Improving Metabolism

I ran across an article on Yahoo about foods that speed up metabolism. Probably nothing in there that is earth shattering but it is nice to have a reminder about stuff.

One of the best suggestions offered is to start reading the nutrition labels on the food to learn how many calories and how many servings are contained. For many snacks foods there are multiple servings per container. A label may say it contains 100 calories per serving but then there are 4 servings in the package. I've seen as many as 5 servings contained in a bag of chips that some might be considered an "individual" serving. Watch out!

As always, the best thing to do is drink plenty of water, eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains like oatmeal and get plenty of exercise. There is no magic wand for healthy living.

Interesting health articles

Over the last week or so the "Well" blog from the New York Times has had a couple of interesting posts that I thought you would find interesting.

The first post is about some disagreement about the benefits of strengthening the deep abdominal muscles and whether or not it actually benefits the "core" to help prevent back pain. It gives a good example of how the "core" muscles affect the spine and how they can help prevent back pain. The post also gives suggestions on exercises that you can do to help give you a strong and balanced "core".

The second post I found both interesting and fun is about medical myths that we have all believed for so long. I felt better given that doctors believed them too. My kids will be relieved when I tell them that all the gum they swallowed won't actually stay in their stomachs for 7 years. Although they will probably be upset that the "5 second" rule is not a valid excuse to eat food off the floor.

I you hope you find these to be useful and entertaining.
