Smoking is a habit that is hard to quit but a new study has found that people are more likely to quit if there is a strong communication between regions of the brain that are associated with inhibiting and executing automated behavior. This study published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry was conducted by scientists from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC).
Eating foods rich in starch and sugar in the evening increases blood glucose levels in men with pre-diabetes but in healthy adults, the timing of a carbohydrate meal did not matter. Prediabetes is when the person has blood glucose levels above normal, ie, between 100 - 125 mg/dl but not high enough to be termed as diabetic. Pre-diabetes is a condition in which the individual is at an increased risk for diabetes but by changing their lifestyle, the risk can be reduced.
