TIME
We get it, you’re busy. But it turns out you don’t need very much time in the gym to improve your health. In fact, it might only take one — yes one — high intensity minute of exercise to do the trick. New research published in the journal PLOS One shows sedentary men and women who did one minute of intense, all-out exercise as part of a full 10-minute workout three times a week for six weeks improved their endurance and lowered their blood pressure.

Can you ever exercise too much?
The Atlantic
Those who stay abreast of the latest health news are well accustomed to the ever-expanding list of health risks — high-fructose corn syrup, carbs, sitting, etc. But when it comes to exercise, most of the public-health focus is dedicated to identifying the risk factors that are associated with too little exercise, not too much. That’s simply because most Americans don’t meet the recommended weekly dose of 150 minutes of cardiovascular exercise.

USA Today
In this season of indulgence, most calorie watchers know the price of piling their buffet plates with too many goodies. But they may not know the diet damage they can do with the drink in their other hand. "People don't think about calories from beverages in the same way they think about calories from food," says Margo Wootan, director of nutrition policy at the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington, D.C.
