FITNESS & WELLNESS


The drudgery of treadmills
The New York Times
Many people find a treadmill workout more draining than the same activity on a sidewalk or track. In a 2012 experiment, runners were asked to jog on a track while rating how difficult the exercise felt. Then they hopped on treadmills without speed displays and were told to set the machine to a pace that felt the same as what they had just run. Almost all chose a speed that was much slower. On the treadmill, this gentle pace felt as difficult as swifter running on the track.

You're thinking about fitness all wrong
Chicago Tribune
It's mid-January, and you may feel like a fitness failure. Join the gym, find a yoga class or lose 10 pounds? Not a chance. Go from couch to 5K? Still on the couch. Achieve that feeling of euphoria your friends say they get after SoulCycle? It's still Greek to you. Instead of calling it quits for the year, what if you resolved to change your mindset about fitness?

5 exercise machines that aren't worth your time
Yahoo Health
Machines tend to get a bad rap on the gym floor — demonized as non-functional, even dangerous, according to some fitness pros. Still, they’re not necessarily just a bunch of dead weight. Exercise machines can be helpful for beginners who want to start building strength but don’t necessarily have the foundation of lifting with free weights. They can also be a great way to tack on some extra volume at the end of a workout, when a lifter may be too tired to maintain proper form with a dumbbell or barbell.

DIET & NUTRITION


The best diet for men versus women
Yahoo Health
Should men and women take different nutritional approaches to weight loss? Jay Rishel, 34, still dreams of tater tots. But that’s about all the computer systems administrator in York, Pennsylvania, misses about his old, carb-heavy lifestyle. Since going on a ketogenic diet last July — trading his potatoes for bacon — he’s lost more than 30 pounds and rarely feels hungry. “It kind of changes your whole relationship with food,” he says.

8 strategies for healthy eating and weight loss
The Huffington Post
It's hard to believe there was ever a time when diet books didn't exist, when home-cooked meals were the norm not the exception, and when people intuitively ate what was good for them. With the plethora of information available today about food, diet and nutrition, we should all be healthier than ever, but instead we're just more confused about what to eat or not to eat.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT


When exercise does more harm than good
TIME
Americans as a whole don’t exercise enough — at least that’s what the latest studies show — and so the message is clear: get more active, take walks, Let’s Move! Basically anything is better than sitting on the couch. But how much exercise is enough? That’s a hotly debated question for which experts still don’t have a satisfactory answer. But given that most of us are starting from a sedentary position, the assumption has long been the more the better.

Older adults: Double your protein to build more muscle
ScienceDaily
You are what you eat, especially when it comes to how your body builds protein. It is well known that consuming protein stimulates the body's cells to build protein. However, getting older combined with eating less protein can lead to a decline in the body's muscle-building efficiency. Maintaining and building muscle is especially important for older individuals.

VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS


Ending the multivitamin debate: Why taking one may actually save your life
Fox News
Numerous studies in recent years have suggested that vitamins and supplements have no beneficial effect on your health. Some researchers have gone as far as to warn that popping them may be harmful. But the fact is that most of us cannot get the vitamins and minerals we need from food alone, and multivitamins are vital to bridging that gap. According to a study published in the January 2015 edition of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, roughly 40 percent of adults are deficient in vitamin A, C, D, E, calcium and magnesium.
