There is only a limited amount of food you can eat in a single day. In order to maximize the amount of nutrients you take in, it makes sense to spend your “calorie budget” wisely....

The Rise of the Minimalist Workout

The Rise of the Minimalist Workout | fitness, health,news&music | Scoop.it

People have been trying to figure out forever what the right amount of exercise is, but the focus lately is on the shortest period possible.

In the past, formal recommendations have called for a substantial amount of regular exercise. For example, published guidelines from the Health and Human Services Department in 2008 suggested 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week — the equivalent of five 30-minute walks. The guidelines added that 75 minutes of vigorous exercise a week, like jogging, could be substituted.

These guidelines were based on a large body of science showing that 150 minutes of moderate exercise was associated with a longer life span and a reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.

Studies have shown that 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week is associated with improved longevity and reduced risk of many diseases (obesity, diabetes).
Although these shorter more intense exercises are appealing for "busy" Americans, we don't know if the same long term health effects can be expected. In addition to the shorter time required in these workouts and therefore greater likelihood of adoption by those whop are motivated, another potential benefit is that the shorter duration of pain and discomfort with exercise may be an attractive aspect to help overcome the hurdles to exercise.

Why It's Important To Keep Your Gut Healthy

Why It's Important To Keep Your Gut Healthy | fitness, health,news&music | Scoop.it

"Be honest: when was the last time you thought about how healthy your digestive system was?"

 

The truth is that we only tend to think about it when something goes wrong, but Gut Week is all about focussing on how important it is to consider what you eat.

 

Think of the digestive system as the pistons of an engine - to get the most amount of energy, and to ward off future illnesses, it's important to keep it running right.
