Late eaters are more likely to gain weight, study finds

Late eaters who have their biggest meals after 6pm are more likely to gain weight because they consume MORE calories overall and have an unhealthier diet, study finds

  • Total calorie intake is higher for people who eat later, a study of 1,200 found
  • Science has suggested in the past that people are hungrier later in the day
  • Hungry people might make worse decisions about what to eat and binge 

People who eat most of their calories after 6pm tend to have unhealthier diets and eat more overall, according to a study.

Researchers said that late eaters were more likely to gain weight because they tend to let themselves get extremely hungry during the day.

This makes them more prone to binge eating, making bad

A lack of diversity in Nashville’s health care upper ranks

It’s been a point of pride in Nashville’s health care community just how many companies trace their roots back to HCA, the nation’s largest hospital chain, valued at more than $45 billion. It’s locally known as the “family tree” and has made the city a national hub for health care services. But health care leaders in the city also say it has failed to build critical diversity within its upper ranks.

In Nashville’s dominant health care sector, Chris Poole is one of the few Black entrepreneurs.

“Given where society was when health care got started in this town, there just isn’t really anyone who looks like me who is in that circle,” he said.

That circle was only white men when HCA incorporated in 1968.

Poole got his start with a health care investment fund. He now leads a startup called ThriveAP that helps hospitals support new nurse practitioners and

Plans for Arizona nursing homes to reopen for visitation varies by facility

Families should check with their loved ones’ individual care facilities about any changes in plans.

ARIZONA, USA — Most long-term care facilities have had their doors closed to visitors since March in an effort to combat the COVID-19 spread. Families have waited months to see their loved ones as the closures have extended months. 

“We never guessed it would go on this long,” says Dave Voelger, CEO of the Arizona Health Care Association. “Now we’re into Labor Day and it’s like holy cow, people haven’t been able to see their family members.”

Earlier this week, the Arizona Department of Health Services put out some guidance for allowing visitors back in and asked facilities to come up with plans by Sept. 4.  But just because there’s a plan in place, doesn’t mean a facility will choose to or be able to use it right away.  

Like with gyms, restaurants and schools,

“We’ve had no support”. Parents of children with learning difficulties face struggle following care centre closures | Central

Parents whose children have severe learning difficulties say they’ve been left without any support after their day care centres closed at the start of lockdown.

The centres provide community-based day activities and support for people with learning disabilities but many remain closed.

Some centres in England are starting to reopen at 10% capacity but it is unlikely they will return to pre-pandemic levels before the autumn.

Families, carers and support organisations are worried there will not be enough places and they say local authorities have let them down.

Sandwell Council says it took the decision to ask day centre providers to close in March following the imposition of national restrictions, particularly given the vulnerability of people who attend day care, and who would be at potentially increased risk of complications should they catch the virus.

Sandwell is currently on the coronavirus “watchlist” after a number of localised outbreaks in workplaces

Medical grads on the frontline

THE Covid-19 global pandemic has forced us to turn to our healthcare frontliners for help and hope.

Recognising that medical professionals need to be prepared to deal with global crises, the University of Cyberjaya (UoC) ensures all its MBBS students are exposed to the Disaster Relief and Medicine (DRM) programme – one of the few universities in the region to provide such training for MBBS students to develop leadership skills in unprecedented circumstances.

The MBBS programme at UoC has produced 1,341 doctors, most of whom are now specialists. As they move forward in their careers, the alumni gives back to society by utilising their special skills learnt in the DRM programme.

“I remember my lecturer saying that we will face a lot of obstacles and struggles in our medical career, but we were told to face them with patience, ” said Dr Aziezah Norul Anhar who graduated from UoC in

Most hospitals in England will fall short of official demands to increase their services back to almost pre-Covid levels next month as they continue to deal with the fallout from the pandemic, health service insiders have warned.

An official edict by NHS England called on trusts across the country to return a series of services back to 90% of activity levels seen before the crisis hit. However, insiders warned that the continued need for extra precautions to cope with Covid-19 meant some hospital trusts would still be 30% below their pre-crisis capacity.

Alabama makes its case to keep students on campus amid pandemic

If there were questions about Alabama’s plan to keep in-person classes, the UA System’s news release sent Wednesday evening had the answer.

The headline in bold type stated “Leading medical experts caution universities that are considering closing” with quotes from doctors and infectious disease experts.

It comes two days before the UA System plans to release its next round of student COVID-19 test results after more than 1,000 were infected in the first week of classes in Tuscaloosa. A handful of schools including North Carolina, North Carolina State and Notre Dame have ended or paused face-to-face classes after campus outbreaks.

The Alabama campuses, it appears, are sticking it out.

“There is a strong feeling among public health and infectious disease experts that it is safer to keep students on a college campus where there is COVID-19 spread rather than closing campus and sending students home en masse,” said Dr. Michael
