Americans exercising less in 2013
Gallup
After a strong year for frequent exercise in the U.S., Americans' workout habits have backslid so far in 2013. The percentage of Americans exercising frequently declined each month in 2009, amid the recession, and then recovered slightly in 2010 and 2011. In most months of 2012, more Americans than ever before reported exercising frequently. This uptick in frequent exercise last year coincided with warmer than usual temperatures, setting numerous weather records.

Red wine compound resveratrol may negate health benefits of exercise
CBS News
Several studies have lauded the anti-aging effects of resveratrol, an antioxidant found in grape-based products like red wine. A new study, however, suggests the compound could have some drawbacks. Recent research has shown that consuming a large quantity of resveratrol in supplement form — about the equivalent of 700 bottles of red wine — may improve balance in elderly mice.

Children's exercise: Hour a day 'not enough'
Medical News Today
Current recommendations for children to exercise an hour every day are "insufficient" to protect them from heart and blood circulation problems later in life. Children under 10 years of age need at least 80 minutes of physical activity a day to keep them healthy, including 20 minutes of vigorous exercise, conclude researchers publishing in the journal BMC Medicine.

DIET & NUTRITION


Mindful eating for physical activity and athletes
By Dr. Shahla Khan
Most of us do not think about eating. In our rushed lives, we do not think about when we eat, what we eat and why we eat and how we eat. If we take the time to really think about and bring our attention to our eating behaviors, the benefits could not only help with weight control, but also in becoming more in tune with our body. It would make us more attentive to feelings of fullness and hunger and ultimately bring a whole new awareness to our eating behaviors.

2-day diets: How mini fasts can help maximize weight loss
NPR
This is not a detox diet, nor is it an extreme version of calorie restriction. Nope, the strategy of so-called 5-2 diets is to endure two days a week of mini-fasting. This doesn't mean starving yourself. Rather, it entails reducing your calorie intake during two days of the week down to somewhere in the range of 500 to 1,000 calories.

How many extra calories add up to obesity for kids?
HealthDay News via U.S. News & World Report
Overweight kids may be consuming far more calories than their doctors or parents realize, a new study suggests. The study, which is published in the issue of The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, updates the mathematical model doctors use to calculate the daily calorie needs of children and adolescents. The new model tries to more accurately estimate the energy requirements for growing girls and boys.

Researchers analyzed data on 169,000 kidney transplant recipients and found 14- to 16-year-olds had the highest risk of so-called graft loss starting one year after their transplant.

1 in 5 kids may 'outgrow' asthma
HealthDay News via U.S News & World Report
As many as one in five youngsters with asthma may grow out of the respiratory condition as they age, new research indicates. Girls and those who are allergic to furry animals, such as dogs and cats, may be out of luck, however. The study found that remission was less likely in such children. Swedish researchers who followed more than 200 children with asthma found that at 19 years of age, 21 percent were in remission, meaning they had no wheeze or need for inhalers.
