New Year's resolutions to exercise waver toward late January
The Wall Street Journal via Fox News
People with the noble New Year’s resolution to work out or work out more should mark their calendars: That resolve starts to waver in the third week in January, data shows. The pattern shows how difficult it is to make a new habit stick. Attendance is a delicate part of a gym’s business. Gyms need new members but face regulars who complain about crowds, waits and the poor etiquette of January newcomers.

How much exercise is too much?
U.S. News & World Report
Most of us know keeping active is crucial to our health and happiness. So it's not surprising that making exercise a regular habit was one of the top three New Year’s resolutions for 2015. But just how much exercise should we be doing — and is it possible to exercise too much? The current exercise guidelines for adults recommend at least 150 minutes per week of moderate physical activity — or 75 minutes per week of vigorous physical activity.

DIET & NUTRITION


From detox to elimination diets, skipping sugar may be the best bet
NPR
When it comes to detox diets, we totally get the appeal. Who's not drawn to the idea of flushing all the toxins out of our bodies — a sort of spring cleaning of our insides? It turns out the whole idea that you need to go on a special, draconian diet to detox your body really has no scientific backing.

Fat and sugar-heavy diet harms your brain — and makes you keep on eating
Medical Xpress
Do you eat only when you're actually hungry? Many of us eat even when our bodies don't need food. Just the thought of food entices us to eat. We think about food when we see other people eating, when we pass a favorite fast-food restaurant, when we see a scrumptious snack near the check-out at a convenience store. In addition, we're the targets of sophisticated advertising techniques designed to keep thoughts of food and the pleasures of eating almost constantly in our minds.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT


Too much sitting raises risk of death, even if you exercise
CBS News
Beware, couch potatoes: The evidence is piling up that too much sitting can take a serious toll on your health. A new study links sitting for prolonged periods of time to increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer and early death — even in people who get regular exercise. "Even if you do a half an hour or an hour or of exercise every day doesn't give us the reassurance that sitting for the other 23 hours is ok. In fact, it's not," said Dr. David Alter of the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, one of the authors of the study.

Studies: Long hours, shift work can be detrimental to health
By Denise A. Valenti
"Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'. Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin' ..." Dolly Parton's popular song "9 to 5" from 1980 lamented the difficulties and stress associated with having a traditional workday. But, an eight-hour day of working 9-to-5 really is not that bad — especially for your health. Several recent studies show the impact of work hours on health is related to the number of hours that are worked and also what time of day the work occurs.
