Exercise vs. Diet: Which Is More Important for Weight Loss?

Exercise vs. Diet: Which Is More Important for Weight Loss? | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
Being healthy is simple, right? "Eat less, move more." That's easy to say, but practicality is one of the most important things when it comes to health and fitness. Recommendations like this are blanket statements that don't address practicality--so when it comes down to it, which is more important? Diet, or exercise?

Tatiana Koshman's curator insight, January 17, 11:16 PM

Most people would balk at the idea of exercising for 35 hours to lose 1 pound of fat. In my opinion, this is the main reason why exercise alone won't help you accomplish your fitness goals.  And, the hectic pace of the average person's lifestyle makes it difficult to do it with diet alone.  I am a strong advocate of combining the two and working with a professional to keep you accountable.  Read this article and tell me what you think.

How the Great Food War Will Be Won

How the Great Food War Will Be Won | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
Researchers from Iowa have shown that organic farming methods can yield almost as highly as pesticide-intensive methods. Other researchers, from Berkeley, California, have reached a similar conclusion. Indeed, both findings met with a very enthusiastic reception. The enthusiasm is appropriate, but only if one misses a deep and fundamental point: that even to participate in such a conversation is to fall into a carefully laid trap.

Syria threatened by food insecurity

Syria threatened by food insecurity | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
The Syrian agricultural sector is deteriorating at an increasing rate. Destructive conditions over the past four years suggest that Syria may soon be hit by a wall of food insecurity. This disaster is even more tragic because Syria was once described as the “breadbasket of Rome” due to its production of grain, especially wheat. Until recently, Syria was working diligently to achieve self-sufficiency and food security. Before the outbreak of the country’s recent tragedy, Syria was considered an agricultural country, as the industry accounted for nearly 24% of its GNP.

Why There's So Much Confusion Over Health and Nutrition

Why There's So Much Confusion Over Health and Nutrition | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
If you believed the internet, you'd think there's huge debate over whether eggs, coffee, or salt are good or bad for you. In reality, there's significant agreement on diet and health issues among experts, but the general public is conflicted. So why are we so confused when experts agree? Let's clear the air.

You Will Feel Better's curator insight, January 18, 10:39 AM

This article brings out some good points. Nutrition is a confusing subject, and there are so many products and agendas out there. Informed decisions require research. The bottom line is we are all lied to on constant basis, in advertising, public policy, education, and even by our trusted advisors passing on bad information to begin with.

Maricarmen Husson's curator insight, January 10, 9:48 PM

La torre WarkaWater es una estructura poco probable encontrar que sobresale del paisaje etíope. A los 30 metros de altura y 13 metros de ancho, no es un medio tan grande como su árbol del mismo nombre (que puede vislumbrarse 75 pies de altura), pero es llamativo, no obstante. La torre larguirucho, de bambú celosía forrada con malla de poliéster de color naranja, no es arte, aunque sí especie de lo parece. Más bien, la estructura está diseñada para escurrir el agua fuera del aire, proporcionando una fuente sostenible de H2O para los países en desarrollo.
