Study: It's lack of exercise — not calories — that make us fat
TIME
A new study published yesterday in the American Journal of Medicine reported over the last 20 years there has been a sharp drop in Americans' physical exercise, and an increase in average body mass index, but that average caloric intake has remained the same. The Stanford University researchers looked at NHANES data over the last 20 years, and found that the number of U.S. women who reported doing no physical activity went from 19.1 percent in 1994 to 51.7 percent in 2010.

ScienceDaily
Cardiologists at UT Southwestern Medical Center found that sedentary behaviors may lower cardiorespiratory fitness levels. New evidence suggests that two hours of sedentary behavior can be just as harmful as 20 minutes of exercise is beneficial. The study, published in the online edition of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, examined the association between fitness levels, daily exercise, and sedentary behavior, based on data from 2,223 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

DIET & NUTRITION


Backlash has begun against gluten-free dieters
The Washington Post
The swelling ranks of Americans adopting gluten-free diets have given rise to another hot trend: people calling the whole thing a bunch of baloney. And then requesting that the baloney be sandwiched between two pieces of white bread. Served with a cookie for dessert.

Caffeine: Is it truly dehydrating?
Competitor
In North America, about 90 percent of adults regularly consume caffeine, mainly in liquid form, whether from cola, tea, coffee, or other caffeine-laced beverages. Caffeine is also present in cocoa and chocolate. Given this statistic, it is safe to assume that most endurance athletes ingest caffeine on a daily basis and perhaps even during training and competition.
