It’s an ongoing debate in the nutrition world: Is one kind of diet—say, low carb or low fat—better than another for weight loss? It seems like research comes out on the regular that’s in favor of one kind of eating, only to be overshadowed by another study that suggests the opposite. So, what’s a health-conscious runner trying to drop a few pounds to do? Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Now, it looks there’s another wrinkle to add to the mix: The BMJ just published a report, which found that people who followed a low-carb diet burned more calories than those who consumed a high-carb diet. But before you get excited, we’re here to tell you why you should take the findings with, er, a grain of…sugar. What the New Low-Carb Study FoundIn the study, researchers assigned overweight and obese people who had previously lost weight to one of three weight-maintenance diets: the first to a high-carb diet (60 percent of their diet from … [Read more...] about A New Study Says You’ll Burn More Calories by Eating Low-Carb.

I spent this morning on Hampstead Heath, clambering up trees, throwing rocks, dragging logs, leaping over benches and wrestling my team-mates into the mud. No, I haven’t accidentally ended up in The Hunger Games — I’ve just been getting in touch with my inner cavewoman at a paleo-fitness class. Grunting definitely encouraged. “Most people spend the majority of the day sitting in a box in front of a screen and then go to another box — the gym — to sit down in front of a screen on an exercise bike,” says Ben Medder, a natural-movement coach who runs workshops for Londoners who are craving a connection with nature. “When was the last time you chased someone for fun? When was the last time you wrestled someone? It’s about rediscovering the innate play drive we had as children, which has been lost as adults.” Medder’s sessions involve arboreal locomotion (playing games up a tree), running, climbing, jumping, crawling and … [Read more...] about Into the wild: paleo workouts swap studio floor for the great outdoors
For some guys, there's nothing better than a good long run. Jogging for hours can give you a chance to clear your head, get out of the house, and burn through calories — all great perks you won't get from sitting on the coach. Lots of guys love the benefits they get from running, but hate the monotony of the activity. These sad sloggers only keep it up because they know its good for them. At a 10-minute-per-mile pace — roughly the average guy’s marathon pace — you’ll fry about 10 calories a minute, which isn't too shabby. Once you up that pace, you can burn even more, but the scenery probably won't get any more interesting even though it's zooming by a little faster. If anything, resentful runners will only feel worse, because the task just gets harder. Thankfully, non-runners shouldn't feel like they're trapped in a jogger's world if they want to quickly burn up some calories. If running isn’t your favorite cardio exercise, there are plenty of … [Read more...] about 11 Cardio Exercises That Burn More Calories than Running

ORLANDO – High-intensity interval training has become a big deal among workout enthusiasts, who like the short bursts of intense exercise alternated with longer periods of rest. But some folks still prefer low intensity workouts – repetitive moderate motion for 30 to 45 minutes. So which is better for you? ADVERTISEMENT “They both have their place,” said Niki Davis, fitness manager at the 365,000-square-foot RDV Sportsplex Athletic Club in Maitland. “Decide for yourself that you’re going to be someone who includes exercise in your life and just try to figure out what that is for you.” The difference between the two workouts, obviously, begins with intensity. Yet, as you look at your fitness – both how to get it and how to keep it – … [Read more...] about Which workout is best? High or low intensity?
