U.S. researchers presented at a major scientific conference in Canada, a more realistic mathematical model of weight loss goals, showing how the current medical recommendations are flawed. Unlike other simulators, "this new tool takes into account the differences in metabolism between individuals, their sex, the initial amount of your body fat and age," said Kevin Hall on Sunday, an expert on obesity at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney USA (NIDDKD for its acronym in English) Disease.
This new model "can make reasonably accurate estimates of the expected weight loss, contrary to the overly optimistic forecasts of the old general system used for 50 years in America," he added.
Hall presented his work at the Conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS for its acronym in English), which took place this weekend in Vancouver (British Colombia, western Canada).The creation of this simulator was the subject of a study published in August in 2011 in the British medical journal The Lancet, and which Hall is the lead author.Click Here And Get Entertainment News-http://alexandratoot.livejournal.com/727.html
Under the current system, which estimates that 3,500 calories equals one pound (0.45 kg), it is estimated that if every day you have a 500 calorie deficit, burning them with physical activity or reducing the nutritional value, a pound is lost week Kevin Hall accurate.
But this view is incorrect because the model does not take into account differences in metabolism, insisted the scientist. The new simulator "is a tool that people can enter your age, height, weight and estimated physical activity," he said, giving the e-mail address to access the model.
”This new model can simulate the changes to be made to food and physical exercise for a person to achieve their weight loss goals," said Kevin Hall.
For the team of U.S. researchers who participated in this study, the new rule on the matter states that 1,000 fewer calories per day, corresponds to a pound lost.
