FITNESS & WELLNESS


Older athletes have a strikingly young fitness age
The New York Times
Older athletes can be much younger, physically, than they are in real life, according to a new study of participants in the coming Senior Olympics. The study found that the athletes’ fitness age is typically 20 years or more younger than their chronological age, providing a clear inspiration to the rest of us to get out and start moving more.

We asked an exercise scientist for his definition of someone who is 'in shape'
Business Insider
It's a strange, vague goal that many of us strive for: Getting "in shape." But what does that actually mean? And how do you get there? It may be the most popular phrase in the world of exercise, but it's hard to pin down a clear definition, or know how to reach that ideal in practice. We spoke recently to Shawn Arent, an exercise scientist at Rutgers University, and asked him about this.

Debunking the greatest gender fitness myths
Medical Daily
Justin Caba and Samantha Olson write: My coworker Justin and I had set out on a two-month experiment to disprove one of the greatest myths in the fitness world — where men and women belong in the gym. Justin lifted weights and I ran, making our workout routines the typical male and female counterparts of athleticism. While men tend to shy away from the treadmill in fear they’ll develop the lean build of a cross country runner, women, on the other hand, are reluctant to lift a weight to avoid building bulky muscles.

Is the FDA's trans fat ban really the answer to our obesity epidemic?
By Natalie Rodriguez
The time has finally come for Americans to wave goodbye to their toxic friend trans fat — a veteran contributor to heart disease in the United States. Trans fat extends the shelf life of our favorite processed foods, along with assisting in taste and texture. In 2013, the Food and Drug Administration issued a preliminary finding indicating that partially hydrogenated oils were not "generally recognized as safe," and recently finalized the determination.

Step away from the burger: Why a 'Western' diet is bad for your health
CNN
The developing world is seeing rapid urbanization, with more than half of the world's population now living in cities and this figure expected to reach 70 percent by 2050. But with this progression comes an urban lifestyle — often meaning less physical activity and the consumption of a "Western" diet.

Fortification coming to new foods
MedPage Today
A common way of addressing nutrient deficiencies is to add whatever vitamin or mineral is lacking into a common food product. That's how we got iodized salt and folic acid-fortified grain products, and why advocates of "golden rice" — engineered to biosynthesize beta-carotene, the source of vitamin A — have been trying to bring it to populations with severe vitamin A deficiencies.

In health law, a boon for diet clinics
The New York Times
Dr. Michael Kaplan looked across his desk at a woman who had sought out his Long Island Weight Loss Institute and asked the question he often poses to new patients: “Where do you think you go wrong with food?” The 38-year-old patient was about 20 pounds overweight and, as she described it, desperate. Weight Watchers, nutritionists — she had tried them all in vain.

Rewards of exercise aren't the same for everyone
Futurity
We all know that exercise generally helps the cardiovascular system, but does working out pay off equally for everyone? Some of the benefits of exercise are greater for men, people under 50, and among those battling Type 2 diabetes or other cardiovascular conditions, report researchers. Researchers analyzed the results of 160 randomized clinical trials with nearly 7,500 participants. The review appears in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

Dreaming improves your memory and performance
The Huffington Post
When you sleep really deeply, your brain starts to recharge. Your learning and memory are enhanced. And when you spend enough time in the deepest stages of sleep, your muscular coordination and immune systems also benefit. Normal sleep runs in cycles, with each one ending with the dream state of REM sleep.

'Fitness' foods may be making us less fit
The Boston Globe
Wheaties, “the breakfast of champions,” has been featuring athletes on its boxes since it first put Lou Gehrig there in 1934. Today, many other food products are packaged to suggest they promote fitness: protein bars, energy drinks, yogurt and more. There’s even "fit and active" pork bacon. Just because a food is marketed as a “fitness” food, however, doesn’t mean it will improve one’s health.
