In many recent studies, researchers note that Alabama, Lowa, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Virginia, and Arkansas have the highest percentage of obese people. The data shows that around 31% of the United States population is obese.

That’s a startling fact.

Things Endocrinologist Do For Weight Loss

If you are motivated enough and want to lose weight, arrange an appointment with an endocrinologist for a proper hormonal check-up.

Endocrinology is a branch of science that studies diseases caused by hormonal imbalance. An expert in endocrinology, known as an endocrinologist, will run a few tests to diagnose whether your obesity is due to hormonal imbalance or not. And if it is, he’ll help you treat your hormonal problems and help you avoid any serious complications that can arise from obesity.

Hormones in our body are responsible for almost everything:

  • Regulation of respiration
  • Regulation of Metabolism
  • Regulation of Sensory Perception
  • Regulation of Human Growth

According to a recent survey in the U.S, it was found that roughly  31% of the entire population is obese. Another statistic shows that almost 16% of the entire U.S population makes weight loss plans as a new year resolution.

Further, every year, thousands of weight management products launch all across the world. According to data in 2018, almost 11,000  weight management products were launched all across the world.

A fairly new trend is that of keto or ketogenic pills such as Pruvit Keto Kreme as one of the thousands of weight management/loss products.

Ketogenic Diet and Keto Pills

Since its emergence in the 1920s, the keto diet has been becoming famous for health purposes, particularly in weight loss.

Carbohydrates 5%
Proteins 20%
Fats 75%

Healing Trauma with Sports 0

Posted on November 14, 2020 by Marty Wolner

Playing team sports can heal a developing brain from the impact of emotional trauma and extreme stress and promote improved mental health.

Sure, it’s fairly obvious that playing team sports can be healthy for many reasons, but now the latest brain research shows how the natural and normal activities performed during team sports participation will actually heal the parts of the brain that may be underdeveloped or wounded by previous traumatic experience or current extreme stress. 

As an example, research indicates teenagers who participate in team sports have significantly lower rates of anxiety and depression while in high school and then also into adulthood.

More good news is that most athletes, parents, coaches and other sports mentors can quickly learn simple things to do intentionally while playing sports to heal the brain while achieving peak performance.

Posted on November 07, 2020 by Ravi Jain

If you are new to playing ice hockey, you need to know some safety measures to avoid injury. The first step to start is purchasing the right kind of gear that supports your game and secures you. 

Ice hockey gear for safety

Check out all that you need and how to use:


When talking about preventing injuries, the first thing you need is a good helmet. Make sure the helmet you buy is certified for security. The helmets must come with a full facemask and protective chin strap and cup. Also, tighten the product to make sure it is fastened properly.


Buy the perfect pair of skates from a hockey shop that fits into your size. Lace them tightly and check if they fit comfortably. Hockey skates must offer ankle support. The toe cup should be made of hard plastic or steel. If you already have old skates, sharpen them to perform better. Not following this step can make your skates get stuck in the ice.

Pads for shoulders, elbows, shin, and knee 

Your uniform for playing ice hockey must include padding for elbows, shin, knee, and shoulders. It is similar to playing soccer, as you need ample protection. The shin and knee pads should be made of rigid plastic and reach the top of your skate’s area.
