Short bouts of high-intensity exercise before a fatty meal best for vascular health
ScienceDaily
A short burst of intensive exercise before eating a high fat meal is better for blood vessel function in young people than the currently recommended moderate-intensity exercise, according to a new study. Cardiovascular diseases including heart attacks and stroke a leading cause of death, and the process underlying these diseases start in youth. An impairment in the function of blood vessels is thought to be the earliest event in this process, and this is known to occur in the hours after consuming a high fat meal.

American medical schools aren't teaching the importance of exercise
TIME
Many doctors are finishing medical school without getting any training in the importance of exercise, a new study shows. Researchers at Oregon State University found that less than half of physicians trained in the U.S. in 2013 had received any instruction on exercise, based on curriculum records listed online. Of the 118 of 170 American medical schools that listed their curriculum online, 51 percent of schools didn’t offer exercise-related classes, 21 percent had one class and 82 percent didn’t require students to learn about physical activity.

DIET & NUTRITION


Nuts are a nutritional powerhouse
The New York Times
Jane Brody writes: Sadly, for more than half my life, I had avoided some of nature’s most perfect and healthful foods: nuts and peanuts. I had been mistakenly told as a teenager that nuts were fattening and constipating, effects I certainly wanted to avoid. But based on what I have learned to the contrary from recent studies, I now enjoy them daily as nuts or nut butters in my breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and snacks.

The Huffington Post
If you've paid attention to weight loss trends or even just the Internet over the past few years, you've probably heard of the paleo diet.

Don't eat your children's food
U.S. News & World Report via Yahoo News
David L. Katz writes: No, this is not about noshing on plate scraps. Nor is it about "kid food," per se. I have written about that before. For that matter, my son has weighed in on that topic, addressing it both to you and directly to his peers, your kids. He has done so more than once, growing from a boy to a young man in the process, with his subject matter — food — the one and only construction material. It's our own mini-version of "Boyhood."

Foods you should eat instead of taking vitamins
TIME
The supplement chain GNC announced on Monday that it plans to overhaul its quality control systems with new high-tech testing.
