Reuters via Business Insider
Despite an explosion of fitness advice from TV shows, blogs, books and online experts, a basic knowledge of health and exercise still eludes most Americans, according to a poll. It showed that almost three-quarters of more than 1,000 people questioned did not know that they had to burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound of fat, according to the poll by fitness equipment maker Nautilus Inc. The results were posted online, along with an interactive quiz.

How diet and exercise could help you land that pay raise at work in the long run
Yahoo Health
Your exercise regime is reduced to an expensive direct debit for the gym that you regularly toy with cancelling. Meal decisions, something you may have once pondered over, become determined by speed, convenience and proximity to the office. Stress drives the cravings for sugary foods that give you an instant fix. By compromising your diet, fitness and general well-being for the sake of more hours at work, you may believe that you’re making the necessary sacrifices to achieve your goal — whether that be a promotion, a pay raise or simply proving your dedication to the job.

The Apple Watch is winning in the battle of fitness trackers
Business Insider
Consumers are ditching their fitness trackers for the added functionality of smartwatches. And as smartwatches become increasingly easy to use and affordable, they will capture an even greater share of the wearables market, driving down demand for fitness- and activity-tracking bands, like the Fitbit. The fitness-band category will make up 42 percent of total wearables shipments in 2020, down from an estimated 48 percent share this year, and a 53 percent share in 2014.

5 dietary guidelines for a healthy heart
U.S. News & World Report
You've likely read about former president Bill Clinton's dramatic heart-health makeover and about superstar Beyoncé's substantial weight loss with a vegan diet — but did you know a plant-based prescription can be 20 times more powerful than today's leading drugs in treating and reversing heart disease?

Your stressed-out brain is breaking your diet
Quartz
You’ve decided to go on a diet. For the first few days, things go well — you avoid the donut, you munch on carrots, and you deal without sugar in your coffee. But then, during a particular hectic time at work, you fall off the wagon—guzzling sodas and chowing down on pizza. Why does stress impact the way we eat? Scientists from the University of Zurich published new research that shows moderate levels of stress may have a negative effect on self-control when it comes to eating.

How to exercise while undergoing cancer treatment
The Wall Street Journal
We’re often told to rest when we’re sick. But people undergoing cancer treatment, as well as cancer survivors, will benefit from exercising, according to Kathryn Schmitz, one of the lead authors of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Exercise Guidelines for Cancer Survivors. “I can’t emphasize how important it is to avoid inactivity,” says Dr. Schmitz, who is a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

The preliminary study, presented at the American Psychological Association's annual convention, recruited 195 men ages 18 to 65 who went to the gym at least twice a week and regularly consumed legal appearance- or performance-enhancing supplements — things like whey protein, creatine and L-carnitine.
