Lose Weight by Changing When you Eat

Changing when you eat could help you lose weight!

British researchers studied the effects of ‘time-restricted feeding’ which limits eating to a certain number of hours each day. 

People who ate a later breakfast and an earlier dinner lost more than twice as much body fat than those who did not change their meal times.

They also tended to eat less.

However,  more than half said the schedule would be too hard to maintain.

Addictive Drugs and Learning Disabilities

Children exposed to addictive drugs in the womb are more likely to have learning disabilities.

A new study from the Tennessee Department of Health tracked more than 7,000 young children.

Those born with drugs in their system were more likely to have learning problems and require special education.

Developmental and speech delays were the most common disabilities among these children. 

Car Seat Recommendations

The American Academy of Pediatrics has updated their recommendations on car seats for children.

Doctors now say kids should remain rear-facing as long as possible even past their second birthday.

Instead, parents should make the switch when children reach the highest weight or height allowed by their seat.

Studies show rear-facing is the safest way to ride because the head, neck, and spine are supported by the seat.
