Telling an obese person simply to eat less rarely succeeds. Is it because they are weak-willed individuals or is there something more complex going on?
The European Society of Cardiology estimates a 50 percent reduction of coronary events if you can stabilize soft, vulnerable plaques.
Every now and then it’s worth going back over the published literature to see how the Zone diet stacks up in various areas of nutritional research.

The fastest and most popular (although costly) way to lose fat is to simply suck it out of the body.

One of the best ways to reduce cellular inflammation in the fat cells is by increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids.
