed more meat gained more weight even when they consumed the same number of calories as others who ate less meat.

Change your if to when

I have emphasized the value of asking good questions.  One way of asking good question’s is to change the if to when if you expect the question to be answered positively.

Use public transportation and reduce your weight

Recent research by scientists at University of Pennsylvania  has demonstrated that people who use public transportation will reduce their weight. The researchers did not propose the reason for such weight loss. My own guess is that you walk more when you use public transportation. When I lived in London I took the tube (subway) and […]
