Here’s a recap of the best health and fitness articles I’ve read over the past week.
I’ve been seeing a lot of articles lately claiming that too much fruit is bad because of its sugar content but nothing that I’ve read has been convincing enough in my eyes. I pretty much agree with what this article says. Sugar in fruits are much different than processed sugars, especially in how they work in the body.
I don’t know much at all about essential oils, but I hear about their benefits all the time. I’d really like to start using them more often. I actually bought some tea tree oil for some mold I found under one of my dumbbells in the basement. I’ve been too lazy to use it though. I really need to get on that.
You’ve gotta move around and stretch to break apart the “fuzz.” 😉 Warning: Don’t watch this video while eating.
Very interesting studies! And from this post I’ve also discovered a new product that I want – a cobblestone mat. I’ll probably never get one though, because $50-60 is a little too much for something like that. I just need to do more barefoot walking.
Bret Contreras makes many great points in this article – you need to eat right, train consistently and you should to exercises that you enjoy. He also included a ton of exercise variations that you can use in place of an exercise that you don’t like.
I’m quite familiar with most of things listed in this post although I did learn some new stuff. The Nourishing Traditions cookbook and the Eating On The Wild Side.book both sound really interesting. I also think I should start buying things directly from Nutiva and I think I need to set up an Amazon Prime account.
