.......interesting things about fitness, strength, diet and performance.
The blog seemed so good until he started arguing that the obesity epidemic was caused by inactivity but not by eating too much...
Hi Stephan Yes I wouldn't agree with everything on the blog but they do have some good material and well written. Thanks for the comment
Hi,Those of you who labor under the delusion that health care entitlements are unconstitutional?Medicare has been around for nearly 45 years now. When do you think it's existence will be successfully challenged in the Supreme Court?
From the Beeb (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-18985141)"The idea that exercise is more important than diet in the fight against obesity has been contradicted by new research.A study of the Hadza tribe, who still exist as hunter gatherers, suggests the amount of calories we need is a fixed human characteristic.This suggests Westerners are growing obese through over-eating rather than having inactive lifestyles, say scientists."
AsclepiusThanks for that. Walking to work this morning I was struck by the truth of this when I saw a couple of obese joggers / fitness walkers go past. Not only should such people be banned from wearing lycra, it emphasises that eat less is more important than move more.
You definitely can't out-train a bad diet.
re wearing lycra, I forget which comedian said it but"Spandex is a privilege, not an obligation"particularly funny when they are wearing black tights in 93 degree weather
I would agree that the obesity is a food not an activity issue. However, I think it is more about food quality than volume. The poor quality is waht drives the overconsumption, in particular refined carbs and low quality fats.
