Mum stops spending £150 a week on takeaways and loses six stone

A woman has lost almost six stone by ditching her £8,000-a-year takeaway habit.

Sarah Pattison was spending up to £150 on fast food every week, ordering either a Chinese or a McDonald’s takeaway most nights.

During this time, the 26-year-old weighed 17 stone and struggled to fit into a size 20. 

The stay-at-home mum, from Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, says: ‘I felt really sluggish and just couldn’t be bothered to cook so I’d have a takeaway or shove in a ready meal.’

But when Sarah was offered the Covid vaccine prematurely, because of her obesity, she wanted to make a change. 

She adds: ‘I’ve always wanted to lose weight and when I got offered the Covid vaccine early – due to being overweight – I knew I needed to do something.’

In April 2021, Sarah joined the Cambridge 1:1 diet and ate just meal replacements for the first four months – in order to kick-start her weight loss.

However, this was particularly challenging for the 26-year-old – who had previously started her mornings with a McDonald’s breakfast and ordered a takeaway most evenings.

She adds: ‘The first four days were really tough.

‘I was used to have so much food so it was really difficult only having about 600 calories a day.’

But the diet worked and Sarah successfully started to shed the pounds.

Now, just months on, the mum has lost 5st 9lbs and has reached her target weight of 11st 4lbs – and hopes to keep up her hard work.

She now prefers home-cooked meals such as salads, steamed vegetables and Quorn, and will walk four to six miles a day to stay fit.

Sarah says: ‘I feel so much better after losing the weight – I finally have energy again.

‘I used to always make up an excuse as to why I couldn’t go somewhere and I never wanted photos of myself taken.

‘Now I am happy to pose for a photo and all my friends who hadn’t seen me over lockdown barely recognised me.

‘They didn’t believe I had lost weight so quickly and all thought I had had surgery.’

Sarah has also saved money from cutting out fast food – which she sets aside for days out with her kids. 

What’s more, her mental and physical health is in a much better place.

‘I have so much more energy to get up and go,’ she adds.

Sean Wainui dead: New Zealand rugby star killed in car crash at just 25-years-old

Super Rugby Trans-Tasman Rd 5 - Waratahs v Chiefs

Sean Wainui’s death was confirmed on Monday (Picture: Getty Images)

Sean Wainui, rugby union star who played for the Maori All Blacks and Chiefs, has been killed in a car crash in New Zealand at just 25-years-old.

The single car crash, in which Wainui was the only occupant, was confirmed on Monday morning at McLaren Falls Park near Tauranga, with the car hitting a tree.

Wainui had turned out for Taranaki, Crusaders, Chiefs and Bay of Plenty, while also representing the Maori All Blacks 10 times.

Wainui set a record earlier this year when he scored five tries for the Chiefs against Waratahs, the most in a Super Rugby game.

Wainui is survived by his wife Paige and two young children.

‘He was an influential member in the teams he has been a part of and his presence will be missed,’ Maori All Blacks, Chiefs and former Bay of Plenty head coach Clayton McMillan said of Wainui.

‘He epitomised everything you could possibly ask for in a player. He will be remembered for being a passionate, hard-working, proud Maori who was an exceptional player but more importantly father and husband.’

New Zealand Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson added: ‘We know Sean’s passing will be felt deeply by everyone involved in rugby, particularly his Bay of Plenty and Chiefs team-mates and we share their sorrow and their shock.’

The All Blacks posted on Twitter: ‘We are heartbroken right now. Sean, you were an inspiration and will never be forgotten. We extend all of our strength and aroha to your friends and whānau.’

Sonny Bill WIlliams added: ‘My thoughts are with Sean Wainuis’ family. Especially his wife & young child. Although I didn’t play alongside him, I could always feel his mana coming up against him as his opposition.’

New Zealand Māori Rugby Board chair Farah Palmer said: ‘As a player we all saw what this young tāne was capable of and the passion and talent that he brought to the teams he represented, but we also saw a role model for young Māori, a caring father who was passionate about his culture, his language, and his identity. He will be sorely missed.’

Spending time in space can lead to brain damage, new research shows

Published by
DPA
Prolonged time in weightlessness is now thought to lead to brain damage, in new research that poses more questions for the health risks of space travel. NASA/dpa

Spending time in space can damage the brains of astronauts, according to new research that poses questions for the long-term risks of future space travel.

Blood tests of space travellers indicate a slight but persistent brain injury and a faster ageing of the brain upon returning to earth, scientists at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich say in a study published in the Jama Neurology journal in October.

The research came just days before “Star Trek” icon William Shatner became the latest in a growing number of non-professional astronauts to enter space.

However while space tourism is set to become a luxury business for rich patrons, the warning of potential brain damage appears to apply only to longer stays in space, and not to the few minutes of weightlessness that are part of new space enterprises like Blue Origin, used by Shatner.

Researchers believe one possible cause of brain damage during space travel is weightlessness, as it disturbs the flow of blood from the head, which is thought to lead to an increase in pressure in the cerebrospinal fluid over time.

Studies had already indicated that longer journeys into space not only cause muscles and bones to shrink, but also have an effect on the astronaut’s brain. However it was unclear whether these processes were harmful.

To find out, LMU physicians Peter zu Eulenburg and Alexander Chouker, together with colleagues in Sweden and Russia, examined the blood of five Russian space travellers who had spent five and a half months in the International Space Station (ISS).

The researchers showed that several proteins characteristic of ageing and brain injuries increased significantly immediately after returning from space. This was especially true for the first week after the return.

In order to keep the risks for space travellers as low as possible during long-term missions such as a trip to Mars, “more comprehensive studies with preventive measures against the increase in pressure in the head are absolutely necessary,” said LMU physician Peter zu Eulenburg.

The phenomenon that longer stays in space lead to changes in the brain has long been known as Spaceflight Associated Neuro-Ocular Syndrome (Sans), said Jens Jordan, Director of the Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Aerospace Center.

However, the study does not yet clarify whether the changes in the brain also lead to physical restrictions for those affected: “A biomarker in the blood does not yet say anything about clinical ailments.”

According to Jordan, the space agencies NASA and EA are working on countermeasures. Among other things, they are investigating whether a centrifuge for space travellers with artificial gravity could help.

A study is also currently underway on the effectiveness of negative pressure in the lower half of the body to drain fluids. “This is one of the medical challenges of spaceflight,” Jordan said.

The researchers had analysed the astronauts’ blood before and immediately after the flight, as well as one and three weeks later. Long-term studies and larger subject groups are needed to better understand the connection between the stay in space and possible neurological damage, they write in the scientific journal.

Monday Night Football FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 6 Bills-Titans single-game tournaments

Monday Night Football FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 6 Bills-Titans single-game tournaments

It was almost a year ago to the day when the Titans handed the Bills their first loss of the season in a 42-16 blowout in a rare edition of “Tuesday Night Football.” The odds of that happening in Week 6 on Monday Night Football are slim, as Buffalo is expected to win with relative ease, opening as five-point road favorites at several online sportsbooks. Even with that said, we have a good mix of Bills and Titans in our FanDuel single game lineup because we all know viable DFS picks can come from anywhere in one-off DFS contests.

Here’s a reminder of FanDuel’s scoring system for single-game contests: The point total for the “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, but he doesn’t cost any additional money like the “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel’s default scoring is half-point PPR and four-point passing TDs, and there are no bonuses for 300-yard/100-yard games like on DraftKings.

MORE FD SINGLE GAME: How to win a FanDuel single-game contest

FanDuel Single Game DFS Picks: Bills vs. Titans

$60,000 budget, need at least one player from each team 

MVP (1.5x points): QB Josh Allen, Bills ($17,000)

Allen sputtered out of the gate with a pair of sub-20-point performances, but he flirted with the 40-point plateau in two of his past three contests. Another big point total is in order against a less-than-stellar Titans pass defense, making Allen an easy call as our MVP.

FLEX: RB Derrick Henry, Titans ($15,000)

If there’s such a thing as a player being “matchup proof,” Henry certainly qualifies. Buffalo’s defense has played as well or better than any team in the league thus far, and they’ll be keyed in on the reigning two-time rushing champ. That’s enough reason to fade Henry, though. He was limited to 63 total yards in the Titans’ 2020 victory over the Bills, but he still found paydirt twice.

MORE MNF: DraftKings lineup | Brown injury update

FLEX: WR Stefon Diggs, Bills ($12,500)

It’s been No. 2 wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders who has hogged touchdowns, scoring four times compared once for Diggs. Diggs, however, does still lead the team with 47 targets while averaging 13.4 yards per reception. It’s all going to click for Diggs sooner rather than later, and we’re going to be all over him as long as his price tag is relatively low.

FLEX: TE Dawson Knox, Bills ($9,000)

Knox has increased his scoring output in each week this season, culminating in 19.2 FanDuel points in the Bills’ Week 5 win over the Chiefs. He’s scored five touchdowns over his past four games, and while we can’t expect that streak to last, we’re going to ride the hot hand in this spot. Knox is doing more than just scoring touchdowns, though. He’s fourth on the team in targets (24) and receptions (18), and he’s averaging a robust 14.5 yards per catch.

FLEX: TE Anthony Firkser, Titans ($6,000)

We’re going to roll the dice with Firkser here, mostly for salary purposes but also because we’re hunting for a cheap score. Not only do the Bills give up the second fewest points to wide receivers, but A.J. Brown (illness) and Julio Jones (hamstring) aren’t likely to handle full workloads as they inch their way back toward full health. Firkser has earned 13 targets in three games and reeled in three grabs in each contest. Modest numbers to say the least, but he leads Titans tight ends despite playing two fewer games than the rest. Finally, there is often a score or two by ancillary pieces in these standalone slates, and Firkser isn’t a bad bet to notch one.

Jussie Smollett’s criminal case to proceed to trial

Published by
BANG Showbiz English

Jussie Smollett’s criminal case will proceed to trial.

The 39-year-old actor was issued with a 16-count felony indictment for filing a false police report after he claimed he was the victim of a shocking racist and homophobic attack in Chicago in 2019, as it was alleged he knew two men investigated over the incident and claims were made that he had staged the attack.

Jussie’s initial charges were dropped by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office in the same month they were filed, but in February 2020 he was indicted once again for allegedly staging the attack.

His attorney Nenye Uche argued that the criminal case would be a violation of Smollett’s since he has already performed community service and paid a $10,000 bond as part of a previous agreement with the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.

However, the attempt to have the case dismissed failed and Judge James Linn has ruled that proceedings will begin on November 29, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

Smollett has pled not guilty to the charges.

Meanwhile, Jussie said last year he wished he could “yell from the rooftop” about his ongoing criminal case.

Addressing the case on Instagram Live, Jussie explained: “It’s been beyond frustrating because to be somebody that’s so outspoken … it’s been difficult to be so quiet.

“To not be able to say all of the things that you want to say, to not be able to yell from the rooftop.”

Despite maintaining his innocence, Jussie was not feeling optimistic about his case, saying the city of Chicago “won’t let this go”.

The actor also said he fears the court could seek to make an “example” of him.

Jussie said: “They won’t let this go. It doesn’t matter. There is an example being made.

“And the sad thing is that there’s an example being made of someone that did not do what they’re being accused of.”
