Does Being Overweight Damage Your Brain?

Sorry for the over the top headline, but the answer to the question appears to be yes…and please read this whole post, there is something really good at the end.

How Being Overweight Affects The Brain

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh scanned the brains of 94 people over the age of 70. They were looking to see the differences in the brains of people who were of normal weight (BMI under 25), overweight (BMI 25-30), and obese (BMI over 30).

If you are 5 foot 10 and you weigh 220, you have a BMI of 31.6 and would be considered obese. If you are 5 foot 10 and weigh 180, your BMI is 25.8 and you would be considered overweight for purposes of the study. There are certain athletes with lot of muscle mass that make the BMI inaccurate, but for the rest of us it is a valid measurement.

The Scary Results

It turns out that Obese people have 8% less brain tissue than people of normal...continue reading »

New Research on the Placebo Effect

You have probably heard about the Placebo effect. We know new drugs are measured against the placebo effect because a good percentage of people get better just by taking sugar pills.

This is obviously power of the mind stuff, but until recently scientists had never been able to actually "see" the placebo effect actually working in the brain.

Thanks to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (f MRI) and PET scans...continue reading »

You Will Never Look at Pain the Same Way Again

A new study, published in the November 2008 issue of the journal Current Biology* just blew my mind.

Researchers found that just by changing the way subjects looked at an achy limb, they could affect the degree of pain experienced AND the swelling of the limb.

This is pretty crazy stuff, but is just more evidence of the mind/body...continue reading »

Brain Juice!

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know I am a big-time "brain performance" guy. This is probably why I got into the hypnosis publishing area, as I'm always looking for ways to achieve peak performance. In my opinion, the brain is the key.

I've written about neurofeedback, brain entrainment, brain software, and neuro-plasticity, but I've never written about supplements that improve your brain's performance.

There is a reason, and it's this:

Until recently, I just have not been able to find a formula that is both affordable...continue reading »

The Stock Market, the "Bail Out", and the crazy political situation might be causing you some stress.

A New Reason Why It is Harder NOT to Overeat as We Age

If it wasn't hard enough already, new research out of Monash University and now published in Nature demonstrates that as we age key appetite control cells in the human brain degenerate over time, causing increased hunger!

We aren't talking about REALLY OLD here, according to Dr. Zane Andrews, a neuroendocrinologist at Monash...continue reading »
