‘Green’ Mediterranean diet burns fat faster than just healthy eating: study

  ‘Green’ Mediterranean diet burns fat faster than just healthy eating: study Following the “green” Mediterranean diet helps burn fat three times faster than typical healthy eating, a new study shows. Research published in the BMC Medicine journal found that eating a plant-based Mediterranean diet allowed the body to burn a dangerous type of body fat at triple the rate compared to those on a generally “healthy” diet. Those who consumed the diet for 18 months saw their visceral fat levels reduced by 14%, compared to a control group who ate a standard healthy diet and only saw their fat levels reduced by just 4.5%. And a conventional Med diet performed half as well as its meat-free counterpart.

Beauty standards are forever changing but over the past few years, plus-sized models have asserted their place in the fashion industry.

This woman was branded as "too fat" to fulfill her dream but the negative comments about her size 14 frame made her even more determined.

Now, Sharon Clawson, 26, is working for top brands like Good American, the inclusive jeans company Khloe Kardashian launched in 2018, H&M, Sephora, and more.

Los-Angeles based Clawson told Newsweek: "TikTok can be brutal. Just because I look this way, doesn't make me unhealthy—I go to the gym 5-6 times a week. Just because my body isn't a size 2, doesn't mean I am unhealthy.

"A majority of the backlash comes from men who comment on my weight—it's sad. I have always had a big build. I remember in 6th grade, a teacher said, 'You have a pretty face, don't let your body ruin it.'

"I was so impressionable at a young age and fed off validation from others."

Clawson admits feeling "insecure" about her body for a long time but now she couldn't be happier to flaunt her curves online. She previously racked up over 82,000 views on TikTok by showcasing her physique in a bikini.

  A 28-year-old who got her buccal fat removed last year and has 'zero regrets' describes the procedure Everyone is talking about buccal fat removal which makes cheeks appear more slim. YouTuber Amber Rapp shares what it's really like to have the procedure.Siwa appeared to announce the breakup in the video — a montage of their time on a seven-day Royal Carribean cruise —  when she said, "This is my 'I'm sorry for breaking up with you' present'" to Cyrus in what appeared to be an arcade, in one of the clips. Cyrus confirmed the breakup in a comment on the video, which was posted Saturday.

"I used to go to the gym for all the wrong reasons such as chasing a number on a scale and fitting into clothes that I knew wouldn't fit.

"But since I've been going with the mindset of feeling empowered for myself, feeling stronger, and feeding my soul, I show up for myself," she said.

'Education Wasn't For Me, But I Wanted To Make My Mom Proud'

Clawson was studying to be a nurse for four years—something her mom dreamed of her doing. However, she decided to start a career in the fashion industry instead, despite being told she will never make it.

"Education wasn't for me. I was just trying to make my mom proud—she is Malaysian and Sri Lankan so it was very important for her to have educated children. I decided enough was enough. I was a nursing major for almost half a decade and I hated it.

"She (mom) didn't trust the modeling journey because I have a different body to the average model, but now she accepts it as I have been consistently working since 2017," she told Newsweek.

When Clawson isn't posing for clothing and makeup brands, she is at home creating content for her TikTok account, @sharontheclaw.

Why doctors are urging caution about a plastic surgery trend

  Why doctors are urging caution about a plastic surgery trend Plastic surgeons said they're seeing an increase in patients requesting the simple but "irreversible" procedure.The surgery, which is done under local anesthesia, involves incisions being made in the back of the mouth so some of the fat in the cheek area can be removed.

In July, researchers at Boston University studied the social media accounts of 159 plus-sized models and 10 models from outside the range. The study found the increasing popularity of plus-sized models by representing curvaceous figures within their marketing campaigns.

Collectively, 144 plus-sized models had 51 million followers and 190,000 total posts. The top 10 highest-paid mainstream models averaged 38 million followers, compared to the top 10 plus-sized models with an average of approximately 3.8 million followers.

'I Decided To Stop Hating Myself'

Clawson uses her platform to advocate body positivity along with paid partnerships with brands.

Speaking to Newsweek, she said: "I decided to stop hating myself, love the body I am in, not just exist in it. There's no point hating something I can't fully change. My dad's family has big builds and it's something I have inherited. I remember the first time I put a bikini on, I couldn't believe I spent so long hating my body and letting people tell me I shouldn't wear certain things."

She hopes her story encourages other people to follow their dreams.

"Anyone doubting their ambitions, there is space for you in the creative world. You shouldn't let anyone project their fears or hate onto you. I can sympathize with trolls because their negativity is coming from a sad place. I think they are projecting their anger and insecurities onto others."
