CAZ: Good night's rest equals 3 doughnuts

http://www.newsherald.com

"1 donut = 960 sit-ups," flashed one message. Well, no more doughnuts for me, because I'm good for maybe about 50 sit-ups on a good day, 60 if I'm on a downhill incline. The bad news continued. "French fries = 1,825 sit-ups" flashed across.What about the carrots Newsom promotes? My cup of carrot slaw is 130 calories.I headed for the Internet. Sit-ups, it turns out, are not the preferred way to burn calories because they are not a cardiovascular exercise, but it's certainly more tortuous sounding, so kudos to Newsom there.

http://news.scotsman.com

DOCTORS are giving pills to patients with diabetes rather than waiting to see whether exercise and diet will control their condition, experts warned yesterday. A study of more than 650 patients newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes found that more than a third were given medication within the first month. Guidelines say people with this form of diabetes – which is linked to being overweight – should be given advice on diet and exercise before they are started on pills.

Diets weighed up

http://www.nhs.uk

“Low carbohydrate diets, such as Atkins, do not work any better than old fashioned calorie counting,” The Daily Telegraph reported. The newspaper said that researchers have found that diets in which starchy foods like potatoes and pasta are restricted work no better than diets that have no carbohydrate restrictions. This large, well conducted study tracked over 800 people assigned to different low-calorie diets for over two years. The weight loss by those on a high carbohydrate diet was not significantly different from those on a low carbohydrate diet.

Obama pushes centers as one focus of health reform

http://www.reuters.com

President Barack Obama has been vague about details of his healthcare reform efforts, but he provided a hint on Monday of one direction he could take -- community health centers. As he announced the nominations of his two top health executives, Obama highlighted the allocation of $155 million to 126 community health centers as part of the $787 billion economic stimulus package. "These health centers will expand access to care by helping people in need -- many with no health insurance -- obtain access to comprehensive primary and preventive health care services," Obama told a news conference.

Partner Yoga Pose: Down Dog Scorpion

http://www.fitsugar.com

Backbends top my list of favorite yoga poses. It feels great to arch my spine and stretch through my abs and chest. Some backbends are more challenging than others though, like Scorpion. Since it involves balancing on your forearms as well as bending your back, you might need a little help getting into it. You can do Scorpion on a ball or in front of a couch, but if you have a friend nearby, give this partner pose a try.

The Full Benefits of Acai Berry Are Not Equally Available In All Acai Products

http://www.transworldnews.com

The benefits of taking a high quality organic freeze dried acai berry supplement have been well-publicized. This Brazilian fruit is now a worldwide sensation largely because it is thought to contain unusually high amounts of healthy antioxidants. But the level of antioxidants and nutritional benefits vary greatly from product to product. This is because different forms of the fruit are processed in different ways, and some of those ways will preserve the nutrients while others will largely destroy them.
