FITNESS & WELLNESS

Pilates vs. yoga
The New York Times
Is Pilates better than yoga for strengthening exercises? The answer depends to a large degree on what it is you're trying to strengthen. In general, Pilates exercises, originally developed by the fitness trainer Joseph Pilates, target the core muscles around the spine. If your aim is to strengthen your midsection, then Pilates is a fine choice. In a small but well-designed study last year, nine sedentary women who completed 36 weeks of supervised Pilates training bulked up their abdominal muscles by as much as 20 percent, while also lessening any existing muscular imbalances there.

Walla Walla Union-Bulletin
Rest is just as important to creating overall wellness for your body as any of the other ingredients for health. Yet, we don’t hear much about it. We hear about how cardiovascular exercise is good for your heart, lungs and waistline. We hear about how resistance training is excellent for building muscles and your metabolism. We hear how stretching is important for preventing injuries and maintaining your body’s range of motion. But what do we know about resting?

The Huffington Post
If one more person tries to tell us we just have to run a marathon or try their favorite CrossFit box or take up barre classes, maybe we will just puke, faint or die. And while fitness — and diet, nutrition, sleep — is incredibly personal, and definitely not "one-size-fits-all," there are some pieces of advice that really might work for most of us — and certainly won't result in blood loss). Here are seven recommendations we find pretty easy to accept.

For 'Biggest Loser' trainer, diet trumps exercise in weight loss
Reuters via Fox News
Celebrity trainer Bob Harper, of the weight-loss TV show "The Biggest Loser," has built a career putting very obese people through some grueling fitness paces but if he's learned anything from the experience, it's that diet trumps exercise every time. The Los Angeles-based trainer, who was born on a cattle farm in Tennessee and arrived in California some 20 years ago, said gone are the days when he believed it was possible to just exercise the pounds away.

Junk food may lead to mental health problems in children
Medical Xpress
New research suggests that mothers with unhealthy diets during pregnancy are more likely to have children with behavioral problems. It has also shown that children with unhealthy diets have increased symptoms of depression and anxiety, as well as aggression and tantrums. Deakin University researchers, working with Norwegian collaborators, have found for the first time that a clear relationship exists between mothers' diets during pregnancy, as well as children's diets during the first years of life, and children's mental health.

MedPage Today
A diet high in antioxidant-rich fruit may help protect against the development of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, a Swedish study suggested. Through 13 years of follow-up, men and women who said they ate more than two servings of fruit a day had a 25 percent lower risk of developing AAA compared with those who ate less than 0.7 servings a day, according to Otto Stackelberg, M.D., of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and colleagues.

BBC News
A way of firing up the body's immune system in order to attack cancer has been discovered by U.S. researchers. The immune system is delicately balanced so it attacks invaders but not the body's own tissues. Animal studies suggested that shifting the balance could open up new treatments for cancer, the team from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia said.
