Esher, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 04, 2012 -- "According to weight loss specialists losing those unwanted pounds, and keeping them from coming back, comes down to being able to face setbacks and keep working toward your goal." Says Kirsten Whittaker, editor of the DHB.

Fascinating findings. How you eat might just have an impact on the health of your brain. So, what's best for the brain?

A new study finds that a diet that regularly contains lots of specific vitamins (B, C, D, E) as well as omega-3 fats, while being low in trans fats, is best for the brain. Older subjects who ate like this were found to have less shrinkage in the brain (linked with Alzheimer's), and got higher scores on tests of thinking ability than those who had less nutrient rich diets.

We've all heard that milk "does a body good" but some people aren't so sure that this most popular of drinks might not do a body some harm instead. Research fnds that older Icelandic men who said they recall drinking a lot of milk in their teens are three times more likely to be diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer as more moderate teen milk drinkers. This makes experts wonder if the years of puberty, a time when the prostate matures, could also be a period of heightened vulnerability for the gland as well.

A meal out at a restaurant is often a welcome treat... but it can be a real challenge if you're on a diet. Menus make the food look especially delicious, and research has shown that seeing or smelling something delicious can erode anyone's resolve.

But that lovely time out at a restaurant doesn't have to mean lots of extra calories or an unhealthy meal, there are a few simple rules you can follow to keep a meal out from ruining your weight loss efforts.

Red meat lovers, beware! A large U.S. study finds that those who eat lots of red meat might have a higher risk of certain forms of kidney cancer.

While earlier research in this area produced mixed conclusions, the current study worked to clear up the picture, using data on almost 500,000 U.S. adults over 50 who had been surveyed on what they ate on a regular basis, including meat intake, and then followed for an average of nine years to see if any cancer was diagnosed.
