Mediacorp actress Tay Ying on gaining weight for a new role and dealing with fat-shaming comments

The actress is also someone who’s very comfortable in her own skin. “If the people around me still love me despite my body changing, then why should I feel insecure?” she replied confidently.  “And I’m doing this for a greater purpose! There’s something that I’m working towards and I’d think that my loved ones are very supportive so I shouldn’t worry too much,” she gushed.  That said, Tay Ying’s really looking forward to start doing cardio again.  “I do love cardio a lot, it helps me with my mental health. So I know when I’m done filming, cardio can help me lose weight too. It can also help me unwind and get back to being myself because right now, I’m not me. I’m the character,” she told us.  Netizens, on the other hand, aren’t thinking as positively as Tay Ying. When asked if she’s had to deal with fat-shaming comments, the actress said: “We were not supposed to talk about [the drama] yet so there were people commenting that I’ve gained weight, or the nastier …

Why eating within limited hours may help with weight loss

Why eating within limited hours may help with weight loss

A number of studies have suggested that eating only during a limited window of time can help some people lose weight. But it’s unclear why: Does the strategy just help people eat less, or is there something beneficial about keeping meals within a shorter time frame? New research falls in the former camp, suggesting that the amount of calories people consume matters more than the timing.  A small, randomized trial at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine — the results of which were published Friday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine — found that when researchers controlled the number of calories people consumed, both time-restricted and regular eating schedules resulted in similar degrees of weight loss.  “It makes us think that people who benefit from time-restricted eating — meaning they lose weight — it’s probably from them eating fewer calories because their time window’s shorter and not something else,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Nisa Maruthur, an associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University. Time-restricted eating regimens vary, and some are similar …

It’s a different time so I don’t feel ashamed saying that. I couldn’t lose the baby weight,” she said on her misSPELLING podcast on Tuesday.  © Getty ImagesTori weighed 160lbs after giving birth to son Beau Despite her good genes from her “thin” parents and being “really fortunate” to quickly lose weight after the birth of her previous four children, Tori struggled to regain her pre-pregnancy physique.  Even intermittent fasting and exercise – which Tori claimed she never does – didn’t help her lose weight.  “My whole life I didn’t diet,” she said. “I was born with really good genes.

Which is a better long-term strategy for weight loss?

Which is a better long-term strategy for weight loss?

The study utilized a Markov cohort model to evaluate the outcomes of a theoretical group of patients within the U.S. healthcare system. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) A recent study published in JAMA Network Open reveals that Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG), a non-surgical weight loss procedure, proves to be more economically advantageous over a five-year period compared to using semaglutide, the active component in Ozempic, Wegovy, and similar weight loss medications. ESG functions by reducing the stomach’s size through a minimally invasive procedure. This involves the insertion of a suturing device down the throat and into the stomach, where it folds and sutures the stomach’s sides. It’s important to note that ESG differs from gastric sleeve surgery, which involves the removal of a significant portion of the stomach. Conducted from September 1, 2022, to May 31, 2023, the study utilized a Markov cohort model to evaluate the outcomes of a theoretical group of patients within the U.S. healthcare system. These patients had a body mass index (BMI) falling within the range of 35 to 39.9, placing them …

New drug substantially reduces both weight and cholesterol levels, study finds

New drug substantially reduces both weight and cholesterol levels, study finds

Scientists have achieved significant weight loss in obese mice by introducing medication directly into the liver via a novel nanogel carrier. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) In a groundbreaking discovery, scientists have achieved significant weight loss in obese mice by introducing medication directly into the liver via a novel nanogel carrier. This innovative approach circumvents the issues associated with systemic drug administration, markedly reducing potential side effects. The significance of this method becomes apparent when considering the broader picture. A staggering one hundred million Americans suffer from obesity and related cardiometabolic disorders, comments S. Thai Thayumanavan, a renowned biomedical engineer and chemist from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. “We became pretty excited about this work,” he reveals. The brilliance of this approach is encapsulated, quite literally, in the nanogel. These minuscule carriers are loaded with a synthetic thyroid hormone drug termed a thyromimetic. Essential for liver metabolism, thyroid hormones can be ineffective when taken systemically and carry adverse side effects. A scanning electron micrograph of a section through a vein in the liver, showing red blood cells …
