I’m going to be 30 on Sunday and people say, ‘Are you OK about turning 30?’ And I guess I am, but I guess Im not because I feel like everybody always says ‘It goes downhill from there.’ So I just thought maybe if I get ahead of it a little I won’t have to work so hard later in life.” Miranda said following a junk-food diet and drinking a lot while on tour contributed to her weight gain, but she’s determined to get in the best shape of her life before dropping her new album. “All through my twenties I worked a lot. I was on the road since I was 17 and the road life is a lot of fast food and a lot of late nights and a lot of drinking. I didnt give up drinking. I refused.

Teens Seeking Weight-Loss Surgery Have Startling Number of Health Issues, Study Says
teens seeking weight-loss surgery have a startling number of health problems that used to be seen only in adults, according to a major government-funded study. Half the teens had at least four major illnesses linked with their excess weight. Three out of four had cholesterol problems; almost half had high blood pressure or joint pain; and many had diseased livers or kidneys. These kids weighed three times more than what is considered healthy, they weren’t just teens “who want to fit into that cheerleading outfit better,” said Dr. Thomas Inge, the study’s lead researcher and a surgeon at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The study offers reassuring evidence that obesity surgery is generally safe for teens, echoing previous short-term research.

What Happens During Weight Loss Surgery?
Only 1% of obese people in the U.S. who could potentially benefit from weight loss surgery have had it. As more people are having weight loss surgery than ever before, medical researchers have also begun to report solidly favorable study results on its safety and weight loss potential. People who have bariatric surgery can have dramatic weight loss. What’s more, they can often maintain much of their initial weight loss for as long as 10 years after surgery. Bariatric surgery works in three basic ways: Restricting how much food your stomach can hold at any time Preventing your digestive system from absorbing all the nutrition in the food you eat A combination of these two ways Restrictive Weight Loss Surgery: Gastric Banding and Gastroplasty The two purely restrictive types of weight loss surgery done today are called gastric banding and vertical sleeve gastrectomy.

NATO stages exercise as rearming Russia worries some allies
Despite the prevalence of this disabling symptom, there are no effective pharmacological or behavioral treatments. “Aerobic exercise may be the first effective treatment for MS patients with memory problems,” noted Dr. Leavitt, research scientist in Neuropsychology & Neuroscience Research at Kessler Foundation. “Moreover, aerobic exercise has the advantages of being readily available, low cost, self-administered, and lacking in side effects.” No beneficial effects were seen with non-aerobic exercise. Dr. Leavitt noted that the positive effects of aerobic exercise were specific to memory; other cognitive functions such as executive functioning and processing speed were unaffected.

In operations reminiscent of the Cold War, Russian bombers now periodically approach NATO airspace. In response, British fighters scrambled 29 times in 2010-12 while non-NATO Japan and even neutral Sweden have been on the receiving end of such missions. Latvia says Russian military aircraft have come close to flying over its territory 37 times in 2013 alone, compared with perhaps once or twice a year five years ago. Naval activity has risen, including a task force sent to the Arctic in August. “We’ve seen an increase in the frequency of Russian military activities and the substantial modernization of their capability,” General Charles H Jacoby, commander of the U.S.

Are exercise videos right for you?
For example, if you’ve been taking kickboxing classes for several years, and you know you are executing the moves properly (which also minimizes the risk of injury), taking on a kickboxing video is right up your alley. Remember, exercising in the privacy of your own home may be very appealing to you, but don’t be lulled into a false sense of security. There are no trainers or fitness instructors there to tell you if you are or aren’t doing something correctly. If you’re home alone, there won’t be anyone around to help you if you injure yourself.
