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?

Do artificial sweeteners really make you fat or is it just something to get you talking? What happens to your body after just one workout? What is Tom Brady’s diet and supplement program?

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>>>

“Depending on the type of workout you’re doing, there can be lots of beneficial changes, including improved cardiovascular efficiency, increased bone density, higher metabolic efficiency, increased lean muscle mass and of course decreased body fat.” And most people would be surprised to know how much of that good stuff can start in just one exercise session”

Google Maps Creator Introduces New Music Technology & Fitness App Weav, Deals With Sony, WMG by www.allaccess.com

Adaptive Music delivers a dynamic experience that would not be possible with traditional static music. For running, the music matches the runner’s step cadence, so that each step always lands exactly on a beat. WEAV’s technology continuously re-arranges the music in real-time to sound perfect at any tempo. 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.

Rob Gronkowski is all in on Tom Brady’s diet plan — with one big exception By Cindy Boren

“When you think about nutritional supplements, you think about other types of training methods and training techniques. I think that’s a great thing,” he said in a WEEI interview almost two years ago. “I think when you talk about a green supplement — it’s vegetables. It’s eating better. So much of my diet is based on an acid-alkaline principle, which to me does reduce inflammation in my body. When you run around and take hits all day for a living, that’s a really positive thing for me. I would love to encourage all my teammates to eat the best way they possibly can, to have high school athletes [do the same]

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.
