What Really Happens to Your Body When You Skip a Meal

Maybe you rushed out of the house to get to work on time. Maybe you forgot to eat. Maybe you thought it’d help you lose weight a little faster. Whatever the reason, skipping a meal isn’t a practice you want to make a habit. In fact, passing on your breakfast, lunch or dinner might make losing weight even more difficult.


Jenny Craig’s Registered Dietitian, Briana Rodriquez, explains how you can make the most out of your meals and why skipping them could impact your weight loss.

New Study Reveals: Cancer Deaths Have Declined, But Obesity-Related Cancers are on the Rise

It’s a shocking statistic, but true: After heart disease, cancer is the leading cause of death not only in the U.S., but across the world as well.1-2  But the great news is that deaths from cancer have been dropping steadily over the past few decades. In fact, newly released statistics from the American Cancer Society3 show a 27 percent reduction in cancer mortality over the span of 25 years. This equates to a decline of approximately 1.5 percent per year between 1991 and 2016 — and 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths during that timeframe. Researchers attribute these reductions primarily to steady reductions in smoking, coupled with advances in early detection and treatment.

Ask an R.D.: Are Eggs Healthy and Do They Cause High Cholesterol?

Several years ago, when I decided to raise a flock of chickens so my family could enjoy fresh eggs nearly any day of the year, people looked at me as if I’d gone a bit loopy. “Eggs are terrible for you!” some exclaimed. “You’ll give yourself a heart attack!” others admonished. 

 

I’d heard the warnings that eggs could cause high cholesterol and increase the risk of so-called cardiovascular events, but I wasn’t convinced that such claims were true. Undaunted, I continued on my chicken-tending, delicious egg-eating quest. And guess what? No signs of heart issues or high cholesterol for me or anyone in my family. 

 

Now that all of the chatter about the so-called health risks of eggs has subsided, I feel more than a little vindicated. But how did something so delicious — and healthy — become so maligned? And what does the science say now? 

 

I spoke with Briana Rodriquez, R.D., Jenny Craig’s registered dietitian, to find out the truth about eggs. She shared information about how enjoying them in moderation, and as part of a healthy diet, can not only help you in your weight loss efforts, but may also contribute to your overall health goals. Here’s how.
