How some exercisers are using GPS to create art
ABC News
Some people exercise for weight loss. Others train for marathons. Bret Lobree cycles so he can draw a really nice picture of a turkey. Lobree is part of a growing group of exercisers who use their outdoor workouts to draw GPS images. After downloading a fitness app like RunKeeper, Nike+ or Strava Run, they turn on the global positioning system function of their smart device, then ride, run or walk through a route to trace an image or a word on a computerized map.

When you exercise: Check your motivation
The Huffington Post
Caitlyn Corradino writes: It's 5 p.m. Assuming a reasonable amount of sleep, there's only about five or six hours left in my day. I contemplate how I should spend them. Time is limited, so I must prioritize. So this leaves an hour or two to do something extra. My mind instantly assumes I should use this time to go to the gym.

DIET & NUTRITION


Study: Heart disease and diabetes risks tied to carbs, not fat
LiveScience
Is the pendulum swinging back? In what seems contrary to mainstream dietary advice, a small new study shows that doubling the saturated fat in a person's diet does not drive up the levels of saturated fat in the blood. Rather, the study found that it was the carbohydrates in people's diets that were linked with increased levels of a type of fatty acid linked to heart disease and type-2 diabetes.

The Huffington Post
The holiday season in full swing can only mean one thing ... that diet season is lurking in the shadows, waiting to make life miserable for all. Let's face it, while it would be great to stand our gluten-free, sugar-free, carb-free ground, the majority of us lose all self-control and go bonkers for biscuits as soon as Halloween hits.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT


Researchers tinker with a time-restricted diet in mice and find that it is remarkably forgiving
Medical Xpress
These days, with the abundance of artificial light, TV, tablets and smartphones, adults and children alike are burning the midnight oil. What they are not burning is calories: with later bedtimes comes the tendency to eat. A new study by researchers at the Salk Institute cautions against an extended period of snacking, suggesting instead that confining caloric consumption to an 8- to 12-hour period-as people did just a century ago-might stave off high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity.

Reuters
Moderate exercise is encouraged during pregnancy for plenty of reasons, but it may also help women avoid gaining too much weight, say U.K. researchers. They reviewed studies since the 1990s looking at whether exercise alone helps prevent excess weight gain during pregnancy, and found that it does, or helps with weight loss after delivery, and found that it doesn’t.

But the benefits of stretching are much argued in the halls of kinesiology departments and fitness centers across the country. One professor of sports medicine at the University of Virginia, Jay Hertel, explains the upside of a full range of motion and why sometimes feeling good is enough reason to get those shoulders rolling.

VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS


Why antioxidants don't belong in your workout
The New York Times
Antioxidant vitamins are enormously popular with people who exercise. The supplements are thought to alleviate muscle damage and amplify the effects of exercise. But recent studies have raised questions about whether antioxidants might be counterproductive for runners and other endurance athletes.
