Getting dumped can lead to weight loss, reveals a new research.

A new survey of 1,000 people by the diet firm Forza Supplements shows that women lose an average of 5 lb (2.26 kg) in the first month after being dumped by a lover, reports dailystar.co.uk.

And if they stay single for a year after the break-up of a long-term relationship they are likely to be at least a stone lighter.

“Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria said she lost more than a stone and suffered health problems after her split from basketball star Tony Parker in 2011.

“I was so skinny. I was not eating. I was depressed. I was sad. My diet was coffee. People kept saying, ‘You look amazing, divorce agrees with you.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t feel good. I have no energy’. I didn’t know I was depressed,” she said. (Bollywood Country)

Losing Weight Can Help Lower The Risk of Breast Cancer For Post-menopausal Women

"These findings, taken together, provide strong correlative evidence that a modest weight loss programme can impact breast cancer,"

Women, please take a note. Losing weight can help lower the risk of developing breast cancer in the post-menopausal stage, a new study has found.

The study, published in the journal CANCER, found that among post-menopausal women, participants who lost weight had a lower risk of developing invasive breast cancer than those who maintained or gained weight.

“Our study indicates that moderate, relatively short-term weight reduction was associated with a statistically significant reduction in breast cancer risk for postmenopausal women,” said co-author Rowan Chlebowski from the City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, California.

Although obesity has been strongly related to breast cancer risk, studies examining whether weight loss might reduce postmenopausal women’s risk have provided mixed results, the researchers said.

For the study, the research team analysed information on 61,335 women participating in the World Health Initiative Observational Study who had no prior history of breast cancer and had normal mammogram results.

The participant’s body weight, height and body mass index were assessed at the start of the study and again three years later.

The team found that during an average follow-up of 11.4 years, there were 3,061 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed.

“These are observational results, but they are also supported by randomised clinical trial evidence from the Women’s Health Initiative Dietary Modification trial where, in a randomised clinical trial setting, adopting a low-fat dietary pattern that was associated with a similar magnitude of weight loss resulted in a significant improvement in breast cancer overall survival,” Chlebowski said.

“These findings, taken together, provide strong correlative evidence that a modest weight loss programme can impact breast cancer,” he noted. (IANS)
