FDA Warns Against Eating Too Much Black Licorice

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFoodHealth

Black Licorice

This news may not make this year's Halloween a happy one for some people.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning adults 40 years of age or older to cut back on black licorice.

Eating 2 ounces of the candy a day for at least two weeks may lead to arrhythmia, or irregular heart rhythm, which could possibly land you in the emergency room.

A sweetening compound found in black licorice called glycyrrhizin can cause the body's potassium levels to drop, which may lead to abnormal heartbeat and high blood pressure.

Don't get too worked up though because (A.) we're assuming not many people eat that much black licorice and (B.) the FDA only received one report of this actually affecting a person last year. Not exactly an epidemic.

Still, you've been warned! Ha!

Boxing Gloves: Does Size Matter?

Filed under: Exclusives!Q&AFitnessAdviceBoxing

Boxing can be a competitive sport or just a great way to blow off steam and stay in shape. To get the best results it's always better to have the best gear.

FitPerez reader Dennis J wrote our favorite boxer, Alex Brenes, for some expert advice on choosing the right boxing gloves for his size and purposes, asking:

Hi Alex,

Firstly, thank you for helping me.

I am a 6 ft 170lb man. I have been using Boxing Gloves from a local sports store and working out in my garage.

Do you know if there are certain sizes of gloves for my weight / size?

Great question! According to Alex:

You are welcome D!

You are in pretty good shape according to your size and weight, so keep it up bro. Glove sizes for competitions change. Minimum weights up to middleweights use 8 ounce gloves to fight, while those above middleweight use 10 ounce gloves to fight.

For training purposes, the idea is to get faster and stronger with heavier gloves. So for sparring, use a 16 ounce set for minimum to middleweights and an 18 ounce set for the larger weights. For bag or pad work use 12 or 14 ounce gloves.

Hope this helps, now keep your hands up, chin down and hit it!!!!
