Always tweaking something!

Great Article

Day 2070 Bonus Coverage

This article on diet and exercise from the New York Times Magazine explains a lot.

Go read it, it’s much better than me paraphrasing everything. And ladies – it starts to explain what you all knew to be true for years. Namely that women’s metabolism is biased towards retaining stores of body fat. Why? Reproduction. But they offer good news too.

Go read. I’ll repost the link for a couple days.

  1. I’d commented on that article which was then eaten up by the ethermonsters. Yes, it is unfortunate, for sure, for us gals. We have to dance backwards and in heels.

    I was using this as an example of a default setting. Mine now includes exercise, which for years of yo-yoing, it didn’t. So that’s a big change and hopefully one that will continue to serve me.

      I can save you the effort on the dance floor! The combination of activity & diet sure does seem to be the key – need the activity to keep the metabolism churning. Bike riding weekend here!! That’ll get the internal engines humming!

    Acylated and ghrelin seem like two excellent words to file away for some future game of Scrabble. It almost sounds like the key to weight control is to rid your life of chairs.

      Better be using the right dictionary! I’ll always vouch for you though.

      Some meetings at work adopted that “no chairs” theme. Makes for shorter, more efficient meetings, and I burn off that extra creamer in my coffee. Can’t fault that!
