FITNESS & WELLNESS


Short bursts of exercise are better than exercising nonstop
TIME
You don't need to be working out for longer, but you should probably be working harder — in spurts, at least. Studies have shown that interval training can help people burn more fat, and increase fitness levels even after just 15 or 20 minutes of exercise. And a new study found that people with Type 2 diabetes benefited more from interval walking — their blood sugar was more controlled — compared to people who walked continuously.

What the government got wrong about nutrition — and how it can fix it
The Huffington Post
For decades, the U.S. government had a simple message on diet: To avoid chronic illnesses like diabetes, obesity and heart disease, Americans should cut back on saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar and sodium.

The obesity rate has more than doubled since 1980 and now hovers between 31 and 35 percent.
