    Exercise the Weight Away? Here’s Why That’s Unlikely

    You’ve probably heard the whole, “calories in, calories out” thing a time or two, and when it comes to weight loss, shedding pounds actually does come down to burning more calories than you consume.

    Can We Really Blame a Slowing Metabolism?

    Starting in our 20s, and as we age, most of us believe we just naturally tend to gain weight because our metabolism slows. While this may be true after age 60, that is not necessarily the case beforehand.

    Studies are showing that in adulthood weight gain is likely caused by taking in more calories than are burned. Fitness guru, Dr. Gabe Mirkin goes on to tell us “Variables include how often you eat, the types of bacteria in your colon, your portion sizes and the types of foods you select, your exercise program and your daily activity level.,” all contribute to middle adulthood weight fluctuations.

    So before you go blaming your metabolism for those extra pounds, try some of these suggestions for new habits that could turn your life around and move you towards a lifestyle change that includes eating right.

  7. Why the Paleo Diet is Nonsense

    Why the Paleo Diet is Nonsense

    During the paleolithic age (about 2.6 million years ago), our ancestors ate a diet of mainly of fish, nuts, berries and game, and hunted using tools made from stone or bone. Their nutritional map was pretty much whatever they could scavenge from the land.
