13 ways to exercise with your dog
CNN
Dogs make the best workout buddies. They never complain about hills, or cancel on you last-minute. And they're always stoked to follow you out the door. That energy can be contagious: research from Michigan State University found that canine owners were 34 percent more likely to get the recommended 150 minutes of exercise a week than folks who didn't have a dog.

We asked an exercise scientist what overlooked workout everyone should be doing
Tech Insider
We all know we should go to the gym (or otherwise work out) but the question for beginners is always the same: What am I supposed to do when I get there? The truth is, many people don't know what the best option is for their health and fitness.

DIET & NUTRITION


What diet experts eat at McDonald's
Eat This, Not That! via Yahoo Health
Yes, it’s true: Sometimes even diet experts eat at the Golden Arches. We may imagine top nutritionists spending all their time foraging at the farmers’ market for the perfect stalk of kohlrabi, but the truth is, they’re just like us. They have the same intense time crunches driving them to the nearest drive-thru when they’re in a pinch.

Reap the benefits of a vegetarian diet — without ditching meat entirely
Fox News
Last month, a study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine showed that vegetarian diets result in more weight loss than non-vegetarian diets. While the study is new, we’ve known for a while that vegetarians may experience a variety of health benefits, including reduced risk of hypertension and diabetes. Just a few months ago, the JAMA Internal Medicine reported that a plant-based diet can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer, and studies have shown that it can even lower your chances of getting cardiovascular disease. But does this mean that going vegetarian automatically makes you healthier than a meat eater?

By Bob Kowalski

But does involvement in athletics result in success that extends beyond health? "Sports have the potential to develop many of the personality characteristics valued in life: determination, perseverance, strong work ethic, cooperation, teamwork, fair play, honesty, and much more," said SHAPE America President Steve Jefferies.

This kind of body fat burns calories more quickly
TIME
For years researchers have been tantalizing us with news of a mysterious type of fat that can burn through calories and keep blood sugar levels in check. Unlike white fat that tends to sit in deposits where we least want them, this other kind of fat — called brown fat — is scant inside the human body. While newborns tend to have more brown fat, the average adult harbors barely two ounces of the stuff.

Vitamin D won't strengthen older women's bones
HealthDay News via WebMD
High doses of vitamin D do not appear to protect postmenopausal women from the dangers of osteoporosis, new research indicates. "While high-dose vitamin D did indeed increase calcium absorption, the increase was only 1 percent and it did not translate into gains in spine, hip or total body bone mineral density," said study author Dr. Karen Hansen.

Consumer Reports
Worried about your child’s vitamin and mineral intake? Most healthy children get what they need through their regular diet — however imperfect.
