FITNESS & WELLNESS


To exercise more, sign a contract
The Wall Street Journal
Office workers who signed a contract to be more physically active on and off the job spent significantly less time sitting with relatively idle muscles than others who didn’t make a written commitment, says a study in the November issue of Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise. The study found workers who set contractual goals decreased muscle inactivity time by 33 minutes a day and increased light muscle activity by 21 minutes a day.

Los Angeles Times
When Ted Vickey was 24, he was brought on to run the fitness center at the White House. At the time, Bill Clinton was president and Vickey — a young entrepreneur — was in charge of ensuring that his administration had access to everything necessary to stay in shape.

Gatorade's workplace fitness program is not your average wellness initiative
Advertising Age
Imagine setting a fitness goal — and then announcing it to your entire workplace. Or joining your office-mates in a daily round of planks or jumping jacks. A little scary? Perhaps. But it's a way of life at Gatorade, whose in-house athletic program is a lot more ambitious than the typical employee wellness initiative.

DIET & NUTRITION


When healthy eating calls for treatment
The Wall Street Journal
The growing interest in eating healthy can at times have unhealthy consequences. Some doctors and registered dietitians say they are increasingly seeing people whose desire to eat pure or “clean” food — from raw vegans to those who cut out multiple major food sources such as gluten, dairy and sugar — becomes an all-consuming obsession and leads to ill health. In extreme cases, people will end up becoming malnourished.

No more diets — eat and live mindfully instead
The Huffington Post
Enter any bookstore, turn on the television or flip through a magazine — without a doubt you will be faced with shelves of diet books, commercials with celebrities touting unbelievable weight loss results or an advertisement for the latest fat-melting pill.

Researcher developing wearable device to track diet
Phys.org
Sensors and software used to track physical activity are increasingly popular, as smartphones and their apps become more powerful and sophisticated, but, when it comes to food, they all rely on the user to report meals. Dr. Edward Sazonov, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at The University of Alabama, hopes to change that through development of a sensor worn around the ear that would automatically track diet, giving medical professionals and consumers accurate information that can be missed with self-reporting.

Brain aging can be delayed in mice if they are placed on a high-fat diet, according to a study conducted by the Center for Healthy Aging at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and the National Institute of Health.

Sugar and diabetes: What even young, fit people need to know
Refinery29
November is Diabetes Awareness month, and although most people are aware of the disease, for many it’s still a somewhat abstract concern.
