To age well, walk
The New York Times
Regular exercise, including walking, significantly reduces the chance that a frail older person will become physically disabled, according to one of the largest and longest-running studies of its kind to date.

'Eat less, exercise more' isn't the answer for weight loss
TIME
You've heard it before: To lose weight, simply eat less and exercise more. In theory, that makes sense. Actually, it's not just in theory — science has proven that burning more calories than you consume will result in weight loss. But the trouble is that this only has short-term results. For long-term weight loss, it simply doesn't work, say renowned obesity experts in a recent JAMA commentary.

DIET & NUTRITION


Poor diet puts 1/3 of kids on path to diabetes
CNN
Donna Brazile writes: It's been a long time. A very long time. But I cannot forget my first school lunch. Call it free or call it charity, but it was a good meal that provided me, and so many others, with sustenance that made our school days more delightful. Our meals honored the traditions of the time — red beans and rice with smoked sausage, bread and perhaps dessert. And of course every Friday we had fish sticks, potato salad or French fries.

Sweet drinks and flavorful foods need not doom your diet
The Washington Post
People trying to slim down always have the same question for James Hill, executive director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the University of Colorado: "Should I drink diet soda?" Hill didn't have an answer until recently, when his team released the results of a study comparing the effects of water and "non-nutritive sweetened beverages" on participants in a weight-loss program.

5 reasons most diets fail and how to succeed
The Huffington Post
The average person gains 11 pounds for every diet they go on. Even worse, when they lose weight, they lose muscle and fat. When they regain weight, they gain back all fat. And since muscle burns seven times as many calories as fat, their metabolism is slower than when they started the diet. The cruel fact is that they then need even less calories to maintain their weight.

Debate over value of vitamin, mineral supplements is far from over
Medical Xpress
Researchers from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University and three other institutions have taken issue with recent claims that "the case is closed" on whether or not a multivitamin/mineral supplement should be taken by most people to help obtain needed micronutrients. In a correspondence to be published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the researchers reasoned that this type of dietary supplement helps fill nutritional gaps, improves general health, might help prevent chronic disease, will cause no harm and is easily worth the few cents a day that it costs.

The Huffington Post

Interval training may benefit men more than women
ScienceDaily
When it comes to reaping benefits of sprint interval training, it appears that men have won the battle of the sexes, if just barely. According to new research, men create more new proteins as a result of this exercise than women do. The good news, however, is that men and women experienced similar increases in aerobic capacity.

Learning another language may help the aging brain
HealthDay News via CBS News
Speaking two or more languages helps protect your brain as you age, even if you learn new languages as an adult, new research suggests. The study included 835 people born in Scotland in 1936 whose first language was English. They were given mental skills tests at age 11 and again in their early 70s. Of the participants, 262 were able to speak at least two languages, with 195 of them learning a second language before age 18, and the rest after that age.
