And Now for some news ….
Meal Timing and Frequency
Eating patterns are increasingly varied. Typical breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals are difficult to distinguish because skipping meals and snacking have become more prevalent.
Such eating styles can have various effects on cardiometabolic health markers, namely obesity, lipid profile, insulin resistance, and blood pressure.
In this statement, published in the journal Circulation, the Authors review the cardiometabolic health effects of specific eating patterns: skipping breakfast, intermittent fasting, meal frequency (number of daily eating occasions), and timing of eating occasions.
Furthermore, the authors propose definitions for meals, snacks, and eating occasions for use in research.
Finally, data suggest that irregular eating patterns appear less favorable for achieving a healthy cardiometabolic profile. Intentional eating with mindful attention to the timing and frequency of eating occasions could lead to healthier lifestyle and cardiometabolic risk factor management.
As always, discuss all Nutritional Recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Progression of Core Stability Exercises Based on the Extent of Muscle Activity
The aim of a cross-sectional study published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation was to evaluate a variety of isometric plank exercises.
Twenty university students performed the following eight different variants of plank exercises in random order and with 1-min rest intervals: stable prone plank, suspended prone plank, stable roll-out plank, suspended roll-out plank, unilateral stable prone plank, unilateral suspended prone plank, stable lateral plank, and suspended lateral plank.
Surface electromyography signals were recorded for the upper rectus abdominis, lower rectus abdominis, external oblique, lumbar erector spinae, and normalized to the maximum voluntary isometric contraction.
The study concluded that muscle activity could be progressed using the different exercises. Although suspended prone plank and the suspended roll-out plank were most efficient for the abdominal muscles, suspended and stable lateral planks were most efficient for the lumbar muscles.
As always, discuss all Exercise Recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.
