Is strength training associated with mortality benefits? A 15year cohort study of US older adults. - PubMed - NCBI
Older adults who reported guideline-concordant ST had 46% lower odds of all-cause mortality than those who did not

The association between ST and death remained after adjustment for past medical history and health behaviors.

Insufficient sleep undermines dietary efforts to reduce adiposity. - PubMed - NCBI
"Sleep curtailment decreased the proportion of weight lost as fat by 55% (1.4 vs. 0.6 kg with 8.5 vs. 5.5 hours of sleep opportunity, respectively; P = 0.043) and increased the loss of fat-free body mass by 60% (1.5 vs. 2.4 kg; P = 0.002)"

Corroborated by https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29438540 (paywalled, no numbers in the abstract)

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26352863 showed that in post-menopausal women, melatonin supplementation correlated with fat loss of ~7lbs over a year.

Carbs vs. fat research update
No date, no links to studies, no comments section.

"if you’re still stuck in the high carb bodybuilding dogma, this may open your eyes"

Very Low Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet (5% of calories from carbs) led to higher increases in lean body mass than a traditional western diet, for college-aged men doing resistance training. Increased testosterone too, along with HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.
-- https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4271639/

Just "low" carb diets reduce testosterone - https://www.testofuel.com/tf/does-a-ketogenic-diet-affect-testosterone-levels/

So don't stay in the gray area of ~30% of calories from carbs.

Living like a caveman won't make you thin—but it might make you healthy
Hadza men and women walk 4-7 miles a day, hunting wild game, harvesting honey, digging for tubers, picking berries, or fetching water and firewood.

"The Hadza get more activity in a day than the standard American gets in a week

they enjoy superb health. Obesity is rare. Heart disease and diabetes are almost unheard of. Their waistlines don't expand, nor do their blood pressures creep up with age. Adults often live into their 60s, 70s, even 80s, without benefit of statins or urgent care centers.

the Hadza don't burn more calories than average adults in the U.S. and other industrialized countries. Hadza men burn about 2,500 calories a day. For Hadza women it's 1,900 calories.

human body seems to adjust to physical activity by saving calories on other physiological processes to keep total energy expenditure in check.

"exercise is actually a crappy tool for weight loss,"

Contrary to the Paleo diet evangelists, hunter-gatherers eat a lot of starchy, sugary, carbohydrate-rich foods: tubers, honey, and even grains," studies of more than 250 hunter-gatherer populations worldwide suggest they have excellent metabolic health while eating a wide-ranging menu of meat, plants and other foods. Our ancestors, too, had diverse diets depending on the season, climate and where they lived.

"There's a ton of variability," Pontzer said.

Just go easy on the portion size.

Low-carb diets cause people to burn more calories | EurekAlert! Science News
Not all calories are the same.

From another article:

“This feeding study, as the longest and largest to date, provides support for the carbohydrate-insulin model and makes a credible case that all calories are not metabolically alike,” said Harvard professor and endocrinologist at Boston Children’s Hospital David Ludwig, one of the authors of the new paper. “These findings raise the possibility that a focus on carbohydrate restriction may work better for long-term weight loss maintenance than calorie restriction.”

The study, which cost $12 million to complete, found that just calorie-counting doesn’t necessarily mean that you will automatically lose weight.

The Silicon Valley execs who don't eat for days: 'It's not dieting, it's biohacking' | Life and style | The Guardian
Superficial coverage of the fasting fad in Silicon Valley. Nothing about exercise or how to make it safe. See https://wefa.st/ for the "meat".

[[Over the last 8 months, Phil Libin, the former CEO of Evernote has [fasted for 2 to 8] days. He’s lost almost 90lbs and describes getting into fasting as “transformative”.

“There’s a mild euphoria. I’m in a much better mood, my focus is better, and there’s a constant supply of energy. I just feel a lot healthier.”

biohacking and nootropics company HVMN (pronounced “human”)

“Ketones are a super-fuel for the brain,” said Woo. “So a lot of the subjective benefits to fasting, including mental clarity, are down to the rise in ketones in the system.”

“The first day I felt so hungry I was going to die. The second day I was starving. But I woke up on the third day feeling better than I had in 20 years,”

Furthermore, no one makes money when people don’t eat.

“In this society usually things that work against every entrenched economic interest are hard to take off.”]]

Dim Light at Night Disrupts Molecular Circadian Rhythms and Increases Body WeightJournal of Biological Rhythms - Laura K. Fonken, Taryn G. Aubrecht, O. Hecmarie Meléndez-Fernández, Zachary M. Weil, Randy J. Nelson, 2013
exposure to ecologically relevant levels of dim (5 lux) light at night altered core circadian clock rhythms in the hypothalamus at both the gene and protein level

Changes in the circadian clock were associated with temporal alterations in feeding behavior and increased weight gain. These results are significant because they provide evidence that mild changes in environmental lighting can alter circadian and metabolic function.

arielf/weight-loss: Machine Learning meets ketosis: how to effectively lose weight
Guy tracked daily weight, food consumption highlights, some exercise, and sleep, then ran a machine learning process on the data (unclear how many days - https://github.com/arielf/weight-loss/issues/23).

[[Despite the noisy & insufficient data, and the inaccuracies in weighting, the machine-learning experiments made 4 facts obvious, pretty early:

* Sleeping longer consistently appeared as the #1 factor in losing weight.
* Lack of sleep did the opposite: too little sleep lead to weight gains.
* Carbs made me gain weight. The worst were high-starch and sugary foods.
* Fatty and oily foods did the opposite: they were positively correlated with weight-loss.

## Further progress

* Extending the fasting time was one major accelerator of weight-loss rate: 14-16 hours of fasting each day by skipping breakfast and stopping eating earlier in the evening
* The 2nd accelerator was loading up on fat in order to feel full.
* The 3rd accelerator was understanding the concepts of Glycemic index and Glycemic Load, and shifting whatever I chose to eat towards lower Glycemic loads.

I started doubting anyone who told me I need to reduce fat. I run away if anyone now tells me "high cholesterol" in the diet is dangerous.

In a low-carb/high-fat (LCHF) regime, our night sleep (fasting time) becomes our friend. The fat-breaking agents keep working while we sleep, breaking-up the stored fat. This leads to weight-loss, and a healthier state.

And when we push even further, and cut carbs to really low levels, we may reach a new steady state, called ketosis, in which practically all our energy comes from fat, and that's when we really win big in the weight-loss battle.

The above is a very simplified, and hopefuly easy to digest, version of what some diet books try to explain in hundreds of pages.

## Bottom-line recipe:

* Longer fasting periods: This is the #1 contributor to weight-loss. sleep longer, stop eating as early as possible before going to sleep and start eating as late as possible after sleeping. Skip breakfast, after some time you won't feel hungry in the morning anymore.

* For the record, I'm not 100% sure excercise is absolutely essential to losing weight, but I believe it helps accelerate the process.

* Eat eggs. They are a wonderful combo of fat and protein with no carbs at all.

* High fat: Eat avocados, olive oil, mayo, coconut oil, nuts. I never worry about natural fat, I eat as much fat as I want. This is what makes it much easier to avoid carbs.

* Consume much less carbs and less frequently than before

* Avoid foods with high glycemic load. Have a sweet tooth? Eat an orange instead of drinking orange juice. The two have vastly different glycemic loads and this makes a huge difference. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycemic_load, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycemic_index

2014 summary of best fitness practices from The Guardian
Do: high intensity short workouts vs. low-intensity longer ones. Weight lifting is great. Bikram yoga = meh.

[[A study of 20,000 people in Denmark over years found that those who ran lived on average for six years longer than those who did not. And the biggest benefits came from running between one hour and two and a half hours a week, over two or three sessions, at a comfortable pace where you felt out of breath, but not too breathless.

O'Keefe thinks this could be because long periods of vigorous physical activity, over an hour or two, puts too much strain on heart muscle, causing it to stretch and tear, which – over years and decades – can lead to stiffening and scarring.

Indeed, one 2011 study found higher levels of fibrosis, or scarring, in the heart muscle of competitive endurance athletes aged 50 or over, compared to others of the same age.

lean people actually work harder when they swim than those overweight. people felt hungrier after swimming than after other forms of vigorous exercise

"I haven't seen anything that convinces me that practising yoga in a very hot room achieves anything above and beyond what yoga can," Easton says]]

Cooling palms enhances training during progressive resistive exercise
"Palm cooling from 35 degrees C to 20 degrees C temporarily overrides fatigue mechanism(s) during intense intermittent resistance exercise. The mechanisms for this ergogenic function remain unknown."

"Palm cooling was associated with increased exercise repetitions and exercise volume, possibly related to a delayed central fatigue or to a peripheral counter-irritation effect."

New Warning: Morning-After Pill Doesn't Work for Women Over 176 Pounds | Mother Jones
The weight, not the BMI, is, surprisingly, the problem.

[[The European manufacturer of an emergency contraceptive pill identical to Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill, will warn women that the drug is completely ineffective for women who weigh more than 176 pounds and begins to lose effectiveness in women who weigh more than 165 pounds.

Some of the most popular emergency contraceptive pills sold over the counter in the United States—including the one-pill drugs Plan B One-Step, Next Choice One Dose, and My Way, and a number of generic two-pill emergency contraceptives—have a dosage and chemical makeup identical to the European drug. Weight data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that, at 166 pounds, the average American woman is too heavy to use these pills effectively.

"A dose increase of levonorgestrel is not proven to be a solution for this problem"]]

What should I eat for weight loss? | Examine.com FAQ
Compilation of studies showing that "the macro composition (eg high carb vs low carb diets) is irrelevant in weight loss. Independent of the macro composition of your diet, a net negative energy balance (consuming less calories than your body needs) is alone responsible for weight loss."

Fad diets work because they reduce calories.

"It should also be noted that what time you eat food and how many times you eat is irrelevant in weight loss."

The macronutriet composition doesn't matter. It's calories in vs. calories out.

"Therefore, people on a low-carb diets lose weight because they naturally eat less and avoid the large binges caused by carbohydrate cravings. People on very-low-carb diets can also lose weight very quickly on the short term because the depletion of their glycogen stores leads to the excretion of bound water."

It’s NOT The Calories, Stupid: Weight Gain Depends On The Quality of What You Eat (Not How Much); Reply to Time Magazine | The Bulletproof Executive
"All three groups gained the same amount of body fat, which was about 50-90% of the excess weight. The low protein group gained almost all fat (90% of excess calories) while the other two groups gained about 50% fat and 50% muscle. The low protein group also lost about 750 grams of lean body mass. To put things another way, overfeeding on a moderate to high protein intake builds muscle and fat, while overfeeding on a low protein diet builds mostly fat. The low protein group gained less total weight, but what they gained was almost exclusively fat.

By limiting protein intake to an absurd degree (6% of total calories), it became hard to support muscle growth and organ size. As a result, the medium and high protein groups gained more lean mass. Since muscle weighs more than fat, this could explain the difference in total weight gain."

Gut Microbiota and Its Possible Relationship With Obesity
Evidence suggests that the metabolic activities of the gut microbiota facilitate the extraction of calories from ingested dietary substances and help to store these calories in host adipose tissue for later use. Furthermore, the gut bacterial flora of obese mice and humans include fewer Bacteroidetes and correspondingly more Firmicutes than that of their lean counterparts, suggesting that differences in caloric extraction of ingested food substances may be due to the composition of the gut microbiota. Bacterial lipopolysaccharide derived from the intestinal microbiota may act as a triggering factor linking inflammation to high-fat diet-induced metabolic syndrome. Interactions among microorganisms in the gut appear to have an important role in host energy homeostasis, with hydrogen-oxidizing methanogens enhancing the metabolism of fermentative bacteria.

PLoS ONE: Changes in Weight, Waist Circumference and Compensatory Responses with Different Doses of Exercise among Sedentary, Overweight Postmenopausal Women
The study quoted by the "Why exercise won't make you thin" article in Time magazine.

"Exercising women participated in 3 or 4 training sessions each week for 6 months with training intensity at the heart rate associated with 50% of VO2. All exercise sessions were performed under supervision in an exercise laboratory [...]. Women in the exercise groups alternated training sessions on semi-recumbent cycle ergometers and treadmills."

"Body fat was estimated from the sum of four skinfolds; triceps, abdomen, iliac crest and thigh. [...] The change in body fat was not statistically different across the control, 4,8 and 12 KKW groups"

In any case, exercising for 3 hours a week for 6 months under supervision led to a weight loss of only 2.7kg (6lbs).

"Participants were repeatedly informed that the study was not a weight loss trial and were asked not to change their dietary or physical activity habits."

Scientists now saying carbs, not fat, are to blame for America's ills - latimes.com
12-week 2008 study: 40 overweight or obese men and women with metabolic syndrome were put on a 1,500-calorie diet. Half went on a low-fat, high-carb diet. The others went on a low-carb, high-fat diet. The low-fat group consumed 12 grams of saturated fat a day out of a total of 40 grams of fat, while the low-carb group ate 36 grams of saturated fat a day out of a total of 100 grams of fat.

Results: triglycerides (which are risk factors for heart disease) had dropped by 50% in [the low-carb high-fat] group. Good HDL cholesterol increased 15%.

In the low-fat, high-carb group, triglycerides dropped only 20% and there was no change in HDL.

Dietary fat intake is not directly related to blood fat. Rather, the amount of carbohydrates in the diet appears to be a potent contributor.

Why people lose weight on low-carb diets: fat and protein increase satisfaction and reduce appetite. Simple carbs cause an insulin surge, which triggers a blood sugar drop, which makes you hungry again.

Why large girls hang out together
"If one person became obese, the likelihood that his friend would follow suit increased by 171 percent. (This means that the network is far more predictive of obesity than the presence of genes associated with the condition.)"

From a 2007 NY Times article, http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/25/health/25cnd-fat.html:
<<
Proximity did not seem to matter: the influence of the friend remained even if the friend was hundreds of miles away. And the greatest influence of all was between mutual close friends. There, if one became obese, the odds of the other becoming obese were nearly tripled.
"You change your idea of what is an acceptable body type by looking at the people around you," Dr. Christakis said.
On average, the investigators said, their rough calculations show that a person who became obese gained 17 pounds, and the newly obese person's friend gained 5. [...] on average, each student had 6.6 close friends in their [Facebook] online network.>>

The Fat-Busting Potential of Neuropeptide Y - Science and Society
<<"It's really liposuction in a bottle. You know, you can take the compound out, inject it and basically the fat would melt away" [...] Their major finding--made, as many are, almost by accident--is that a chemical neurotransmitter called neuropeptide Y is found extensively in fatty tissue. They've known about NPY for 25 years, but were mostly trying to see how it acts in the brain when one is under severe or prolonged stress. In this week's Nature Medicine, they report NPY appears to be a mechanism that tells the body to build blood vessels so fatty tissue can grow.

What's more, there's already a compound--NPY antagonist in their shorthand--that bonds to the same chemical receptors NPY would. The researchers gave their mice small injections of this chemical blocker, and the mice lost weight. Without changing their fatty diets or making them exercise.>>

The protein/fat/carb composition of diets followed for weight loss is largely irrelevant. All that matters is the calorie count and attendance of group sessions. 2-year randomized blind trial on 811 overweight adults. "By 2 years, weight loss remained similar in those who were assigned to a diet with 15% protein and those assigned to a diet with 25% protein (3.0 and 3.6 kg, respectively); in those assigned to a diet with 20% fat and those assigned to a diet with 40% fat (3.3 kg for both groups); and in those assigned to a diet with 65% carbohydrates and those assigned to a diet with 35% carbohydrates (2.9 and 3.4 kg, respectively) (P>0.20 for all comparisons)."
