Co-author Salim Merali said for the purpose of the study, six healthy males were “forced” to consume 6000 calories every day for a whole week — a diet consisting of about 50 percent carbohydrates, 35 percent fats, and 15 percent protein.
“It was a regular, American diet, composed of pizzas, hamburgers and that sort of thing,” he told New Scientist.
“They took to the diet, and liked it.”
The only catch was subjects were required to forgo any physical exercise for the entire duration of the experiment and were also forced to remain bed-bound so they could be carefully monitored.
“In that time, the men gained an average of 7.7 pounds and showed signs of insulin resistance as well as oxidative stress,” wrote the researchers.
This meant their sugar-absorbing insulin stopped working, which caused glucose to build up in their bloodstream instead of getting absorbed by their cells — a factor that can lead to diabetes.
Co-author Guenther Boden said while he expected to see some changes in the patients, he was shocked at just how fast they occurred.
“I was more surprised at the rapidity of the onset than the magnitude,” he told Yahoo.
“The change happened after a day or two — and became significant after three days.”
Boden said as researchers now had proof overeating can be instrumental in the development of type 2 diabetes, the challenge was to move the research forward.
“The very first thing we’re going to do is to see how reversible this is,” he said.
“Now that we know you can cause insulin resistance very quickly if you overeat, but what if you return to your normal eating habits with a lower caloric intake — how long will it take to go away?
And does it go away at all?
It’s no mystery that sneakers sales in the United States are generally off the charts. From June 2014 to June 2015, roughly $34 billion worth of kicks were sold stateside. Courtesy of an infographic from PBS, we also see that 99% of footwear sold in the U.S. comes from foreign manufacturers, with 237,100,000 pairs (more than 50%) of athletic shoes coming from China last year, and 157,100,000 (34%) coming from Vietnam. Reports also reveal that Nike and Jordan brand make up more than 90% of basketball shoe sales in America, and even given their reputation and reach, that number is still somewhat surprising.
Nonetheless, how much of the $34 billion did you contribute?
Also, as a reseller, Sole Supremacy alone sells over $3 million per year.
ARLINGTON, Texas — There’s a lot I can’t figure out about the New York Giants‘ 27-26 loss to the Cowboys here Sunday night, but let’s start with what running back Rashad Jennings said about his role in the horribly botched final offensive sequence.
“As a running back, it’s really tough when they tell you not to score,” Jennings said.
Which is weird, because if Jennings had scored on first down from the 4-yard line or second down from the 2-yard line after the two-minute warning, as he insists he could have, the Giants would have had a 10-point lead with about 100 seconds left in the game. No amount of Tony Romo magic could have overcome that.
So who was telling him not to score and why? This from Eli Manning may help explain:
“I thought they had used their last timeout on that play to Odell when we got the first down,” Manning said. “I thought that they only had one timeout left after that. I guess since there was a penalty, even though we declined it, for some reason that stops the clock.”
That is true. By rule, the clock stops on a penalty in the final five minutes of the fourth quarter whether the penalty is declined or accepted. Manning didn’t know this, and so he assumed Dallas had called timeout and that the clock would keep running after Jennings’ second-down run.
“Bad clock management there,” Manning said.
But not as bad as throwing an incomplete pass on third down. Manning knew he should have taken the sack instead and let the clock keep running.
“Yeah, I should have,” Manning said. “One hundred percent on me right there. Bad clock management for that whole deal. I had an option. Just take the sack and run those 40 seconds off the clock, give them less time. That’s 100 percent on me and that can’t happen.”
Manning insisted on shouldering the blame even though coach Tom Coughlin told the team and the media that he would take it all.
“There is nobody else to blame but me,” Coughlin said. “The decision to throw the ball there on third down was not a good decision. It should have been a run, whether we scored or not.”
I also think they should have gone for it on fourth down from the 1, partly because I think everyone should. Fourth-and-goal is one of football’s great untapped scoring resources. Coughlin said he didn’t want to risk requiring the Cowboys to traverse only half the field to tie the game. And the way Tony Romo had picked apart the defense on his previous drive, he had to be thinking 1:37 was enough time for Romo to go 99 yards and win it, too.
“The drives toward the end of the game were, quite frankly, knives through butter,” Coughlin said. “It was too easy. But that’s not the reason we lost. They shouldn’t have had the time to even do that, had we done it properly.”
A fair point by a seasoned leader taking the blame for his team’s loss. But the bigger picture here is that the Giants’ defense gave up 436 yards in the game and Romo was 11-for-12 for 147 yards on his final two possessions. The Giants’ defense was overmatched.
But because of three turnovers, they were in a position to win this game on the road against a division rival they haven’t beaten since 2012. And they didn’t. And Coughlin and Manning are right that they could have spared their defense the apparently impossible task of stopping Romo in the two-minute drill. Most weeks with this defense, they’re not likely to be in a position to win. To miss a chance this good is a crusher.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will have surgery Tuesday to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot, according to a source.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett pegged Bryant’s recovery time as four to six weeks, which could keep him out until the Oct. 26 rematch with the Giants or the Nov. 1 meeting with the Seattle Seahawks at AT&T Stadium.
The Cowboys, coming off a 27-26 win against the New York Giants on Sunday night, have their bye week on Oct. 18.
Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence suffered a similar injury last year in training camp. He missed the first eight games of the season in part because he was placed on injured reserve/designated to return.
The fifth metatarsal is on the outside of the foot. Bryant was hurt in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game on a crossing route. He was replaced in the lineup by Devin Street.
Bryant, who signed a five-year, $70 million deal with $48 million guaranteed in the offseason, has had at least 88 catches and 1,200 yards each of the past three seasons, scoring 41 touchdowns in that span.
As his teammates returned to the locker room, Bryant burst out of the locker room, hopping on one foot, jumping and congratulating teammates coming off the field.
