Losing weight at 40: three tips to avoid accumulating fat

It has already been heard a thousand times to accumulate grease it increases the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, and that can also have metabolic consequences. The good news is that there are three things you can do to lose weight and, incidentally, avoid regaining the lost pounds.

Not celebrating progress by toasting with alcohol

If you are looking for a figure, 300 calories may be what you need. According to a study from Duke University, eliminating that energy from your usual daily intake significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular problems and high blood pressure, as well as developing insulin resistance and obesity.

Specialists propose to start by first eliminating the things that should not be because they have a high energy content and provide little or no nutrients. And the first to fall is alcohol.

“A gram of alcohol has 7.5 calories, that is, almost as much energy as a gram of fat, which gives 9 calories, compared to the 4 that we find for each gram of carbohydrate and protein, respectively,” said the expert and completed in “its journey practically ends in the liver and there it becomes fat,” he sums up.

The sugar chapter

The second element to decrease is sugar, which nutritionally does not contribute anything to the body beyond energy. “In addition, it will trigger the insulin for its metabolism and, probably, it ends up being transformed into fat,” says the dietitian-nutritionist. The ultra-processed must also be crossed off the shopping list too rich in sugar and fat.

Walk one hour a day or train 60 minutes a week at full capacity

If to maintain a weight healthy you have to stop the loss of muscle mass, it is obvious that exercising that builds muscles (apart from burning fat) will help. It is the second objective of the plan, and the strategy is to divide the training between cardio and strength. Nothing that has not already been said.

If you haven’t been in a gym for years, the physiotherapist and personal trainer Adrián Prieto is clear: “You have to go out for a walk every day and get to 10,000 steps, and if they fall short, increase the duration to one daily hour at a rate of between 115 and 140 beats per minute ”.



Regarding strength training, Prieto advises starting with those that use different joints and involve the use of many different muscles to gain muscle mass. for 45 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week.

The trainer, who usually works with middle-aged people, points out that squats are especially useful, with three sets of between 12 and 15 repetitions – or an amount such that, if two more were done, he would not be able to move -, and leaving a one minute break between them.

He also recommends the planks: “The ideal is to do one minute and rest for more than 40 seconds,” says Prieto, “and repeat the exercise six or seven times.” In addition, it recommends that they be in front of the mirror “to control that we do not sink and we keep our back straight.

Extra: Looking at the cell phone at night also makes you fat

The third objective that must be taken into account to lose the kilos that age has put on is rest. not only food helps you gain weight.

As people get older, the ability to sleep soundly is lost, leading to more sleeplessness at night.

This also affects weight, as it was shown that short sleep duration is also associated with a reduction in leptin (a hormone that inhibits the desire to eat) and an increase in ghrelin (another hormone that awakens the sensation of appetite). That makes you hungrier the next day, and you tend to eat more than you need.

Look at the cell phone before sleeping


Israel is the first in the world to re-quarantine due to coronavirus

Israel re-introduced quarantine due to coronavirus for at least three weeks, report RIA Novosti.

“A new nationwide quarantine has come into force in Israel due to the coronavirus. The restrictions are imposed for three weeks with the possibility of extension. They will operate during the autumn Jewish holidays, ”the message says. People are allowed to move away from home no more than a kilometer, but only in some cases – to work, to buy food, medicine and essential goods, to help people in difficult situations, to funerals, circumcisions, to court, to the Knesset and donor item, as well as at protests.

In addition, it is allowed to participate in religious ceremonies and rituals, to play sports with the whole family, if this does not require a trip by transport. Police officers will monitor compliance with the quarantine. According to the agency, the fine for not wearing a mask in Israel is 500 shekels (about 11,000 rubles), for exceeding the permissible number of people in one place and for leaving home for more than a kilometer – 1,000 shekels.

Israel became the first country to re-declare a nationwide quarantine, the agency said. The restrictions were lifted in May, when the incidence of coronavirus decreased to single cases per day. Since June, the number of new cases of the disease began to rise and by mid-September reached almost 6,000 per day.


Top US infectious disease specialist named three best ways to boost immunity

Anthony Fauci, the top US infectious disease specialist, gave three tips to help keep your immune system strong. About it writes Business Insider.

Take vitamins C and D

Anthony Fauci advises adding vitamins C and D to the diet: “There is strong evidence that low vitamin D levels in the body increase the risk of contracting coronavirus.” Vitamin D not only successfully fights inflammatory processes in the body, but also helps it to strengthen bones by absorbing calcium more easily, the doctor said.

Vitamin C, in turn, helps the body absorb iron. Fauci recommends taking 1,000 mg of vitamin C per day, but for most people this is a fairly high dose. Especially for those who eat fruits and vegetables every day. Experts from Harvard Medical School believe that taking 100 mg of the vitamin is sufficient. The maximum dosage is 2 thousand mg per day.

You can get the right amount of vitamins by eating a cup of strawberries, a few handfuls of raw green bell peppers, or 2 cups of stewed cabbage, Fauci said.

Get enough sleep

The duration of sleep varies from person to person, but for most people it is 7-8 hours, the doctor said.

Avoid stress

Among the best (and easiest) ways to deal with stress are regular exercise, meditation, breathing practices, a hot bath, massage, listening to music, time with a loved one or dog, Fauci explained.

“Leading a healthy lifestyle is healthier than taking all kinds of supplements,” he added.


BBVA launches to place bonds for 2,000 million dollars | Markets

The first of September was Sabadell, after was Abertis through HIT, its French subsidiary that owns Sanef, and on Thursday the intrepid was BBVA. The bank started the placement of two dollar issues, three and five years of senior debt.

It is the first operation of this type of instrument in dollars since October 2015 and the third issuance registered with the SEC. The joint planned size amounted to 2 billion dollars (about 1.7 billion euros).

The two tranches of the issue have maturities in September 2023, for 1.2 billion dollars, and September 2025 (800 million dollars), respectively, and an exit price of the United States Treasury rate plus 100 basis points (the three-year) and the US Treasury rate plus 125 basis points (five-year).

The underwriters, in addition to the bank chaired by Carlos Torres, were JP Morgan, Bank of America, BBVA, Credit Agricole, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo.

The issue is registered with the US markets supervisor, the SEC. “This is the third time that BBVA has launched an issue with this format (…) that allows the participation of investors from the United States and the rest of the world,” the entity said in a note.


PSG announces “three new positive cases” for coronavirus in its workforce

Paris Saint-Germain announced Thursday evening that “three new positive cases” for the new coronavirus had been detected within its workforce, bringing the number of cases identified among the champions of France to six.

“The latest SarsCoV2 PCR tests carried out within the Paris Saint-Germain workforce confirm the result of three new positive cases,” the club said on Twitter, information which increases the uncertainty around the maintenance of Lens-PSG on September 10 in Ligue 1.

Captain Marquinhos in particular was infected and is one of the three new cases declared, says the sports daily L’Equipe.

His name is added to the three already communicated: Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes according to information from L’Equipe, confirmed to AFP by a source in the sports entourage of the players who requires anonymity because of the secrecy medical.

All these players were present in Ibiza during the leave granted by PSG after the Champions League final lost against Bayern Munich.

Players who spent their holidays away from the Spanish island were tested on Thursday, later than the others.


As in Star Wars: they find a system where the planets would have two or three suns

“The most important result of our study is that we can identify the cause of the misalignments and link it to the effect of ‘tear of the disk’ that theorists proposed eight years ago, but that until now had not been observed”, pointed out in dialogue with Ambit the leader of the investigation.

Our Solar System is an almost perfect disk, with all the planets orbiting in the same plane. But this is not the case GW Orionis, a system located just over 1,300 light-years away that astronomers identify as the first direct evidence that clusters of stars can break up their planet-forming disk.

The animation allows you to see the three stars in the center of GW Orionis, as well as its warped disk and the inclined ring that separated from it.

Strange planets like the ones in the movies. “We have not yet been able to observe a planet in the system. However, it houses a disk that could potentially form planets in very exotic orbits. Do you remember the planet Tatooine in Star Wars, which orbited two stars? Any planet around GW Orionis would also orbit two, or even 3 stars “, exemplifies Kraus, referring to the desert world with two suns and ravaged by sandstorms where Anakin and Luke Skywalker grew up.

The international team, which included researchers from the UK, Belgium, France, the US and Chile, combined observations made over 11 years with telescopes operated by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in the trans-Andean city of Atacama with computer simulations.

With the data, it was possible to reconstruct the orbits of the stars and the shape of the disk in 3D.

And then they were able, for the first time, to clearly link the observed misalignments in the orbits of the three stars with the theoretical “disk tear effect”, which suggests that this conflict in the gravitational attraction of the different planes, or a newly formed planet, can deform and break its discs.

The novelty is just a lock through which to look at new phenomena. “The ring is home to a quantity of dust of around 30 Earth masses, which is probably enough for planet formation to occur there.”Kraus concluded.

Given that more than half of the stars in the sky are born with one or more partners, this raises a promising prospect: there could be an unknown population of exoplanets that orbit their stars in very steep and distant orbits.
