Eating a flour made from passionfruit peel may stop mice from becoming fat and counteract the effects of a bad diet, a study has suggested. Mice gorged on fatty foods for 10 weeks in a laboratory. However, some were also fed the grounded down skin of the exotic fruit. Results showed rodents given the flour weighed 14 per cent less at the end of the experiment. They also had 22 per cent less body fat. The researchers in Brazil said the peel is an untapped source of fibre, which helps with weight loss in humans. The nutrient is proven to limit how much fat and sugar is absorbed from food and suppresses appetite. But the mice fed the flour did not eat less.

Almost everyone, it seems, is intermittently fasting. Celebrities, my boss, my friend's boyfriend, my mother. Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey, only eats once a day. He doesn't have breakfast or lunch, but consumes his sole meal between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. While Dorsey's approach is extreme (and not recommended), intermittent fasting is widely promoted, with a plethora of book titles that promise it'll "supercharge energy," "optimize weight," "activate stem cells" and "slow aging." There's also intermittent fasting apps that track the fasting window and weight loss. It is, after all, part of a booming global diet industry worth $189 billion (€175,45 billion).

The 'secure unit' on the ninth floor of the hospital's east ward contains reinforced steel doors and gates, better resembles a prison, and is used for maximum security prisoners in need of medical attention. While the public rooms just metres away have views over … [Read more...] about Cereal killer: Notorious backpacker murderer Ivan Milat is being offered Weetbix and toast in his cell-like hospital ward next door to everyday Australians as he’s treated for effects of extreme weight loss
