Plant-based diet? Sure, but first understand what it means by Carrie Dennett

The concept of eating a “plant-based” diet is tossed around frequently, but it’s a label that can be confusing. Some people shy away from the notion because they assume that plant-based is code for vegan. On the other hand, it’s easy to think that eating all plants and no animals guarantees that your diet is healthful and nutritious. But does it?

New research claims low carbs and artificial sweeteners a recipe for weight gain by John Elder

What the heck… they write this article about how artificial sweeteners and low carbs cause weight gain but at the end of the article they say… 

“It’s really important to note this most recent study was related to fruit flies, under experimental conditions.

“As such, the relevance of these results to real people consuming real foods and beverages in everyday real life, is very limited, at best. The authors themselves note the significant limitations of their findings.”

The statement continued: “Numerous meta-analysises have concluded that replacing sugar with non-nutritive or low-energy sweeteners results in less energy consumed and weight loss.

“Further, expert reviews conclude that the evidence for an effect on increasing appetite or ‘sweet tooth’ is absent or inconclusive.”

THIS is why people are confused when a horrible study is pushed to the masses as truth! UGG>>>

Runners will soon be able to set goals and let the music drive them towards success or design an interval running session and ask the music to help them execute it, or even have the music keep their heart rate within the optimum range for the runner’s fitness and health level.

The Problems With the Advice to ‘Eat Less, Move More’ By 

You’ve heard it a million times. To lose weight, you have to eat less and move more, and if it doesn’t work — well, that’s on you. Failure suggests a lack of willpower, and perhaps a spotty attendance record at the gym. The advice is so familiar that it hardly seems worth questioning, but in truth, it tacitly promotes two outdated, unhelpful ideas about weight loss, presuming that self-control and exercise are the most important factors. The research, however, suggests that it’s much more complicated than that.
