Previous research has shown that the Mediterranean Diet reduced the risk of cancer, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, problems with processing glucose that may lead to diabetes, coronary heart disease and overall death.

Eating raw walnuts alongside your high-fat meal may help protect arteries from short-term damage. Olive oil did not offer the same benefits as walnuts did for the vascular structure. Researchers from the University of Barcelona’s Hospital Clínico first reported this study in the Oct. 17, 2006 edition of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

"People would get the wrong message if they think that they can continue eating unhealthy fats provided they add walnuts to their meals," said Emilio Ros, MD, PhD, director of the Lipid Clinic at Hospital Clínico in Barcelona, Spain, the primary location where the study was completed. "Instead, they should consider making walnuts part of a healthy diet that limits saturated fats.

British researchers say that consumption of black tea can reduce stress hormones in the body and may lower the risk of heart attack. Not only were tea drinkers able to unwind quicker, they also had lower levels of the hormone cortisol after a stressful event.

The study involved 75 young male tea drinkers who were given either a tea or a placebo. All of the participants gave up other forms of caffeinated beverages including soft drinks and coffee. The first group was given a fruit-flavored caffeinated tea mixture made up of the constituents of an average cup of black tea, and the other group was given a caffeinated placebo identical in taste. All drinks were tea colored, but were designed to mask some of the normal sensory cues associated with tea drinking (such as smell, taste and familiarity of the brew).

We are going to examine the most common challenge bodybuilders face which is nutrition.

Unfortunately there is so much confusion about what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat and on and on that it is almost impossible to sort out what to do. Also eating to grow is very different the eating to get shredded so the key point to remember is that your diet needs to evolve with your physique.

Consistency and self-discipline on your eating is two biggest keys to long term success on whatever eating program that you are following. Bodybuilders who are successful always plan ahead and have meals prepared well in advance. If you don't plan out your meals and have them with you at all times you will invariably fail in giving yourself the best possible gains. Hoping that restaurants, or friends or relatives will be serving "bodybuilding food" is unrealistic and leads to frustration as well as no progress. Don't be one of those people who do not prepare their meals in advance.

Researchers in Japan say that the naturally occurring molecule, nesfatin-1, caused rats to eat significantly less food than untreated rats. This finding could lead to a treatment for human obesity.

The researchers discovered the molecule after analyzing 596 genes. Of these genes, nine were expressed in both the brain and fat tissue of mammals. The protein NUCB2 (later dubbed nesfatin-1) is one of those molecules. It is secreted by the hypothalamus, which regulates appetite, and is now believed to play a role in appetite.
