FITNESS & WELLNESS


Are we marketing fitness all wrong?
By Natalie Rodriguez
According to a recent poll, most Americans don't understand the basics of health and fitness. The poll found nearly 75 percent of people surveyed didn't know you have to burn 3,500 calories to lose one pound of fat. Only 35 percent of those surveyed knew eggs are a good source of protein, and so on. Big fail, America. When so many people want to be healthy and fit, how is it that we know so little about fitness and nutrition? As it turns out, fitness marketing might be the culprit.

Suffering from exercise burnout? Take 2 steps for a 'fitness refresh'
The Huffington Post
Most of us are pretty impatient. When we decide that we want something, we tend to want it now and are ready to do whatever it takes. This can be a good thing since a little impatience can be a great motivator to take action. However, it can also lead to taking on too much, which is often what happens when it comes to getting in shape.

Why eating late at night may be particularly bad for you and your diet
The Washington Post
Loath as you may be to admit it, chances are that at some point you have found yourself in the kitchen late at night, devouring some sweet, salty or carb-rich treat even though you weren’t hungry. Scientists are getting closer to understanding why people indulge after dark and to determining whether those nighttime calories wreak more havoc — whether they drive up the risk of weight gain and of chronic diseases such diabetes — than ones consumed earlier in the day.

The Boston Globe
Even if you usually opt for choose kale salad, grilled salmon, and fresh fruit, something about summertime — like the winter holiday season — tempts us to relax the rules about what we eat and drink.

A sleep disorder may be harming your body and brain
NPR
It's time for consumers to wake up to the risks of sleep disorders, scientists say. More than 50 million adults in the U.S. have a disorder such as insomnia, restless leg syndrome or sleep apnea, according to an Institute of Medicine report. And it's now clear that a lack of sleep "not only increases the risk of errors and accidents, it also has adverse effects on the body and brain," according to Charles Czeisler, chief of the division of sleep and circadian disorders at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

Australian researchers found that "cardiorespiratory fitness" reduced the risk that this potentially dangerous heartbeat will return by as much as 84 percent — even more than losing weight.
