To identify studies regarding weight maintenance, with an emphasis on dietary interventions, a complete search of articles was carried out by using PubMed and SCOPUS. The studies were restricted to those in English. The key words included ‘overweight’, ‘obesity’, ‘weight maintenance’, ‘weight regain’, and ‘diet therapy’. Articles from 1974 to 2013 were included. We found 75 articles. We excluded studies published only as abstracts and those involving behavioral therapy or exercise per se. Finally we evaluated 26 studies.

I’ve been natural for a few years, however, I’m having a hard time with it. First of all, I was never given the gift of doing hair lol. When I was younger, combing and brushing my hair was all I did so I wouldn’t know how to do any protective styles. Also, sadly, I’m still trying to develop a routine for my hair (trying to find the right products, hairstyles etc.) I NEED HELP!!!!
Hello how are you?, my brother and I are both trying to go natural but me and him having problems. His hair is getting bald spots and he suffering from trying to have it grow. I had cut my hair a while ago and my top is long and my back is short. Ppl believe it won’t grow back at all but I don’t believe that. I use to think that having natural hair was not cool but now I want my hair to be longer and fuller. We have dry hair and it’s dull looking and lifeless. I understand what this article is saying but idk where to start for some reason because I process things differently. We heard that getting organic, unrefined, and cold pressed products are better. Is that true? How can I get my hair long and fuller like some natural ladies online? I cry because I don’t regret cutting my hair but I regret not keeping it as well. What products should my brother and I use? What is the best way to take care of our hair since it’s dull, lifeless, and dry. Please help me. :(

In another study, obese adults were assigned to Medifast's meal replacement (low fat, low GI, with a balanced ratio of CHO/Pro) (MD) or a self-selected, isocaloric, food-based meal plan for weight loss and weight maintenance. The amount of weight regain was more in the MD group, but the percentage of participants who kept up their weight in this group was more than in the other group.[15]
When performing your energy system training (cardio training), always try to push the intensity of your work intervals. If using a rate of perceived exertion scale to monitor intensity, your work intervals should fall between 7 and 8.5 (i.e., very hard to very, very hard) during your session. Perform as many of your work intervals at the higher end of the RPE range for fastest and best results. (Also try HIIT training, which comes with tons of benefits.)

Researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health conducted a massive study of the impact of health habits on life expectancy, using data from the well-known Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (HPFS). This means that they had data on a huge number of people over a very long period of time. The NHS included over 78,000 women and followed them from 1980 to 2014. The HPFS included over 40,000 men and followed them from 1986 to 2014. This is over 120,000 participants, 34 years of data for women, and 28 years of data for men.

Thank you for your comment! Depending on the look you are going for, will greatly determine if you want to add a water base product or an oil base product to your hair. When my hair is in a wash & go type style, I can add water based products. However, when I am wearing a stretched style and I do not want shrinkage, I will use an oil based product, staying clear of wetness.
Thirteen year old Lexi Proctor wrote a book that encouraged self-love among young girls, Curly Girls Love Your Curls. After seeing the impact of that book, Lexi and her mother Monica were inspired to create a line of hair care products for all the Curlanistas of the world. With Lexi’s background as a STEM student, they took their homemade concoctions and developed a hair care line to help girls’ curls pop non-stop!
It has been shown that micronutrient dietary supplement consumption results in a lower body weight and resting metabolic rate in men and lower hunger level in females,[51] but there are no sufficient studies to assess their roles in preventing weight regain after weight loss. Only the Nachtigal cohort study revealed that long-term use of vitamins B6 and B12, and chromium were significantly associated with lower weight gain.[52]
With all the creams, potions, and oils we use to style and maintain our hair, there's bound to be some product buildup — and this micro-exfoliating shampoo (which works on all hair types,) is here to nip it in the bud. Sulfate-free and infused with both charcoal and coconut oil, think of it almost like a juice cleanse for the scalp: The charcoal draws out impurities from the scalp and hair follicles, vegetable-derived micro-exfoliators remove dead skin cells and buildup, and soothing peppermint and spearmint oils give your scalp a nice cooling treat.
Do your hair feel brittle? I personally had to limit(almost eliminate) the amount of protein I use on my hair. This made a drastic difference for my hair. I use a leave in conditioner, then a curling cream, after that I will apply a oil if necessary. Oils that work great for me are Jojoba, sweet almond, and avocado. I cant use too much coconut oil, olive oil or hair milk on my hair.

Weight loss starts with the brain, not the belly,” says psychotherapist Doris Wild Helmering, MSW, coauthor of Think Thin, Be Thin. For many people, achieving a healthy weight is possible only once certain mental and emotional issues have been addressed. Why? Because many of us overeat or avoid exercise for reasons we don’t entirely understand — or that we feel powerless to control.
The great ability of a twa is that the style within itself is a protective style. The hairs are tightly together packed down and the hair is not brushing the shoulders. So in essence, a TWA is a protective style within itself. The idea is to be sure to protect your hair at night and keep it moisturized and supple and using protein when you need to. You didn’t mention protein. How are you incorporating protein into your regimen.

Another explanation is curl pattern and texture. I personally have at least 3 that I can identify… lol My front is straight on the ends and the longer it goes, the straighter it gets. I cut a few inches about 3 years ago because I thought it was heat damaged, but it wasn’t. It is still strand in the front. I just accept the straightness and work with it. Now my crown area has a coarser texture, the most shrinkage and the tightest curls.

The good news is, you don't have to change everything at the same time. In fact, the trick to healthy living is making small changes—taking more steps each day, adding fruit to your cereal, having an extra glass of water, or saying no to that second helping of buttery mashed potatoes. One thing you can do right now to make your lifestyle healthier is to move more.
Hair breakage is the most common cause of hair loss. Tight hairstyles (ex. tight ponytails and braids) can break off the hair and damage the hair follicle. If your hair constantly breaks you will need to identify exactly what’s causing the breakage and eliminate the culprit to prevent further breakage. The most common causes of breakage are heat, harsh chemicals, tight hairstyles and rough treatment.

Eighteen years ago, I was arrested by seven undercover cops, handcuffed and dragged out of my own salon in Texas. I was guilty of the "crime" of braiding hair without a cosmetology license. Today, I'm free. U.S. Judge Sam Sparks ruled that Texas Braiding Laws were unconstitutional. This fight for the right to teach the next generation braiding is today's modern day civil rights movement!
