Study: It's not what you do, but how you get yourself to exercise that matters
ScienceDaily
Developing any habit — good or bad — starts with a routine, and exercise is no exception. The trick is making exercise a habit that is hard to break. According to a new Iowa State University study, that may be easier to accomplish by focusing on cues that make going for a run or to the gym automatic.

The Dallas Morning News

That 'fitness friendly' bar might backfire
USA Today
Energy bars are known to make people a prime target for the "fitness trap" — a tendency to eat more and exercise less when foods are labeled fitness or health-friendly. And surprisingly, eating that fitness-labeled bar might even lead people to slack off on their workouts.

Why the strongest science must prevail in nutrition policymaking
The Hill
In an attempt to avoid potential biases in the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommendations the United States Department of Agriculture established the Nutrition Evidence Library in 2006, with the specific intent of increasing the integrity of nutrition policymaking. The beauty of the NEL is that it created a system to evaluate scientific research using state-of-the-art methodology with a strict hierarchy of evidence and a rigorous transparent grading process. It was disappointing to see the 2015 DGAC use the NEL to address only 27 percent of its science-based research questions.

The Washington Post
Plain old bottled water is sharing more shelf space these days with flavored and fortified drinks. The labels on many drinks say they contain added minerals and even vitamins, or suggest that they pack the benefits of fruit and vegetables. Those minerals, or electrolytes, help regulate muscle function and water balance, which you can lose during intense exercise.
