  • "Apple shape" link to risk of kidney disease

    "Apple shape" link to greater chance of kidney disease

    Research suggests that carrying excess weight around the middle can be linked to a greater risk of  kidney disease.

    It has been common knowledge that being "apple shaped" instead of "pear shaped" adds to risks of cardiovascular issues and problems.

    Studies in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology have found traces of kidney issues even in otherwise healthy apple-shaped people.

    UK experts state people should look after their kidney health.

    Research has shown that having a higher waist-to-hip ratio -(as seen in some apple-shaped people) is connected with lower kidney capability, lower kidney blood flow and higher blood pressure in the kidneys.

    This is even shown in those who were otherwise healthy.

    It is important to take ensure we look after out kidneys and take regular exercise.

  • When is the best time to burn fat?

    When is the best time to burn fat?

    Research suggests doing cardio in the morning on an empty stomach  if you’re looking to shed some weight.

    Since your body has not eaten since dinner, the carbohydrates in your muscles and liver will be depleted so your body has to dig into your fat  stores for energy.

    It is also suggested that  lean people should eat easily digested carbs before morning workouts, such as oatmeal and fruit—or risk losing lean muscle mass.
