Weight Loss Could be More about Carbon Dioxide Than Calories

Weight loss. Dieting. Fat-Burning. These are all terms that are often used interchangeably to represent the idea that a person can “lose weight” through a healthy “diet” which helps to “burn fat.”

But while all that makes sense it does actually beg the question: If I’m losing weight, where does the weight go?

Well, a team of researchers actually looked into it.

“There is unsurprising ignorance and confusion about the metabolic process of weight loss,” reports Professor Andrew Brown, head of the UNSW School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences.

Accordingly, physicist Ruben Meerman, the lead study author, adds, “The correct answer is that most of the mass is breathed out as carbon dioxide. It goes into thin air.”

Meerman discusses his inspiration for this project, “I lost 15 kilograms in 2013 and simply wanted to know where those kilograms were going. After a self-directed, crash course in biochemistry, I stumbled onto this amazing result.”

He continues, “With a worldwide obesity crisis occurring, we should all know the answer to the simple question of where the fat goes. The fact that almost nobody could answer it took me by surprise, but it was only when I showed Andrew my calculations that we both realized how poorly this topic is being taught.”

Meerman describes that at least the majority of doctors, dieticians, and personal trainers all thought that fat was converted into energy and heat. But that’s not their fault, because the study results, apparently “violates the Law of Conservation of Mass. We suspect this misconception is caused by the energy in/energy out mantra surrounding weight loss.”

The authors say, “The misconceptions we have encountered reveal surprising unfamiliarity about basic aspects of how the human body works.”Read more at:MarieProm backless prom dresses

The Dubai Design and Fashion Council (DDFC) has announced its mandate and upcoming initiatives for the coming year at its inaugural community event attended by key design and fashion industry experts and journalists from across the world.

Aiming to ‘make Dubai the emerging design capital of the world’, the council would continue to work towards its goal to ‘create global opportunity and invigorate a world-class design community in Dubai’.

Attended by the DDFC CEO Nez Gebreel, Cyril Zammit (Fair Director for Design Days Dubai), Zayan Ghandour (Lebanese designer and owner of Sauce boutiques) and the French fashion talent Roland Mouret, the event conducted presentations and discussions on the potential, benefits and challenges of the Dubai’s design industry.

Addressing the event, Gebreel says, “The establishment of the Dubai Design and Fashion Council signals a strong commitment by the country’s leadership towards making Dubai the emerging design capital of the world. There is a tremendous amount of creativity and positive energy in the region’s industry and we are here to help support and mentor these upcoming designers to realise their potential and achieve their dreams.”

“We are here to create global opportunity and invigorate a world-class design community in Dubai. We want to establish a framework for the industry, one that will position Dubai as an international hub for design, offering excellent infrastructure for brands to make the most of the significant consumer base here. This is our promise, and we will do everything in our power to make it happen,” he adds.

Drawing from his own experience of establishing a brand and gaining international recognition, the celebrity-favoured designer Roland Mouret talked about the importance of having a solid business case and gave tips on how to thrive in the design industry.

“I am delighted to be here in Dubai at the first event held by the Dubai Design and Fashion Council. For designers such as myself, Dubai is a key market due to the vast number of consumers and their significant spending power, therefore the Council’s presence is vital. It has been really interesting to meet the next generation of designers in Dubai and hear their plans on how to achieve their dreams,” stated the 53-year-old Mouret.

“I was in their position once and I feel a sense of responsibility to pass on my knowledge and any help I can provide, to those looking to follow a career in design. It is a challenging industry, you need thick skin and a solid business model, as well as talent and creativity in design itself,” he explains.

“What Dubai, and the Council are aiming to achieve in cultivating and nurturing their design industry is exciting and ambitious but definitely achievable. Design is about organic growth, it is about following your emotions and being inspired every day,” opines the French fashion designer.

Following a decree announced by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai and Deputy Prime Minister of the UAE, last year, the DDFC was established to raise the profile of the Emirate as a regional and global destination for design and fashion.Read more at:long prom dresses

Veteran actress Sadhana on the mend after emergency surgery

While veteran actor Dilip Kumar was discharged from the hospital on Thursday and is currently recovering from bronchopneumonia, yesteryear actress and heartthrob, Sadhana Shivdasani is reportedly also on the road to recovery after a recent emergency surgery. The actress, famous for her legendary fringe, underwent a surgery on Wednesday due to her deteriorating health and a bleeding oral lesion, and could soon be discharged, said her doctor.

Better known by just her first name, Sadhana is currently recuperating at the Asian Institute of Oncology (AIO), a unit of K J Somaiya hospital, Chunabhatti. The surgical oncologist, Dr Deepak Parekh said that the actress is now in a stable condition and will be discharged in a day or two.

The 74-year-old was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, due to bleeding in her mouth. “Her situation was critical as she had a bleeding oral lesion. Due to her deteriorating health we had to perform the surgery immediately. The operation was successful and she is responding to the medicines. She will be discharged in a couple of days,” said Dr Parekh of the nine-hour procedure. The lesion tissues will be sent for a biopsy at the AIO centre to determine if they are cancerous, based on which a line of treatment will be determined, confirmed the doctor.

Sadhana’s family, however, has refrained from making any statement on her health, calling it a ‘confidential family matter’. Sources confirmed that Sadhana’s niece, Geeta and actor Aftab Shivdasani are attending to her needs and the medical expenses.

The actress was popular in the 1960s and early 1970s, and is remembered for films such as Mere Mehboob, Mera Saaya and Waqt. However, over the past few months, Sadhana had reportedly become a recluse of sorts, due to her failing health. One of the last events she attended was a Shaina NC fashion show in May, when she had graced the ramp alongside actor Ranbir Kapoor.Read more at:sexy prom dresses
